    Morning, dry but misty hope to see some sunshine today, decking to finish off, it may take all day
    Have a good day

    Sunshine has hit Shropshire which made walking the hounds and then running much more pleasant. Absolutely miles ahead of last nights fun bike ride in the rain.

    It’s Friday, later is unsure but ale is a certainty

    Well it's dry right now, overcast, no sign of blue - the forecast looks gloomy. Perhaps a day to check out the new pub rules tis Friday after all

    Morning dry and sunny here for a change. 2 numpties dispatched to the job centre. My job has just got a bit easier, dumb and dumber got caught out falsifying stuff. OOPS and daddy couldn't save him either, he was caught too πŸ€”πŸ€£. PPI just paid out as well so this wk is looking sweet so far. Stay safe out there.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Then you can print off bike parts :)

    Windy but sunny here. However, I see a dark cloud looming. Although, it could be 'cos Tricky has wind. She's taken to eating various crops around the garden. I might have some blackcurrants and carrots left. There were some 'shrooms growing on the front swamp* but they've gone now.

    *Technically lawn but it's been so wet, hence the fungi.

    Picked up my new car yesterday after some scrotes decided to help themselves to mine. Picking up MrsHD's new bike this afternoon.

    Mild hangover as I bumped into a mate at the pub.

    All good so far

    Quite sunny for the moment in my corner of the London burbs, but there are clouds lurking. Plenty to keep me occupied as we're still hoovering up small companies like it's going out of fashion. I expect cider to be involved later.

    Blue sky on mars and all that. Mrs DHL has tacken the sprogs to the park as i'm working. But she did leave the washing for me to hang out so will get some fresh air afterall. Loverly...

    'Noon
    this morning's epic MTB ride was a bit disappointing. The "off road" route was just tarmac covered in sheep tur ds and it was cold/cloudy/drizzly the whole time.
    Got back 5 mins before my webex to find glorious sunshine, 4 Scottish Power trucks outside and the electric off so ended up basking while squinting at the meeting on my phone.

    Tourists are all back now. They were queuing on the main road to get in to the caravan sites :neutral:

    You'll suddenly find so many things to make that you need that you never realise you needed:
