    WFH and that's about all today.
    I think I did as much exercise yesterday as I did in the whole of last week, and feeling it this morning.

    Morning folks. Awaiting builders to continue with sorting the Somme in the garden. Bit of retail therapy and doing sod all whilst builders in apart from brew for them. Weather hopefully will hold off for a bit for them to get a move on.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Clatty weather here again. Though my new sealskinz 'n' overtrousers arrived yesterday from Merlin (ordered Friday pm, here Monday morning) today may well be my first full gym session since March. Winter, dontcha just lurve it. At least there is La Vuelta.
  • What's that in the distance? I think it's a possible ski season disappearing over the horizon!

    Decorator is still decorating at home, hopefully finished by weekend so that we can rebuild everything.

    Giving the red stuff away in exchange for biscuits this evening.

    In the office today. Weather is pants ,which of course it would be if I have to walk to the dentist and back - 20 mins each way.

    HD - I have a similar concern about the ski season. Missing 2 on the trot will be a bit of a disaster.

    I'm hoping that some miracle will sort the world out and we can get back to some sort of normal so I'm just holding off until the last minute. Nothing booked or going to be booked until I'm sure it can happen.

    Raked up another humongous ute load of green waste, headed for the tip tomorrow. Snuck in a ride for an hour or so this afternoon at least.

    Afternoon folks,
    Rather moist out there. Another day of wfh, apparently using a gun to fix stupid is frowned upon. Feels cold in the house, should I tell the EPO to put a coat on and I go to the office? Supposed to be clearing a load of old picture framing mouldings out from the back of the old dear's garden tomorrow, might have to put that off a few days if the reain persists.
    So, basically same old, same old with minimal variation.

    Ouch. And ooyah. Gym gymed.
    Plus: legs strong after much good weather cycling.
    Minus: upper body muscles, much weaker than was case in March, no gym sessions since. Hurt. And will hurt more tomorrow.
    Plus: get to ogle the gym bunnies again 😎

    La Vuelta time.

    That's our plan as well. We often go late season so that should give us a bit better chance.

    Gym's closed here (not that I'd be going this week anyway). Not much to see but some good banter.

    I'm on fcuking holiday. Not that you'd know it. The fcukers save it up. All the stuff I can't delegate. Which suddenly becomes urgent. Same happened in the summer. [email protected]

    You can delegate anything Hoppy; whether it gets done or not is the question. Some people in our place do those advance warning of holiday things on their email footers: I just ignore people unless they're board directors >:)

    Mine says which days I do and do not work but I think it just makes people arrange meetings on those days to wind you up.
    I like the way twohats is recognised as an email by the forum, but it still shows up in the reply box.

    Email from Mantel saying the Suito is back in stock, with a €100 price increase. Sold out by the time I'd clicked the link. Luckily I got one locally a couple of weeks ago.
