    Morning

    WFH, might squeeze in a bike ride at lunchtime. Nothing planned really.

    Wonder how that would work: do you need to self isolate if someone just hands you your laptop at the airport and you fly straight back out?

    Morning, cooler, blustery, but dry, a bit of diy today radiator to move in hall way, so will more than likely cycling later if it stays fine.

    I donโ€™t blame you Sungod ,there is nothing to look forward to in the uk only autumn and winter.

    Have a good week

    Morning, out walking with youngest and mutley having father and son talk.๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฃ. OH is worried he doesn't seem to have a clue on what to to do after next year's exams. Run or ride later.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, slow start to the day doing work based nonsense. TLW you should have added a shot of something to your ale usually helps (well does me).

    As close as I get to basking. I turn to dust and ashes in direct sunlight. Will go for a dip in a bit. Poached eggs and grilled mushrooms for breakfast.

    You sound like you suffer like me Hoppy, any sign of sun and I turn bright red unless covered in factor 50. Looks nice there I'd just need the lounger in the shade and that would be me sorted. Enjoy.

    Cheers Oxo. My lower arms, face and lower legs go brownish - cyclist tan. Rest of me burns, probably due to lack of practice. Very happy with a book on a lounger under a tree though. The sea is very refreshing.

    Sounds exactly like me. Probably why I prefer skiing holidays as you only have to bother about stopping your face burning.

    Another day on the hamster wheel. Think I'll eat out to help out for lunch, a full English beckons :smile:

    Tried it, or just reckon you'd be censored Oxo? Worth a pop if only for the apres ski.

    Sunny start that soon deteriorated into more showers. Slack day WFH. Went out and picked up an old bike for fun project to mess about with, makes a nice round 10 in the shed.

    Ah, OK. You can still do that while the rest go skiing :)

    Speaking of which I need some exercise after pigging out to help out. Large full English with an extra sausage washed down with two pots of tea. Buuurp.
