    Late start as it’s the youngest first day at secondary, was hoping for a lie in but last nights training run with the running club has left me restless

    Morning Slackers. More riding with youngest assuming he doesn't go off on a strop. His last day off school today, can't wait for tomorrow. Need to find mobile phone repairer, dropped and wrecked it last night. So called gorilla glass and case failed miserably.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Fuggin work. At least it's a late start on 1st day. Main task is to ascertain bike parking and shower situation. All else is secondary.

    Morning

    Patchy drizzle at the moment but not enough to get wet, just to make all the corners slippery.
    I've now met a third person who parks in the same place as me and cycles in to work, it's getting a bit crowded now for my liking.
    Expecting another day chasing my tail. Might book a month off work.

    Sounds like sensible priorities.

    Good luck Hopkinb, you've probably got a few days of BS to suffer first as well.

    that's ma boy. enjoy the new place - keep us informed. Any problems shout and I'll send the MFs down to have a word.

    Bambino started new school today. lots of nerves but within 30 seconds had been swept up in playground melee so MF hopes that all good.

    now just kicking heels in the sun and drinking coffee - all a bit quiet.

    Morning folks,
    At work and busy, mind is elsewhere and body wants to join it. managed to ride in but Bushy Park was shut for the cull so I have a month of the road around the outside. Deep joy.
    Today's main objective is not to kill anyone to death, I think killing them a little bit is ok though.

    Morning, much business as the schools have returned many more humans are now in the building, plus I get to go minion shopping.

    Pedalled in on the plastic bike with the Wahoo for the first time today, assuming any PB's are down to the "aero mount".

    Much coffee inhaled and little work to being done, thus far today is going swimmingly.

    Morning crowd, coffee fuelled day, with head banging the keyboard as I manage academics. May go out and snatch some lunch

    Similar for me - Stropteen starts her new 6th form today although she's pretty self-propelled these days so left her to it this morning once we knew she had woken up.

    Good ride in but need to ditch the bike at work to go collect the car which has been fixed a couple of days earlier than the garage originally estimated. And then collect Stressbag who needs to give back the hire car early then needs a lift home from me. Will ride home tomorrow instead.

    The baskets sent me the rwong throttle cable.
    Toots run in the van for a couple pf days.

    It's sunny. Much nicer day than yesterday. That's because I planned and went out for a bike ride. Typical.

    Laters.

    Oops.

    Hopefully you won't have to wait until the Japanese expats go home before you leave the office?

    Nah. Even if I do, they start a flexible working policy on 10th Sept. Every minute outside your contracted hours you get back, up to 35 hours. Not bad.

    I met the emea/cis CFO today. Big Chelsea fan apparently. On his second tour of duty in London.
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 7,129
    In terms of my objectives, I have a bike rack, but have not yet been inducted into the gym for showers etc. So train [email protected] it again tomorrow. :(
  • Never mind all that bollox, how about the important bits?

    Don’t think I’m going to bother going to work tomorrow, other priorities. Besides I need to let the other slackers catch up a bit as the figures were looking slightly comical.

    Hoes and blow as before, I'm only a few hundred yards down the road. No norkage. None. Not a sniff.

    I wondered who the foreign touristy types were sitting near us at Stamford Bridge last season :)

    As Chelsea fans say to Manure fans when The Blues are playing away at Old Trafford, "We'll race you back to London" :)

    I haven't bothered to read the whole thread (or any of it tbh) but a word in the title caught my eye.

    Colider. I went to a sausage and cider festival (ahem...) and there was a cola flavoured cider. Tasted like Panda pops cola, for those of a certain generation. I reckon that after about 8 pints of it you would fall off a cliff, at great pace.

    aha, i was hinting at let's talk cocktails with the ambiguity of did he mean collider or colada, but it didn't work

    cola flavoured cider, that sounds very wrong

    it sounds like an utterly massive headache waiting to happen.

    I only had one pint, because I was driving. Thankfully. I reckon my teeth would have dissolved in the sugar content and caused more grief than any hangover.
