Finally Thursday and forum still alive.

Morning All, forum still alive complete with some dodgy images. Last day on shift with the noddy,s. Will see what damage last night's biblical storms did on way in shortly. Enjoy your day all.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Slight niggle in the groin flared up again from running last night, It's still aching from November when I was in Vegas and got thrown off a bull.

    I think I'll be on the turbo tonight, debating an FTP test followed by a builder for a few weeks but wondering weather to build a bit of extra fitness first or just start tonight?

    Opinions?

    What were you doing to the bull? 😳

    Wet, wet, wet... indoors day. Lots of Stuff I need to get sorted but motivation for such approx. nil. Mess about on t'internet instead, sounds like a plan.

    uneventful at the dentist

    thought it might brighten/dry up, instead it went remarkably dark, but the rain radar shows a gap approaching, may nip out while it's clear

    Woken a couple of times by bucketing rain in the night. At least the fish pond doesn't need to be topped up now. Compensating with coffee currently.

    Morning, I clearly choose the perfect day for new windows and doors its peeing down outside, and partially inside where I'm sans window. updating 30 year old wood frame windows to more modern composites, brilliant fun!

    Anyway faffing with IT stuff as usual, got to go into work later to pick up the car I left there so the fitters could park on something semi level, might have stopped raining then?

    Go with the plan now, otherwise it will slip

    Evening folks,
    Another busy day of WFH but a hefty dose of cba limited my activities. Much answering of stupid questions from people that should know better. I failed to be polite when answering, but then I didn't really try.
    I saw something about riding the bull the other day. Apparently whilst taking your Mrs from behind you whisper another girl's name in her ear then hold on tight.

    Tried to go out before the rain first thing but it didn't happen.

    Did some more hacking if my turbo, but got the magic smoke after wiring something up wrong so gave up and did some zwift. Had a bit of tyre slip on the turbo which covered half the kitchen in blue rubber crumbs :hushed:

    Rain's stopped now, hopefully it'll be drier tomorrow.
