    Morning, no sign of wet weather at the moment, although it feels colder, turbo again ,I might trim the hedges again if it stays fine.
    Have a good weekend

    Wet weather not reached here yet which is good as I’m going for a long(ish) run.

    Then a few jobs, unfortunately not chainsaw ones as mine is away having some TLC

    Later is a few drinks in the home bar followed by a film with the rugrats

    Morning, wet here hound was all set to go outside till she clocked it. She's going out in it anyway just doesn't expect it.

    First is important bacon goodness.

    Going to get the titanium bike down give it a quick check up seem to recall the chainrings being a little marginal.
    Later shall be wine and roast chicken.

    Windy morning, but nice walking back along the beach in the sun. Coffee.

    Fettled new frame a bit more, tweaked a few things. It’s rather fun to ride. Need to get a front derailleur, or smaller chainring.




    Afternoon was mainly chainsaw activity again.

    Gloomygrey, though weather app predicts sunshine from Monday. Heel kicking, dog walking. Maybe a ride up and down some of my local 10-15% lungbursters.

    That's quite smart WS. Better than some of your other bits of scaffolding.

    Dunno what me doing me. But will involve a walk. Just wondering what the furthest route to the beach would be...

    Bit chilly here. We're borderline between sunny up Norf and cloudy/wet daan saaf.

    It's stopped being soggy here so off out with the hounds shortly. Porridge and coffee consumed.

    Putting together my new swivel chair later so I can sit comfortably while I'm stroking my long haired white cat. Stropteen is due to cut my hair off with the clippers later so all I need now is a monocle and a grey tunic.

    The hounds will also get clipped once we've had the dog clippers delivered so one of them can pretend to be Mini-Me :)

    Yeah must do that some day. Need to get a few more photos of the current collection.

    I could post links to my preferred choices of objectification. You lot may find them... bewildering.

    Shizer! Sorry to hear that TLW, condolences to all. Never a good time but particularly hard at the moment I should think.
