    Should be doing a hybrid commute but need fleet to check my car :(

    Could have done with a pedal after last nights beer, will probably be the same tomorrow as the rugrats are staying at my parents again
  • Morning. Weary today after hours in the water yesterday. Leg still sore so not sure I'll cope with a ride but would like to.
    Bit cloudy but forecast is sun which is good as BBQ this afternoon is on the plan.

    You know autumn is around the corner when BBC website has it's Strictly lineup advertised every day....

    Hybrid commute completed cars in car place having car things done to it (sporty suspension fitting)

    likely a quiet day again so not sure what will occur bar trying not to fall asleep.

    Morning Slackers, out with mutt and family again and hopefully time for a pedal and run later. Need to get commuting bike ready for going back to work tomorrow.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Same old same old, may attempt to work out how much of a loss (on paper) PP #'s 3 & 4 are making to report to the tax man.

  • Ahhh sun is out! Coffee in garden watching a yacht sail past. Pleasant.

    Don't you think the Ashes have come too soon after the Worlds?
    The Aussies have had a longer break and no celebratory hangover to deal with :D
    I wouldn't worry; the Welsh were never that good at cricket.

    Looks dull and gloomy out there. Managed to wash the car (pre-fitted with sporty suspension at the factory).

    It's Shorty's birthday today. Say 'Happy Birthday Shorty'. Can you wangle another cat pic SG? Cheers, ta.

    Laters.

    As for cricket, maybe a WC hangover but the loss of Anderson was key plus no team has yet got a solution to getting Smith out early so no excuses best team won. Roll on Lords.

    Happy birthday Shorty.

    The house is looking a bit bare now all the pictures are down off the walls. More trips to tip and charity shop done; next time it's a trip to the auctioneers for the stuff that's worth a few quid and the charity house clearance people visiting for the stuff that's not. Nearly there - just need the solicitors to pull their finger out.

    Long drive South soon.

    Happy birthday Shorty.
    Not so happy me, I've still got over 250 unread emails and I've already dealt with rather more than that. Think I'm just going to dump them in another folder and ignore them, anything important will be chased up and they should have read my out of office message anyway.
    Lad and a bunch of his friends were supposed to be at Boardmasters, found out it was cancelled when they got to Victoria last night. They've gone down anyway as they'd paid for the travel and I'm sure they'll find enough to keep them occupied, at least they got into a hostel so any bad weather won't affect them too much.
    Very glad it's Wednesday so I'll be off to the pub later.
    Worry? Nah, just like to take the wee-wee as it winds him up a treat. :lol:
    I don't think the person getting wound up by this is one of the MFs.

    HAPPY CAKE DAY SHORTY!

    Still living the dream. :roll:

    Going to a local brewery tonight for a "tasting" with some of the other dads from Mini's class. Think I will ride my bike there, saves on Uber costs.

    Wimbledon Brewery. Though it seems to be in Colliers Wood.
    I've had a few of their beers before.

    Don't forget to post up Strava rides of these Giro climbs you're going to do Walter. Or is it just another fantasy, you know like the Everesting Hardknott?

    Walter Mitty

    MF = Walter Mitty Now that's going to stick :lol::lol::lol:
  • Back from a small surf but fun teaching eldest. BBQ lit and San Miguel on the go. Nice.

    Means nothing unless you tell us what the Bilstein's were fitted to.
