not too cold, hill repeats, coffee and nibbles beckon, followed by pineapple and laziness

    Hola

    Off to llandegla in a bit to see if the parable of narrow wide chainrings is true.
    Staying in bed seems like a good option though right now.

    Morning All, Parkrun run beckons and I suspect it will be a bit muddy. Thistle what happened to the invites, sneaking off to llandegla on your own. Enjoy, one of my favourite trail centres.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Nice walk with the hound spoilt by knowing I’ve got a bit of work to catch up on. Need to get a move on though as going shooting soon.

    Off to Sunny Snodland in deepest darkest Kent to collect junior's car. Disguise at the ready for when I get back to Bromley.

    Mates 50th tonight so should be a good one.

    It has yet to reach Biblical status.

    Windy but mild here.
    Tomorrow will be windy but cold apparently.

    Hopefully, Mrs P will give them the run around in it and wear them out. They seem to have quite ridiculous amounts of energy today.

    Morning folks, traditional slow start is being enjoyed.
    I used to work with a lad from Snodland, I envisaged a marsh land populated with inbred trolls that live in caves or under bridges.
    Need to buy a spoke for the hack and do a bit of pottering, nothing too strenuous mind.

    windycold ride, needed much coffee, a choc, avocado and salmon roll, and a toasted cheese croissant just to keep going

    london's infestation of temporary traffic lights is worsening, as are associated accidents and near misses i suspect

    just noticed ' in harrods, grrrr, bloody autocomplete, it's these little things that lead to the breakdown of society

    Parkrun completed along with perving and eldest lads finally sold his old car. Plenty of parking spaces now. Sadly no spare car to use.

    Big breakfast at the café. Dog walked for 2 hours to burn it off. Mini off to a pal for a sleepover. Me and Mrs H3 off to the cinema later, then dinner.

    Good call. Got out of Snodland as fast as I could. Which wasn't very fast given what I was driving. Kept the go pedal nailed on the M20 and got it up to 70 :lol:

    You've caned it, it no longer produces 59bhp and she hasn't even got it yet. :roll:

    If you were worried about her speeding...

    It's not exactly new so it has had 30k miles of running in. Anyhow, speeding will always be a bit theoretical in that car if there's a bit of an uphill gradient.

    We could go tomorrow but my wheel is in bits awaiting repair.
    Who knew fitting a new chainring makes your spoke snap and shoot through the rim strip instantly deflating a tubeless tyre :roll:
    At least my chain didn't drop.

    Romanian whiskey, followed by port, champagne, champagne and port mixed and then rum. This was before 12 - how the hell nobody gets shot on these shoots is beyond me

    Thistle I think a forum meet may be in order in the nicer weather perhaps. Pity about your wheel.
