    'to' and 'too' Oxo. That's the second time you have done that in recent history. My six year old noticed it and she is sat next to me. This country is going to the dogs.

    Coffee today and then some more coffee later.

    Shorty says she is going to play with her toys. 2 slices of toast with Nutella and watch 'her go. There's a big search on today to find Ellie the Teddy. Maybe there is a ransom note somewhere.

    Can someone fill me in on the Bongofish thread in road general? Who is/was Bongofish?

    Sorry Pinno. Apologies to your daughter. However suggest you refrain from looking at BR next to her, otherwise she might spot your pornhub shortcuts. Either way DILLIGAF. Suggest you don't explain that one either, only recently explained to my eldest.

    Tennis with mini. Cafe with Mrs and mini. Dog walk on the common in the weather that's better than where the MF's are. Rugby at pub in the posh bit of Wimbledon. Must avoid beer. Maybe I'll get stoned, if I can find my stash. Far out.
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 5,427
    Thought of being stoned with all the red-trousered Ruperts has brought me out in a muck sweat. Stash will remain unsearched for. I'll just bite down on a stick when the urge for a beer strikes.

    Tip trip done, car cleared and ready to go. In the meantime the sales bloke at the dealership where I'm picking up the new mota sent me an advance video of The Panzer, so no shortcut to Pornhub needed here :)

    Currently feeling miffed as stuck at work and it's fantastic riding weather. Arrrgh.

  • Swim at the beach this afternoon just along from home. Bit of a lazy day otherwise.Visitors staying this week, heading off tomorrow, so was forced to slack off and laze around like bums with them today.

    Worry not. I read all the posts before there is any chance that Shorty or Tricky reads them. All posts were pretty innocuous prior to then, as you would notice.

    Sitting in a garden centre cafe having pre time trial tea and cake.

    Bike's been stripped, cleaned and rebuilt this morning so it's about as fast and shiny as it gets, which isn't that much.
  • step83step83 Posts: 3,646
    Afternoon, tip trip also done, honking great mirror hung on the wall so OH Is happy.
    Fog too that's all burnt off now mind nice an sunny out no pedal today many random censored jobs to do but should be out tomorrow.

    Pinno, bongo was some troll account thing from what I understand.

    Matt, that Ti frame comes off offer end of the weekend according to my emails.

    Toodle pip much cleaning then hopefully investigate a pub garden.

    It's immaterial. You can't stick to one thing or perhaps even 2 things. I think that there is deeper issues such as boredom.

    But it won't stop there. There will be all the dithering about what bits to chuck on it and what deep section rims to purchase... endless. Whatever we say won't matter a jot.
