    Also a tad fuzzy this morning as despite not getting home and having my first drink till just after 21:00 I managed a reasonable amount of ale.

    Today is WFH then sort the camper van ready to go away with friends this weekend.

    Will there be a puddytat down in the riverside meadows? Doubt it, the Wessex beefers rule. The last opportunity for thistle pulling this year, or so I've been told, is today's volunteer sesh. Gonna be a hot one. Strangely relaxing, pulling these thistles, get a bit zen, ken.

    I did, I did, I did taw a puddy tat! My old one in fact. Sitting on the top of Mrs H³'s office in the morning sun. Must be 11 now, not bad for a cat. Still looks in good nick. Buggered off after mini was born and a chap a couple of houses down started feeding her.

    Wfh, lap (lunch at pub) wfh wfh. Yawn.

    What was the swag? A copy of the Telegraph, a can of lilt and a Frys chocolate cream?

    No fuzz here bar some facial fuzz I haven't attacked with the razor.

    blue sky's an warm so far perfect weather for being a hermit an doing IT work. OH is off doing what has been classed as essential work (raiding Morrisions for alcohol) hoping they have my current favourite porter in as I reckon it will be lovely in this promised hot weather (North brewing Co Full Fathom 5) if not theres plenty of others but none with coconut an coffee.

    Anyway attempted a run today appears I have some weirdness on my foot likely a broken toe, but they all still move freely.
    I plan to use this to preclude me from any and all housework obviously I can still ride though.

    I want a can of Lilt now Hoppy

    Curb clipped this morning, distracted by the shorty shorts and skirts this morning. Limited opportunity for the ladies to strip off so far but summer is here! 😃

    Morning All. Sat in the sun having breakfast and lots of coffee.
    New furniture arrives today for newly replastered and decorated bedroom so hopefully back in it this wkend. Night shift spark at work has beat me to it and handed his notice this morning, completely out of the blue and shocked everyone. Interesting times ahead.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I always have a bottle of Lilt in the house. Though I think it's Lilt zero now.

    Not having had lilt in a very long time I venture it would taste the same to me. I have an urge to get some, an add some rum

    Also, can tell its silverstone weekend, helimachoppers galore today

    Tracking down a singular day 2 test for our return to zombie island, odd that everyone wants to sell me day 8 tests as part of the pack which we don't need.

    Rode yesterday, it was shocking following a gym session on the legs.

    Fit new cleats to summer shoes later as well as dog sitting for the weekend.

    Ride over to Pendle Hill tomorrow to cheer MrsHD in a running race/event, ride back and jump in the hot tub.

    Morning All. Busy with stuff including reading through the surveyor's report on the house. I know they're being thorough, but 47 pages...hopefully nothing too expensive is in there.

    Morning folks,
    Busy day of wfh and fending off idiots remotely rather than abusing them in person. The company has confirmed current wfh/wfw arrangements will continue at least until September which seems sensible and suits me.
    47 pages Stevo? Are you buying a palace? They are massively over-cautious as you say. When we bought this place they commented on the ties holding the building together saying they should be checked out. Friend's dad was a retired surveyor, took a quick look and said the building is Victorian, those ties are Victorian and it's obvious nothing has moved in a very long time so don't worry. We've been here 25 years now and it's never been an issue.
    When did HD's sex pond get renamed as a hot tub? I guess it does sound a little less seedy. Well done on the scrote intimidation SG, good for them to know people are watching them. Enjoy the lap H³, and the lunch of course.
    Very glad it's Friday, might go to a pub with the EPO later.

    We got a builder/developer to look over the house and then just got the basic survey and he hadn’t missed any of it. But they had built a house next to our and as my mate pointed out, you only do that if you are happy with the house you are selling!

    Think the name should be hot tub, especially as our hot tub is nearly in a UK port

    Is that after visiting the account manager and seeing which oil/gas/aluminium/fleet of tanks/ammo for African despots he can flog and divert finds through Belize or summat?

    If SG intimidated him, it's probably 'cos he had the screwy looks of a man vexed by weather patterns and the posh thief was 2 foot tall.

    Missed this earlier - did you stay rubber side down after clipping the kerb?

    It was a low curb at slow speed fortunately. Lesson learned.

    Lap, prior to more wfh. A couple of you might recognise the venue.

    Sitting on the top terrace having a cold one whilst bambino and his mate play tennis in the garden with nowt but birdsong and their own laughter to disturb them.

    Bambina, being the teen ager she is, has pull the huuuuge sun ymbrella over her lounger and is sitting in the shade with her headphones on.

    ffs, i should send her to Leicester for a year to live on a council estate.
