    Morning All, DIY and chilling today after busy set of shifts and also going back to work late last night to sort out some issues before production starts. Must be mad. Weather looking reasonable, dog already walked. Enjoy your wk folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning
    Day off for GFs birthday. We were just about to go out but now blocked in by an ambo going to next door but one. Hopefully she's only fallen over again.

    Morning, was sunny now looks like it'll rain shortly so normal service resumed.

    very soggy weekend of riding rain and wind but 180K done without a single mechanical. Thunderstorms here apparently tomorrow so ill be taking the appropriate measures with a four mete fishing whip poking out the back pack riding to work, see if I can blag some time off.

    Garmin told me I burned 1100 calories on the ride yesterday morning. Then both boys turned up to take us out for Father's day pub lunch.

    This morning I m a pound heavier :(

    Tomatoes and cheese on toast coming right up.
    I am on a health kick and Jammie Dodgers are a no no.

    Tracks on your Merc - thought I had The Panzer?

    Busy day today including biggish corporate acquisitions and minion hunting. A good pedal will take my mind off it later. Also this week I need to find the old stuff we had for Muttley when he was a puppy so we don't end up buying the same censored again.

    Stationary supplier knows that a constant supply of biscuits keeps us happy, like Haribo but betterer.
    Busy day here with the added complication of having to direct the lad as he does the head gasket on the Mini. Might stick a refurb'd head on it if the guides are as worn as I'm expecting. Thankfully we have them in stock. Off to see the old dear again later.

    Reminds me of a thing my English teacher used to say..

    English can be weird. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.

    Stressbag and Stropteen have been getting geared up for our impending new arrival. Here's the little critter looking deceptively cute:

    I did say deceptively cute. They have milk teeth like bloody needles, so I'll have another round of looking like a junkie with puncture marks all over my fore arms and lower legs until he's trained.

    Nice - we keep talking about another hound

    Went to running club, think it was a mistake as my legs are now completely dead. Should have dropped down a few groups but pride is a terrible thing

    Can you give him a bone to gnaw at to try to wear them down a bit? (Never had a dog so don't know if that works)

    We've got a few of those handy but they do like play fighting. And when Muttley has had enough of Gnasher, I'm next in the firing line.

    We'll let you know how it goes - I predict a spot of chaos for a while.

    Young dogs annoy the bejesus out of old dogs. It's comical. For a while.

    That's a large part of the chaos that I'm expecting. When they went to visit the new one last week, he was all over ours trying to start a play fight and when Muttley was having none of it he went straight off and started a scrap with one of his brothers.
