    Pouring down here and probably heading your way LD but sungod looks like he might miss out.

    WFH today, not much else.

    Finally broke up my old MTB yesterday. Anyone need some bike bits for a commuter/pub bike?

    If LD and Thistle are at the ends of the weather spectrum, I seem to be dead centre.
    Just like my politics.

    Morning All, off shift so pottering about today. Started nice out but turning cloudy, I will be out punishing myself later for abusing the scales.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Ballysmate, you surmised correctly. You can also call it penance for keeping cakestop busy. We need to wake the dark side up on the mtb bit next.

    Started off sunny and now it's pi$$ing down.
    Sorry to piddle on yer chips Bally but I must constitute the upper spectrum.

    With weather like this, today will be a long haul.

    Sitting in the office with an entire wing of the floor to myself. Traffic not too bad either. There are a few people round the other side so I may drop by in a bit and see if they still recognise me.

    Dentists appointment at lunchtime, wonderful.

    Stevo, have fun at the dentist,s. My recent visit was an eye opener, can't wait till they resume normal service so I can get my tooth sorted. Luckily it's not giving me pain.
    Pinno sorry to upset you, a couple of spots here and the sun's out. Currently sat out in the garden lounge area enjoying mid morning coffee and bagels.

    Sogginess here which is annoying as I was enjoying the sunshine.
  • step83step83 Posts: 4,016
    Morning, (just) cloudy here not overly warm either.

    OH is busy doing stuff while I'm rather bored, processing occurred overnight so I'm at a bit of a loose end, have to be available in case somethings needed but theres nothing on the horizon so to speak till Friday.

    Oh builder mans coming back tomorrow to replace the window as its been delivered going over it with a fine tooth comb before it goes in to make sure it keeps water out this time.

    Very little achieved today at all, somehow. Bunch of bike parts has arrived so that's tomorrow sorted.

    Had a quick link break yesterday while out on a ride. Should I start a thread about it?

    Spent the morning down A&E with 12yr daughter after she fell off her bike on a ride out yesterday afternoon. We think her foot slipped off the pedal and hit the front wheel. Ended up in a tangled heap of arms, legs and spokes. Fortunately a paramedic lived in the house she totalled outside of and a kind family with a van gave a lift home. Lots of pain her arm today but an x-ray and general prodding says all is okay. The bike has two spokes broken up front and shifters knocked out of place. Weird as the road was smooth and no random objects.
    Lunch done and back to work.

    Voiced my opinion it got drowned out with the infighting, maybe I was a bit muffled in my face mask?

    Anyway weathers still meh, get the odd spot of rain for a minute then back to grey cloud. Lovely July isn't it!

    No tooth pain as both teeth have been root canal filled in the past. Just financial pain to come but TBH there wasn't much choice unless I wanted to look like a football hooligan for the rest of my life.

    No masks in the office, we've got so much space here it's unreal. Must be 10 people in an office that can normally take 200-odd. Very peaceful :smile:

    DHL glad your daughters relatively unscathed.
    Step, I just dive in and out and comment as I see fit.
    Stevo you could get away with it by wearing a mask and saving your money.

    Just spotted this post DHL. Ouch - glad she's OK and hope it hasn't put her off.

    I hope it doesn't put her off cycling. Tell her she's got proper street cred now.

    Couldn't she go clipless?

    It's been sun and rain and sun and rain and when it rains, I posted bollox in the Opinion thread.
    I did get the last load of wood in. Garage looks a picture. I'm knackered. I hope I feel a bit better for the last blast on the current Wilier tomorrow.

    Emailed him last night, spoke to 'Neil' first thing and the frame was away by 11am.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day in the office, a few more people but still far fewer than the old days. Back in tomorrow to sort out more stupid.
    Hope daughter's ok as others said DHL. thankfully 12 year olds bounce rather better than 50somethings.
    Still not got my x-ray results.

    Thanks for the kind words. She was lying in the road crying and saying g how sorry she was for breaking the bike! I cant put her in clip less yet as she'll out grow them too quickly. I'll have to find some more grippy pedals though, and a new set of wheels.
  • pinnopinno Posts: 40,256
    What about good ole' fashioned toe clips - without the straps?
