    Why aren’t am I awake :(

    Going for a run soon as I’ve got a few events coming up which I’ve forgotten about in the pursuit of a crit race crown

    Then into town with the rugrats followed by chainsaw stuff and then the pub

    Morning Folks. Ride out with a few mates on CX bike then catching up with another to drop young oxo,s sadly outgrown road bike off for his lad. New addition joins the family permanently today so will be returning to a mutt as well as OH and brats. Enjoy the sun, just remember the sun cream as I forgot yesterday.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Toast and coffee. Then the Hoppys are going camping. I made Mrs H3 buy all the gear, as this her hare-brained scheme. I will eat humble pie if we are still considering camping as weekend entertainment this time next year, but I have a feeling this might be an expensive one or two time experience.

    My head hurts. Good night was had, started early and finished late as we didn’t get turfed out and left some time in the early hours. Beer was good, much nonsense was spouted. Not all of it from me.
    Today will consist of not doing very much combined with lazing and maybe a little hair of the dog.

    Haircut, shops, jobs etc.

    Last night's drinking was delayed due to a water leak in the garage. Had to call the plumber out but luckily we know him so we didn't get totally fleeced. So a bit tired today - will power on through with coffee.

    Morning.
    Out early for a walk with the missus round Harland moor, fair bit of wildlife spotted and a dead Adder found. I didn’t think you got them round here, might revise my leg wear.
    Later will be date with a hot garage and turbo, I can’t wait. :?

    Well, almost. New chainsaw got its first proper use today, made very short work of the big old dead pine tree down the end of the paddock. However, lack of practice means my arms and hands are now aching badly. :(

    Split and stacked up some ready for use in the fire, rest parked in shed to dry out further.

    Much wine drunk.

    By the time I had mowed the lawns, had strimmer action followed by hedge trimmer, ran out of time for the chainsaw :(

    Well at least 2 of you actually rode a bicycle today. As indeed did I. I think I'm going to have pink arms and knees in the morning. All part of the great process.

    Survived the CX ride just about, slightly burnt. The cream scone at cafe stop and bacon butty made t all worthwhile. Met new member of the family and been slobbered to death. Seems to be settling in time will tell, lads fussing him big style.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
