    Offices far away but time for a gentle jog with the hounds.

    They're thinking the same thing.

    Started cloudy and windy and damp.
    It's now sunny, windy and damp.

    Some chores and more rental property candidate viewing/selection/de-selection/elimination.

    Weakest link or Love Island?

    Bought an Ikea cupboard yesterday to put all the bike sh1te instead of the pile on the floor so that's my day sorted #exciting

    If the latter, do I give them a discount?

    In office again, about to start a few meetings - hopefully I can make it to lunch without getting grouchy as there's no food on offer an any of them.

    Next round of work on the house starts next week with new some windows going in.

    My cave has two windows and a door - it's the soft southern luxury version. But its not getting new ones. House has a weird mix of newer double glaze and older single glaze courtesy of the last owners which we're putting right.

    Tokyo day. 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. 30 mins for a "sando" at 12, 30 mins for miso ramen at 6. With a rampant hangover. Presentations, meetings and a 3 hour accounting conference. Apart from the food and the exceedingly elegant women, I could as well be in Brum.

    Tomorrow afternoon is my pitch to the CFO and CEO. 7.5 mins to convince them I'm ace. I might do the old "white-eared elephant" gag, see how that goes down.

    Casual beers after work tomorrow. Full day Friday, then dinner with 2nd tier big cheeses. Then a day sightseeing with the UK accounting head and 2 of the younger Japanese guys, and buying the long list of shyte Mrs B³ wants. Plus trying to stay out of hostess bars, strip joints and massage parlours.

    Fookin' knackad. One Sapporo. Sleep the sleep of the dead.

    Got up nice and early for a ride this morning, 8km my rear gear cable snapped so had to power home. Made it 99% of the way but the road up to home is a bit steep for the granny cog.
    Currently working on some quotes, need to fix the bike tonight in readiness for weekend.
    And tour de manc have actually put some photos up...

    Bzzzt. Doom Bar ain't local.

    A day of stuff sorting, utilities organising, and general messing around. Das's taxi duties this evening, taxi taxi firm trying it on with ripoff prices. Chancers.
