    Short on time today and it’s been a good few days since small hound has been limping so they are running this morning.

    Some point today is drop the van of at a local garage for a once over so might be able to sneak another run in when collecting

    Morning WFW. Early finish hopefully.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Was sunny, now dull and cloudy. Doesn't look like I'll be WFGarden this morning.
    Went out for a run, felt terrible. The llamas in the park had been replaced with sheep.
    Gym later if I don't fall asleep and miss my slot like yesterday.

    Just accepted an offer on our house. Their third offer sealed it for us and they're chain free so good news. Better get our skates on and find somewhere to buy...

    I don't fancy the maintenance on a mansion up there :) We're looking around the North Downs and that sort of area.

    Morning folks,
    Another day of wfh, the commmute down the stairs passed without incident. I was a little concerned as today is the anniversary of breaking my wrist. Chased up the solicitors to celebrate, they are waiting on medical records from the hospital. House warming at 666 Towers soon then. We'll all have been fully jabbed by then I suspect. Glad HD doesn't need a hashtag starting then, was beginning to worry. Out for a ruby tonight to celebrate all the birthdays over the last year that couldn't be celebrated with a ruby. The EPO thinks I should sleep in the lad's room tonight for some reason.

    You'll never commute by bike from there. It's just an excuse to drive ze panzer on a daily basis.

    Nippy. Sun is coming and going. Will pedal.

    Had to shift a bull from the garden early. The fcuker left holes everywhere.
    Farmer boy dutch bloke got upset previously when the tractor that came to do my hedges left ruts in the soft ground (I sorted them, took a while - with use of a heavy friend).
    I now have bargaining chip.

    Phone call from company "Empty IBC's haven't been lifted".
    Me: "They do it whenever they come in else I have to pay transport" [i've repeated this ad nauseum].

    Phone call to transport company:
    "Hello mate, this is just a call to say that I called you to moan at you for not lifting the IBC's, which you know doesn't bother me - take your time [chat about the general state of the world chucked in]"

    Phone call back to company bloke:
    "I called them and said that this was totally unacceptable and in the future I expect better service and better communication."

    Company bloke happy.

    Bollox, rumbled :smiley:

    Actually I will ride in once or twice a week, its just over 20 miles each way...as long as we stay on the right side of the North Downs ridge, which is a censored climb.

    Po = Parking officers?

    Anyway grey in Heckshire no rain by way of a change the curse of the Geese has been lifted if only for a short time.
    Plinking yesterday went well, no one died I managed to get decent groupings. Turns out the range is easily riding distance but I doubt if I bought an air rifle it would be sensible to pedal down there with a rifle bag, shifty looks etc.

    Anyway doing some freelance stuff today much faffing with a camera and typing today.

    Question is MF what flavour pot noddle is it...

    that would be cool - I could screech up in the Anaconda and roll over the bonnet before twisting my bad knee and limping off pretending it doesn't hurt.

    Beef and tomato - not the classic curry, but it was free and is hitting the spot.

    Thought it was one of the tellytubbies. An armed tellytubby turning up at your door would be interesting.

    At least no one would mess with you.
    Although, being stopped by the police every 500 yds might be a PITA.
