    Might go for a run without the ankle brace to see how it holds up. Later is probably out on the tandem to see if it’s expensive visit to the bike doctors was worth it

    Morning. OH,s taxi service avoiding covid hoards on public transport once her hairdresser has de-fleeced her of 4 months hair growth. Should be enough cut off to make me a couple of decent wigs. Plumbing later amongst other stuff. May even prod a couple of cakestop threads. Dry and cloudy with 10% chance of rain.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Wigs?! Nah - pillows. Perhaps even craft yourself a bespoke saddle.

    Grey again. 3 days till lift off. I'll try and squeeze a pedal in between rain.

    Or be like my mates mum who kept all of the hair from grooming the dogs and made it into a scarf for his dad 😳

    You've already done that quite well as you're now being lectured on face mask usage :)

    Back to the normal work from home routine after yesterday's little venture into The Big Smoke. At least the bloody car battery won't go flat now. Also need a hair cut soon as it's all grown back now.

    I refuse to venture into that face mask thread anymore.

    I'd rather prod frugal luddites who refuse to pay for insurance based on spurious reasons.

    I'm surprised that Oxo mentioning hijabs didn't trigger a few more people.

    Morning.

    WFH. Head's just above water, MH wise.

    I need something to properly look forward to.

    'noon

    Grey here. Forecast rain hasn't shown up.
    Went out early(ish) for a ride to bed in some new pads and got a bit carried away. Good job work isn't busy.

    Robot vacuum threw a wobbly this morning: found some wires to get tangled up in and then wouldn't start going again.
    Hopefully the needy censored is sorted and I'll try it again this afternoon.

    There to busy abusing coopster amongst others. Just dropped back in to the mask and dropped some other stuff down. Suspect I may have to pull the thread or start wearing a disguise. Wonder if my mates assistance / guide dog will have to wear a mask when he goes shopping.

    Don't pull it Oxo, could be quite amusing :smile:

    [Nice gallery btw]

    I'm looking forward to a new frame. Will have an Izoard in L up for a winter hack. It'll fit you and you'll have something to look forward to.

    [Thanks :-) ]

    I saw your new bike thread - that'll be a lovely build. Please share the process, here!

    Oh, I have enough bikes, Pinno. If I get another, it will have to be a gravel or CX bike to replace my winter bike.

    True, but for some strange reason our other halves still insist on expensive haircuts...

    I only weigh 70kg - a #1 cut and I'll look a Belsen inmate.

    My OH finally got her hair done today, she looks like she's been clipped like a sheep. :D Don't you dare grass me up. Plumbing completed.housework done, might even consider early retirement.

    I'm about 75kg and went for a #'half' on the clipper settings. The day after I lost a front tooth and the dentists were all closed. Bloody great for social distancing.

    Busy day in the office, looking at this rather than start something else. Found out my wrist is broken, now waiting on the fracture clinic. Very dull.

    V that sucks, are they putting a pot on or not. Make sure you nail the Muppet more.

    No idea, have to wait for fracture clinic. In our not even remotely expert opinion at work we couldn't decide if they'd leave it as it's already started to heal.
    Think I'll have a beer tonight
  • thistle_thistle_ Posts: 4,642
    Bit of gaffer tape and it'll be right.
    Is the holiday still on?
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 8,864
    Wooden ruler and electrical tape should do it with beer as a painkiller.
