  • WFH all this week. Will be WFH all next year, with occasional visits to the factory /office sites interstate. At their expense. 8)

    Bought some used XTR bits for a shiny bike build I'll probably hardly ride. Bought a back exercise machine on recommendation of physio/masseur, hope it's worth it. Bought a lens adaptor for camera.

    Did some work, but just enough to give the impression of "busy".

    What is this work thing, sod that till Sunday. Something to be said about working a shift pattern. Went out for a slobbering at triuk which is one of a certain Mr Ashley,s recent ventures. Some serious stuff in it and really well set up but prices a bit rich for me. Cinema later after taking youngest to football training.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Afternoon folks,
    Also WFW for me. Pleasant wobble in this morning, bit fresh when I left so I stopped at my mate's for a coffee. After a bit of a chat and with a good shot of caffeine it seemed a bit warmer and it was certainly brighter. Busy in here as is the norm. Pub later but have to wobble over to the old dear's and pick the car up first as it's just had a scratch repaired. Thankfully the guy that did the damage 'fessed up and has paid for it already.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Meh. Sleet and all sorts here.

    Weegie land was particularly filthy.
    Tricky went blue in the pool. Then there was a few calls made to us and a recommendation to take her to the Doctor's. Fark me. They know she gets cold easy (no 'padding', despite eating like a horse), so why didn't they pull her out earlier?
    Now looking for a wet suit.

    Laters.

    I doubt he could recollect any of it, so it's immaterial.

    True that, he was convinced that he was Nibs winning milan San remo on a Starley safety bicycle. Its amazing what cider does to your synapses.

    Nope remember it all, mainly due to the fact that I haven’t still got my front wheel straightened

    Send pictures of TDV, I might be willing to risk the car park.
    Pub was good, beer was good. I may have had a few.

    I have absolutely no idea what you are trying to say.
