Morning. Work, well I'm attending if that counts. Dark and warmish outside.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Iya

    Not that warm here yet.
    Off to parkrun, but to point and shout at people. Excuse for a bike ride to get there.

    Got a cross country race on at lunchtime, so this morning is chilling and resting my legs.

    Later will be fluid recovery :)

    'Just' ! No pineapple or napalm... coffee...? 15-20 word precis. I fully endorse shirking but this is getting ridiculous.

    I don't know what's becoming of this place.

    I'm off on a run a today. Yep you heard it here. I'm off for a run into the sticks to collect wood in the van.
    Taking Tricky with me. She's gorgeous, gorgeous but gorgeous comes at a hell of a price. I will always wonder if I would have preferred a less complicated daughter but butt ugly.

    Laters.

    Pedal free day, unless the turbo gets dragged back out.

    Consultant who I saw yesterday about my dodgy shoulder endorsed chiropractor's suggestion for extended exercise regime involving weights and swimming. Latter this afternoon; nearest town has a brand new pool, will choose a lane swimming session to avoid hordes of noisy weans weeing in the water. Though with a more elderly set of swimmers... choices, choices.

    In meantime, to the jungle for more clearance work.

    Morning workers, runners and shirkers (I think that covers everyone),

    Decent lie in. Got a few jobs to do and the plumber coming round to fix the shower. This afternoon I have to pop round to the local ski emporium now they've sorted the blunt edges and corduroy pattern bases on my skis - countdown is progressing :)

    Luckily Stropteen is too busy to drag me out looking at cars.

    Long lunch at home today with visiting friends. Had a nap in the late afternoon sun after they left, and then started back on more wine.

    No complaints. :)

    Afternoon folks,
    Slightly foggy head this morning after the quiet drink at the neighbours. Not up to TLW’s standards of course. Bit of pottering done, fixed a couple of things on the Mini and in the house. Chilling with a cup of tea before starting on other odd jobs.
    Not as good as Spinner’s day, might still have a nap though.

    Elderly seepage or toots seepage?

    At least that's what I think you are trying to say.

    Less of a tradition than a soggy principality with a sheep fetish.

    Reminds me of this old chestnut (aopologies to Wheelspinner):
    The Australian Prime Minister flies to England for a meeting with the Queen. Over a cup of tea, the PM brings up his grand new plan for his country. ‘Your Majesty, mate,’ he begins. ‘Can we turn Australia into a kingdom, in order to increase our role in the global economy?’ The Queen shakes her head and replies, ‘One needs a king for a kingdom, and unfortunately you are most certainly not a king.’ Not to be dissuaded, the politician asks, ‘Would it be possible to transform Australia into an empire, then?’ ‘No,’ replies the Queen. ‘For an empire you need an emperor, and you are most certainly not an emperor.’ The PM thinks for a moment and then asks if it’s possible to turn Australia into a principality. The Queen replies, ‘For a principality, you need a prince – and you are not a prince.’ Pausing for a sip of her tea, Her Majesty then adds: ‘I don’t mean to appear rude, but having met both you and several other Australians, I think Australia is perfectly suited as a country.’

    Wasn't it [telling] a variation of that joke that got Kenny Everett banned from the BBC?

    ...but didn't Kenny Everett put on some oversized polystyrene hands at a Tory conference?

    One hell of a funny guy went way to early. Suspect he might of been gagged permanently at the BBC had he been still around. Can't we clone him like dolly the sheep.
