sunday emerges from an underlying phenomenon

'ning

milder, but perhaps roads soggy

ride, cafes, mince pie, bubbly

toasty savoury will feature at some point as mrs s gave me a pot of f&m rarebit for research purposes
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Great day doing the salop sludger yesterday improved by the current wife joining us later with the camper van so no driving and lots of drinking enjoyed.

    Now is wait for her to wake up and then a gentle walk into bishops castle for breakfast then head home to sort out the hounds and kids.

    F1 watching and pub will also be enjoyed

    Morning. Lads football off due to waterlogged pitch. Will be at OH,s beck and call again, but at least the lads can assist today. Hopefully get a few jobs done today without to much greif off the OH telling me I'm doing it wrong.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Ciao!

    Coffee then back into the old routine - babino to tennis, then onward with famiglia duties.

    Sounds like a fun event. Did you get soup and cake?

    You need to move that jacket off the bannister 'cos it may ignite a domestic.

    Morning folks, traditional slow start is being enjoyed. Going to help the lad fix a bad earth on the Golf rear lights when he rises, then off to help friend's daughter move. Bought her a mocha pot as a flat warming gift, important things first.
    Hope the MFs are enjoying a bit of tranquility, sitting in a car park isn't so bad after all.

    Apparently bannisters are not for hanging coats on so I chuck my jacket on the stairs.

    Junior headed back to Scouserpool for another week before the Xmas hols so will give her a lift into town then finish writing my Christmas cards.

    Connected a few Christmas lights last night so we now have illuminated bushes at night. Quite subtle compare to 2 doors down who have gone for the full house light set plus some projection onto the front of the house.

    some people like an illuminated, some a trimmed bush.

    it all depends on the kinda garden you have I suppose.

    Finally, ride rided. Without breaking the new chain inside 300m this Sunday. All a bit mucky and gloopy, 'tis the season. Good to get the legs working again. Bike hosed down, left to drip dry, need to go finish it off while there still is daylight.

    Evening. Ride ridden. Lunch had. Bike washed. Put back out lifting bike. Now writhing in pain. B&gger.

    Evening. Done some marking, finished building up the defy frame set so that’s ready for a ride as soon as that’s possible. Currently watching it’s a wonderful life. Strictly results show soon. Then time to make a couple of video lessons for tomorrow and setting work for the week.

    We should bring hats and suits back.

    Yo dudes, kids football, dog walking and jobs day. Kids managed to scrap out a 1-1 thriller. Can see them making a bit of progress each week. They're a team of cast offs so scrapping for a point is great to see.

    Magic! And to top today off I’ve just been pinged as apparently was in close contact with someone last Tuesday during work. F’ffing fantastic. Pcr test now booked.

    I used to hate the programme but I've been dragged in. Rose has been amazing this year, absolutely stunning young woman.

    Anyway, nowt wrong with a bit of dancing.

    I’d like to rumba with AJ, those legs!

    It’s not been the same since Ola Jordan left and took her catsuit with her 🥲

    Yeah, that rumba was something else…and her Argentine tango earlier in the series was properly steamy!

    I saw Ola Jordan once in the Virgin Active in Bromley a few years ago :smile:

    The legs prize has to go to Nancy Xu this season. And agree jgti, Rose is very presentable. I only know these things because the Mrs hijacks the remote from time to time and I CBA to move off the sofa...

    I almost feel like I should have watched a bit of strictly, thankfully Google images will educate me without having to suffer that.
