    Morning, mild and misty this morning, if it stays fine I will be clearing some rubbish out of the shed to make room for the garden furniture

    Morning slackers,

    Taking the car in to the local stealer as it's had a recall notice which needs sorting before I sell it. Hopefully I can avoid any bills before it goes.

    Then into work to deal with idiots.

    So it wasn’t you I saw Cycling towards the cemetery this morning?
  • tlw1tlw1 Posts: 18,921
    Hybrid commute and passed a nice looking lady so good start to the day

    Work is not fun today, but later out at jazz night that serves decent beer

    No, deepest darkest Cheshire. I think it was just cloudy, it's quite bright outside now.

    Foot off the gas a bit now, take a few breaths, plan for the minion.

    Now, what to have for dinner tomorrow night, as Mrs H3 gallivants with her chums in the Balearics? A big old chunk of steak I feel, with some nice mushrooms sautéed in the steak pan while the meat rests, flamed with a touch of cognac, then finished with a small slosh of cream and a handful of tarragon. Oh yes, that will do nicely.

    It's still bl00dy hot down here. No knee or arm warmers required this morning.

    Nice morning, still, hazy and bright. I didn't realise it was quite so warm until I went to pick up some firewood last night, I rushed home and went out on the cx bike, well worth it. Today will be spent with spreadsheets until mtb with a friend this evening. Weather is going to turn, should be fun

    Morning folks,
    Bit of a dull start to the day, had to drop female child off in Worcester Park then the invalid to Twickenham. This meant I spent the best part of 2 hours sitting in traffic. No wonder I prefer to ride my bike.
    Still waiting for them to sort out if I'm moving or not, getting a bit fed up with it to be honest. I said I want to go but I don't want to lose the equivalent of my bonuses, not difficult you'd think. The problem being I earn more than the others and tend to get bigger bonuses. Not big bonuses, but a nice little extra that can pay for bike stuff. This place could give lessons in how to disincentivise staff.
    Supposed to be CX training again tonight but have to pick the Mrs up again and do a bit of running around, not sure if I'll manage it at this rate.

    Morning, misty one up my way in the woods the more mist by the puddle at work, no need for arm warmers etc today nice gentle spin in.
    Work ahoy talking to yanks later which is going to be tiresome. Coffee, fish an potatoes on the menu today.

    No ta. I have a set of rollers. I meant give the WT a once over and pump up the tyres.
    Bloody windy but bloody good wobble. Got blown home at silly speed with little effort. Which is just as well as I din't have much effort to put in by that time.

    Did you ride barefoot TLW nutter?

    Heh. Blown.

    The internet would be a sad place if someone didn't chuckle at that.
  • haydenmhaydenm Posts: 2,903
    I'm also hoping that it rains heavy enough to clean all the mud off my car before I get shouted at at work, no one has mentioned it so far which is a good sign...
  • Stevo_666Stevo_666 Posts: 44,054
    Hehe, its nearly cider o'clock. Followed by curry o'clock :) And work from home tomorrow.
