    (Early) 'noon

    Removed cornice from downstairs bathroom, dusty sh!tty job but done.

    Pondering whether an older Cervelo frameset is a good project to build a roadie for occasional use with. Tempting.

    Coffee and chainsaw activity for the rest of the afternoon I think.

    There’s a carbon RS for sale quite cheap, the one with the extra long headtube, from about 2009 which would suit an old bloke with a bad neck.

    Hope you don't mind but I've added a bit Spinner.

    Going to be a long week here. Message from my beautiful assistant this morning saying she's sick so won't be in, wobbled in and got rained on, I'm now at work and the computer system is playing up. Coffee may need a little something stronger adding to it.

    Morning All. Chilling at home with mutley and young oxo, who is disappearing out later with his mates later. No gaming or phones for a change, it will be the big screen and fast food instead. Bit of DIY to finish and a training run and ride later as doing duathlon next month so need to get fit again. I will not be the laterne rouge. Enjoy work peeps.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    If I get it at the right price... Would probably be a bits and pieces build, see how cheap/cool I can do it. :D

    Sunny this morning. I was at an uplift at Innerleithen on Saturday where the forecast was dreadful, turned ot to be sunny all day. Spent yesterday clearing one of the spare rooms to turn it from a bike room into... no idea yet. The OH wants it clear, I might stick a sofa bed and all my guitars in there but I'm worried about the cold. Bikes after work today, need to order parts, might race this weekend

    Afternoon people,

    Good ride in to find the internet at work was up the spout until about 10:30. IT support were struggling with the problem - as they had no internet :) Now caught up with stuff and stuffing my face with a big paella from one of the local food emporiums.

    Now counting down to the annual sunshine holiday this weekend 8)

    very bad form to be falling over in front of a 10 year old & 13 year tbh..........

    anyhow, if you have seen my latest holiday shirt, I don't need to embarass them by falling over ....

  • Ah that explains the gloating and glee when Eng lost the cricket. Welsh. *

    Strangely no comment though when Italy lost to Ireland in the rugby on Saturday and also Wales lost to Eng.
    Surprisingly I thought, given respective teams I thought Wales would win. Be an interesting game this week that's sure but ultimately it's the WC that matters.

    *Yes I do know it's The England and Wales Cricket Board. (ECB). This is meant in a tongue in cheek manner but no doubt will get lost in internet....
