    Hola

    Ride, run, ride this morning if all goes to plan.
    Hopefully when I get back bearings will have arrived for fitting.

    Morning, Parkrun chasing yummy mummies in the mud. It's a Xmas theme today so expecting cheeky elves and Santa again. OH not coming as to muddy for her. Last night's drink with eldest was cut short when local karaoke queen ( not ) started trying to sing. Place was rammed with folks having xmas drinks after work. Prezzie drops later.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Paddling in places at our parkrun.
    Not really yummy mummies here, seem to see more and more people from the cycling club each time I go.

    Afternoon, spend the day sawing timber likely annoying the neighbours but me, shelves on a cheapo bench I bought went mouldy (untreated MDF) so chopped up some 12mm thick ply which is now drying after varnishing.
    Got to chop a small channel from the garden back, with all this rain its starting to flood the patio, channel will do till better weather an ill do a french drain or similar.

    Logistics girly is meeting el parento later so this should be amusing, urgh.

    Thistle, over 600 runners so law of averages says a good percentage are worth following or perving over. Just don't tell them or my OH. 1 ex OH is enough :D

    Maybe I should put some posts on a local Mumsnet/Facebook group advertising it and see if things improve.

    Mad busy day getting stuff done and being knackered is not a good combination. Stropteen is out in Shoreditch with her mates because they heard it's trendy. Unfortunately this means Dads taxi will get a call to the train station later...

    This is moving a bit quick.

    Had a lovely Jolly in Porker#2 to a distant town far, far away to complete my Xmas shopping.
    And in the process, met a guy driving a 1970 silver 300 sel (one of the rare 6.3l's). Had a good chat with him. Up from London - he's a mechanic for a Classic Ferrari, Lambo, Merc, AM outfit.

    Merry Christmas VTech wherever you are...

    He definitely wasn't. Vtech would have no conception about the build quality and historical significance of that car.
    He knew his stuff.
