    WFH as no kids, so work can be done. Dog is dead after running around chasing me on the mtb

    Later is a run to a pub far(ish) away

    Morning
    Slightly cooler today, however I suspect that today’s ride will yet again will be a very sweaty fly blown affair.

    Boss' bike was downstairs when I got in but boss is nowhere to be seen.

    Won't have trouble staying out of the sun as I'm in the office, and there's thick black cloud in the sky anyway. Someone saw me cleaning my bike at the weekend and some rain.

    And the tubeless puncture fairy's back from her few weeks of leave.

    I dunno, anyway.

    Melty already out sticky tar an what not the elderly out in force obeying the met office warning while cursing at the heat. Drove in today as I elected to take the hound in she can enjoy the aircon at least though currently shes lying in the sun staring at the Geese.
    Later will be very little going on may do a bbq try not to set fire to the lawn/hay pile of a garden, Pimms?

    On a train into town after doing a spot of wfh. An afternoon of relative tedium awaits, followed by an evening of tedium as the auditors are taking us out for dinner. On the plus side it's free and its a steak restaurant.

    Cloudy and damp where we were this morning, so we've come to a honey farm. I like honey...

    That hardly surprised me Winnie. Just don't get stuck at Kanga's house.

    Cloudy but humid up here in the land of the inbetweeners. I suppose it is officially Jockland. Cannot see Boro from here.

    Swimming, a spot of shopping :roll: , coffee and cake is on the cards today.

    Laters.

    I don't really have much of a sweet tooth, but I make an exception for honey. I now have 2 different jars, and a jar of marmalade spiked with honey.

    Where's that Phil98473487 bloke? Doesn't he want tyres?

    I could always sell them to Bungle.

    Cider in pub far from home (ok 3 miles) is Good, just a shame they aren’t serving food

    They were doing this at the honey farm. £2.50. £3 with a toasted tea cake.

    Cream tea with honeycomb rather than jam for a fiver.

    Just went for dinner, fcuk me, the waitresses were utterly delicious in gauzy black dress/camel toe leggings. I may have overtipped.

    Don’t worry I’m back and won’t be partaking in any of that nonsense. About to have a cold beer and get stuff ready for tomorrow. First day at work after nearly 3 weeks will be tough, the ride in will be slow.
    Piña if you sell tyres to Bungle you will have to offer a fitting service. Hopper, any pictures of said waitresses and their norks?

    Unfortunately not. Mrs H3 has the right hump with me for the tip. Says the honey-coloured blonde beauties dress like that to make the sad old men go googly-eyed and give them money.

    I didn't have much to say to that.
