    Morning, minus 3 at the moment looks like it’s been freezing for a while, 15mph winds to go with it it feels like full winter kit wii be required, or will it be the rollers
    I will make my mind up after I have walked the dog
    Have a good weekend

    Jesus! You really have got to wake early to be first to the daily thread.

    Anyway....

    Saturday, Lost, in deepest, darkest Burgess Hill

    Staying with my parents for a few days, might pop into Brighton today. Thanks for all your kind words yesterday, much appreciated. Lad knows and is processsing the news slowly but doing fine so far.

    Now back to the usual B.S please :D Can hoppy fall off something, that's usually a good distraction.

    Should still be aleep but the wife won't let me kill the ferkin cat that is used to me be up at this time :(

    next door are on holiday for 3 months and she passed away yesterday, stunned silence in the local last night when we found out. One of those people loved by everyone

    Morning peeps. Frosty end to the night shift luckily back at home about to wake the Mrs up. She really likes cold hands.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Wet outside but sky looks clear. Just having scramblies before heading out for a couple of hours then hopefully selling a bike to help pay for the S5.

    I am still in two minds, it’s just started to rain here, it’s looking more like the rollers

    Cold and frosty out, so I'm staying in, at least until I have to take the dog out. Hopefully I can stay upright, but if I do topple over, I'll try and get it on tape.

    Well bounced back Seano. We need to get you out for that beer before the weather gets too warm :wink:

    Good news for me this morning as I'm back behind the wheel so have been out in the car to the shops - makes a decent change after 3 weeks :) Onwards to physio as there's still a fair bit recovery to do. Next targets = (1) get running and (2) get back on the communter bike. I think I'll have a coffee first though.

    Morning folks, traditional slow start has been had. Now having a coffee to help ease myself into the day. Mostly pottering about today, no rush. Pub to watch the rugby with some mates later. Pleased to hear you’re on the mend Stevo.
  • Covered a few seasons today. Hot sun, howling wind, belting rain, cool change.

    Still unpacking stuff and finding places to put things. Nearly done...

    Thanks V - birthday treat to myself of sorts to be driving again! Still a lot of work to do to get properly sorted though.

    seems a bit selfish to have all three, if you've got our howling wind and belting rain, surely we should get your hot sun

    Died on the ride in the wind and rain today.

    Must eat more than a bowl of scrambled eggs before heading out.

    Now eating my own body weight in Bombay Mix.

    Icy last night so didn't bother getting up early to go riding, forecast was awful too.
    Ended up spending the day in Shrewsbury doing not a lot, and the weather was decent all day.
    They didn't have much in the Trek concept store.

    That's the Cruddy greeting, he might not get it.

    Now digging out a few golden oldies from the 80's. Anyone remember Wendy James and Transvision Vamp?
