Sunday. In search of the ineffable and see if we can't eff it after all

Morning.

Another Sunday greets us with a realm of possiblities. However, I'll just give the central heating a poke and then go for a walk before lunch.


The older I get, the better I was.

    Moaning All. Currently on shift and walked into a crapshoot left by the night shift Muppets. Luckily now sorted and chilling out recovering from cold bimble into work and subsequent shitestorm. Mr night shifts in for my left boot if he does this again. Looks a bit grey and dismal here in the Midlands at the moment.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    This place is something like that abandoned town in The Outlaw Josey Wales.

    It's dull. Expecting monsoon. Then swimming with toots later. Worlds after that.
    Hopefully better than the women's RR which turned into a 3 person TT.

    Laters.

    Do you mean this forum or Stranraer? Or both?

    Back to normal after the latest Northern trip. Plan to test drive a car on the way home was kyboshed as when I called up the useless gits didn't have it in stock and it was still with the manufacturer, despite it being advertised as available :roll: Now trying slightly different tactics as I CBA to go all the way back to Yorkshire just for that. Otherwise just a boring but sunny Sunday.

    Next week will be busy as I see the idiots have been productive at work while I was out on Friday.

    Reasonably productive Saturday has eased Sunday’s jobs, car cleaned and now waiting for a haircut.

    Then a long walk to a nice pub

    Morning folks, traditional slow start has been had. Got a few jobs to do before hopefully taking hopalong to a pub later, unfortunately I will have to drive. Sunny but a bit fresh out, quite nice really. If I feel brave enough I might venture into Aldi to get some Parmesan and a couple of merino vase layers.

    'ning

    uneventful flight back, drank much bubbly, felt a bit fragile first thing

    shiny bike rebuilt, tempted to have a ride but put off by the significantly sub-scorchio temperatures, instead had a stroll to get an inyt and sat in a cafe to read the comics while having a toasted cheesy snack and a triple-shot coffee

    also saw a local tabbycat, this is always a good sign

    mrs s says a holiday is needed, word
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Each to their own, I prefer a gloss finish :)

    Urgh

    Up early, rode to hill climb, nobody there. Turned up 2 hours early.

    Broke a spoke en route, had to carefully potter around for 90 minutes to keep warm.
    Did rubbish in the race too.

    Doing not a lot this afternoon. Maybe replacing said spoke and truing a wheel. The wheels came with a load of spare spokes - maybe that was a bad sign?
  • Evening all. Got up early, all chores done early. Then had pie and dark n’ stormys which is advised by the NHS to hold off lurg. Didn’t work and in full lurg mode. Still made chicken with dauphinois potatoes and that makes me a hero in Mrs BBGeeks eyes. So overall a winner kind of day.
    Tomorrow is another day.
