    Morning Everyone. Last day till next Monday is a nice feeling. Currently very moist out with more promised, oh well. Beer later with eldest hopefully, have convinced wife that painting should only be done in sunny dry weather and not winter.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    First day back work meh and whilst I’ve been away the wife has started to paint the lounge, which means I’m painting later :(

    Morning folks,
    Rather moist out but not actually raining, managed to wobble in at least and successfully dodged the largest puddles. One of those days that I was very grateful to have mudguards. Should be reasonably busy today trying to get things sorted before a couple of days out of the office. Not looking forward to coming back on Fryday and having to deal with all the screw ups left for me.
    Had a phone call from the lad this morning, he was telling me the best technique for sleeping is to drink enough that you go to sleep not caring about the heat and humidity, then he sweats so much in the night all the alcohol sweats out so he doesn't have a hangover. I don't think it works like that and suspect he's turned into a TLW2 and it's just that his blood is now mostly made up of alcohol.
    TLW, would it have been better if your Mrs got the painters in? Have you recovered from the ride?

    Got a cough I think. Dampish and warmish. Still in 3/4's and arm warmers. Cba to fix my rear brake last night. Will go and tinker with it later on.

    Morning
    Coming down like stair rods here, so it could be a damp walk into town. Apparently I need to buy a hot water bottle for my shoulder according to physio other than that he’s pleased with how it’s healing.
    Might manage a turbo session later and then a walk with the missus as she has informed she starting a get fit and healthy campaign. :roll:

    Sitting in a nice little restaurant this evening and there’s a menu item just for you. Pineapple curry with pork and betel leaf.

    Work meh. It’s very over-rated.
  • sungodsungod Posts: 12,198
    pork and pineapple, it's a great match

    i had a pineapple and cumin caipirinha at a bar last week, was pretty good too

    I picked the roast vegetable curry instead as I know this place and their idea of “mild” gives me numb lips. The pineapple one is listed as hot and spicy. Best avoided with my constitution these days. :(

    That would mean the beer tab wouldn't get paid. End of the world scenario.

    Windy with scrawly showers here. We had summer yesterday.

    Doing the run around and need to keep toots occupied.

    I went into Google looking for an image about being like a pineapple and found what could be child of SG.

    When are you off SG? Are you taking your bike? I look forward to vicariously battling against the headwinds, and swooping down the descents.

    another week yet, with shiny bike

    really just getting stuff together for now, sorting out warm weather gear and retrieving bits from various business bags to go into my big rucksack and see if anything is missing/dodgy, discovered last week that the gauge had failed on my travel pump, but fitted a new one yesterday

    Year end deadlines etc etc. I was so bored I took a break to offer personal financial advice :) Still, nearly half way through the week for me.

    Morning

    Wet this morning, still wet. Brought running stuff but too wet. Also really tired, not sure why. TT later, think it might be wet.

    Just fetched some aero bars from the Amazon locker. £16 what can go wrong :)

    an entire ccountry has disappeared according to gmc partner

    either there's a gaping hole where it used to be, or there's a booboo somewhere in their system

    Afternoon fellow Pineapple fans, dank one today. Bit of bad news at the weekend, someone decided attempt to mate my car with a Transit, clearly the results weren't suitable resulting in both parties being put down.
    No one injured car became a collection of airbags driver of the van claimed not to have seen me but me.

    Bit achey going into work but oh well.
  • sungodsungod Posts: 12,198
    good thing you are ok

    Oops. Main thing is you're not injured. Guess the insurance companies will have their usual bun fight.

    Exactly, fortunately the dash cam caught the lot of it showing me stationary at a junction so they cant really claim I was in the wrong. But yes im OK its only a car end of the day.
