    Morning. Dreary damp and generally John Major over here. May ride some new local trails if not to yucky. OH social distancing taxi service and brat abuse later, youngest going back to school next wk and eldest back at apprentice college. Peace and quiet is on the horizon.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, very dull back to clear lenses in the cycling specs and long sleeves, was a chilly 9c this morning.

    Lots of idiot maintenance today as I'm covering for another manager for the foreseeable. Group video call later with them so that will be tiresome.

    Anyway need to walk the dog shes currently slumped on the bottom step sulking shes not been out yet.

    Looked like it was raining up on the hills this morning but we t out anyway and I think it's just general murkiness.
    For some stupid reason I went up all the steep climbs on my single speed pub bike and now my knees feel like they're about to burst.
    Lazy day now, apart from I need to go on Zwift for a bit to earn that unemployed badge.

    Shorty can't work the title out SG. Mind you, neither can I.
    I think she thinks you are bonkers. I do too.

    Its just tanked down here. Thankfully I'm sheltering in my work pit with a nice hot mug of coffee and a pile of work.

    In good news the recently arrived 'caravan club' has been moved on swiftly from the local park so I don't have to consider sleeping In the Panzer. Apparently they didn't leave tons of rubbish either, whatever next?

    Maybe they weren't so bad and maybe they will be replaced by the next wave of Ethiopians and Sudanese.

    Is it too early for a drink, asking for a friend
