Morning All. Off to work shortly for last shift till back end of next week. Dark and relatively warm outside for a change. Looks like I'm definitely car hunting whilst off as the repair has muted the dreaded BER beyond eco repair, bit surprised as mostly plastic that was damaged. Oh well. Big pig based breakfast to look forward to later and a bon jovi tribute concert to attend to keep OH happy. Enjoy the wkend All.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Parkrun (officiating) this morning, time trial this afternoon. Got a stinking cold so that will be fun.

    Morning, dog walked, breakfast been and gone, shopping done, just having a drink before the 8:30 club run, what a lovely morning
    Have a good weekend

    Off out shortly with the newly MOT'd oil burner to see what someone will pay me for it. I know the answer is not a lot but its a question of how little. Better now than when they're as good as banned from London.

    Lovely day if a little breezy.

    Trying to off load (somewhat over energetic rugrats) so I can do other things.

    Laters.

    Trail run followed by parkrun with the wife, now off to a Presidents’ Day at the rugby club, going to messy

    Dog walked. And what a pleasurable opening statement. Now he's discovering the outside world I find myself getting out and talking to complete strangers in parks. Not in any sense I can't discuss with the wife....

    Afternoon folks,
    Sorting stuff out for trip to Amsterdam is the main thing to do today, various other bits of pottering as usual. Wife and I have got all our stuff into one bag, daughter has managed to fill the second bag on her own. :roll: Good news is that limits the amount of shopping that can be done. I'm not buying another suitcase.

    Give it time Harv and I'm sure that will come.

    If you're going with wife and kid that'll limit the amount of window shopping you can do :P

    Ryanair is it? You're better off putting daughter in the bag. Or driving.. :?

    Re parks, haven't ventured out after dark yet. Surely at this time of year it will be ok though??

    The road trip from Sydney to Noosa covers a few of them. The Big Oyster, The Big Banana, The Big Prawn, The Big Pineapple, and even for a while there was a Little Ayers Rock although it burnt down a while ago.

    Plenty of space to be sure. A bit short on taste, perhaps.

    Papier mache is a sure way to replicate a rock steeped in history and local myth.

    at least it unlikely to have a horde of w4nker back packers climbing all over it...
