    'ning

    Thistle's in another country already. Tw@t neighbours woke me up in the early hours and couldn't get back to sleep so making the most of the extra hours in the day and will get petty revenge later.

    Got into the office and all the lights and the coffee machine had been left on. So much for working for a super sustainable and environmentally saving company.

    @pinno having a lie in?

    He's a lazy sod isn't he. Not like us early birds :smiley:

    Back to the office. Torrential rain and a back muscle playing up means no pedalling, not good. Quite a few meetings lined up unfortunately.

    Grey gloomy rain. Shopping duty prohibits cycling today. Probably just as well, need to rest foot, knee & Hip pain cause by new shoe cleat set up. Ahh the joys of clipless. One more week before they get hit with a hammer, set alight and chucked over the neighbours fence*

    Side effect of an anti-histamine I took (on Tuesday?!).
    Crashed.
    If I can get my heart rate above 12bpm, I might pedal.
    [or; if I pedal, will I get my heart rate above 12bpm?].

    Gas engineers had tried on more than one occasion to get access to house with dodgy tenant.
    Tenant says they never tried. I've known gas engineers for as long as I have remembered*.
    I told him to contact the gas engineers and allow access.
    If he blows himself up, I hope nothing remains because anything with a pulse might take me to court.

    The delivery of this joke is nearly 100 years old but really tickled me when watched this scene a while back.

    Oliver Hardy: 'Didn't you once tell me that you had an uncle?'

    Stan Laurel: 'Sure, I've got an uncle. Why?'

    Oliver: 'Now we're getting somewhere. Is he living?'

    Stanley: 'No. He fell through a trap door and broke his neck.'

    Oliver: 'Was he building a house?'

    Stanley: 'No, they were hanging him.”

    yeah, but how is beans in this weather?

    ours don't like the thunder at all, though young one happily gets wet in the rain while his mum stays sensibly dry and warm

    Surprisingly chilled in a thunderstorm and doesn't seem to mind getting too wet.
    Jack learned that in the dark, if he walked a certain direction, the PIR lights would come on.
    I set them up so that in theory, if you needed to go to the garage, you can be 'hands free' and not have to faff trying to switch on a light.
    Beans has not figured this out yet, preferring to take an odd route which doesn't trigger the lights and it's far longer and more prone to getting wetter en route.

    [scene at park café trying to impress 2 ladies but they're short of money. Oliver suggests buying a glass of milk which they will share between them.]

    Stan picks up the glass and drinks the lot.

    Oliver: Why did you drink all of the milk, we were meant to have half each?
    Stan: (tears in eyes) Yes, but my half was on the bottom.

    Morning all. WFW and its my Friday. Run later as usual thurs night crew are all busy. Anybody want a mutt that doesn't like thunder storms. 3 nights on the trot he's been a right royal PITA
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Taking the new mini to the SW tonight and staying at Mrs B3's friend place next door to our place. I need to be on-site Friday and Saturday to take delivery of new sofas and beds, even though we don't yet own the place. The previous owners have already moved out, and will be letting me have access to put the new stuff in the right places.

    Freeholder is dragging feet on a deed of variation, but hopefully that will be sorted soon and exchange/completion can happen within a short time.

    Today wfw, piked out of riding in due to extreme sogginess.

    That's what happens when you try to recall things off the back of your head.
    But the gist of it was the same.

    I assume cats have decent night vision?
    Maybe he prefers to stay in constant darkness rather than get blinded when the light comes on, then have to adjust to dark again when it goes off?

    Evening folks,
    Busy day in the orifice, fire alarm went off at one point. Thankfully it wasn't raining. Very lucky with the timing of my wobbling to and fro, missed the rain by minutes each time.
    WFH tomorrow so I can be a little lazier.

    Anyway, given what's happened today I thought this was a fitting fitting send off for the old bird:
