Morning. Chilling, bimble on bike and very dark outside enjoy.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, I signed in yesterday to see if anyone had a Garmin for sale in the ad section and saw I had a PM from November. I have been slacking, I'll try to change that as my new years resolution...

    Went for a ride yesterday, it was minus 7.5 minimum and my beard froze. Sitting in the officenow, first day back.

    Morning
    Park+Run to work this just for a change. Quite mild (well, +1°C), probably because I'd dressed to go to the north pole.
    Computer's stuck in an endless update loop this so can't see it being a very productive day.

    Same as yesterday. Kid wrangling while Mrs H3 is at work.

    Morning , cold and frosty here, but it looks like we might see some sunshine, or at least blue skies, I could really do to spend some time in the garden , the conservatory roof needs cleaning but I might just go for a ride :)

    Morning, cold (car beeped to inform me if was only 3.5c) Drove in as car needs new tyres. Very quiet again here I think most took this week off which in hindsight would of been a smart idea.

    Todays plan
    Read news
    coffee
    More reading
    Tyres
    Shop for packable emergency jacket thing
    nap
    go home
    eat
    pub


    Considering I'm yawning already I may insert more naps.

    Hayden I have an Edge 800 lurking around if its any interest

    Sounds tempting, I'll PM you in a bit once I've done some research. I'm planning some long multi day stuff again this year, I think I can charge my Forerunner watch during an activity but I really need something with a proper mapping function. I also need new cheap wheels for the Genesis as the gravel tyres are tubeless and too much faff to switch, don't fancy 600km on the Argon yet

    Mild and a bit foggy this morning. I don't know what the weather is doing.
    Might go collecting wood. Might not. I did not sleep well. Perhaps 10 coffees can lift me out of this slumber.

    Laters (if I can be bothered)

    Started growing my beard about the same time I must have stopped coming on the forum actually...

    But did he go shopping yesterday?

    Afternoon folks,
    Managed to wobble in to work today, very slowly I might add. Stopped for a coffee then bumped into a colleague that was walking in so had a bit of a chat and put the world to rights. Now fighting computers and trying to order stuff.
    HM woke up, thought he'd gone into hibernation. At -7.5 it seems like a good idea to me. Hope all is well. Are you just like your dear papa?
    Might go and have some lunch shortly.

    Jesus is it still only lunch - censored time is going a lot slower than it did last week
  • Hello internet! 2nd day back at work, day one consisted of a mad dash to site meeting as a client changed stuffs.

    How is everyone, fatter? To be expected but now I have less than 100 days to train up for 26.2 miles of runnering. The upside of that is that 13 of those days will be spent hurtling down mountains with planks on my feet.
    Advocate of disc brakes.

    too tight for pedals?

    Thursday is mainly skipping, jumping and pressing wild flowers, or rather pressing loads of ground ivy into large bags to haul away for burning. Might cut down a tree later, unless the feminine clothing gets in the way. Dry weather, dry ground, crack on with clearing a further patch of the inherited overgrown jungle.

    I reckon he's been to the lavatory a few times.

    How hard can it be?
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 9,721
    Homer, you'll manage. I've got double the time and half the distance all be it twice. And packing extra like most other BBers after Christmas.

  • I'm hoping so, entered with a mate and we're both about as rubbish as each other so should be some fun along the way.

    Au contraire. We now embrace gender fluidity and celebrate our (well not mine obviously) feminine sides.

    Skiing must count as training, as.long as you don't get legless every night.

    I thought I'd hate every second, but there was eye candy, plus Merton doing the music hall style schtick that every panto needs.

    Fair enough, I once volunteered to go to a panto on the basis that Linda Lusardi was in it.
