    Slept twice as long as Monday night - so a whole 6 hrs. My plan of a relaxed night was mucked up by a run, swim and then the pub - but wife is happy so had to do it.

    Today is work snizzle with later currently unplanned but could do with washing and rebuilding my bike

    Bit tired as junior decided to get up at 6am to get an early gym session in before her placement at the vets. A large coffee has partially restored the balance.

    Another day stewing in the cave. Got my pensions & finance bloke coming round this afternoon for a review and to look at Mrs. 666's old work pension that she found down the back of the sofa the other week.

    Bike ride later if it"s not too hot n sweaty early evening.

    Coffee time. OH is away so I'll likely spend the day trying to decide what to cook/order later. Might ride my bike if I can be bothered. Might also go for a drive and enjoy not driving a car that is sub 2 tonnes for once.

    Girls and Mrs P packed off to arts session/picnic/park so it's just Beans and I, content in each others company and peace.

    Must do admin.

    Signed my Will this morning so that means if I get squished under a tractor whilst out on my bike later, it's sorted.

    The timing would be perfect if the carbon bits I ordered arrive soon via Royal Snail...

    Reminds me - must get my will done.

    Wfh this morning. Changed brake pads - now have properly functioning brakes. Rode in for wfw this afternoon. Tdf highlights in the a/c hutch later.

    That's funny, wife and I are doing our wills at the moment. Kinda sobering.

    Feeling the heat in a pair of jeans today, site meetings in this heat are a pain but turning up in flip flops isn't on either.
    Ride out this evening to watch MrsHD and her running pals finish a 10m trail run, there maybe a pint but unsure as yet.

    You haven’t done your will yet!? At your age, with your diet, pushing yourself to the limit on your bike? Get it done boy.

    I know. To be fair, it's not complex, leave it all to Mrs B³.

    I left my half of the house to junior. And Mrs. 666 didn't mind.

    I expect to be pushing up daisies long before Mrs B³, as Seano rightly points out. She'll pass it on to mini and the boy.

    Worth thinking about getting as much as possible to the kids. Willing stuff direct to them can help reduce care home fees as well as the obvious IHT stuff.

    Tricky and Shorty will have trust funds set up to reduce the IHT. Might handover assets (without their knowledge) but must time it right so that I live at least 7 more years from that point.

    True, but in the event that your last words are '**** me, where did that bus come from?' it's worth having a back up.

    Also good for the care home situation.

    I'll be giving stuff away as well - already am as I'm paying juniors uni fees and living expenses.

    Btw You can pass on £1m worth of property using the residential nil rate for you and Mrs. P. You just got to do your wills right...

    What's wrong with you lot, you're all an absolute shower. Can't believe nobody has asked the obvious yet.
    Can I have your bikes once you've gone please?
