So I'm going to throw caution to the wind and post 3.5 hours early. Today I'll board a Greater Anglia train to London town. Wish me luck.

    No. Not based on the decisions you made.

    Yesterday's ride to work was a bit of a shock to the system, legs don't want to move today.

    Sungod, aren't you and Mrs SG on holiday yet?

    Morning, mild again job for today cleaning the guttering out no doubt they will be covered in moss, so a later bike ride will be in order

    Wotcha glass crankers and OAP's.

    Not a lot happening for me today. Bloody hungry though. Going to haul myself/bribe someone to get me a decent coffee. I wonder what sort of coercion/blackmail/bribery I could apply?

    Yes we run on ≠GMT so nothing is ever early, late or on time.

    Morning from Angliashire, very damp for no real reason misty in the woods this morning light on the dog proving useful as per. Did debate when it was in the darker realms slapping a very powerful one on her harness but couldnt be bothered.

    Anyway more watching TV today minor risk of some work being done

    Besides the wrong start day, are going to keep this thread in order?

    Things appear to have gotten out of hand. Who is to blame?

    DI2 may just have crept into the online basket.

    Visitors, food, drinks, chat, noise. Work in between a distraction.

    I think it went off the rails a while ago, pineapple deprivation does things to SG.

    Sneaky DI2 sneaking into the basket does sound sneaky to me.

    Boring news, I ordered some inserts for my Oakley Jawbreakers so I can use my prescription inserts, 5 days to get her fro Malaysia so I'm pretty impressed. May pop home shortly an test them.

    Afternoon in-patients and out-patients,

    Cycled in then busy morning dealing with various rubbish. Still getting used to our newly refurbed office, but it really is rather nice compared to the 'before'. They've also named each meeting room after someone famous or inspirational and there was much tittering going on when we noticed that one of them was named the 'Lovelace' room :lol: When I asked the girl in our comms department how they arrived at the name, she explained it was a different one from what people thought and went a bit pink. I resisted the temptation to say anything else at that point.

    No mention of Geese though. This is either good news or bad news.

    Back from Cov. Abnormal load on the M40 was tedious.

    Bike is finally back together. New bb, new crankset, new chain, new rear derailleur, new cassette plus new Ti and carbon qr skewers off planet x. Running and shifting like a dream on the little test ride. No doubt it'll all explode in a hail of shrapnel tomorrow. My hands are farking filthy, took me a looong time, but quite pleased with myself.

    Due to the inherent apathy and laziness from the usual early birds, you got off scot free.

    Did you make it to London? More importantly, can you make it out?

    I would invert that. I'm glad the queen and her crazy driver of a husband live there as I don't. It's far safer this way.
