    Its raining here :(

    Come down to a house or devastation as last nights few friends turned into a party - all good bar the empty wine and beer fridges

    Today is a chilled day with sore legs

    I'm up North so it's not very warm. But it is very light at either end of the day. Solving both by going on holiday somewhere sungoddish next weekend.

    For now, it's visiting relatives, the old dear and more sorting out house type stuff. May go for a run along the beach later on.

    Morning folks, traditional slow start is being enjoyed. No sign of the kids so that’s an ideal start to Father’s Day as far as I’m concerned. Went out for a few beers with the trouble and some friends last night. Off to my folks soon as it’s the old man’s Birthday today.
    Have a good day all.

    after a deceptively dry start, got rained on for bloody hours, fortunately had a gilet, just had a reviving coffee, juice, eggs, toast, tomatoes, sausage, prosciutto, and a medley of 'shrooms

    Morning All, kids and grandkids deposited cards along with chocolate, alcohol and magazines etc for later. May get chance of a ride out later, being taken for a quiet tonight as work tomorrow. Won't be running for a bit as suffering with heel pain, hopefully riding my bike will be ok. To all Dads embrace the day and remember your own dad's wherever they are. I miss mine.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Almost feels like today didn't really happen. Woken up by some heavy rain which we really didn't need. Spent a good, oooooh, 16 minutes out sorting out some blocked water drains mid morning, but apart from that it's been almost entirely a day of SFA.

    Me cut grass me and then did some floor tile grouting which i'll finish off tonight. Only balustrade and oak Mop stick hand rail to fit...

    ...and a bit of skirting
    ...and paint the skirting
    ...and choose curtain rails
    ...and plumb the kitchen sink in
    ...and touch up here and there
    ...and put shelves in the airing cupboard
    ...and choose lamp shades
    ...and fit conservatory doors
    ...and fit latches and hinges
    ...and fit shower screen with cr4p instruction leaflet
    ...and get sparky to finish off or should I say "...and get a sparky to finish off"

    Then do all that packing/moving malarkey :roll: In 13 days. Eeek.

    Sounds never ending Pinno. You'd be bored otherwise?

    Packing/moving is hell. Especially if you live with a hoarder. Though a good few cubic metres of boxes did "disappear" during our last move, and have not been missed.

    Had a Sunday morning (yes people, the NHS is Good) session with my consultant professor who happens also to be a cyclist. Good rapport, good discussions, he finds my case interesting as it's complicated.

    More eye injections for me. 'kin permanent season ticket on that now.

    On the question of can high intensity turbo sessions raise blood pressure too much that a tiny vein in eye can go pop (my problem), jury out, who knows, no evidence either way. Upshot, don't push it too hard, longer duration rather than high intensity. Audax here I come eh. Anybody got Steve Abraham's phone number...? :shock:

    Hmm fair bit of skirting activity there, you sure none of it was of the up variety?

    He needs to stop being a tight censored and pay someone else other than the sparky to help him.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Leopards and spots, Oxo. Life's too short to do manual labour but sadly he's tighter than a gnats chuff :)

    I do and that's a good idea.

    Sparky needs to finish the work he's done. I don't pay sparky to do minion jobs. I have 2-3 minions* to do manual labour and it's hard to get minions who can actually do stuff - they tend to have jobs.

    *According to what I know they can do.

    I'll refer you to the answer above.

    Now listen Mr sums man*, had I paid someone to do the work at PPP, I would have forked out IRO £35k+ and add on all their building materials mark up and VAT.

    *To be called a tight 4rse by you is a compliment and an irony all at the same time.
