    Lazing about covers it

    Bored. Can't you fit the turbo trainer in there?
    Do you escape for a shower or are you going to really stink?
    Next round of the World Cup CX on telly later.

    It's breezy but there's a bit of brightness.

    Run runned now doing the same. Slept in a bit but it's OK because it looks like everyone else has done the same.
    Might go for an easy walk later.

    Getting up early on a Sunday morning should be made a criminal offence. I was annoyed when junior woke us up when she got up and started moving around at 8:30. She's now gone back to bed.

    Hounds met next doors lab puppy at the boundary fence, there was some barking and sniffing going on. Still have to get some fencing sorted to keep them out of a garden on the other side where a big Rottweiler lives. Big thick holly bushes make putting fencing in tricky but don't stop a smallish dog from getting through.

    You wouldn’t happen to have a CX events calendar would you? I’m getting into it now but still manage to miss every live race.

    Bright sunny morning, just right for a walk but apparently it rained a lot last night, and everything is very soggy.

    Might go on the rollers later when I've tidied the shed, yet again.

    Sunny but post rain with rain due in and fresh, so walking to The Chakademus & Pliers, Edwyn's newly opened public pouse for lunch then rolling back on fat tummy full of joy and food and beer.

    If it's any consolation it was just a run for the sake of it, having a seriously CBA day now :disappointed:

    If you're bored install Zwift and just sit on the start line giving out ride ons/abuse and see how many you can get back.

    S-L-O-W walk with the dog.

    Finished the shelving job, and quite pleased with the result. One job ticked off the list, finally. Cleaned up the shed, and a bunch of other dreary domestic chores.

    Friend rings and asks if he can come use the mechanic's pit in the shed tomorrow. Sure. Just give me a couple hours in the morning to move all the stuff out of the way.😬

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed, about to head over to the old dear's for a change. Both sisters are around so I'm trying to get them to sort their sh!t out. At least they've finally accepted the move will be happening and they need to do something.
    Stroptwentysomething up at 8.30 Stevo? I'd have assumed it was a burglar in this place, that or the lad staggering in after a particularly good night.
    Spinner definitely has more space than me, I really need to tidy the garage and make some space.

    Timed that ride well. Not. Forecast rain came in an hour plus early so got a tad damp on the return leg into the headwind. Ho hum. Ingesting some heat to aid recovery. Once stopped shivering and got chilled relaxed, more sofa session cyclocross ogling awaits.

    looks like something from Cars.

    V cool though, but I think it may get lost in WS' shed.

    Unimog with trailer, thats what he needs.

    I was as surprised as you, V - turned out she needed a leak. Unfortunately once someone gets up, the hounds get up and need a leak as well which means one of us has to get up and let them out/back in again. Hey ho. Also need to keep an eye on junior hound until we get the fence sorted between our place and the garden of one of the adjoining houses where the rottweiler lives...
