    Hounds, toll road, work stuff, then leave my car at work and cycle over to see my dad and some of his mates that are staying near Birmingham for the classic car show.

    Should be a giggle and a better commute on Friday

    Feeling hungover like sg and cc but due to some lurgy not alcohol.
    WFH in case it's anything nasty, although test says it's not.

    Tired, really really bored of fighting the bambini every morning to get them out of the front door to get to school.

    Today I will get The Booster. Hope the new microchip does more than the previous, couldn't see a difference last time. Back via a mope round a garden centre to see if specific plants a) in stock and b) not stupidly expensive, then it's do nothing day.

    The more you push...
    It entirely depends on the mood they are in.
    It's Thursday and usually tricky gets weary by the end of the week. Today she's A1.
    Shorty can be up with the Lark or lingering.

    Morning,

    WFH again, starting in the kitchen while food and tea are consumed then down to the man cave. Managed not to wake the hounds which is good as they make lots of noise if woken up by someone wandering about in the morning.

    WFH, but it's not windy, so I'm going out on the iron at some point.

    Polyacrylonitrile (PAN), also known as polyvinyl cyanide and Creslan 61, is a synthetic, semicrystalline organic polymer resin, with the linear formula (C3H3N)n. Though it is thermoplastic, it does not melt under normal conditions.

    Phew, that's a relief.

    Good evening. Busy AF day of work, starting with a meeting with a fecking princess who’s clearly always been given everything she’s ever asked for and has seen her @rse because my response to her telling me last week that she can’t teach a class she’s been allocated because the maths is too hard and she’s far too busy being a princess to pull her finger out and prepare for it wasn’t quite to her liking. Still, taught some awesome kids today so that’s all good.

    Can’t decide if I’ve done the right thing buying that frame set. Probably be excited when I get it. Nice curry for dinner and I’m going to allow myself a small glass of Malbec again. Should really try to do a bit of marking this evening but dunno if I can be bothered.

    If you don't like the frame set just sell it on. so long as you clear what you spent who's worried?

    Nah. I’m sure I’ll like it. It’ll be lighter and less harsh than the aluminium one which I can always keep and make up for teen GTi when he’s ready
