    Morning All, OH covid avoidance tax duties and online shopping for youngest,s imminent return to fulltime education. Swimming trunks and snorkel at the ready with kite ready for later. Won't be riding today, meeting up with a mate later for a session and possibly persuade him to impart some early retirement advice. Can't go to mad as back on shift tomorrow. Enjoy the moistness, apart from SG and Hoppy who are getting burnt to a crisp.

    Gopping unless your a duck in which case your likely loving life right now.

    Dog has been walked, in her rain coat with hood, odd ball she is she hates rain on her ears but will sit in the shower all day if you'd let her, who knows. Anyway hound walked and currently snoozing while wrapped in a towel.

    Ordered a couple of new power tools an now just waiting for this wind to whip up an make things even more miserable.

    28 degrees, light breeze. If i could have just come away without the family and the laptop it would be perfect!

    Probability of me lurking in the shade is high. Though I'm gonna hire me one of they stand up paddle boards later for the lolz and the exercise.

    Back in work after a heavy weekend away with some mates. Not feeling too bad as we had a good 11 hours sleep.

    Back to work but starting to wind down as weekend means another holiday.

    Indoors all day apart from collecting Stropteen from the station tonight so weather is largely irrelevant. The garden needs watering and the pond needs filling so it's saved me a couple of jobs.

    Also off next week which Im kind of looking forward to.

    Afternoon folks,
    It was definitely gopping last night, I'm still stuck in the car and it was perfect conditions for cycling. I wound up beaching the car and walking part way home as they'd shut Kingston Bridge due to the underpasses flooding. Took me an hour and a half to get home, would have been 20 minutes as usual if I could ride a bike.
    In the office and busy again, can't get everything done so I stopped for a cup of tea and a sandwich. Hopefully no problems getting home tonight. Day off Friday for an extra long weekend.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Sounds familiar. Wasn't there someone who used to hang around in The Crudcatcher and had a 335d with awesome amounts of torque? :smile:

    It has to be an estate (for obvious reasons).

    I remember now - Surf-Matt, or Surf-Twatt as he was called in the CC.
