    Morning
    Not looking great out. However I get to drive to the physio today rather than having to go on the bus. I can now lift my repaired arm above my head all on its own, so things are looking good. Later will be a trip to the library and the turbo.

    Fook me it's grim out there. Had to get my winter coat out for the walk to the car. Decided it was not a good day for riding in, cold, wet and windy so I was very glad to have the car option. Customers started phoning far too early this morning, haven't they got better things to do?
    Need to go to the wilds of Raynes Park at some point this week to pick up my first purchase for the bamboo bike build, a pair of saw horses off the Bay.
    Good news Webboo.

    It's cold, very very cold.

    Rode a decent 50 miler on Sunday so legs are feeling today. Might be tempted to get back in to running again as I'm feeling sluggish at the moment.

    Cold very cold, dull Monday in the office no balcony action of risk of in the near future. drove in as I have some parcels to collect, or rather was meant to said deliveries haven't arrived which is a bit annoying. Was also meant to rain but ive seen no hint of that as yet just cold an windy.

    Did I mention its cold? Its May tomorrow is and its colder than I can recall for a number of years

    Only 390TSS planned rather than the 750 or so that I've done the last 4. Positive holiday :)

    Good job I drove in, just found a case of wine with my name on it in with some customers returns. Didn't notice it on Friday as I was preoccupied by my bike frame that was in there.

    Morning

    Decided at 6am this morning I fancied a riding the big bike around cwmcarn. Currently on the train home, which is late because the driver hadn't finished his pie.

    Chilly wind, but otherwise hot and sunny.

    Nice surprise on any day I reckon.

    Met the solicitors about next steps dealing with next doors chav infestation. Then an afternoon of work meh. Glad I wasn't riding today.

    Thought I posted, obviously didn't. Wet and headwindy ride in, spot of faffing, spot of work, hopefully over the line with this new job after 3rd interview. Confirmed bike space available. Cold headwind on the way home as well, which was disappointing. Sunny tomorrow though and hopefully will be seeing if I can get made redundant on the cheap. What larks!

    Late check in. Went to the docs for me hay fever medicine, we had a wee chuckle as we watched everyone shuffle by in parkas. Dr has huge hay fever probs, so nice to have a chat about something normal. In the meantime she took my blood pressure and as I had consumed some alcohol this weekend it wasn’t as scary as it could have been.
    Might go along for some Morris dancing tomorrow as it is Beltane. No virgins will be sacrificed as they are in very short supply around here. I blame Brexit, we could always get them before.

    Bizarrely enough, I came home today to find that TDV had given my chest freezer away.

    I only noticed because I went in the garage to find n1 bike lying on the floor in the space where it used to be,

    What Stevo really wants to know is, does the job come with minions and if so, how many?

    There are minions, although I will have to hire them first. I believe 3 of them will be required for now in the UK.

    I believe so, but not had a formal offer yet. It seems that we may be some distance apart in terms of pay and rations.
