    Morning, that wind feels colder this morning, indoor cycling again, I might possibly crackup with this no venturing out
    Have a good weekend

    Morning all. Work but not a great deal to do, just pottering about doing odd bits and providing site and process security. Glad I didn't ride in today as bloody gusty here at the moment. Stay safe folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    No significant work today. Today’s outdoor activity is a (virtual) run with a pal, we have an agreed time to start and finish, similar terrain and agreed pace - and will call each other and talk censored for the duration

    Later is trying to stop drinking too early and failing

    Wind is blowing from a funny direction on this morning's ride.
    Forecast wasn't good and it looked like I was going to get a soaking but turned out quite nice.
    Might venture up into the attic later to do stuff.

    Slow start as not a lot to do. Got a bit of a supermarket sweep to do including getting some stuff for one of the local buddies. May do a few weights later on and walk the dogs.

    All very exciting...

    Dismantled the second garden shed today, loaded on ute to go to the recycling yard, which I think is still open for business.

    Otherwise very meh.

    Afternoon folks, traditional slow start has been had, now relaxing with not much urgency to do anything. Need to go and see the old dear as had a very frustrating phone call with her having IT problems. Tell her what to do and she doesn’t bloody listen. Other than that pottering will be done.

    Richmond park closed to bikes now, so took my constitutional round central London instead, whistling the Specials all the way round.

    Looks like a nice time to come down and visit London :naughty:

    Had the A400M buzzing around this afternoon which was a nice treat to watch from the window.

    Me fitted cutting deck to mower me. This involved the second stage (after a bit of welding, wire dizzy, rust prevention, car body underseal): fit bearings to spindle, fit to captive plates, fit (sharpened blades), fit deck, wire ignition, drive around lawn on test run. All good. Looong day. Finish tomorrow - bonnet, charging circuit, bits and bobs, cut grass (in comfort).
    Might have another one to do to curry favour with local mechanic so I can borrow an engine hoist and clutch alignment kit for Porker#1.

    Meanwhile, took Tricky's stabilisers off her bike. Helped her get going one or two times and then left her to it. She's off. I' m very proud and she was beaming after being initially, tentative and a bit wobbly. Now she's decided she needs a new bicycle!

    No one's mention it. @sungod. and I was equally surprised @sungod no mention of the spring equinox a week ago.

    Poor form SG, poor form.

    It's like the highlands in the middle of winter.
    Except the scenery is helluva better up there.

    You might get a good deal on hotel rooms?

    Air quality in London must be at pre-industrial levels.
