WFH today as the wife is away tonight

Meant a slow start and a decent walk with the hound. Later is intervals and then slow cooked ham (wife is putting it in the bottom oven this morning)

    Bike ok?

    It was slippy out last night, had to look out of the passenger window a few times to look forward

    Yeah I think so, I was on my old MTB so it's used to crashing. Luckily it didn't slide off the edge of the deck into the river if you know where I'm talking about :roll:

    Morning All. Glad your ok and didn't go for a swim thistle and the bikes uninjured. Sadly I've got decorating the next few days then hopefully the OH will get off my case for a bit.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Where tf is everybody?
    Now I know TLW is at home, I may annoy him.

    It's dull. Nuff said. Will be doing some remedial work post pointing on roof edge. Then sauna.

    Laters.

    I'm hungry, as per.

    A visit from the president of GJC today. So some blurb, followed by some canapes and some booze. I expect I'll skip the booze.

    Busy and was hungry until just now. Best to eat before I post as I don't like posting in a bad mood. Lots on but luckily I'm not getting blamed for anything - so far.

    Decent ride in though despite a spot of bad luck with traffic lights.

    Afternoon all

    Not much to report here but i'll give it a go anyway!
    Pretty dull, looks like it is about to rain as i need to head out of the office for a bit too!
    Loud typing guy is still alive (7 working days in now so i think he may survive!)
    That's basically it - quiet in here today.

    Afternoon, fun morning at the doctors after getting my blood test results, apparently I'm very run down and low on lots of things. Not signed off work just told to take it easy take pills and not get stressed. Yeah that wont work!

    Wobbled back from them via gregs found out the bottle holder takes a coffee nicely an no spills, so baguette in one coffee the other so thats one to remember. Much moaning to South Americans today, thankfully my angry Spanish finally has a use.
    Home later remove the remnants from some fireworks off the cars an play with the leaf blower.

    The one on the seat tube or the one on the down tube?
    I've managed tea on the down tube, but in one of those sealed travel mugs so no spillage issues.

    Today just improved, signed for a package from rapha that I didn’t order and feels a lot like the coat I tried on last week :)

    Afternoon. Night mtb ride tonight which will be good, packed a head torch for the hound also. Think I'll need to get some work done this evening post ride though. Shame about the crash Thistle, I nearly went under a pickup truck on Sunday because the farmer pulled out of his farmyard onto the public road without looking. He wouldn't have locked up and slid so far if he hadn't coated the entire road in censored with his stupid fuvking machines though...

    Indeed the seat tube, down tube was a touch risky though to be fair the route is pretty smooth which helps. A travel mug would make more sense to be honest or even the thermal elite one I have, but I didnt think ahead.

    Debating doing something a bit silly I'm breaking down my old endruo bike which has a SRAM X7 and a dirty great 11-42T cassette, do I chuck it on the commuter bike for semi trouble free riding?

    For what exactly? Pedalling at 160 rpm along the road travelling at 2mph?

    Exactly! An ill try doing it without bobbing up an down! Theres no huge reason to do it bar my current rear cassettes about had it, an the one off the other bike will be doing naff all so it would be an easy change over.

    A race you could win, probably

    I'm trying hard to think where I might have a slender advantage...
