    Blue sky here, for the moment at least.
    Not that it matters as I put my back out last night doing nothing and it still hurts so I won't be doing much other than wfh.

    Morning, the sun is out with little cloud, cycling soon, lawn needs mowing after all the rain, one of the hedges needs trimming as well, busy day by the looks of it.
    Have a good day

    Morning. Work sadly more of the same. Gentle ride in, cool and dry for a change.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Run with hounds, then drop them off and do some intervals. Then work stuff, later is empty the van of the last of the wood from my parents and hopefully fit a bike ride in

    unexpected sunshine appeared during ride, celebrate with an extra coffee

    Pre work loop is back on again, first time in a while though and 7 minutes slower than Sunday afternoons effort.

    Workey stuff to do followed by an early night, hopefully.

    Been to dentist to get my winning smile back. Tooth stuck back on but dentist of the view that it won't last because of the way it broke off/shape of the broken bit but it will do as a temporary fix. So I'll need an implant: that's going to hurt in more ways than one. Hope the tooth lasts until they can get it done.

    Anyhow, must be lunch time...

    Right now, I need more coffee. Please note the word 'need' rather than 'want'.

    Afternoon folks,
    Another day of wfh, utterly manic with a steady flow of silly questions to interrupt my flow. Just rang a supplier we don't use very often, he told me he'd retired nearly 20 years ago.
    Just has a sausage sarnie for lunch made by the lad, some definite advantages to wfh.

    He's right though, I could see it for myself - not a lot of surface area to bond the two pieces together and vulnerable to bite pressure. And I also got a second opinion which said the same thing. Effectively it's just a temp fix while I get the implant sorted.

    Knackered now. Full physical day with hire van removing all my remaining Stuff (So Much Stuff...) from temporary storage. Now sitting surrounded by boxes in a 'F it' state of mind plus 1st cold beer with the 2nd to hand.

    Why do we accumulate so much stuff...? With the tips back open maybe I should just 'declutter'.

    Or a yard sale :wink:

    What about a (socially distanced) yard give-away? Or is that fly tipping?

    Talking of which, went for a run through the local park and got overtaken by a open backed truck with something about 'block paving' written on the side just driving over the grass. Get round the corner and looks like there's an out of town 'caravan club' paying a visit to the area. Reported to plod - they said they've had a lot of calls about it, unsurprisingly...

    We went into storage twice, once for 12 months whilst we got a house built and once for 4 months after we sold without anywhere to move into. Too mean to pay for removal and storage we didn't need we sorted it out first!

    Similar here a few weeks ago. People were asking why they weren't being fined for breaching lockdown rules when a single homeless guy camping in the park was kicked out and his tent and kit binned by the council :disappointed:
