Morning, just about to attend work for last day of shift set and CBA to ride in as yesterday ended up a grueler and legs still hurt from pedal home. Suspect today will be physically demanding again, however I can leave the the BS to someone else for a change. May run tonight instead if my weakened body can take it.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, a mild start to the day, back on site for the last day this job has been a nice earner
    Have a nice day

    Meant to be doing a hybrid commute with a run back but seem to have caught the family cold, headache, sore throat and heart rate 10 bpm higher than normal (still low enough to kill a non athlete) - this isn’t good as I’ve entered a race on Sunday on the back of A massive 285 miles this year so far

    Morning, not sure what's occurring work wise today, some bright spark decided meeting every other day for the state of the fault queue was a good idea so have to endure that.
    Pedalling in shortly on No2. Fitted some new rubber last night which was a total pig but managed it in the end but they appear to still have air all round which is a plus. May take a lunch wander round the lake as its the first day of spring apparently, an there's a pub...

    Morning folks,
    Started early and arrived to a slew of stupidity emailed from the other side of the pond. Why would anyone use the font called Broadway, even if they were making a sensible point it would look stupid written like that. Unless they were in Bugsy Malone perhaps.
    I also drove in as giving the Trouble a lift home, don't mind too much as still making the point about secure bike parking. Today being Wednesday I will of course be visiting a pub later.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Booked some flight over to Italy for ten days, unfortunately there will be no two wheeled based days on this trip.

    Still building wardrobes and will continue to do so into the weekend with the exception of Sunday morning when I've booked a half marathon. Joy.

    Survived work, clocked 15k steps up by dinner. I only pulled a few cables out on plant that are no longer used and jointed some others. Turns out I removed about a mile of cable. No wonder I'm on 25k steps now. Second doombar about to slide down nicely to be followed by a few more I suspect.

    Well I did ride in and back - probably.for the best in the name of letting.off some steam.

    Day started a bit censored and went downhill quickly when I got a call from the docs saying my old dears time on this Earth looks pretty limited. That trip up North has just come forward by a week.

    I think I'll have a drink.

    Ah not good, S666. Been down, or indeed up seeing as how Scotland involved, that road, twice indeed. All the best.

    Sorry to hear this. My mum died last August and even though my Dad had long gone, and she was ill etc etc ITS A FARKIN censored . Just make her happy while you can.

    Thanks Lads, at least this isn't a surprise like my old man a couple of years ago so I've had some time to prepare for the inevitable.

    I'm having another word with the medical professionals tomorrow then deciding when to travel up. Sadly dementia took the person I knew a few years back and now it looks like her body has probably decided to play catch up :(

    Morning....

    Went and located another pump track near work. A bit on the small side though so might need to invest in a bmx. Went for a spin around llandegla after work which was nice. Shame about the bit in between the riding.

    Sorry to hear the news stevo, sad end to the day.

    In some ways it will be a release - dementia is a life sentence and ****ing censored disease that kills a person and leaves a body behind.

    At least a very large glass of 40 yo tawny port that I won in the work Christmas raffle has made me feel a bit better. SG wpuld be proud of me.

    Allegedly it's the only thing he consumes apart from pineapples and Belgian orange chocolates.

    Thanks again everyone - good advice and offers noted. Will be talking to the medics again today and deciding when to travel.

    depends which one of the MFs he gets. At the moment they are all knackered and clogging up the floor/cupboards.

    I think that is definitely a category of it's own as it's hardly inconspicuous, so it's passed Pinno's categorisation panel board.
