    Morning, another bright start to the day, turbo , a couple of jobs to do in the house, catch a few rays later on.
    Have a good day

    Morning, work, and possibly run later as no pedalling today. Maybe even a beer or 3 to celebrate my bro,s birthday, obviously via internet observing social distancing. :(:s:'(
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Work, play, rest is the order of the day.

    Play is undecided, might take the old 20 yr old orange P7 into the woods, then it’s live music from old local in the home bar (prohibition arms / the lock inn - name still undecided)

    @tlw1 Judging by your repeated posts lately the bar should be called the Echo Chamber... 😀

    Raw power always has a place to go...

    Weather app says it's 22 degrees this afternoon. Pretty sure it's still April.

    Working already, any riding will be gentle, probably with kids.

    Garden I expect. I think planters arrive May 12th.

    The Inn to be in?

    Coffee gone.
    Weather's bright.
    I have so many things to chase up and so many decisions to make and still got Shorty's schoolwork to arrange.

    Posts fed and watered, schooling started, wife buggered off to waitrose to meet up with her friend :# starting the boxing in between the bottom of the boiler and the tiled boxing in. Need to make something removable so the filler can be accessed. Probably use magnets. Hope wife brings back beer for the afternoon in the sunshine.

    Posts won't grow - no matter how much water you give them.

    True, that is a bit 'Pulp Fiction'.

    Done a couple of calls and only one scheduled meeting this afternoon, so not too bad (but still a fair bit to do). May do some weights later on.

    On the pub name theme again, how about the Covid Arms or the OPO. Only Pub Open.

    Afternoon folks,
    Another day of wfh, deep joy. Nice and warm out, bloody freezing in my corner of the house. Might go for a wobble later to get some blood flowing. I have to go out tomorrow to pick some bits up from a supplier, very exciting. Other than that another day of lock down that seems much like all the rest of them.

    Seems more of a Crudder name then, is there a ditch around it?

    Would have thought the ditch is full of dead hookers by now?

    Result for me, local chip shops doing a delivery service. perfect excuse I'd say.

    Speaking of martini's I have the ingredients for Mojitos after finding I have a tub of mint going mad in the garden. Huzzah!

    That mint will take over everything if not contained.
