    Frosty
    Yoga'd
    WFH
    Might fix a mech later

    Didn't realise you'd got instant retirement, you'd think you'd have a week or two to hand over.
    Mind you, our place laid off a load of people and stuck them on gardening leave causing chaos for the rest of us.

    Morning folks,
    First Thursday morning mild hangover of the year is in evidence. Wobble to work beckons. LD's day sounds better

    Early start for me today as stuff is piling up.

    A possible first venture in to publand is on the cards tonight.

    Morning all

    Bright but cold here, coffee being coffee'd. Apols for no chaos causing yesterday, lets just say the jab mad life alternative for 24 hours. Now back up and limping along as per normal.

    Put it this way - if that was a smaller version of COVID I really, really don't want the real thing.

    LD - is this congrats needed? Whats the plan?

    We are now at the rapid disappearance of holiday time 😢 but having a ball so really 😎

    Hounds walked, tea being drank before a run with the wild horses (yesterday’s encounter - only landscape pic I took, the other will look like the horses are breakdancing)



    Think it’s the beach later, tbh not bothered, happy to do whatever the family want

    Second coffee coffee'd. First breakfast had.

    One meeting today, and probably a handful of phone calls with solicitor and estate agent - future neighbour being a bit of a Coopster...

    I'm hoping "tell them to go bollocks" has got the message across.

    Somewhat pleased to open my calendar and discover the presentation I finished yesterday is not due to be given until tomorrow - I am ahead of myself. This does not happen often.

    I want to see horses breakdancing to music from a ghetto blaster on little bits of lino outside Beatties model shop in the Palisades shopping centre over Birmingham New Street Station circa 1983. Niche I know, and unlikely to be captured in Cornwall in 2021, but see what you can manage?

    Ah Beatties, not that particular one, but i used to love that shop.

    There's still a model shop in the town i grew up in. Proper old school shop, boxes of models piled up high, floor to ceiling, with very narrow aisles, shoulders brushing boxes as you walked through. Grumpy old guy in army surplus clothing behind the counter.

    Would spend hours just looking through the piles of boxes just discovering what they had. They also did RC cars/boats/planes etc which i dreamed of owning, but might has well have been the real thing in terms of affordability for me.

    I'm missing something or i'm stupid - why was it flagged?

    I have never heard 'Newport' and 'good' in the same sentence.

    Porker #1 fettling today.
    Bit goosed after yesterday's silly notion to go up Craigcaffie and then over moors the long way round.
    Of course, the sun only popped out proper once I had got home and showered.

    Same here - I'd get a WMPTE child's travel card with a mate, get the train from Cov to New Street, and spend hours in the shop, dreaming of what it would be like to own a Tamiya RC car. Always on my christmas list, but that swine St Nick never brought me one.

    Weathers deceptive, thought it looked nice out, forgot it was frosty this morning, opened the window for some what I though was nice fresh warm air, nope baltic breeze blew in dog shrivelled into a tight ball, OH hissed and hid under a blanket. Needless to say it was closed raipidly.

    Made a few models as a kiddie, the usual spitfires and Lancaster bombers. One of my dads friends gave me a large model of a Sopwith Camel with I hung from the ceiling.

    Being obsessed with guns at that age I made a model 357 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world at the time and would blow your head clean off. Bloody realistic too, as were all my 50 plus hand guns, machine guns and assorted rifles. I was storing them in my parents loft ready to hand down to my son who would have absolutely loved them ( difficult to buy realistic toy guns these days) but my mum binned the lot. Still haven’t forgiven her.

    Don't get me started on that. My mum binned (well took to the jumble sale) all my and my brother's star wars toys. Bloody loads of them, millenium falcon, x-wings, At-At etc I think i had a few rare figures. They weren't boxed or anything, but they were all in really good condition and still worth a fare old bit.

    Due to most people being in here, are these any good for my Trek Domane? (yes I know it says so) Just asking if anyone has used them.
    I normally get my bearings through our engineering supplier but they're struggling with these sizes.
