    Morning, some lieing toads about🙄. Tad milder 😲, screen scraper around me. Luckily had sense to get the winter gear out for pedal into work. Only working till Wednesday, sadly stuck with the noddy squad😖.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Brrr, a bit nippy. Now I know what what it's like up north... and I dont like it. Still, at least its sunny. Will cycle in to work after a few zoom meetings. Hopefully it will be warmer by then.

    More work, quick trip down to the shop to get supplies and pack the car later on. There must be some competition on to see how much stuff you can take to Uni as Stropteen is doing her best to win it. Lucky I bought that roofbox...

    first day back after >2weeks away. Having work-life balance discussions with my manager; this break has been eye opening with regards to my MH. It's the first time I've had a restful fortnight (let's be honest, "normal" holidays with sight seeing etc can be tiring) in years and although I don't expect to enter retirement just yet, I think I can make improvements to make myself happy/happier.

    Got most of the junk packed in the car, tank brimmed and will do the roof box tomorrow morning. Time for a drink.

    our own correspondent reports that we're now surrounded by the plague, only the thames remains open to ferry pussycats, women and children through to the richmond maquisards

    though soon the zombie hordes will be at the borders, with the port lodged in harrods' vaults, our heroic resistance shall lead the fight back from the derry & toms roof garden, then advance to crush them in glorious victory

    Evening folks, busy day of wfhao. This was followed by a slow run then takeaway pizzas. Now slobbing on the couch.
    River bike now has pedals and is ready for its next adventure. I think it belongs in the river, it's awful. A single speed shopper with a triple on the front. It's a gem.

    Similar situation here.
    I knew it was dodgy to the east but now apparently the north and west is possibly getting a local lockdown all of a sudden.

    That means the only safe passage is via....Shropshire.

    I wish, I'm embarrassed to be giving it away. Going to a charity that helps homeless get back on their feet, having a bike makes it easier to get somewhere to work.
