  • Morning

    Not raining here (yet) but it was part wet, part dry on the ride to work. Had to slow down for corners and stuff.

    Morning, currently overcast and dry. Hopefully summer will return. Sadly returned to work today after chillaxing for a bit. Nothing's changed there, same old same old as the saying goes.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, client visit today which I am not involved in so I am being thrown out of my office. I was down in Gloucester this weekend drinking though so I doubt I would be much use, my mate picked me as his best man, clearly a last resort. Celebrated by getting royally smashed which was nice. Does anyone else find there voice goes croaky after a weekend of drinking?

    Yep - especially if you have been shouting your mouth off*, full of it.

    *As they say in the colloquial. .

    Windy, cloudy and cool today. Not even some obscure T rex tune beyond the initial 'oh, I recognise that', can cheer this day up.

    Laters.

    Morning folks,
    A little overcast here but not raining at least, will probably be riding over to Tooting again ce soir so the sky will probably be leaking then. The great thing about the first few rides on a new route is you keep getting little pots on Strava creating the illusion of being fast. Unfortunately it is just an illusion. Need to ride more as mates are talking about doing the L2B off road in September. Now that I think about it sober I realise I can't as that's the day we are taking the lad up to uni.
    Reasonably busy in the office this morning, it's supposed to be quiet in August. Should probably get on with my work.

    Doesn't have to be a weekend, my voice goes croaky after one night on the lash. But I do talk a lot of bollox.

    Funny how SG anticipated this, hence the thread title. Must have unique access to the wisdom of tabbies.

    Well that was a heavy weekend although my voice does seem to have survived.

    Got home at lunch to find an envelop from HM Courts and wondered what I'd forgotten to pay for. Opened it and it's ****ing jury service.

    Might go for a run after work and hopefully be in bed by 9.

    A guy at work was moaning about HMRC sending him a letter saying he owed £2k in tax for something, one came through the letter box for me today too and I shat myself. Turns out I owe £18 and my tax code is the same as last year...

    Evening wage slaves,

    Good lazy start then a day in the countryside and on the beach, which was huge a deserted. The hound is totally knackered and are just debating whether to eat in or head out for for some pub grub.

    What’s to debate?

    Staying in saves driving as we're in the ar$e end of nowhere - means I can drink more as Strifey doesn't like driving down these single track country lanes.

    We went out in the end :) Used a bit of 'donkey psychology' on Stressbag. Booze in the fridge for later.

    I think VN meant Professional Planning Prevents P1ss Poor Performance but i'm not sure what that has to do with convincing the OH to drive. However, one thing is for sure - if she's sober and you are drunk, there's no chance of action.

    Swings and roundabouts.

    I delegated the cottage booking to Stressbag. Can't get the staff these days...

    Walk to a pub is thankfully a priority for both of us

    I can't imagine you wanting to drive to a pub.
