    Morning Folks, chasing the early riser as usual. Work and occ health check at some stage today then the lawn mower is awaiting upon my return home. Need to spend some time servicing bikes as several rides coming up. Family all doing their stuff without any assistance for a change.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, cold a bit damp but bright, do the clocks go back yet or something?

    Shall be mainly yelling in Spanish for the next few days, previous job at a Spanish bank finally of some use! Will try an hook onto euro sport later for Giro De Etna see if Froome falls off again.

    Morning folks,
    Bit chillier this morning and a little moist out there, but it helped clear the cobwebs of the traditional Thursday hangover. Normal service has resumed as SG says. Today is my Friday as I'm off tomorrow for a meandering cycling pub crawl along the rivers Wey and Thames. Hopefully it won't be too busy today as I'd like to go for lunch with the Mrs later. Unfortunately I suspect that won't happen but I'll just have to keep fending off customers and hope for the best.
    onwards and upwards to mediocrity.

    Morning
    Sunny intervals here. Feeling a bit sore after yesterday’s efforts, the beer and wine helped. However at some point in the night wifey did the “ Did you hear that” she reckoned that she’d heard what sounded like someone levering the boards of the window of the empty property next door. So she’s then out of bed watching and she sees a bloke with what looks like a crowbar in his hand. By this time I’ve gone back to sleep only to be woken when she rings the rossers. Who surprisingly sent out two squad cars and came back several times to check. Must of been a quiet night crime wise in North Yorkshire.
    So the plan to chop back the tree overhanging our garden is now on hold as it’s a crime scene. :D
    Might be a walk later if I can summon up the energy.

    Couldn't muster the energy to get up at 5.45 for a ride so got up at 6.30 for a short run instead.

    Today will comprise of emails, putting wrong things right and tea.

    In sunny Yorkshire today, although meeting finished a lot earlier than expected so might have to go back to the office which has messed up my bike ride logistics planning.

    Argon 18 internal cabling is officially shyyt

    If has defeated someone who has built bicycles for years, used to work in a shop as the mechanic and is pretty handy then home tinkering of bicycles, if internal cabling persists, is doomed.

    What a crock of dog shyyt.

    I thought all the crime was in Redcar, maybe they're going on tour?

    Busy day today including a meeting in the City and much delegation to minions, but it's nearly the weekend. The council has woken up after much prodding and is now sending the housing enforcement team in to look at the chav infestation next door. In the meantime I've found that the owner is borrowing from a lender that doesn't lend against HMO properties with more than 5 tenants and they've got at least 6 in there - time for a call to the bank...

    I'm headed off soon to censored around with car configurators :)

    MF came round, took one look at it and kicked its backside. Cables in.

    Took him 5 minutes. If you want to know what he did, Post below.

    He’s a genius and I’m going to let TDV do things to Little MF that you lot have only seen in films on the internet.

    I tell you, the man is a genius.

    MF said that he was just going to let her kick him in the nads but now you have given her ideas.

    He doesn’t think this is going to end well.

    "urethral sounding". Quite why someone would want to do that, I have no idea.
