    Walk hounds and then a quick run before work. Later is fun bike and as it’s with a mate I assume it will end up in a pub garden

    Morning. Back to the grindstone. Damp as usual. Rumour mill running wild here as everywhere slowing down, so may end up mothballed or worse. May be time to review the options and CV. Strange times.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning

    Turned damp now here. Looked reasonable early on but couldn't be bothered getting up and going out. Advantages of having a dog I guess.

    Similar here but without the rumours.
    Not much to do at the moment, but that's partly because of the disruption caused by furloughing half the company then bringing them all back.

    All back here, just no stocking ground as builders not starting new stuff at the moment. Strange times all round.

    Neighbour just been out into his garden to find out what was burning.

    Seems okay so far weather wise. One or two chores to do then pedal.

    You don't want a car that cramps your lifestyle. If you need any top tips on practical performance cars just let me know :)

    Morning, skys a lovely shade of naval grey and totally featureless so summers gone I reckon.
    Mainly doing teams and webex meetings today which is very dull may liven up one of the meetings by not turning up.

    Anyway back to meetings and pretending to be interested.

    Oh is a passat estate classed as a dogging wagon or a dog transporting wagon?

    Both, just not at the same time...

    I suppose Pinno could go for some midget dogging in his car.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day here, went to get the wrist x-rayed again as Dr said some scaphoid breaks don't show initially. Not sure if it being broken would be better, 6 weeks along I feel it would at least give a bit of direction.
    Then had to visit the old dear as she was upset because she's been told not to travel until she sees a cardiologist because of her ECG results.
    All of this whilst supposedly WFH.
    Bloody knackered now.

    Ouch. Have they stuck your wrist in a cast or something now V?

    No, waiting for it to be looked at and hopefully get results tomorrow or Monday. Still 'kin painful and very limited movement. Not keen on having a cast as driving to Italy and having a pool in 2 weeks. But, I'd rather have my wrist fixed.
  • thistle_thistle_ Posts: 4,619
    When I did mine it was blatantly obvious on the first x-ray, but I couldn't make a fist either. It didn't hurt, I just couldn't physically do it with the break.
    Hope they figure it out anyway. I think a motability conversion takes longer than 2 weeks.

    Still raining here. Not sure tomorrow's forecast scorchio is going to materialise.

    Fair point. Could also restrict other activities, depending on which wrist it is.

    I did on one, everyone complained how loud my turbo was, justified as it is really noisy an short of a throat mic I doubt I can solve it.

    I normally mute myself and slow down pedalling when I have to speak.
    Accidentally unmuted myself while going for a sprint the other day but luckily it was during a break. The couple of people still on the call did look a bit confused.

    Did they think you had 'company'?
