maybe sub-zero

ride, cafes, wfh, lazing, wonder if sticking pins in an ice cube would make the weather warm up

    Morning, sub zero here, dog walked just had breakfast know drinking coffee, busy day for me

    Not sure if that trick would work Sungod, unless you are some sort of Witch Doctor, mind it might be worth giving it a try

    Have a good day

    Heavy frost. Just as well I moved my baby toms 'n' peppers back into the house last night.

    Shoot it’s cold, walked hounds and then ran off road (thought it was safer than icy roads), nice out though



    Work stuff and then build bike rack and check SUP ready for holidays. Need to pack light as dog sitter has got himself a job 🙄

    ciao

    coffee and reading my book, heading into work in a bit as I have a meeting about summat that may well be frustrating, but hey ho....

    Bright out there but 2 degrees so I think I'll sit here a bit longer......

    Brr.

    Not as chilly as deepest Shropshire but still.

    Surely you can find another dog sitter TLW.
    Our 'dog sitter' is called Dawn. She drives a Mercedes Vito van.
    I pay her far too much.
    Jack is spoilt rotten. That's what's wrong with him. Faux Royalty. There are some stripes in his fur but you have to look very closely.

    A solar deity and a person who makes remedies to ward off witchcraft are not the same.

    What is competitive radio?

    Good morning campers!

    Still won’t do exercise today, one more day of recovery. Measuring up for cable etc to do some diy stuff, bit of reading on cognitive load theory, bit of reading not on cognitive load theory, maybe drag the kids out for a bit. Fun day! Did a lot of wfh stuff yesterday, not going to do any today.

    Competitive radio must be something to do with DJs battling stuff out in some way, surely?

    There was frost on cars when I woke up, but not headed out until after work. Decided to work in the lounge for a change given there's nobody else using it. Coffee in progress and numbers being tortured by minions before I review how much pain they have inflicted. The joys of year end...

    Nothing that exciting unfortunately.
    Amateur radio competition: contact as many people from as far away as possible in an hour.
    I managed 7, top score so far is 47.

    BR kicked me out as I posted for the first time today so I'm not prepared to type all of that again.

    In summary, its chuffing cold, my legs are sore and the fecking bathroom still isn't finished.

    Afternoon folks,
    Had to drive to work as I couldn't be arsed with lying in the road to fix the brakes on the kids' car so got a mate to do it. I haven't driven to work in about a month, when I do my car has a heated windscreen. Today it's icy and I had to drive a car without said essential item so had to scrape ice before going anywhere. Talk about first world problems.
    Car done and wallet lightened but both rear wheel cylinders replaced and brakes bled with fresh fluid so I can rest easy now, or a little easier at any rate.
    Now back wfh as the car was done by lunchtime which is handy. Should be pubday but obviously not, at least not this week.
    Shiny new Force1 crankset has been delivered, do I use the 50 tooth it came with or the 42 tooth that is on the bent cranks I have? Just need to finish the frame to chuck it on I suppose, just need a couple more days every weekend.

    Knew I'd forgotten something, if sungod can't make it warmer with some sort of voodoo magic I wonder if the username is just wishful thinking rather than factually correct. Very disappointing if that's the case :(

    checked the notes from last time, just need a priest to rip the still beating hearts from a few sacrificial victims and wave them at the sky

    making a list, they're supposed to be willing, but it can't hurt to try a few others first

    or that scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

    My brother and i would scare our little sis by trying that with her, doing the Thugee chanting as we did so.

    No, not censored work, I'm not fcuking Mary Whitehouse. [email protected] work.

    censored on it. Martin Goodman (Paul Ritter) died. Watched a couple of FND's last night as [email protected] sort of tribute. I haven't seen Chernobyl, but understand he was good in that, and umpteen radio and stage plays. 54. Fifty four.
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 23,682 Lives Here
    Chernobyl is very good, work is sh!t

    Chernobyl is one of the best series I’ve seen.
