    Morning

    Washing on (so now it's raining obv), bathroom cleaned, 1 bike repaired. Options now are:
    Find and repair slow puncture in commuter bike, which is filthy and hasn't been ridden for 3 weeks
    Patch the 20 or so inner tubes hanging on the back of the door

    Morning. At work taking it steady after yesterday's no excuses ride destroyed me. Headwind didn't help or the last hill, ouch. At least I'm only working 2 days this set.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    You won't get an awful lot of sympathy from me.
    Also, following a recent international study on the relative acidity of imported Pineapples (and their associated physical side effects): As you get older, your blood gets more acidic. To counteract this, you need to eat more greens.
    Now, had you lived in the tropics where the choice of Pineapple allows one to choose the less acidic, sweeter fruit, you wouldn't have quite the rate of fruit related acid deterioration.

    Border(?) than SG me. Slightly sore hip but I am going to have a go at driving today.
    Don't worry, left leg is good and the car is auto.

    Laters.

    Soggy day here and back the normal Sunday routine. Chance of some quality coffee later when I drop in on a mate in between Dads taxi work. For now a spot of chilling, as it's easy like Sunday morning.

    Don't shatter SG's dreams.

    Have fun pressing the pedals with your good leg...my left leg was wondering why it was redundant the last couple of days. And my left arm for that matter.

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed. Unenforced laziness is a fine thing. Cleaned the bike and replaced the chain yesterday, trying for a third chain on the same cassette as it wasn’t too worn. Slight skip but I’m hoping it will settle in. Not least because I’m upgrading to proper full hydraulics and 11 speed soon. Might have to bring that forward, just need a chain, cassette and rear mech.
    Just gentle pottering today.

    Big day... spot of chainsaw action first up to clear a drooping branch over the driveway, then a day of DIY wardrobe disassembly. Managed to offload the lot via Farkbook for a small profit too. Now trying to get a punter to come take away the carpet for free..

    Ciao

    Went out on CX bike. Chain snapped twice. Came home, went out with TDV to her HIIT session and ending up being opposite some fit ginger bird with huge norks and a low top. Her plank position was very good.

    Now spending the day in pyjamas drinking Fleurie and doing prepping a days instruction for next week.

    You learnt to love autos; Jump in, start up and squeeze the juice.
    All your faculties can then be better deployed rubbernecking or seeing which bit of skirt is attracted to a middle aged man.

    But how about this for an auto:

    It even has it's own picnic table.

    I made bread and we did something similar. The toots are mad on home made bread. I wish they were a bit more mad on other home made stuff.

    I'm getting used to it quickly. Great for trundling round the 'burbs and motorway work when I can just let the computer swap the cogs and I get on with the driving (there's 9 gears to play with), but the flappy paddles will be great for some fast road fun once its run in.

    GT3 RS = awesome track tool and fantastic hardcore sports car. Sounds and looks spot on as well 8) Pity about the price and fact they're almost impossible to get hold of without paying a massive premium or buying a few Porsches from your friendly franchised dealer beforehand.

    Why not? You can fit a mattress in the back.

    I though Estates were the vehicle of choice for dogging over there?

    That's quite correct sir and, Stevo is in shouting distance from Essex.
