    Hoppy over indulged during the weekend (again) and the cycle in to work just about killed him. He's fast asleep in the corner of the office and is unknowingly suffering from gout.

    :D
    I'm not sure it's possible to unknowingly suffer from gout! :shock:
    The cycle in to work is always what re-animates me. Roads were packed with cyclists on the commute today, despite the chilly north-easterly. The main train line into Waterloo is gefickt.
    A day of busy stuff ahead. I might get an extra-large lunch, seeing as it's cold.

    Think you've covered all bases there, 1st webex over watched some rather grim footage from the Macau F3 GP, lots online people have uploaded but its pretty gut wrenching to watch. Speed trap data put her doing just over 170 backwards at the braking point.

    Busy, WFH this week. I am therefore far enough away from the Idiots in Business that ignoring them is a little easier. Plus it means I can sneak out occasionally to (figuratively) smell the roses, or in my case, just stare at the view...

    Now you mention it I'm due to chase the dealer this week and see if they have an ETA. They need it in their quarterly sales numbers so should be suitably incentivised to make it happen next month and I've told them if I can't have before Xmas then I'll have it registered in January. As far as Mrs. 666 is concerned, I'm just getting the 'sport' version with the optional exhaust which is why it sounds like a an approaching thunderstorm. Luckily she knows sweet FA about cars :)

    In other news, the pedal in was chilly and I'm now making up the calorie deficit.

    Nearest is about 4 km back up the road. A few hills, a bike path most of the way but zero lighting for night returns... and critters everywhere... lol

    It would be amusing if it's closer than TLW's local. He'll be really jealous then :P

    My local is 850m away with another one 900m away :)

    Finally managed to get a chance to slow down and look on here. Walked into a major pile of poo thanks to night shift Muppets. Weather plonkers at BBC got it wrong again so I'm swimming home instead of riding. Beer tonight and family harmony will be at its best seeing as eldest is away with work all wk.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I'll have to get a ruler out tonight see how far the pub is from mine, doubt I'll win, house is on a very steep hill so going to the pub is decidedly more easy than the return.

    I guess it was a major house purchase consideration.

    Yep, saw some lovely isolated houses all excluded as you couldn’t walk to the pub. Unless you are in WI, how do you get interpreted into the community?

    Piña's pretty much hit the nail on the head there.
    Just used Google maps to calculate the distance of the nearest pub from mine. Apparently it's 2364" away, I've measured it in inches so it makes it sound further away. Leaving the house by the back door would add about 10% to the distance travelled.

    Your house must be huge.
  • Afternoon all.
    My local is less than 100 yards away and yes it was a major purchasing factor. It has since been taken over by an obnoxious twunt so I don’t bother going there now. We all have our crosses to bear.
    Monday at work done which was tedious beyond belief. Another day like that tomorrow and I might have get out the office Webley.
    Cheers.

    about a mile but its awful. even the mfs wouldn't go there and they spent a while when their local was the local petrol station because - as they said - "the beer is cheap, the plastic chairs are comfy and we can get yesterday's sandwiches cheap".
