    Proper night's sleep and feeling much better.

    Looks dry outside too so might wobble in to work on the bicycle.

    Last nights bike ride went via a pub for a quick pint, then a level up the rounds and repeat until my mate got a very unhappy wife text - despite the log burner being on it was very frosty here too 😂

    Gentle jog then more work stuff, later is the only free night of the week so I’m sure it will get filled by something

    On the train again into town for last day in the office and last day at work this year - yay. Not many people on the train at all.

    Quick interview of minions potential minion, bit of work, annual BUPA MOT then home.

    Coffee'ing. Sent TDV out into the wilderness with the hound as its freezing cold and I spend enough time getting cold.

    Today is bambini to dentist, bamabina to dermatologist 'cos her skin has come right up bless her and onwards. Will try and get gym sesh in so i look good for hottie dental nurses - its a very trendy dental practice.

    Morning, much pretending to WFH today. Winter Solstice weirdos were up making noises in the wood being one with the forest etc, unless they happened to impale themselves on a tree I doubt they succeeded there.

    Nice fresh ground coffee, log burner set to incinerate mode an nice music to work my way into the day.

    It's the shortest day.
    Not a mention from SG. Bit disappointed.
    It will get lighter and lighter by approx. 2mins and 7 seconds all the way until June.
    Not a lot on the cards today, so will layer up and go pedal in the fog. It's very fine that fog stuff innit. Seeps in and penetrates every layer.

    Will Ghislaine go down for a 600 year stretch?
    Will I get my wrapping done?
    Will container company cough up before Xmas?
    Will I get the Xmas quiz finished on time?
    Will WS actually make a boudoir out of wood with his wood cutting gadget?
    Will Boris implode?

    So many questions, so much time.

    Liar. There's no way YOU sent TDV out.
    She must have gone voluntarily.

    Interesting but immaterial.
    Those dental assistants will see the inside of his mouth.
    It would be more prudent to go in disguise.

    good point very well presented. you have seen through my thin facade of actually having any say in any part of my life.

    her actual words to me were: "shut up you moron. i'd prefer to watch the dog poo in the road in the freezing cold then spend any time with you".

    i've interpreted that as hidden words of love.
