    Hire car should turn up today and we can then refill the beer fridge.

    Going clothes shopping so likely to be a frustrating morning.
    Saw an interesting job advertised yesterday, in 2 minds whether or not to apply.

    Here comes the rain again
    Falling on my head like a memory
    Falling on my head like a new emotion


    Right on schedule. Going to be an inside day. Slight bonus is that rain will help cool down the temp tarmac patching put on the scree slope driveway yesterday (spare from next door's work) so by tomorrow night I might (might) be able to take my car up it.

    More coffee garçon...

    Sounds like you've time travelled back to the start of the week. Where you gone this time?

    Up a bit too early for a weekend but my bowels had other ideas, same for the hounds who've now gone back to sleep. Later will be the obligatory dog walk, a weights session and helping junior get ready to head up to Liverpool for another vet related placement (read unpaid work experience).

    It's very fine, almost posh rain here and hardly any wind to blow it away. It may stay for while.
    A good thing as the garden is bone dry.

    Will see how Vin and Pog go in the TdF ITT.

    Morning all. Parkrun run, Met a few nutters doing 24hr Thunder run later today. Might go and meet up and have a few beers with their support crew later. Looks like I'm stuck doing the wkly shop as OH is still bad, 2 days off work is not her so she must be bad. Not the pesky lurgy yet but seems very similar. Eldest has apparently recovered from lurgy and still away with his GF. House is very quiet. Warm out drying up last nights rain.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Ooh, I love Cyprus. Where abouts? Get your dark sunglasses on and enjoy the boobies. Watching 2 blonde Russian topless beauties play beach paddle tennis with reckless abandon, is my go to memory of Protaras πŸ˜ƒ

    We went to Protaras a few years ago. Great atmosphere at the time as the World Cup was on so some good afternoons and evenings in the bars were had :smile: And footy on the box in nearly all the restaurants.

    Enjoy hols all you holiday people.

    Done my 45 mins of interval penance on the peloton with Emma Lovewell. It says 45 mins at average 235w, but I dont really believe that, there's no power meter. However, fitness is coming back, and my clothes are starting to fit again.

    Dog walk, butcher's shop, then loafing, maybe a crossword. Fettle bike later this afternoon.

    Up fairly early as the small people stayed overnight, plus side to that is that we all went to see The rise of Gru at the cinema last night!

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed. About to take the EPO to an opticians appointment then picking up my new cycling shoes, strap broke the other day which is dull. Going to Sigma Sports is always dangerous as I might get tempted. Problem is the credit card bill from our holiday was delivered in a lorry this morning 😳

    Turned out a nice afternoon. Booking car for hols at end August. General layaboutery, unlikely to watch Tdf TT, but might.

    Any good?

    A lazy Saturday, triggered by it pishing it down this afternoon but the TT was a good watch, partic the top 3 vs WvA. And did have sore muscles after a heavy gym sesh yesterday so quiet day could be best option.

    A positive thing that cheers me up: having escaped Ingerlaand to the Homeland, I'd lost access via NHS app as deregistered from previous GP to Covid proof of vaccinations. Can foresee another winter of discontent coming, thought had better get organised to get those showing on NHS Scotland app, got travel booked for autumn, might take some time wot wiv bureaucracy and that.

    Found a pdf from last November with those limited validity QR codes. Ok, upload pics of those, prob get rejected as old but a start and can argue my case. And this is Saturday. Within 2 hours got an email back saying approved, and just checked the app and proofs now there. Pretty blxxdy good service levels there.

    So I can enter Trumpland now, unlike Novax the Goat.

    Evening folks. Wkend officially can't get any worse, OH has finally been caught by bat flu. She's being bloody evil over it because it's gone on her chest and no inhalers to ease it. The good side is I can banish her to the spare room.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
