    Morning later start as training. Car being used for a change as legs sore and need a rest. May even get an early finish. Have a good day all.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Morning, looks like it will be a nice day again, cycling first, Main job of the day measuring up for a couple of vertical blinds.
    Have a good day

    Tired after lots of riding (for me) yesterday.
    WFH and avoiding Rona today. Need to go into the big city later for a meeting so might take bike and go for a pedal if it stays nice.

    Headtorch walk and run looks likely.

    Try and enjoy the sun after work, could do with mowing the lawns and catching that ferkin mole

    Office bound to spend the day there, first time in almost exactly 6 months. Waiting for a train as the showers are still not in operation.

    Feels like the censored -end of summer.

    Try not feeding the dogs and keeping them in the garden.

    Got a few more 'Teams' meetings this morning then need to nip into town to do a couple of things. More brekky needed.

  • Driving a desk so I can feed our auditor documents via the magic of the internetz.

    Bailed on the early morning ride as I was tired from yesterdays ride, gym & swim sessions. Hopefully a ride after work though in the sun.

    Onwards to tea...
    Advocate of disc brakes.
  • Yay \o/ no headwinds today.
    Pity it's my shortest day as I call through at various corporate sponsors offices across the East Midlands, for photos to make them feel good about themselves, before riding out into the flat expanses of Lincolnshire later.
    Forecast rain, tumbling temperatures and a return to headwinds tomorrow.
    Lucky me!

    Got in a late afternoon ride, prob last in shorts and short sleeves, weather changing, sun had gone, windy and cloudy. Gonna be a long tough winter. 😢

    Same shyte every year though? It's normally just a bit dark, grey and damp. At least down here in that London. It's why we have red wine and slow cooked beef and dumplings. Mushroom risotto, roast lamb, dauphinois potatoes, roast chicken, belly pork, mash, toad in the hole, and PIE.

    Obviously if you're referring to the non-seasonal unpleasantness of our glorious elected leaders, I can recommend smack and crack.
  • bike ride first thing followed by emails all morning then talking at zoom all afternoon.
    Was hoping for more today from the cv19 blx but no real difference for us. A few kids at daughters school now have it an more each day isolating due to siblings with it.

    Unproductive day. Everyone then needed help with stuff just as I was about to log off.
    Didn't manage a bike ride, and traffic was horrendous driving back.

    Looking forward to a day off tomorrow.

    Nice edit 😂

  • Anyone else stocking up on essentials? Perhaps rebuilding your stockpile?

    Trying to write emails and post at the same time is never a good idea.

    We can lend you our youngest hound, it's an honorary cat as far as catching things goes. Would probably like fresh mole.

    Nothing, it wasn't needed last time. A few people in Cake Stop might need an extra stash of dry pants though :smile:

    Mmmm... restocked the freezer today with winter meat type basics. But still have summer head on. E.g. got superabundance of cherry tomatoes at present, partic Sungold variety which are delicious, grazing them like they are grapes.

    Thing is, with the grot months coming on, not like March April when the last lot of gummint in name only boxxox kicked in. Weather was good. Michael who-needs-experts Gove's random exercise for an hour (aye right) spout, quiet roads. Exercise inc get the bike out is good for mental state. Then it was good.

    6 months of shite weather and shite gummint boxxox to come...? Happy days. Not.
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,069
    Oooh. It lets you say shite.
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,069
    Shite shite shite.

    Winter riding is fine in fleecy tights, or get one o' they turbo trainers. An hour a day keeps the heebies away.

    Re gubmint, like ah says, smack and crack, or like the autocorrect says, anschluss. Where tf that came from, I dunno. Maybe I have a Nazi phone.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day of wfh and nursing, I'm knackered. So I've missed an entire summer of cycling then, ballcocks! Are people panic buying bog roll again? What have they done with thhe 20 year supply they bought in February?

    Massive arseholes need lots of bog roll

    Managed to talk OH out of buying a big chest freezer to store yet more food in case of covageddon as it meant me giving up part of my mancave / workshop. I did suggest getting her a posh shed as a home office so that's being considered. Time will tell what bs happens over the next few months, be it company or guvment giving it out. See starmer is dishing it out, pity people don't remind him of a certain bike riding DJ J,Saville.

    I'd buy a couple of hundred to sell at a profit later if I had the space. Might just buy shares in Andrex as it's more space efficient.
