    'Ning

    Just woke up from one of those bizarre dreams:
    Heard the sound of a bike on a turbo so went to investigate and found @Matthewfalle in an 8 bit platform computer game smashing everything up with a comedy axe.
    He comes across Colin Furze and chops him, so he comes back as a zombie with his backpack flamethrower and starts chasing MF setting everything on fire.
    Then he gets to a level with @pinno and I woke up so don't know what happened next (presumably he was building a giant Lego contraption to chuck the burning debris over someone's fence).

    I think I've been spending too much time on Zwift :neutral:

    Have a good day, apparently it's icy outside so best put some grit down before the mrs slips and I get the blame again.

    Ciao

    T - it wasn’t a dream: P and I are currently in your kitchen, drinking your coffee. We left the by the back door out of the way. Apologies about the mess, we’ll clear it up later.

    Talking of weird dreams, MF dreamt last night that he was about to take his history gcse and had realized that he hadn’t done any revision of the Christmas hols and was now stuffed for the exam itself itself - now feeling very panicky.

    Aside from that, it’s raining and cold, again. Coffee has just bubbled, Hound is curled up nicely next to me on the couch, all seems well, so far.....

    Morning, white too with frost dawn came and it was very red so either somethings on fire or bad weathers due.

    Anyway set fire to some wood in the enclosed metal box. An coffee doing similar but with more hot water and less fire.

    Another day of boredom to commence.

    In terms of dog location mine is capsized in from of the metal box of burning wood, clearly not worn out from her walk her tail starts wagging like mad when you go near her.

    Morning, dog to walk or skate either possible at the minute. Bit of retail therapy and taking festive decorations down. Badger eldest lad to get up before lunch and take car for some new tyres.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Step has a Pi$$rat©. Sounds like much bother.
    Audi - dull.
    Westfield - fun but draughty.

    Neither. You already know what my suggestion is going to be :)

    I can never seem to remember what I dream about these days. Although I did have a couple of those 'hadn't done any revision for an exam' type dreams a while back.

    Adminny day beckons, including taking the hounds to be sheared.

    Yeah it is highly dull if not a reliable censored , reminded me, found the battery drain source. Turns out the Canbus thought the stereo was on. Only found out when I plugged the car in to code a spare key.
    Car starts fine now. My own fault I guess for fitting a stereo with semi modern features like a CD player, or is that considered retro now?

    Either way it works now. an no snow here, weather warnings neatly align around us but not on us which is censored .

    Oh Audi wise, bin the S4 for an RS6 Avant a 500+BHP V8 in an estate makes things fun.

    Skoda Octavia estate, a pragmatist wet dream. Spend the money you’ll save on beer.

    At my old from the company cat list. Loads of impractical diesel saloons (high BIK) with pretty much no estates or even saloons where you could fold the seats to get a bit of extra room.

    They had "green" cars in every band except mine and you couldn't trade up or down.

    The only estate they did have in my band was a bloody RS4 Avant which was obviously no good from a BIK pov either..

    Morning folks,
    Another slowish start has been enjoyed. Need to do something today, not sure what though. Back is playing up so that may limit choices.
    I rarely remember dreams, if I do it's because I wake up in the middle of them. Usually forget by morning.
    TLW, get an RS4 and a Westfield

    Even better plan. Go fast or go home.

    Fresh ride but nothing MF can't handle, just one cold big toe. Need to clean the bike though as all muddy.

    This was the view today

    Sarah Storey was on Zwift earlier but I didn't manage to get a picture.
    I think she was trying to keep a low profile but someone did a "HEY DAME SARAH STOREY IN DA HOUSE" on the game chat which put an end to that.

    Not much colour in Wales.

    Hang on, shouldn't it be green, all green, nothing but green?
    (bar the odd sheep).

    Grey and bleak is how I picture it at this time of year.
    Good pic by one of the MFs though

    Must've been taken by the one in charge of black/grey. The ones in charge of red/green/blue stayed at home.

    It’s just wet. Even the green looks sad.

    No - he’s in your loft with Pinno deciding what to smash up next with their comedy axe

    Good job that one moved out of my garage, not enough room to swing a cat in there at the moment
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 9,245
    Oh no, that one is still in there hibernating. He's normally in charge of diplomacy but as we can see from CBGate he didn't have a chance to do his job.

    At the moment? I’m sure your garage was a mess 10 years ago?

    Very civilised in here today. Is no one going to kick off?
