    Trying to catch up for yesterday and prepare for holidays on Thursday night means no fun and working from home since silly o’clock

    Need a holiday

    Morning. Chilling out and no early ride this morning as rain and last night's alcohol stopped play. Taking lads wake boarding later amongst other things.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Morning

    Yesterday's bike ride didn't happen, so dropped the car off early this morning and went straight to work in the cool mist which was a nice change.

    Early dart to fetch car later, followed by some riding around in circles. New helmet pads arriving today hopefully.

    Morning folks,
    Feeling rather tired and weary, really should try to get more sleep when I'm not at my desk. Apparently desk sleep isn't good quality sleep. Hopefully not too much going on today, but I doubt that it will pan out that way.

    According to your Automatic reply, you've just had a holiday :roll:

    What's the 'w' SG? We can guess...

    Misty, murky today. Also known in Scotland as 'smurry'. Funny lot.

    Me doing all sorts of silly things me. Shorty is 6 today. Say 'Happy birthday Shorty'.
    I assembled a Lilac Apollo with butterfly detailing bike for her late last night. As mentioned to another bracket brother, it actually has round wheels and brakes. Apollo have come along way/ I hope it wears in 'cos I had to use some de-blocker on the chain and some oil, re-adjust the back wheel position and pedal it furiously (upside down; it doesn't fit me).

    Laters.

    En route to the new forest for the night with Mrs H3. Mini left in the care of the nanny. "Bike ride" with Mrs H3 planned, being 20 miles of flat ex-railway track, so I've stuck my old wheels with the 38mm rubber on the bike. Maybe a pub for lunch. Dinner at the hotel later.

    Where you off to?

    Just been booted out of the building for a random fire drill just as I was starting my second coffee and getting stuck into something ingeresting. CBA to go to the marshalling point 250m away so am sitting in the sunshine near the entrance passing the time.

    Happy birthday Shorty.
    The w is the thing SG is trying to keep to a minimum in his wfh. I'm trying to keep it to a minimum whilst sfw.
    Should go in search of some sustenance at some point.
    I need a holiday.

    Afternoon. Tried the bivy bag out in the rain last night, went to sleep OK but it was too hot (and too little wind) so I had the bug net open. I was then helpfully woken up at 2am by a frog jumping on my face. Scared the censored out of me

    There was a big scream last night around the time Stropteen was going to bed. Turns out she put her head on the pillow and came face to face with a very large (by UK standards) spider. I managed to get it onto a bit of paper and lobbed out of the bedroom window. Then spent several minutes explaining that it was (a) harmless and (b) unlikely to make its way up from the patio to the first floor window that it was lobbed out of. Stressbag was about as useful as a chocolate teapot in all of this. I should take them on holiday to Africa or Australia :)

    I came home yesterday to find a glass with a lid containing 2 big spiders in the kitchen on Monday, presumably the GF had left them there for me to deal with. Unfortunately for her I'm challenging gender stereotypes and making her do it.

    This is a good thing, I try to do the same with out daughter. She doesn't like spiders but is now confident enough to catch them in a glass and get them out of a window, although face to face on a pillow would have made her jump and possibly scream I should think.

    I've done similar with the Mrs,s, she's terrified of spiders and hates unlocking the toilet when her or the kids have blocked it.

    Are the two things linked?

    went for some tests earlier due to some visual oddness, ever since i've had pupils like grace slick on acid, also blurry but without the white rabbit

    there are no scary insects in uk, even in the steamier places it's more about the foul infections they can carry, but the big ones do make a mess, taste like cack too

    aside from lyme disease the uk is pretty benign, at least here there's no general need to soak in deet here

    TLW, Probably yes both would be scary knowing my kids. I just hate autospell, when it replaces what your word with what it thinks is correct.

    Having a negroni, some fancy mini scotch egg things and some elongated pork scratchings. Mrs H3 has gone to straighten her hair, leaving me to look at the other clientele. Mainly old and rich so it seems. Dinner later looks good. Let's hope it lives up to its promise.
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 7,241
    Well the shite hit the fan tonight almost literally, wife met Mr Bat. Guess who hates things flying around her, now to add to the picture. We are stopping in a converted chapel with high ceilings and not many opening windows. Eventually got it out after leaving big chapel doors open lights off and wife cowering under the covers. Left her under them for an extra hour just to make sure. Me and the boys have now well and truly been bollocked, oh well. Wonder if he will come back tomorrow if we leave the door open for him.

    You don't muck around, do you Hoppy?

    I get bats following the insects who are attracted by my front bike lights. I love it.

    So do I, just my Mrs,s doesn't. Came close to be threatened with divorce and worse if we didn't treat her seriously. It's made a fantastic memory for the lads to recite in years to come.

    The trick is to only have one.

    Hoppy I can't see you only having one if it's that nice.
