'ning

office of gmc, coffee etc., feeling grumpy, may do some stabbing in the face, i feel it's more personal than in the back, plus you get to see their eyes

saw some geese yesterday, london waters not frozen though

    Double hybrid commute today, as I park up, cycle in and run back to the car.

    Later is probably a film with the youngest rugrat as the eldest is working

    Yep, it also means that 't1t Monday' will arrive that little bit sooner.

    On the train into town. Stropteen is packing her bags and headed up to Cambridge this afternoon to do a couple of days of shadowing one of the tutors at the vet school, so peace will reign until Friday. Onwards to lots of work.

    Morning, dull and dry around here. Car hunt starts today, couple of test drives planned. Looks like it's going to be petrol after nearly 2 decades of diesels. OH has even approved budget increase to get better newer car. Notice the essay writers have been busy again.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Morning

    MTB into work again, only because I couldn't be bothered getting it out of the car last night.
    Need to start clearing my desk as I'm away next week and all the towers of paper won't be here when I get back.

    It's slippery (but not flooded) in the meadows if you were planning on going back that way.

    Morning folks,
    Last day in the ‘dam. Might get back in time for the pub. Hotel is opposite a big shiny office block that contains the European Medicines Agency, Brexit is taunting me.
    How’s TLW’s bike going to get home?

    Morning, office day today after two days away working on the Mull of Kintyre. Extremely tired, need lots of coffee. More indoor cycling tonight, absolutely killed myself yesterday as I was knackered from work/weekend. Hooray

    i was in catterick ages ago when some Typhoons (the new things, not the old things) followed by some Spitfires buzzed us. it was cool.

    but not as cool as this: https://youtu.be/vdHBsWXaHN8

    They came past here yesterday but was too busy being harassed about stuff that I missed it.

    We used to get them fly over as according to the MOD where we lived at the time was unpopulated, normally it was fine but occasionally youd get woken up middle of the night by a low flying Chinook or jet.

    Where I am now we get the odd hurricane spitfire or DC2. No jets but I do prefer the old prop planes. A few of them use Cranfield by me as a spot over on the way to air shows which is nice.

    Spotted them yesterday out our way, blink and you almost miss them. Have seen the replacements being put through their paces on Norfolk coast, bloody noisy. Car hunting finished, after 2 decades of oil burners gone to eco friendly petrol. Only downside is i now have to pay road tax, arghh.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Doggy fashion only.

    Mad dreams not too distant from this thread title, catalysed by morphine.
    I seem to remember harassing Hoppy for cash, though that may have been before the morphine.
    No Geese or Pineapples appeared in these visions.

    ...and in my bestest Welsh, it's kicking off in CS lovely.

    Properly too. I need some popcorn.
    It's a shame the MFs can't add the poll to the CS thread.

    You don't get many offers to invest in the ever expanding chain of Pinno's pop-up-emporia. Obviously I immediately liquidated all my gold/London property/blue chip equity assets, and am now long pop-ups. A safe haven in these uncertain times. Anyone who wishes to follow me into this attractive asset class should send funds directly to me, and I will allocate them appropriately, and furnish you with the lavish returns as and when they roll in.
