    Shoot sleep so walked rather than ran this morning.

    Lots of work stuff today, still better than the wife’s day who is taking the MIL to various appointments.

    Later should be a run but I think it will be bikes with a pal

    Top 'o the morn to all and sundry.

    Dental hygenist this morning at 9am. Mouth still smarting. Ooof!


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

  • Quite dull today, will spend most of writing up paper work for jobs then maybe visit the gym after work.
    12 days until skiing!

  • Moaning,
    The early frost has burnt off now, still nippy but full on sun looks great.

    Off for a trail ride today I planned yesterday, depending on how muddy it is (I get) will depend on how far I can travel before having to sort refuge in a hostelry.

    Meant to be out earlier but one thing and another…

    Busy morning, busy of sorts: juggling plumber visit vs dad's taxi duties, accomplished. Now en route once again, once hah as if, to my favourite Eye Hospital for to get stuck in the eye with a big sharp thing. See those fraidy cat vacc-needle-phobes? Pah, 'kin wimps.

    He's away on his hols, you don't have to call it a man cave now until he comes back :wink:

    Runned to the office which was harder work than it should've been, and means I've got to run back later.

    Went out to a meeting that someone else had arranged, and the organiser didn't turn up so that was a waste of time, but at least it was outside in the sunshine.

    Quiet teaching day today, managed to do some marking. Waiting on a head of maths from a different school to arrive so I can help her with managing loads of coursework. Didn’t ride outside yesterday, set the turbo up and used that. Now realise why my hips and lower back ache - sooooo unfit!!

    Get a small wood burner installed for a few hundred quid, we were shocked at how much electric we were using when MrsHD started her own business WFH.

    Yep, last bill was an eye opener but mid Dec to mid Jan with junior at home etc was always going to be heavy. Might be a bit of a pain getting a wood burner installed as it's a converted garage, but we might start using the fireplace in the lounge to compensate.

    And I've saved a fair bit on (not) commuting.

    Looks like I'll have to carry on calling it a man cave :smile:

    Also you'll have Seano on your case for doing him out of a job impersonating forumites.

    Sun popped out 1/3rd the way through the ride, far and wide, traversing the the geographical vernacular from 'twenty twae' to 'twenty twa' to 'twenty two'.

  • Just installed a TV for a 4yr old, my god android is bloody complicated.
    If it were an apple TV I'd plug it in and it would just work. Granted it would be 25 times the price but it'd just work!

    Got back to the car this evening and was a bit wobbly for about 15 mins.

    And shyte by the sound of it. Was forced to endure listening to him playing when Mrs. 666 insisted on having on of his gigs on the box last week. Drinking p1ss might be preferable.
