    No hounds to walk as we are away so the kids will hopefully do it.

    Reasonable run needs doing and then a nice lunch somewhere followed by an afternoon of ale and a night on a boat to celebrate a pals birthday, it’s going to be messy.

    Don't fall off the boat.

    Wedding reception was bearable but that was because I knew a lot of people. It was hooge. Buffet was high on the puke scale.
    Filled the ice rink (curling).
    I wondered how they covered the floor but it didn't work like that. The ice is melted and then drained off.

    Morning. Chill day today losing eldest and his GF as their of on holiday later. 🤞🙂 Peace will return. Out with OH and young oxo later for a meal later. Weathers just dull but dry here at the minute, should have snuck out earlier.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    'ning. Apparently it's IOW Randonnee day, every year that it has ran over the last five years since I began doing more riding, it has always caught me by surprise on the day! Looks like morning of sporadic showers, then steadier rain this afternoon, so perhaps not such a loss this year as I don't want my Cube melting, must get across there to do the Ventnor esplanade to Down Lane tasty little climb at some point.

    Snooker final later, IV drip of caffeine now, trying to decide whether to try and dodge the rain showers or set up the turbo once MrsNOTG gets up.

    Seems like I managed to get sunburned riding around yesterday for 7+ hours, today it's cool, breezy and wet.
    Went up the local "mountain" first thing, got soaked but managed to chat to a couple of people in South Aus on the radio, nobody from the @Wheelspinner estate though.

    Minor lie in had. Off to Tunbridge Wells shortly to pick up some tiles for the bathroom. Then may head out and walk the hounds who've already run themselves silly chasing each other round the garden and are now snoozing.

    Afternoon. Massive pile of old fence panels and stuff gone. Head is sore and scabby. Off to Hampshire for a gig in a couple of hours. Hound has been unwell for about 10 days. 12 year old Labrador so it’s a little worrying as she’s off her food. We’ll give the meds the vet gave her a few more days but hope she starts improving a bit.

    Fingers crossed for your dog Jgti.

    Tivoli Gardens. Ride dodging. Managed to find some of the best oysters I've had in ages for lunch. Really plump and delicious.



    Dinner later, then some more harbour hopping tomorrow on the boat bus thing.

    Sorry Beani, 🤮 just no. Urghh each to their own.

    Yummy. Just with a squeeze of lemon?

    Afternoon folks, traditional slow start was enjoyed, spent a bit of time with the EPO doing nothing in particular before wobbling to Wombledon for lunch with friend's daughter and baby. Walked up to the common after lunch then went to check on the old dear's new gaff. Work seems to be progressing well. Old place is still standing, but not for long. Passed B³'s place but didn't stop given he's off gallivanting.

    That's all very well but what do you think of oysters?

    Well done HD that's not a bad ride. Suspect you might need a donut cushion for a bit.

    For a couple of quid each?! Good going. Do they smell fresh, these cut price vag? Do the owners mind when you squeeze lemon on them?

    Apols, was out of range yesterday… went for a drive up the coast with car group for lunch, turned out rather nice day too.

    Off this morning to get stabbed in the neck again.

    I have no desire to have sexual relations with an oyster, not sure why you would think otherwise. Do you think I'm a Conservative politician or something?

    On the plus side, you don't have to take an oyster out for dinner and talk to it about its problems.
