    Ooh you lucky devils.

    Nice wobble in risking rain but managed to stay dry. Not feeling the worse for wear after drinkies. Work avoidance beckons.

    Bright and breezy here.
    Service hatch, joining, wheelbarrowing (gravel) and get as much as we can done today before a few days of bad weather. Though, i'll be happy to do nothing for a few days bar some indoor pedalling.

    @tlw1 Why is Eldest going to Manc central?

    Methinks tomorrow will be soggy.
    Can you have a word with the organiser of the Jet stream?
    Surely celestial hierarchy puts you above a meteorological deity's.

    the tabby said it's our own fault, if we wanted nice weather we should have doe something about global warming decades ago, bit late now

    managed a quick blast up to the summit of alpe d'hampstead and back, looking at the rain radar i'll manage a cafe stroll as well before the rain hits

    He has joined my dad & grandad and followed that team.

    As my dad gets a few hospitality tickets - bar the football he made a good decision

    Manure went back to pre Fergie form (as soon as he left) and long may it last so you can have infinite poke's at 'em.

    Does he live far enough away from Manchester to be considered a true Man U fan though? Chelsea fans visiting Old Trafford sing 'We'll race you back to London' to the Manure fans.

    In the office and it's tanking down outside. Luckily I've brought my own food supplies and there's limitless coffee on tap. At least it'll be dry tomorrow in time for my next trial one legged bike ride.

    Afternoon folks,
    Wimped out and drove in today, half term lack of traffic swung it for me. The persistent rain is telling me I made the right call. Had a few strange incidents on the bike recently. I think they might have closed a local facility for the hard of thinking or something. One was a woman ran into the side of me as I was riding through the park. Big wide path, woman walking a dog over to the right, so I moved to the left. She starts meandering towards the middle so I called out "on your left" as a warning. She didn't look round but broke into a run and hit side of me as I passed, then screamed. I was on the grass at that point as I'd run out of path trying to avoid the dozy bint. She probably got home and complained about cyclists. Another one was a runnist shouting at me that my light was too bright, it was on the lowest setting and points down a little. I only saw him as the lights at the end of the park disappeared from view for a moment as he blocked my view of them. He was running in the dark dressed head to toe in black. Did I interrupt his attempt at ninja training or something. People are very strange.

    Looks like me and @ballysmate got another message from a secret admirer last night.

    Are you rich now from the profits of Liberian gold? I got one of those too, but I ignored it as she didn't say she loved me.

    Ah yeah that's the same one.
    I've transferred the money and I'm waiting to hear back from her lawyer.

    I'd like to set up a new email account and wind them up but don't have the time.

    Channeling my inner MF and sitting in a carpark, got 1.5h to kill before final property viewing of the day. Going to be dark by then methinks.

    Think I'll go for a wander by the water side, pretty location.

    Or could just tap away via this free WiFi link I've found. Who can tell?

    Afternoon peeps. Busy day today with a silly o'clock dry ride into work and a dry ride back. Pity about the deluge in-between. Hopefully another quiet evening chilling out with a few bottles of something remotely alcoholic.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Disappointed, I thought he must have considered me a cut above.

    Shortfall loves you.

    Pretty shite meal in the 'Table Table' brand place. Nae haddock so fish 'n' chips off, scampis were ok, fries were distinctly average. All I wanted was a simple hot meal plus 1, yes one, beer. And having loudmouth Inglish bossman sounding off to a couple of his Scottish minions nearby added a lot to the general ambiance. Should have just gone to Tesco.

    One more viewing tomorrow morning then scram before Dudley arrives.

    Ditch dug. Pipework in. Junctions set. Inspection hatch built.
    Now I have to find the energy/window in the weather to fill it all in and re-build the wood shed.
