extremely soggy out, invasion of welsh weather from the look of it

meh
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Morning. Agree with title SG and definitely very welsh weather around me at the minute. No bike today as packing up for Manc land and youngest is playing football later. Suspect I may get drowned watching him. OH,s night out with ladies ended quietly all be it she got in car slightly wobbly with large German stein beer glass for me. Had a bottle of beer once taxi duties over and now nursing a head ache, discovered it was very strong beer nearly 8%.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Seems like rain is stopping play in lot of places including here. Good day for a CX race though, as Veronese and Hoppy will be finding out shortly.

    Not got masses planned for today as lots of jobs were done yesterday and I even managed to squeeze in a run with Stropteen. Cheered me up that I was still faster than her :) Now time for coffee while Muttley snoozes and the girls are out of the house for a bit.

    Teeming it down. Planned long ride scuppered. Now seconded on to roast pig duty (which I have to say I do rather well) for a trad winter Sunday lunch with assorted family.

    You're taking belongings to Manc land Oxo?!

    Very squishy underfoot today but it has stopped raining.
    Yesterday's electrical sort problem conundrum ended at 10pm last night, so i'm a bit worse for wear.

    Last of the big races today. Bit sad really.

    Fiver VN bales out early.

    What big race. Lombardia was yesterday.

    The weather is doing the exact opposite of what the forecast said down to the hour so that's today's riding plans all messed up.

    Have modded a 10p power bank instead. Just charging it up keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn't catch fire, then off to the tip with a load of cardboard boxes for recycling.

    Need to tidy up the porch too. The shoe dryer is arriving today.
  • Afternoon all.

    What a life of cosy domesticity we all lead. Where did it all go wrong?
    Laundry and ironing done - wish I’d thought of a CX race to get out of it :roll:
    Beers and washing up next.

    Pinno, taking bare minimum to manc land and company motor so mine doesn't get nicked or left on bricks. On another note why do we parents turn out to watch our kids play sport when it's not nice outside. Don't know who's wetter the lad playing football or me watching from under an umbrella. Sod it next time I'm only going if it's nice.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Cx race done. Recce lap was dryish, then the heavens opened as we shivered on the start line. The course slowly turned into a layer of slime on top of quite firm ground. Great laugh. I think I was only lapped by the top 10 or so riders. Now, if i could only handle my bike better, dismount and remount properly, and was fitter, I could probably avoid being lapped at all. Maybe.

    V68 did not bail. Stuck it out to the bitter end.

    Good work chaps, bit extreme to get out of peeling some potatoes for lunch, but I admire your work avoidance. In a way.
    Just think, in that time me and TLW could have got through a firkin of ale.

    Woohoo, Piña owes me a fiver!
    Been busy until just now, had to feed the womenfolk when I got in then various other bits the Mrs can’t do at the moment. Only just sat down. Need to start cooking again in a bit.
    That was good fun, but knackering even at my pace. Unfit, still snotty and a lack of skill and grip made it harder work than some made it look. Will do it again I’m sure.

    Just about to leave on what will be a bumpy flight I expect, quite breezy out, and loads of hilly bits underneath means a circus ride for the first 10 minutes.

    Great weekend of perfect weather, pottered about garden, some walks. Dog appears to need a chiropractor, had a lovely run around the paddock in the morning, now seems to have a sore neck. Hmmmm. :?

    Back to work though this week.

  • Meh. Bruce Willis would not have had this problem.
    The washing up went off without a problem, just so you know. I did it in me t- shirt and Mrs BBGeek had to close the blinds so the locals didn’t get too frothy :wink:

    OK, he'll have to sell the Merc and the Porker. That's harsh.
