    Morning. Awake, Work, Idiots to assist and maybe pleasure later. Cool and dry with lots of dawn chorus noise.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning
    Was going to go running this morning but had a rubbish night's sleep so might sack that off. Part 3 of my appraisal later and still not had a chance to do anything for it.
    Looks like it's going to be another nice day weather wise 8)

    Morning, nippy here again but looking good for later, today will involve some cycling
    Have a good day

    Ciao

    Bunking off school today, so coffee drunk, about to take the hound out then a quick meeting and some more coffee then onwards. Have to go and sort a chainsaw out then maybe a weights sesh or a spin on the bi-cycle if time permits. Will also wrap 'bars today and contemplate taking a picture and penning some words, however I am sure no matter what I say I'll offend someone for either not being gushing enough or being too gushing or contradicting what their mate at the shop/club/sauna said/did not say/may have said/saw in a magazine/did not see in a magazine.

    Got a call to tell me that my old dear passed away in her sleep early this morning. Heartbroken but in some ways a merciful release and she didn't suffer.

    Headed North to deal with stuff once I've sorted out what I need to take. I'll come up for air at some point.

    Sorry to hear the news, hope you're OK. Like you say at least it was peaceful.

    Morning,

    Condolences Stevo as you said at least it was peaceful.

    Quiet day here doing admin things, Matt pen away I still need to do something for mine once I chop the steerer a bit more, still debating superzero bars but the dog also needs a new harness as shes growing, dam puppy!

    Morning folks,
    Brief pause for a coffee and a cup of tea so checked in here. So sorry to hear that Stevo, horrible news but I completely understand what you mean about a merciful release and peacefully in your sleep is probably the best anyone can hope for.
    Otherwise it's another busy day here. Have to bunk off early and head up to Bethnal Green as the female child has a photo in the exhibition for a competition she entered.

    and i've also just sold the saddle that came on the S3 - wrong type for me - so the purchase cost has dropped even further.

    ciao

    S3 (with different saddle from the one i sold), N1, crit bike, cx bike, single speeder racer with 80s, flat barred Charge Plug, CAAD2 MTB, Vitus Peugeot thing that has never turned a wheel, Trek thing in Italy, Ridgeback Storm that will get some drop bars to go gravel bike, 1x Boardman,10 x MTBs at work.

    then TT bike that needs steerer chopping off, Dirk that needs steerer unseizing.

    then another couple of frames on the wall with all the bits for them in boxes together with some more in the loft that are just sitting there.

    So, overall, one for each of us and no time to ride any of them.

    He was probably from Cornwall or Glamorgan or Strathclyde or, pretty much anywhere in the UK.

    Coming up for air.

    Thanks for all the sentiments expressed guys. Not the easiest day ever but got a lot done and now supping G&T after a big fish supper after spending a fair bit of time on the phone to friends and rellies.

    Busy day tomorrow seeing undertakers solicitors and vicars, in the meantime the minions seem to be holding the fort rather well.
