    May take vengeance on that noisy peacock that enjoyed making a racket all night.

    Not raining yet, but it’s close. Grab some breakfast at the start and off we go at 6 around a lake and into the hills (ish)

    Honking. Ride cancelled. Zwift then popping off to see the son of an acquaintance who us just about to start a paramedic degree to give him some pointers/advice - ie it isn't that glam my son.....

    Bore da. Not got much planned. Might start removing a fire place to ascertain what repairs are needed to the wall for a new one. Might pop to Aldi to get some packs of rice/grains for lunches this week. Might get some glazing sealant from Screwfix for fixing the glass in the summer house. Could always take the older GTi boy for a haircut. Giro later for a bit. Who knows? Excitement is lacking.

    Morning All. Absolutely gopping out so definitely no ride out. OH wants to go to local garden centre, hopefully it's under cover.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning. Got to wait for missus to finish housework (I offer to help but am not good enough) before cocktails. She’s agreed to dress up for me later so should be a good day.

    Weather could be better so supping a tea until the rain eases off a bit, then it's out with the hounds followed by more sorting and trips to the tip & charity shop. Mrs. 666 has been ringing estate agents to find more places to look at and lining up a couple of handymen to get the place looking shipshape before we put it on sale.

    On the plus side, haven't noticed any side effects from my second jab yesterday, apart from a small bruise on my arm and waking up early. Roll on pub weather :)

    Morning folks,
    Enjoying a traditional slow start, weather looks miserable so little motivation to move. Off to the old dear's later to sort a few bits out with big sis. Can pop round to see H³ if weather improves, will take tools just in case.
    Similar to Stevo I have a slightly bruised feeling arm, other than that no I'll effects. Will check on the 5g signal when I go out.
    Hope TLW is enjoying himself, he is completely mad of course.

    Why is it so bleepin' cold? It's May. I blame Spaffer.

    Bit of lunchtime chauffeuring familial duties then sit on arris watching the spectacularly interesting TT 1st stage. Busy day.

    It'll be that damn Cavani bloke, no hang on Gianni... wait, Ganna, that's it.
    The rest needn't bother.

    Gopping here too. Glad I went yesterday for a pedal.

    Just watched 4 episodes of Project Binky.

    ...and in between started the bread - 80% white, 20% Granary plus a tsp of Sesame seeds.

    My usual mix is 70% wholemeal, 30% white plus seeds assorted, sunflower, pumpkin, linseed, whatever have in cupboard.

    Had a good chat yesterday at the pub sesh with a local microbrewer who was dropping off some casks. Friendly guy. He has a local baker, small scale, who will use some of his residue beer to make sourdough bread. He flogs these off at £4.50 per!

    Landlord then gave our table a loaf plus butter to sample. Lovely, very moreish. Malty taste as well. Gets me thinking to try a beer instead of water in my (non sour) breadmaking, see what flavours can get.

    Not keen on wholemeal TBH.

    Interesting. Let me know how you get on with that. When I make Paneer, I have leftover buttermilk I use for the bread.

    Normally, I use 50% milk, 50% hot water.

    Now here's a thing. While parking up after Dad's taxi duties carried out, I notice this white Tesla whispering around the corner. A white Tesla! D'ye think a certain Cargobike once of this parish is stalking me? After all, with his track record of claimed hard nut exploits I reckon I should be worried.

    If you ran the right way up, it would be easier!

    Congrats. Enjoy the cider.

    Thanks V for the headset bearing assistance and instruction. Always good to see you!

    Bought 2x sram cassettes, 1x sram big ring, 1xcarbon steerer bung thing, 1x saddle. Oops. I only meant to get the bung.

    Should really buy bigger kit.
