    Happy holidays SG

    Morning. Family bimble with the dog today. Weather looking good, hopefully stays dry as promised.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning

    Enjoy the get away.

    Was planning on making a start on walking Offa's censored today but my leg feels like it's about to fall off.

    Not keen on repointing any more of the patio because it's forecasting showers later.

    Morning, cool an cloudy this morning, also a strong wind which is very unwanted. Felt weird getting a jacket on for August but here we are!

    Enjoy your escape SG none of us are at all jealous!

    Another day interspersed with work. New cleats turned up yesterday so that'll give me something to do.
    The urge to just slide back into bed currently is very strong though.

    The day after... a power cut. Luckily, it was their side of the meter.

    Sod off Sungod.

    Too wet for arson.

    New Corsa tyres arrived today but won't be fitting them because we're off to some farm park in another shire.

    Have a great holiday SG, I'm not remotely jealous as I'm still basking in Tuscany at present.

    sounds good, we can both be not jealous, unlike the others :D

    In this case SOSG seems appropriate :)

    Nice and warm here today, enough for a paleface like me anyway. Couple of boring meetings this afternoon then will do a spot of exercise and get my stuff together for tomorrow's trip to the bleak wastelands of Staines. We have an office there for some godforsaken reason.

    This work thing was a *really* stupid idea.

    Finished building bling wheels for new bike this evening, taped up ready to go. Now just need to fettle brakes and shifting and will be off for a trial run on weekend.

    Lousy news yesterday, bloke I worked with on a couple of big jobs died suddenly. Had been out for a run, got home, collapsed. Fit, healthy, lean, 45 y/o with three teenage kids and terrific missus. An absolute gentleman to boot. Not at all fair. :'(

    Watching it persist down out of my office window and feeling glad that I booked a pool session rather than finish the flagging down the side path.

    Must tie a few loose job ends together now and get excited about my pedals being somewhere between the shop and me rather than sat in a cupboard.

    Can't be as bad as the office or the hotel we frequented in Stevenage owned by the company formerly known as Norwich Union.

    Sorry to hear that WS, it's always the good guys as well. Family bimble ended up an epic bimble so I'm currently suffering a mix between wind and sunburn. Dog and both lads knackered and for once quiet.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
