    Drinking tea, about to eat porridge, then running with the hounds, then running alone, then running with a pal and repeat - if my hip holds up

    Good Moaning,
    It’s fine if a little damp out. Forecast says no rain and light wind so pedal off to WFW shortly for a short shift. Then later who knows maybe a trundle up the hills. More tea first though image

    Glorious here - just been for a walk with TDV and the hound, just stalling before pedalling down to parent's flat over here to collect some post.

    Lots of freshly ploughed fields and theres nothing better than a freshly ploughed field.

    Imagine TDNFNATN in a pair of wellies, fresh labcoat striding through a freshly ploughed field.

    Why, are they disbanding it SG?

    In other news, Cav would love to get a 9th place.

    T minus 71 mins.

    Cat brought us a present of a medium sized rabbit, on account I think, of the Whisker shortage diet decision following a committee meeting about his weight with Shorty and Tricky.
    What a mess. Cleared it up before the girls saw it.

    I guess i'll have to get some Whiskers. The girls will now be wondering why I went against the committee.. Oh bollox.

    Morning. Weekly supermarket adventure complete. May go for a quick ride before others in the household stir. Back for coffee and breakfast then rugby later.

    Guessing it wasn't an intact rabbit and it wasn't a "I'll catch breakfast if you cook it" arrangement?

    FA happening here today. Trying to play radios but can't get anything to work properly.

    I haven't ascertained that yet, he didn't specify.

    Peace reigns. Strifey has taken the hounds out on her own and Stropteen has only just stirred from her pit, which only took a day to turn into one.

    Went running last night and legs still ache, so think I'll try this cycling malarkey next to see if its less painful.

    Coffee and cereal on the go...

    Morning all. Currently chilling whilst brats are still snoring. Mutt walked, shopping shortly then try biking again. Eldest,s GF being smuggled in later without us knowing. Grey and damp out but CBA to complain about it.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    As he's out of his room smuggling in creep in and hide in his wardrobe then jump out and smash all his stuff up with a baseball bat once they are back in.

    that'll a)learn him and b)put a dampener on that particular relationship.

    in parents' flat.

    just me and the S3.

    I had forgotten what silence is like.

    He could stick some top shelf mags and ladies underwear in strategic places in the lads room where they're likely to be found.

    Turbo turboed, jab jabbed, coffee now.

    Think the MF’s approach to learning pesky kids a lesson is spot on, speaking as an educationalist. Our previously housebound injured cat has just gone out for the first time in 4 weeks. He’d better not reinjure himself, the knob.

    Jab jabbed this am too. Our garden is frequented by too many cats and foxes, always leaving turdz laying around. I have some nvidia jetson boards on order though so will be building an autonomous sentry droid. Like in aliens.

    Guy,s as much as I'd like to do some of the suggestions I dont fancy the fallout. Also it could be construed as very strange if I burst out of the wardrobe. I got enough grief for recording the pair of them the first time and playing it back over Alexa when she went out with my OH. Please note I was downstairs not willingly being nosy. I quite like you way she's had a good influence on him, seems a lot mellower and less stressed. Although the last lot of navy entrance paperwork did get to him a bit. Just fitness left to do then see what happens.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Rear wheel with the sticking freehub retrieved from the H-mob. Unable to service it! Freehub on a gravel bike 😳 So a 2nd new wheel ordered under warranty. V odd economics to design in cheaper dodgy hubs worth say £25 the pair trade then have to provide complete replacement wheels for free.

    Still usable, running a bit freer just now, prob due to the excess WD40 sloshing about in it. Not long term viable but... missing the gravelling so will reassemble and use not too far from home. No 100km out 'n' backs on this hub; one can predict when it would seize altogether.

    Catch a bit of MSR in a while, last hour or so. Grey and cold out. Do one north wind.

    We have a couple of autonomous sentries for our garden that seem to keep foxes and cats away. They're called dogs :)

    Dog decided to chase ducks around the garden this arvo. Ducks won.

    Sold a frame set that was too small for me, so winner-winner.

    Filled my raised beds with chicken shyte and new compost. Bit of light forking. Helped my neighbour put stuff in his car. Bought beef. Washed my hands a lot.

    Evening folks,
    Slowish start was had followed by a trip to the opticians, should wear specs when my eyes get tired from looking at the computer screen for too long. Not really a surprise, no other changes so no additional outlay which is good. Might buy some silly rims, that or wheels.
    Then went for a walk in Bushy Park with the trouble. Now relaxing.
    Hope the jabbees don't feel too bad after, glad more of us have been done.

    they avoided the mighty bounding hound so won by not being eaten.
