    Dunno mate.

    TLW is avoiding me 'cos he hasn't coughed up some Wonga for bike gear or..
    TLW's wifey won't endorse it.

    There's a huge Hello Kitty plaster shortage in Guatemala.

    SG ran over some Oligarch pineapple wholesaler in Richmond park. Oops.

    Stevo won't be up yet.

    Oxo and Photonic have been bumped off by their offspring after imposing draconian restrictions.

    WS is tucked up in Taz and dreaming of a new skeleton for Christmas.

    Thistle - who knows? Does he know?

    Gti died under the weight of a serious backlog of marking.

    Mystery bird? Who that?

    Today I will be mowstly collecting repaired kit, the leafblower is ready yay, graveller should have its new chain #2 if LBS find one from their other branches, but task of the day will be breaking out my wellies from their clay moulds after last Friday's shenanigans.

    Cargo bike is papering the landing in his brothel.

    Vtech is being pursued by a Russian who's Ferrari went pop not long after being re-mapped. They have probably sold his organs in South America by now.

    Do you think we could rattle his cage?

    I did manage to grab a pack of mince pies before my packaging demise though. Least it'll be warm though.

    Speaking of which: had an M&S mince pie yesterday.
    Pastry was good but it was surprisingly salty all round.
    Lidl one is marginally better but would be top dollar if the pastry was better.

    Morning folks,
    I've been hiding from customers for 3 years now, but they keep seeking me out or questions get transferred to me via equally stupid sales staff.

    That's the kind of information we need. I just had a Sainsbury's Taste the Difference mince pie with a dollop of Waitrose clementine and Cointreau cream. I think the pie was alright, but hard to tell with the cream on top. I'll have to have another later without the cream for research purposes.
    I think SG is more likely to be in the ther RP, Regents rather than Richmond. Pineapple thieving oligarchs are a problem in both mind.
    I'm on my only day of wfh today so trying to make the most of it. People keep bothering me though. Need to buy some bicycle bits, just got confirmation of pay out for broken wrist, woohoo!

    Not had a mince pie yet 😳

    Lol at Pinna - work snizzle at the start of the month, plus sorting out my favourite member with parts 😉 will sort it later

    Tried running last night after my bike ride, it’s not looking good.

    In was actually up quite early to head into the office. Got some beers after work arranged with mates which is good. Although looks like the work Xmas bash next week is getting canned.

    Seano, I haven't felt any needle like pains, so maybe he's moved onto another moral reprobate?

  • Another day of rubbish weather, cool and showery again. Even the dog didn't fancy a walk this morning.

    Had to go out anyway for supplies, lunch had at nearby cafe.

    Back to the shed this afternoon for a second attempt at box joints for drawer making, and this time it's worked out damned near perfect. Now I have the jig and system sorted, I can get on with it... 32 drawers to make for the walk-in wardrobe. That's me busy for a while.

    Afternoon shall involved some paid mechanicary, (f.uck about with my car at work.) need to find the source of the slow puncture and stick something in it. I may be walking home later.

    It's entirely plausible that this won't be enough. I have a slight tendency to OCD when it comes to storage and would rather have more (shallower) drawers than a few deep ones.

    I'll know once I start machining up the timber for them whether I've enough material to make more.

    Like you say, that'll keep you busy.
    Good luck
  • Now Decembers here I’ve sorted a mince pie supplier. Sainsbury’s standard pies are the preferred nibble, M&S are good though. I’ve got a packet of Morrison’s mince pies going spare (minus one) if anybody fancies them, waaay too sweet for me.
    Still too early for a tree or any other Christmas tat though.

    It’d be nice if the rain/sleet would stay away long enough for a quick ride out in daylight without looking like Michelin man, arh dream on…

    But there's no tyre weld in that kit.
    Aerosol. 1 tin.

    How are you supposed to get a tyre off/on a rim and balance the wheel at the side of the road to fix a ouncture?

    Perhaps... drive a tyre breakdown truck?

    Eh? You don’t need to take the tyre off the rim. Find the puncture, core enough room to insert the rubber plug thingy, cut off the excess, jobs a good’n

    Ah, the bodgit option.
    Slow punctures can be difficult to find.
    Livestock water troughs are tricky to find in the city.
    I suppose you have a few duck ponds in that there Londinium.
