Morning, Stuck at work today. However it's my midweek already as off for 2 wks come monday evening. Managed to wobble in after last night's Xmas party, eldest will be a bit fragile I suspect :lol:
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Today won’t start with beer for breakfast! Need to collect the car from town and then over to my parents to collect the kids. The rest of the day is undecided

    Had a lie in (or couldn't be bothered getting up).
    Girlfriend has gone out so got some peace and quiet. Could do with fixing some bikes, and riding some bikes.

    I could do with a wobble but first I have to solve the 1 toot bouncing off the wall and 1 toot slightly off colour conundrum...
    Meanwhile Mrs P is 'a little fragile'.

    Bollox.

    It's chilly but sunny.

    Laters.

    Currently trying to help Stropteen with her Chemistry homework and dredging the memory banks from when I studied it. Hopefully will be able to avoid a few jobs later on when Mrs. 666 is back.

    Xmas party in November? Shocked, I am.
    Stevo, just wibble on about covalent bonds. Job done. I loved chemistry at school and would have enjoyed studying it further had I not left to get a job :D. Could have made a fortune making MDMA, but hey ho.
    Day of pottering and stuff so mundane I won’t go into detail. On the plus side, the bar has been open for a couple of hours. Work am tomorrow then a funeral in the pm.
    Have a nice day.

    Good guess BBG, I'm about to exactly that - and ionic bonds. Just reading her online study stuff and its all coming back (I did a bloody degree in chemistry so I should be able to remember something).

    Afternoon folks,
    Feeling a tad worse for wear after being out in Wombledon with school friends last night. Lying low is definitely the order of the day.

    Afternoon people,

    Full of some grot ive picked up spent most of Friday night an Saturday trying to eject my lungs via my mouth thus far it has failed, all I've managed is to put my back out
    Dog is making a great heated footrest though. Annoyingly I'm surrounded by bike goodies which I'm in no fit state to fit, OH is keeping the wood burner fed with some seasoned Oak. Reminds me need to order some more Fir for next winter. Something for when I'm not Ebola ridden.

    Stevo, I kind of miss doing that at school, our teacher (Mr Trotter) had Mercury in one of his fingers and was forever showing us how to make explosives. Always a fun testing out things.

    I missed out on this by choosing physics instead, I don't recall a single demonstration/experiment working for our teacher.
    We did pinch some magnesium though and rolled it into a cigarette for someone :mrgreen:

    to be frankly honest and not flippant, none of the MFs actually know where she is. She could be getting some p & q in the loft for all they know.....

    I thought the mfs went to get shot at in the cold, and tdv imploded in fury. But now the mfs are back, and tdv has fecked off.

    Wales is confusing.

    No excitingness here, just some low grade alcoholism. Barely even worth mentioning.
