    Morning, Doggy sitting, dad's taxi again. Looking a tad wintry outside.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    webex?

    DHLs packed off for the day, quick espresso then ride to work. Just above freezing so hopefully no slippery stuff.

    Morning, cold out. The useless piece of censored canopy on the back of the Glamorok has frozen shut too so I had to force it open, no way of defrosting it. It used to to it on the old one until I forced it and the catches snapped. Office move tomorrow, I'm the only one in so it's a good excuse to drink coffee and sit about.

    Also, it was sleeting on my ride last night and there is a nice layer of snow high up on the hills

    WFH, which meant a decent walk with the dog and breakfast with the family - so double win :)

    Later is running either in the woods at the back of the house or on the track in town

    Morning, flurry of snow not worth writing home about, lots of ice though made the bimble in rather tense.

    Work then later shall be enduring the inlaws who seem to have invited themselves

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional Thursday morning hangover today after an atypical Wednesday morning hangover yesterday. Coffee is helping. It seems to be permanently dark outside so I'm spending as much time as possible in pubs. What sort of madman gives up the booze in January? Looking at you H³.
    Need to go and see the old dear tonight, might take my sister to the pub. Quite chilly when wobbling in this morning, not quite freezing and it did try to snow at one point. Getting colder tomorrow, could take the old MTB in if it looks icy as the park does get a bit sketchy.
    Better get on, lots of work to do. on the bright side the days do go a lot quicker.

    I usually find Webex something people like to use while eating, I feel I need to up the ante at times maybe cull a chicken or gut a fish?

    V, with you on possibly using an MTB it was somewhat bum puckering a couple times coming in. OK it'll be slower but maybe a slightly lower chance of death on the MTB as I can go along the grass which should be less slidey.

    noisy eaters/slurpers/breathers/etc. definitely need culling, if they try it on calls/webexes i set up they get remotely muted or disconnected without warning

    just had a look. I'm amazed how the site looks so cheap when it's paid for by cisco. It's like one of those web-hosting providers run out of a garage, knocked up with badly managed clip-art. The mirrored images always get me, like this where the shirt is now buttoned from the right.

    Snow stopped play mid afternoon so we headed for the pool & sauna then hit the bar. Unhealthy food time soon. I hope my legs will take me the quarter of a mile to town.

    I have a Webtex base layer.

    Me knackered me. Wrestled with a fence post stuck in a 3" x 3" concrete hole. I fought the fence post and the fence post...
    Other than that, it was chilly today. Had to keep moving. Broke an SDS drill bit. Shiny engine parts came but no time to fit them. Have to go back the morra and finish the fence.

    Laters.

    Watch out for those tree roots.

    Been doing the krypton factor again in a big old house. Tried to go for a spin at the velodrome on the way back but not open for mortals today so went for a run instead and managed not to trip over any roots/rabbit holes/terriers/pensioners.
