    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Run, work, encourage eldest to run the 5k he has been nominated for. Probably another BBQ (with wood as local shop has run out of charcoal)

    Work, eat, exercise, drink, repeat. Not far off getting irritating auditors off our backs.

    I hope nurse has a 2m long needle.

    Toots schooling today. Coffee went down without touching the sides.
    Although a cool easterly, the weather is stunning (again). Will find different walk location today.

    ...and we'll see what the postman brings. Some stuff is coming through rapidly, others via Mongolia.

    Discovered the UHT in the government food parcel is passable for hot chocolate and cappuccino, so will work my way through that.

    We don't want the food parcels, but they are ridiculously hard to cancel, once you get on the list.

    WFH, may go for a run.

    Puppy has managed to dig a hole under the fence we had put up last summer, so more puppy proofing required. I hope B&Q is open.

    Morning, chilly an windy but sky is as blue as a smurfs backside so cant win.

    Plan of the day is to wander round the house an stare at things, not totally sure what else, may take a walk round the woods, dam hill up theres tough still.
    Anyway coffee is peculating away I'd sit out on the patio but its windy an cold, so log burner it is.

    May actually attempt some turbo activity later.

    Not quite Pinno, but she was well protected, face shield, mask , and a plasticity overall, and gloves
    She would not stop for a cuppa and a chat though

    Breezy, and patchy cloud/sun/cloud/sun/cloud/sun.... you get the idea.

    Took new bike for my longest ride in over 2 years. Thought I was doing ok until headwind. Still a nice thing though.

    Tea, bagel, yogurt, work. Alcoholic delivery from North Yorkshire just arrived - might enjoy a glass on the balcony.

    Afternoon folks,
    A busy day of wfh which I should be grateful for I guess. Amazing how cold this corner of the house is, I just went outside and it's really quite nice in the sun.
    Everything carrying on much the same as it does in this new normal we are operating under.
    Going to take a walk this evening I think, very exciting.

    Hey Ben6899, hope you're OK. A couple of Old Peculiers on a balcony sounds lovely.

    Bit of work for me, followed by a quick blat down to prime stockbroker belt Surrey and back. Lovely on the way down, stopped short of the hills, then a bit of a grind into a what felt like a block headwind on the way back.

    Shower, big bowl of pasta, glass of something sunny from southern France, settle down to a film with mini.

    Week off so today i have been mostly boxing in pipework and tilling. I was stupid enough to get supplies a week or so in advance of lockdown so I could get all those jobs done. What a fwacking idiot, why do I do it to myself? I could have been slacking off with a G&T.

    There is a particularly exposed section on my current 1h exercise std loop, come to top of this hill then it's flat for several km with no hedges, just open fields. Strong cross headwind today, thought I heard the echelon klaxon sound, started thinking 'Where's Luke Rowe when you need him?' then came back to the reality of a solo ride. Grind it out man.

  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,054
    Went in a different direction, opened a jurançon sec, to go with the film.

    Well rescued! OP going down well. Not sure it's made for matching with sea bream in rose harrisa, but it works!

    I am basically a very BTEC Luke Rowe, big lad, reasonable engine, OK on the flat and short hills, competitive. I don't mind a headwind too much. It's free training.

    Rose harissa is versatile. Not sure I'd go so far as old peculier versatile, but it is an excellent ingredient.

    Decided (unanimously) that school work is sometimes boring. TBH, I had a creative black hole.

    So Shorty and i made a cottage.

    Lovely cottage. Is that a massive chicken out front?
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,054
    Dog? Platypus?

    cute cottage, a tabby sunning outside would be perfect

    Aaah - a Tabby. What a good idea. Must fit a cat flap. That's supposed to be a 'self portrait' - bad camera angle.

    Let me see...



    Not bad for a 7 year old.
