    Morning Brothers, WFW. Was pedalling in but lack of sleep and motivation called time on that idea. Maybe tomorrow. As to fighting for freedom, I'm married so not a chance.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning. Starting the process of moving baby nibnob out of our room overnight. But baby nibnob's wide awake and Mrs nibnob has pulled her shoulder so can't move him. Doggo confused by the weekend and wondering why I haven't walked him yet. It's ok, didn't want to sleep anyway :s

    Walk hounds, then pack car and head north back home.

    Hopefully the chaps should be close to finishing the main part of the patio as the window people have called to say they are coming on Monday 🙄

    Local pub later

    Remember to clamp the cable in the right place, just in case it hasn't been mentioned yet.

    Failing that, grind the hanger off and turn it into a ss.

    Are they filling Sungod's hole in the woods today?

    It's sunny - yippee. Bit goosed. Shall exploit the easing of LD2 the sequel and go burn some super u/l.
    Might cut grass later.

    It would be much easier to just unbolt the hanger.

    Anyone got some Y03N75000s laying around? :neutral:

    Hey, how do you know my NI number? Oops, did I say type that on t'interweb?

    Lazy start, more coffee, get fettled, get out in the sunshine, stay out until all the bells stop tolling, barbie later methinks.

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed, might do a bit of pottering later. Nothing specific planned other than avoiding Kingston as it will be full of idiots.

    You mean the cable was clamped wrong. Why didn't anyone mention that? 🙄

    Been outdoors being a competent person for the purposes of part P of building regs, think I’ve found a friendly sparks to check it all post installation. If not, I’ll follow my work colleague’s advice (as he’s an ex-installer/electrician) which was “if it doesn’t spark it’s fine”. Big run of SWA cable to feed down the garden, then power off and swap the connections in the shed. Fun.

    Then marking/uploading the last few bits of coursework/sending next week’s bulletin and feeling jealous of all the people who can drink proper beer or wine this evening. Go out for a ride tomorrow I think.

    Maybe we have his Pinno Post Wh0re alter ego back again? :)

    Lie in done, hounds walked. Time for a spot of face feeding then going to get on with a bit of sorting and chucking. Mrs. 666 wants to start in the loft which is where most of the (her) shyte is lurking, but I love a challenge.

    I've been out for a ride this morning.

    The route takes me back through a busyish town and busy it was. Got shouted at by a 'uckwit driving a 'uckwit-mobile because I wasn't using the cycle track.

    This was because I didn't fancy slowing down to a stop every 50meters and not wanting to detour where I didn't need to go. I didn't get into a shouty match, but it does rattle me, more than I like to admit to Mrs Slog


    The older I get, the better I was.

    Swept garden, got new gas bottles, got garden furniture cushions out of the loft. Some friends coming for burned pizza. Though I do have an infra-red temperature gun arriving shortly, so hopefully carbonisation will be less likely.
