    Painful walk with the dog has been done and now settling down to see who we are playing in the final.

    Later is fit new tyres to the fun bike and go out on it with the kids, could also do with a haircut and washing the car, most importantly is the local

    Mixed bag. Briefly sunny on dog walk early, then showery and cool. More shrubbery shredding done. Replaced tube and tyre on OH's bike, and a few other miscellaneous jobs ticked off the list.

    Rode down to check out new local subdivision and am very glad we can't see it from home (and vice versa). Will be dreary and meh.

    Morning from the brickworks. Rode in via a few partially flooded roads, managed to stay dry. Walked into a Sparkies nightmare, fitters played with stuff overnight and screwed everything up. 5hrs of hell just sorted. On a high note new rear light ordered for commute bike.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Sorted out the last of the stuff collected from Up North and got a little drive in; now onto a spot of admin guff. The extra hour in bed was pretty welcome, just go to put up with 5 months of darkness now.

    Evening, cold an eurgh, mind you joys of being at home on my own, no one moans about building the bike in doors! Though I did manage to fit the brake hoses continental style which was a bit stupid, shall correct it tomorrow.
    Now burning some Beech and Applewood and enjoying the smell. Going to get some Cherry tree logs in the week for Christmas, though I had more than I do.
    Shall do a proper inventory at some point

    'Subdivision' WS?

    Me did swimming with toots and ended up helping a mate paint his newly built garage. Was supposed to be going on a Porker jolly :roll:

    Weather is... well, weather.

    Yep, back along the road here in a side street was a big empty block, which has been split into 10, all of which are small (for round here), flat, oddly shaped, and come with restrictions in what you can build so will therefore have limited views of anything. They’ll probably sell I assume, but its going to be blah whatever gets built.
