quick nip into office of gmc to do a secure thing fortified by coffee and mince pie, then very early bail, bit of shopping

    WFH bail at lunch by which time I hope the current wife has sorted Christmas, so we can go to the pub

    Morning. Contemplating blue sky, view over the lake and a trip to the patisserie. Work free zone here.

    Morning, nice morning despite the frost, at least it’s stopped raining, a quick twenty miles on the rollers will be sufficient this morning, lunch time Christmas begins
    Have a good day

    Frosty, frosty, frosty. Looks crystal clear after all the fog. I forgot how wet you get cycling through the stuff.

    A few jobs to do, nothing Crimble related thank god. Maybe i'll sneak some coffee and cake as the Ministry of Muppetry have things planned, which leaves me unpoliced.

    Laters.

    Morning, chilly one this morning crunchy puddles and misty. Not sure when I'll finish up today depends on when the MD scurries away.
    Blagged a pub lunch tomorrow which should be amusing all of two minutes walk and I can bring the dog so its win win. Eat, get drunk, use dog to guide me home, sleep. Sounds like a sound plan to me.

    Morning. Currently considering getting up, may go for a bimble later if head clears. Eldest took me for a beer last night and we had a few more than usual. Weather looks dry and cool here. OH currently suffering with female version of man flu and boy are we suffering. Hopefully it will do one. To those still working hurry up get it sorted and get home ready to celebrate.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Working from home today so think I will catch up on a bit of admin. Might have to authorise some treasury transaction at lunchtime so can't switch off completely quite yet. Very early finish on the cards as traditionally we tell anyone still working on the 24th to pack their bags after lunch.

    Hopefully those are mainly food references?

    Yikes, sorry to hear that. Hopefully you'll both be home soon. Not really the time for this debate but 111 pretty useless in my area (N Essex), I'm sure A&E will have your OH checked over pretty quickly though.

    Quick ride they said, forecast looks good they said, it'll be fun they told me.
    75 miles in the cold and fog so probably going to sit on the sofa all day now.
    The fog cleared eventually and there was a brass band en route.

    Afternoon folks,
    At work and half the system is down so I can do even less than I was planning to do. But it's Christmas and I really don't care any more. Got invited down to the sales office for cheese and biscuits earlier, told them they should crack the Port open, so they did.
    Hope the other half is alright Oxo. Enjoy the rest of the day folks, I intend to.
  • gosport is special, isn't it?
    “Special” is one word for it. On the plus side and linking to the days title, smack is very easy to find in Gosport, so every cloud and all that.
    Doing some shopping and admin stuff today. Later is some cooking, maybe lamb.
    Hope the OH gets well soon oxo.
    Cheers.

    Hope all OK - I'm sure loading her up with a bit of drink won't hurt though.

    My out of office auto reply is now telling everyone to jog on 'till January, so am shortly headed out for a quick pre-Xmas run with Stropteen :shock: then its probably time to randomly select some grog to consume and see what tat is on the box while Strifey toils in the kitchen :)

    I do hope for your sake that there's no female doggy in the locale on heat.

    Lunch done.

    Carols from Kings and a couple of glasses of champagne done.

    Cheeses and a choice of sweet wines await once the bundle of energy that is mini H3 is hustled into bed. Just finishing off Mary Poppins first.

    Pub is open at midday tomorrow.

    Think I finished off Mary Poppins earlier. Just a thought. Lamb shanks and pots dauphinoise scoffed, wood burner on.
    The woodburning device has worked its magic and the Mrs is pushing out the zeds.
    Watching rubbish TV and slurping red wine. Have a cool time everyone, whatever you are up to over the next few days.
    Cheers!

    .

    bet you are my son, bet you are.

    bear in mind that if you get caught you'll be in a lot more trouble than if you had just bashed several out over PP the other night.

    Thank you SG, surprised nobody else followed up on that.
    Just been out for drinks at a friend’s with a few others. Now relaxing into more relaxing. Have a good one folks, love and happiness to all.

    May be subtle for most as I can't see it even on re-reading. Do we have to watch Trainspotting again to get it?

    Well we is finally home OH discharged eventually after deciding the systems she presented this morning were caused by virus/flu and not a stroke. Pretty scary for a while, couldn't fault local A&E or the ward staff. Feel sorry for them having to put up with some of the numptys coming in though. All's well now apart from I didn't finish the Christmas card and prezzie drop off. Merry Christmas to you all.

    So she'll be fine to make the dinner then? :wink:
    Merry Christmas Oxo.
