    The Hermes guy turned up yesterday so today will be spent 3d printing all kinds of rubbish.
    Scorchio isn't forecast here until later this afternoon, but it comes with a northerly breeze so might not be ideal for basking.

    Morning, bright and clear here so may be quick ride at some stage. Drop supplies of at work for tomorrow onwards so I can use summer bike for a change. Stay safe all.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Bit of work then jobs in the garden whilst the wife looks smug

    Running or cycling later - decisions decisions

    Nothing to do but drink tea… forecast says 20°C and feeling like 20°C so must pump up the tyres and venture over the threshold

    rode up and down, had coffee, got nyt, exchanged waves with rozzers on motorbikes

    smidge of cloud has crept over, but satellite images show it should be out of the way by basking time

    Is that the same satellite that you use to spy on Pineapple plantations?

    Meant to be 25C here soon so better get out soon for my daily outdoor allowance with the hounds.

    There's been a plodcopter hovering over the general vicinity of the local park last couple of days, wonder if they are checking for rogue sunbathers BBQs etc? Would have thought that a drone would be cheaper, mind.

    I only get a 1 hour basking allowance as I turn pink if I stay out for longer...

    Wet, windy, cool. Faffed about fixing stuff for a while. Tried new Q rings on trainer bike and somewhat impressed. Seem to be easier on my knees and smooth out my square pedal stroke a little. Result!

    Dinner of beef casserole with a side of spiced cous cous, with toasted almond and pecans plus sultanas sautéed in sweet sherry and balsamic.

    Ey, ey, calm down, calm down.

    Forenoon 45km ride, think i left my legs at home in bed, nice out, lots of people 'exercising' but being rural round these parts they are actually moving.

    Rest of day will be hide in the shade for a bit, followed by dandelion seek-and-destroy, followed by beer(s), followed by wine no doubt. Rinse and repeat.

    Too right and deliberately so. I learnt the painful way when I was younger.

    Built furniture. Got a bit of sun, listened to the hippies have a massive row. Vaffanculo, stronzo, cazzo. All new additions to my Italian. Hippies get quite angry if someone eats their ham. All eleventy million of them all yelling.

    Ate bavette off the barbecue. Changed my mind a bit, grilling is not accurate. Fine for a sausage or a chicken leg that has been pressure cooked first.

    Ride out with the boy tomorrow.
