    I'm in the clear blue sky camp. Sungod must have done something bad yesterday to be punished by some clouds.

    Working up some motivation to go out and enjoy the weather.

    Back to work, yeah ish. Judging by the interruptions yesterday it’s going to be busy.

    Later is doing the local TT course with some pals at a social distance - might be hard as I don’t know the route

    Thought your local one was the one that started and finished at the Queen's Head?

    Morning folks,
    Today is brought to me by paracetamol and codeine. I think there will be lounging interspersed with bits of wfh.
    Enjoy the sunshine if you have it.

    Morning all, hope you're feeling a bit better V. Blue skys here again, cant decide whereabouts to run or ride. Cannock was well busy so won't be revisited until Covid over. Quite funny seeing all the temp portaloos sat 2m apart social distancing.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Apparently the Shrewsbury tri club have one too

    Might do the queens head one soon, recreate Friday nights when things weren’t so odd

    Easing back into work as we're opening fully on the 1st.
    Cool and sunny today but in the office.
    Sorting our fishing gear tonight as we're off on a day out tomorrow.

    I've just noticed in the notifications that i was mentioned a few days ago with regards to Merc ownership.

    No, never had one, where did you get that idea from? :smile:

    Sungod is spending too much time basking instead of making potions and killing stuff.

    Cloudy here too.

    Shorty is lucky, young oxo,s school gave them laptops at the start of yr10 and have just downloaded all lessons onto to school portal. They started off slowly but have really ramped it up recently. Supposed to be on half term now, not a chance their still chucking extra work at them. He's currently doing 5 hrs work a day. Just hope the teachers keep it up.😇

    Wasn't me Guv, honest - it was that Aussie bloke who said he thought you owned one. Just as well he's wrong as apparently Merc drivers are all wanckers :smile:

    Busy day, spent most of it on calls so far. I need lunch.

    started cloudy-ish, went sunny, went cloudy-ish, saw it coming on the satellite

    it's ok though, have some serious crunching to do, get it out of the way today and then it looks like there will be much sun over the next few days

    There are worse allegations that could be made.

    Made the boy do 60k to his grandmother and back.

    Weather app showing wall to wall sunshine for a week. Nice.

    Garden is a lovely place to sit in the evening sun.

    Aren't you too old for a 3 foot saddle to handlebar drop?

    Should have colour coded the 'spats' Stevo.
