    Slightly later journey in than normal on account of having to pick of lots of dog turds from the garden. In the rain.

    Still, early finish today as I'm headed into the West End to pick up a couple of things I need.

    All quiet on the flatter part of the eastern front. Rudely awoken by an over confident binman trying to back the bin truck up the road, must be new or something.

    Anyway, work, hoping to have some new coffee to try today, been aged in a bourbon barrel so could be very nice, or disgusting we shall see.
    Workshop shenanigans later going to re tension my new wheels an slap some rubber on them.

    Morning. Dropped motor off at stealers for service. Actually not wet and windy here, amazing. Roads soaking of course so may be a turbo session later.
    Currently having coffee and Marmite on toast, yum.

    Bi-weekly visit to chiro, with some new bits for him to mangle. Ouch. Apparently, my hip flexors were about as bad as he's ever seen. Possibly worse.

    Lunch, then the joys of dealing with bank customer service to close an account.

    Two problems with that strategy are that our garden is like a minefield after a couple of days of not picking up and in the dark its lethal. And in all this rain some of them 'melt' and make them really tricky to pick up. Loverly...

    Both are pretty bad if it's somewhere you walk on. Our hounds will only p!$$ and shite on grass for some reason. Keeps the patio clean I suppose but I need my wits about me on the lawn.

    My eldest gets the pleasure most of the time as he wanted the pooch. Not long finished end of shutdown start up pain, no murder deaf kills this time just launched the walkie talky a few times and shouted at lots of muppets. Most of my fitter colleagues kept out of my way today as there censored ups caused me pain. Wkend away with the Mrs,s has been cancelled as she,s bad, apparently i'll go on my own was not a good answer and she's not talking to me. Result :D
