    HD wins today so far

    Hounds walked, work stuff then off to look around a heath club with the family. When I say look around, there is no chance I will get away with walking away without signing up.

    Later is a recovery run on trashed legs from yesterday

    The trial of Louis XVI.

    Garden and house survived the overnight storm though it's still very windy out there.
    Sparrows are putting up a good morning shout somehow despite the wind. Bless 'em.
    Tricky is on a go slow. Shorty is a rocket...

    'Health spa'. Ooo look at you. I thought you had a hot tub, wood burner and a fridge?
    Soon you'll be playing golf.

    Pidcock-esque commute thwarted by chilly wind. Covid working it’s way through the house of oconn, booking 2 days off to look after poorly child. At least I’ll get some gardening done.

    Calm yesterday, not so much today very blustery things being tossed around etc. Think I shall remain hidden indoors. Did get out yesterday on the pedalcycle if anyone has seen my fitness can you let me know so I can pick it up.

    Shiney bike photo because it's shiney, an i could get away with riding it in the zero wind we randomly had

    HD def wins. Up very (for me) early to get to a rescheduled clinic annual check appt, got rebooked for 0830, on a Monday. Try getting anywhere in The City for 0830. And of course I was late, missed the connecting bus by 15 secs, annoying to see it pull away from the stop.

    All done. Bus then walk then train then walk then breakfast. Then admin stuff. What an exciting, stimulating day.

    Morning!

    Productive weekend - bike room is almost finished. Just needs skirting board and a second cabinet/locker. Rode to Canvey Island yesterday. Tip: NCN route 13, east of Tilbury Fort is basically the foundations of the Thames flood defence wall. Swerve it, unless you like riding over driftwood and getting London clay (from the Lambeth seam, I think) stuck in your brake calipers.

    I would also avoid Canvey Island, unless you're looking for an arbitrary destination east of the capital to tick off some Veloviewer squares. Shiithole.

    sometimes i just ride off at random, no map, no phone, just get to around 50-60k then turn around

    a few years ago i was out somewhere in the eastern sticks and looking for a route back west, saw a sign for ncn 1

    cycle route i thought, what a good idea i thought, let's try it i thought

    turned into several km of lumpy strade bianche about a metre wide, with low hanging branches and bits of homicidal foliage sticking out

    took it at speed, totally coated in chalk dust, reaching the end introduced me to the novel experience of being glad to see gravesend

    T'was a lovely summer day. Did some shed stuff to start the pile of drawers on my to-do list.

    Late afternoon walk over to the other beach for a swim before drinkies.




    Was rather pleasant and the tourists have mostly left. Yay! Avoided getting pinged by the rather large skate cruising the shallows.

    Washed car, BBQ bangers and mash for dinner.

    We do a fair bit of veggie food, but yet to find a banger that's up to scratch. Soz!

    Afternoon peeps,

    Busy morning or work and repairing the latest dog escape route under the fencing created by the local foxes. Bit breezy here so am hunkered down in the caverna dell'uomo till it all blows over. More meeting tedium this afternoon.

    Got pinged by HR yesterday to tell me I'd been in contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid, but can still come into the office as long as I don't test positive.

    cauldron brand 'cumberland sausage' ones are quite nice, with plenty of english mustard, need to fry them in oil, grilling doesn't go well

    +1.

    They're pretty good imitations. Although as far as I'm concerned, you can't beat meat (not when it comes to food anyway).
