    Morning, cold in that wind whilst walking the dog, painting one wall in the conservatory, then a bash on the rollers later

    Sungod, sounds like you're at Gare du Nord. What do you make of the lopsided house-"art" presumably....?

    Longer walk with the hound was nice as no commute today.

    Leg feels ok after getting pummelled by an easy on the eye physio

    Later is probably visit my parent before they censored off on another inheritance busting holiday

    Morning, taxi service then mutt walking this morning. Hopefully a gentle ride around laters if feeling better. Just a tad cool outside and very dark.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Did you tell the physio it was your upper leg that was hirting at the front? Also maybe get your folks a bumper sticker that says 'I'm going skiing (spending the kids inheritance)', just as a subtle hint.

    Good luck to SG, although it's not often that other countries visit France and not emerge victorious.

    Chilly today and for a change I have quite a lot of meetings. Seems people have woken up after the Christmas hols.

    Chilly this morning, ducks doing duck things on the lake and coffee being brewed.
    Works slowly ramping up but thus far zero im actually involved in so I can remain lurking behind the dividers for now.

    They have figured out that you'll only drink it anyway.

    Today appointments. Then some more tinkering with gaskets and the like.

    Chilly but bright.

    I would build an extension and buy some new bikes also :)

    dominate and crush them my son. show no mercy.

    all things good here - final parts of packing happening, we're all still in shock over a new bod's utter badmin.

    time for - bizarrely - a cup of tea.

    Afternoon. Site meeting this morning where Biggus Houndus knackered himself out in the mud, followed by suit shopping again (after last night's wrong trouser f*ckup), disappointment of no vegan sausage rolls in greggs (to show Mr mOrgan we are not afraid). Currently sat in the office avoiding thinking about client meeting tomorrow by procrastinating on the internet. Hill reps tonight to take my mind off it. C0ck c0ck c0ck

    Spending today getting used to new laptop. It's an exquisite little thing but the so-called docking station is really just a glorified junction box and my desk is now looking like a dropped pasta meal. I'm still missing an adapter so I've lost one of my monitors, and to add insult to injury it doesn't supply power like the old one did; the laptop still requires plugging in to a separate power supply...

    Hardware aside, we're also lurching from Windows 7 to 10, so I'm spending a lot of time finding out where it's hiding things. Luckily we have a Win 10 laptop at home so I'm marginally less clueless than some of my colleagues.

    First world problems I know...

    In other news, I'm sure the days are getting longer already :D
  • Bloody cold here, so much so I haven't even set foot in the workshop!

    Decent run last night, rest day today and Spanish pork with clams (without clams) for dinner. yumyumyummyyum.

    I have a Microsoft surface book which not only has whatever the latest windows is, it also turns into a tablet which inexplicably changes the layout of absolutely everything. Why can't I just use the tablet with a normal start menu and desktop?!
  • My surface is pretty good and I do like it, however my gopro kills it and buying a mac is pointless as all our work systems are windows.

    This is good for the mapping software I use for work, glad I got the surface book rather than the surface pro like my colleague as I like the proper keyboard for working at home, plus the extra battery and graphics card. I only really use it in tablet mode for writing swear words all over pdfs when I'm on site. Very handy.

    Attention! Lopsided house? What do you make of it? And that Eurostar quiche....mon dieu

    I clocked the TGV at 295km/h last week. Why can't we have this (on existing lines not ripping up half the country?) S'ok I know an answer...

    Funny that. We bought a Dell laptop. Still finding our way around.

    This is the same country that made a load of new trains, rolled them out then realised they are too wide for some of the stations...
