    Morning All. Pedalling shortly before it starts raining. More garden based stuff and a tip run as well.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Hound walking followed by running, god knows why I agreed to it last night (maybe ale related). Then garden jobs with petrol powered toys
  • In work(boo) and also annoyed that Tesco no longer seem to supply fuel 24hrs a day. The pay at pumps are all locked up. Maybe only this area but been like it for a while so maybe they no longer do it. Will have to fill car on way home which is a pet hate. Also raining.

    Ask TLW to piddle in your tank.

    Looks grim this morning. Back down south today for my sins.

    early morning low of 22 when i headed out :D

    very humid though, four sticky hours, currently 26-ish but gone pretty hazy

    working through my random selection of energy bars to find something to replace the defunct zipvit choc ones, last week i found that the veloforte 'ciocco' is foul, had to bin it, today i tried their 'zenzero', well it's better, actually ate it, but only rates a meh

    I pedalled out to watch a few friends doing the not so local triathlon. It was around 18 here but it's windy, so it's nice until it turned into a headwind.

    I overslept and was running late so some of the early trisexuals were out when i arrived and I don't think they appreciated me flying past on the hoods and in baggy shorts :)

    The marshalling was excellent on the roundabout I was at, although one person took "turn right" to mean ride the wrong way around the roundabout...

    Winter is officially here, and the first day of it was spectacularly clear and sunny. Day 2 less so...

    Some dreary nothing stuff done this morning, followed by an afternoon of using a rotary hammer to remove some floor tiles. Ya-hoo. Done about 20% of the total area, so that'll be something to look forward to for the next couple weekends!

    Flogging off a load of old gadgets on a well-known auction site to clear some space and raise some cash for more gadgets.

    Afternoon. Busy sorting through more stuff at my folks house before it goes up for sale: 4 choices - keep, tip, charity, auction. Getting there on the house but the garden needs nuking.

    Estate agents visiting tomorrow.

    Get SG to whip you up some Napalm in his lab.

    don't need a lab, petrol and expanded polystyrene, easy peasy

    but gardening would be more environmentally friendly - tell the estate agents that whoever does the best job of tidying up their section of garden gets to handle the sale, make them work for their money

    Afternoon, speedy 40 miles very humid feels like it needs to rain done some dozing now trying to work out what to burn for dinner.

    Stevo, do what I did, rented a few petrol garden tools an went mad at it for a weekend.

    Remembered I had a crappy electric mower so I did the lawn myself and told him to come back later this month to nuke the back garden as well (which is a proper jungle). Quite therepitic doing the grass on top of all the other censored I sorted through today.

    Run soon, then dinner and drink.
