Morning All. Last day at work today, leaving the OH and eldest to do the food shopping. :lol: saves me getting stressed out. Just a tad damp outside after last night's deluge. Dog is going in the oven later if I catch it, woke me up several times in the night wanting attention :( . Eldest will also be buried up the garden as its his fault and technically his dog. Otherwise all good. Enjoy the pre Christmas madness.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    All feeling below par with a Christmas cold so parkrunnis cancelled. Think the wife has sorted everything for Christmas bar the eldest suit - so they can enjoy the hell of town.

    Later is out with friends

    Contemplating parkrun but don't think I can be bothered cleaning my bike again after riding there and back.
    The In laws are coming over to visit today, girlfriend has planned an action packed day for them.

    You could offer to marshall if you didn't want to embarrass yourself, or take the dog and be the one at the back telling them all to stop chatting and get a move on.

    Oh, marshalling is great, done it myself for local bike races. You get to shout all the cliches like "dig deep" and "tap out a rythym" to some poor suffering wretch.

    Much strangeness on my BR account 1st thing. Love thy neighbor etc...

    i just vomited on myself during my bike ride for no reason at all - steady pace on the flat. it wasn't the nicest vomit ever but it cleared the pipes.

  • Morning all.
    Having a cider and contemplating yard chores. Maybe mow the lawn later if it dries up enough. By that I mean Mrs BBGeek will mow the lawn whilst I shout encouragement.
    And that’s about it.
    Cheers.

    Strifey has done a list of jobs for me to do, including a present for the dog :roll:

    However priority number one is to get my skis down to the local ski emporium to get the edges and bases done - counting down now 8) Cider may feature, but maybe not as early as for BBG.

    Just had an offer I can't refuse. Gin Wisky or Vodka from a very nice company. Rude to refuse I thought. Not cheap rubbish either.

    just claim that you allegedly have asthma then take huge and massive amounts of salbutamol then deny that you ever did anything that might break any rules and you'll be fine.

  • Haircut in the morning, fluids on the car, lunch then got the cases out of the loft for ten days at the outlaws. Disaster, washing machine decided to leak all over the kitchen floor. Spent the afternoon soaking up, fault finding, cleaning clagg and testing. Hopefully is ok as I really don't want to buy the wife a new washing machine until valentine's Day.

    Fair enough really. Although you don't want it to break down at all. If it does, buy her a washing board and a mangle and then get her a Hair dryer for Valentine's day instead. It's cheaper than a washing machine.

    is your haircut as good as mine?

    and don't worry about buying her a washing machine. TDV is getting some jump leads.

    ...which she (if she has any sense and she does) will use on you.

    I did say to her that this was the only way.
