    Windy here too, legs still tired from cycling into it for 3 hrs yesterday :(

    Hound walked and now a decent pace run before pacing the current wife and her pal at a more sedate speed.

    Then off to see my grandma followed by the local

    Has Vindemiatrix III cooled down enough for Pineapple groves SG?!
    I think you are telling porkies.

    Windy and mild here. I'm going to sauna my head cold to death today.

    Laters.

    Morning mild and breezy here. Late start today after eldest poles up the worse for wear at about 4 this morning and promptly wakes everyone up except youngest lad. Taking OH for meal to celebrate her birthday Monday if eldest is still alive.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Swim this morning, continuing the hopefully remedial additional exercise regime on the dodgy shoulder by strengthening those long term slacker muscle groups. Heavy session with chiropractor yesterday afternoon, but much improved mobility afterwards, very noticeably better movement, which is a good sign. Just need that injection of 'roids now...

    Just relaxing with a cup of coffee.

    Main task of the day will be packing my ski gear - headed off tomorrow night after work, so Monday will be my Friday. That sounds good to me.

    I might see if I can blag a long weekend by myself in st anton or somewhere round there. I think they've had a few flakes of snow there, so conditions might be reasonable.

    Just a bit of snow there at the moment - not sure how you'll manage that and stick to your 3 month dry period mind, especially in St. Anton :)

    How do you take the WD40? I've tried it with tonic and with tomato juice, but doesn't do it for me.

    Petit chien (chiot) woke us up at 5:00am today but has otherwise been a joy. He's seen off a particularly aggressive leaf by the back door, and as he's taken care of toilet business in the garden he's already achieving legendary status. Tomorrow I intend to demonstrate to him the finer points of a Campag derailleur, just to test his intellect.

    In point of fact this one is all about slippers. If we are invaded by an alien race who by chance resemble lady's Tesco pink slippers I can guarantee your safety.

    Mine brings me whatever she can find when I get home. Slippers, socks, a ball, crisp packet. It's all good in her eyes. I appreciate the gift, and say thanks.

    Hopefully I can train mine to bring me my cycling shoes, gilet etc. And equally hopefully the wife won't suspect a t'ing.

    Terrier is it Harv? They're good at sniffing and ratting. My mum has a jack russell/yorkie cross. It'll get you stuff, but won't let go. Barks at any bigger dog too. Small dog syndrome.

    Border Terrier. We had 2 Westies previously. Balls of solid rock. Except they were girls but you get the point. 8)
