    Morning, chill out drop OH at work and walk dog. No idea of weather as still chilling in pit contemplating getting up shortly.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning
    Damp and horrible outside again. WFH and a bit of yoga at lunchtime I think.

    Gym's reopened today but membership has lapsed and I'm in two minds about whether to renew it.

    Don't look too bad outside tbh. November after all.
    Socially distanced ride planned for 9.30, after which, I plan to spend most of the day sat on my @rse.

    PS I wonder if there is a forumite with the name rse? He would be thinking he was popular.

    Fog has now descended.
    Pah!
    Definitely a sit on your @rse day.

    Morning, foggy too here in fact it's been foggy all weekend never fully lifted.



    Little photo from a wander earlier with the dog, this is other side of the wood so me but still damp an fog rolling in from both sides.

    Anyway going to Do some faffing my match seems to have gone fast so needs adjusting that'll keep me busy this morning.

    Also re the title, is this what they said when they loaded up Enola Gay?

    Pop round if you want birthday cakes 😉

    Mmmmm, lots of running related gifts and I’m struggling to even walk 😢

    Great pic step 👍 Hard to beat the moody sky and colours this time of year.

    Happy birthday! 🥳🥳🎂

    No cake for me though. Pinno’s 63kg has shamed me into a two week diet. How is that even possible? Unless he’s thumbelina?

    Happy birthday TLW, will give the cake a miss. Think I've eaten to many already.

    Pinno has daily infusions of helium to keep his weight down. I'm stubbornly stuck at 80Kg though my muscle/cake ratio is slipping more toward cake. All these people getting in shape during lockdown clearly don't have any work to do.

    Happy Birthday TLW

    Reminds me, mince pie season is soon upon us...
  • Excellent day, even an early-ish start for a change. Finished building a frame to be used as water tank support, couple of coffees out in the sun then a few hours trundling about on a bike this afternoon. Gave a large brown snake plenty of space as it crossed the gravel track.

    Ice cream and first fresh mango of the season after dinner - still lacking in flavour as expected, but a promising start....

    Mango hmmm....

    I eat like a bloody shire horse. I'm always busy.

    Send me some cake TLW and have a good one.

    Does my 88 make you feel better? Packed on 4kg since the daily cycle commute stopped. I have still been riding, but nowhere near as much.

    Work stuff today. Might try and fit in 45 mins on bike.

    Send me all the unwanted cake. I'm around 82 ish (kg not years), by no means all muscle and sinew but don't give a monkeys.

    It does thank you 🙏 I’m staving myself all day just so I can enjoy the beef bourguignon, buttery mash, garlic mushrooms, Yorkshire pudding and sauerkraut (don’t ask) later.

    And as step pointed out mince pie season is upon us, the brandy cream is already on the shelves and if we don’t shift the excess now we’re fooked. And I say “we” because I will drag you all down with me.

    Happy Birthday matey. Edging closer to Hawaii :)

    Morning spent on boring calls but had camera and mic off so could get on with some work in the meantime. I'm hungry now.

    Good job that Richard van Lesbian isn't a forumite. Could only post as Van so it seems.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day of wfw involving the usual fending off of idiots. Weather has been more than a little moist.
    Happy birthday TLW, send some cake this way if there is any left. I was 81 kg on the pallet scales at work, fully dressed as stripping off in the warehouse would have been cold enough to result in some serious shrinkage. Thankfully I'm not a shortarse so that's a healthy weight, hopefully I won't have to start wearing heels.
  • thistle_thistle_ Posts: 6,180
    87 at the start of summer, starkers, technically at work too as I'm WFH.
    I suspect it's more than that now :disappointed:
