    Slow start as ended up drinking with my old cycling club last night and a few are cycling halfway back home with me - so should be fun.

    Then sort kids and dogs before longish run.

    Later is friends round for bbq and ale

    Mornin', up a bit earlier than usual to walk the hounds and do stuff as we have friends round this afternoon. May go for a ride early evening and make the most of the lighter evenings.

    Well it is too cold for dogging in a car park. Or so I'm told.

    Cloudless blue sky and sun except it's pretty brr...
    Slept in. Guess I needed it.

    Looking forward to Ronde van Vlavlavlavlanderen pushenum bikenum uphillem and circlem tomorrow.

    Today however, will be putting fat mate's bikes back together.
    Then late pedal when the sun has burnt frost off the back roads.

    I just roped TDV into helping me set up Bambino's new rear brake on his ferociously cool new bike I'm building him for his birthday. Sooooo cool.

    Who says I don't show her a good time on her birthday, eh?

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed, coffee has been had and about to head over to the old dear's. Looks reasonably sunny out at least, if a little chilly.
    Hippy bathday TDV, how does one TDV cope with all the MFs?
    Onwards and upwards...

    Finished the skirting and architrave fitting in the office, now just some gap seal to the tile floor and it's due for paint. Dismantled an old dresser cabinet and will re-use the drawer casings to make some side tables, or perhaps fit them in some custom joinery in the office.

    Where the hell is @step83 these days?

    I think Step dips in and out of BB. Maybe he's under the thumb a bit these days?

    Step's partner has arthritis (at quite a young age).
    So he's juggling work and looking after her.

    I can certainly send him a quick email.

    Evening

    Happy birthday TDV

    GTi junior’s birthday party was this morning - bunch of 9/10 year olds in a panic room. That was fun. Then picked up a “new” motor from Maidstone. Buggerall else done worth mentioning all week except for work which has been mad. Funeral/executor duties are continuing for Mrs GTi so that’s been taking up quite a lot of time too.

    Argh, not good. Do drop him an email to see how he's getting on and see if you can get him back on here a bit.
