    Morning, dry and much colder that northerly wind is not helping

  • Got organised and put swmbo's washing on last night so it would be done just before she leaves for work so she can peg it out to dry in the sunshine.
    She's gone in to work early. She's not coming back to sort it out.
    The drawer popped open so no detergent went in.
    I'm going to be late now because I've got to sort it out :?

    Roll on Friday.

    Morning All. Play day at Sherwood with mates, suspect it may be muddy in places. Weather promising to be dry and bright but definitely cool. Thistle do we detect and inner domestic goddess with you. Unless it's my running or biking stuff it's instant divorce for touching the washing in our house.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Maybe the French wi-fi is on strike?

    On train into town. More torturing of numbers by new minion until they tell me what I want to hear. Then beer and curry.

    But she doesn't mind you ironing? I prefer the full service approach.

    Morning, car was iced over this morning but it's sunny so I can't complain. I bought 3 pastries on the way in only to find I am the only one in.I now have a very excited Labrador snaffling around my feet. OH left at 2am to go to Barcelona for 1 night for her mum's birthday, I avoided that because I'd be grumpy knowing how good Barcelona is and how boring family gatherings are. Need to find something to do with my 25 days holiday remaining before Christmas though...

    Bikes later, yay!

    Morning, certainly colder this morning, also wore a non water proof jacket, no doubt tempting fate. Today shall be spend perusing the interweb mainly. Work wise only kicks in tomorrow for me when I employ my most humble shouty English to Japanese officials, to be fair they speak better English than I do!

  • Run last night was good, new lights are even better so what way to celebrate? Lets go for another run before work.
    Ibuprofen here we come...

    What to do tonight on a dry calm evening, probably decorate if SWMBO has her way.

    many pics on lamp posts about a lost cat, always saddens me, hope it gets home ok

    meeting went smoother than expected, didn't need to kill anyone, enjoying post-tartare slouch in the gdn lounge, sipping espressos and nibbling madeleines, looks like i may need to nip over to one or more of be/fr/nl next week, fortunately all eurostarable, trainset lifestyle

    "Free" lunch courtesy of advisors. Very acceptable crab linguine, though it could have done with a spot more chilli. Maple syrup parfait with choc ice-cream. No booze - I've decided I can't do lunch-time booze.

    Going to haunt the coffee machine now, so I don't nod off.

    Returned from Sherwood ponds not pines without any injuries, young oxo,s bike weighs twice as much as it did due to build up of censored off the trail. Pretty mincing conditions although nice and sunny. Stevo my Mrs,s won't let me do the ironing anymore as I show hers up. Only time allowed to touch iron is to clean or repair it, that's to often. Her mantra is I do the diy and the garden the house is her domain unless it's a blocked karzee, then that's mine.

    Win-win scenario Oxo . The saying here is 'why have a dog and bark yourself?' :)
