my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Roads look dry, unlike me last night

    Today is ride to a 10k in the old place, agreed to pace a mates wife to do a sub 50 min, so shouldn’t be too painful. Then catching up with a few pals at the old local, the ride home will be slower

    Morning All. Slow start today youngest playing football again so doing the dad's taxi thing and supporting him. Family over later for lunch so will be busy cooking for the whole tribe. Maybe get out on bike later if not I'm off for a few days anyway so more chances in the week.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed. Later will involve putting the Mini back together and a bit more garage clearing. Then a visit to the ‘rents for a bit of cake.

    Dog walked, coffee supped and garage junk loaded in the car ready for the local tip run. More car research being undertaken while peace reigns in the house (i.e. while me and Muttley have the house to ourselves).

    Must remember to remain calm and not argue today as Stropteens GCSE exams kick off tomorrow.

    Same here, easier said than done as I suspect even the most innocent comment could be taken out of context and cause meltdown.
    Good luck to you all.

    Keeping out of the way is probably the best tactic - man cave/study/out doing jobs etc. We just need to keep it up for 5 and a half weeks :roll:

    Good luck...

    Man cave.

    Its a garage/shed in suburbia. Its not a cave.

    Why not pop it in the big cauldron of stupid sayings like "pain cave" and other such pointless phrases clubbies and people who read GQ use.

    Man cave. FFS.

    I worded it to cover Wales where quite a few people live in caves. Or at least they look like they do.

    Afternoon.
    Not a lot happening here in laws visiting, just been to the pub for lunch. Might watch the Cycling later.

    Not much occurring. Picked up sprogs from grandmother. Lovely walk with the dog, stunning rhododendrons in full bloom in Cannizaro park near me. Done a few puzzles. Such fun.

    Its Wales, God's own country, not the North East or Luton where Richard lives.

    I understand they dream of cave dwelling in the North East or Luton, where Richard lives. Anywhere they don't have to bath in their own urine in seen as posh and soft.

    That as much as maybe, lush, see, but a bit of last minute (ie the mornng of each exam) motivation never goes adrift.

    Spend tonight drinking cheap cider and getting a slide show together showing abject poverty, slums, drug addicts on the streets, those really awful shitttty housing estates in Russia, pictures of people with no teeth and massive drug tracks all over their bodies, pictures of Luton where Richard lives - and sit Stropteen down each morning and show it to her explaining that if she doesn't do well at her exams this is where she will end up.

    Wait until its her least favourite subject because you know it will be the one she has put the least amount of effort into and therefore will need the most amount of motivation - and pop in some pictures of homeless old people living in rubbish tips just to remind her what will happen to her parents should she not get straight A* for all exams.

    MF says that will be a sure fire winner winner chicken dinner tactic for motivating her.

    I think it's that 'me, myself and I' thing going on.

    Gorgeous day so chucked the bike in the new old banger, drove it down to MOT station. Wobbled the long way back to PPP and did some silly jobs (whilst in lycra) and brought the Old new banger back (still in lycra).
    Took toots swimming after a spot of lunch and then preened the Old new banger (but not in lycra). It's sitting sparkling on the drive but better still, unlike the lease hire/HP 17 plates around here: I own it. Ha ha. I even own the rust.

    Must get on with dinner and then my fix of Giro later.

    Trust me Harry, MF is the only fellow around here who speaks any sense.

    The rest is just noise and cloddlewobble.

    MF: GOOD.

    I say good luck to all them kids doing exams and chin up to parents putting up with it. It’ll soon be over. Then it’s the stress of A-Levels. You could fire them into outer space like V68, but his only got as far as Australia.
    Mrs BBGeek and me had a nice ride on the bikes. First time for a year for Mrs BBGeek after her leg injury. She went off-road and everything. And left me standing, the evil person she is. I am rubbish.

    Logic would dictate that as I cycled to PPP from the MOT station, then the only* remaining form of transportation left behind at the MOT place was...
