    'Ning

    Looks like it will be a lovely, but cool day here.
    Off up a mountain to search for lost kit 🙄 then to the cafe if it's still open.

    Morning. Rugby season well underway with the first match this morning. Home game so I get to enjoy a bacon roll after it. Hopefully the boys feel well prepared. Leg update - the obvious wound is looking better. Still loads of pain when I first stand up and nasty twinges during the day. Starting to wonder if there might be a bit of a crack on the bone. I’ll have a trip to urgent care tomorrow if it hasn’t started getting better; standing up for large parts of the day wouldn’t be helpful if there is.

    Other than that, the long weekend means loads of marking and finishing writing a paper. Fun…
  • Getting my autumn/winter/spring kit out, putting summer kit away.

    Dog walk on the cards. Some loafing too. Maybe treat the bike to a wash.
  • Very nippy at 0600 but quickly warming up.

    Took delivery of a Perfetto long sleeve yesterday from the chaps and chapesses at Wiggle. Will test once the toots are off on their jolly and the decks are clear.
    It's lovely and sunny but a little bit brr.

    Due to the unpredictable nature of autumn... spring... summer... winter... I always have whatever clothing at my disposal and it's on hangers and it's not all wrinkly after being squished*. :smiley:

    Back still playing up so will be taking things carefully. Was fine till I rolled out of bed. Hey ho.

  • Seeing as I've just sorted it all, I know I have:

    2 x summer bib shorts, 2 x thermal bib shorts, 1 x light bib tights, 1 x heavier bib tights. 2 x perfetto short sleeves, 1 x alpha ros light jacket, 1 x mid weight assos jacket, 3 x summer jerseys, 1 x knee warmers, 1 x arm warmers, light gloves, winter gloves, 2 x baselayer mesh vests, 2 x long sleeve merino baselayers. Various socks, some thick, some thin. 1 x neoprene shoe covers. 1 x rain jacket. 1 x skull cap.

    It's the October to May stuff that takes up the room, as there's more of it, so it gets vac packed. Dunno how you wrinkle lycra...

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed, up too early for me yesterday. Great day at Goodwood, helped a mate fix a broken motorbike so it was good to race today. Didn't watch that much of the track action, spent longer wandering pits and paddock looking at stuff. Had an interesting chat with the owner of our biggest suppler, asked wtf was going on at our place. Bit of an ego boost for me, said I was the only one that knows what I'm doing. Great, but not very reassuring.
    Lots of E Types and rather more expensive cars there. Some very tasty. Not surprised your mate broke the gearstick if it's a S1 Stevo. Famously difficult gearbox in those. Car looks great though.
    Lad had his last day at RR and got rather merry.
    Busy day of doing stuff lies ahead, but maybe a coffee first 😁

    All you need is a vacuum cleaner and the right bags. They're pretty good.

    That's a lot of kit!

    Does that include kit in the loft?
    Think I'd take up a pageful. 🤣
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Luckily it was only the little cap on top of the gear stick. He's added to the list of niggles to sort. Bigger one is the slightly leaky join between manifold and down pipes which was making the car smell like you were stood behind it when we were sat in it.

  • Having a chimay triple and looking at the autumn sun in the garden. Given the abv of the beer, I'm basically a tramp in a park, except the tramp's beer is cheaper, and his vista is wider. Mmmm. Posh tramp.

    Just savoured a beef in beer long slow cook casserole made with a Chimay Bleu, very tasty. Would have used Chimay Rouge but down to my last bottle of that. Got the replenishment Belgie trip upcoming early October. Hope the £ doesn't tank any further before then.

    My vista is of course bob on.

    In other news, another garden fettling sesh completed, keep on keeping on in this dry weather. New vege patch tilled over, pretty much ready to rock. New beech hedge line also tilled, ready for bare root slip planting come winter. Progress is good.

    He's got his final year at university to get his masters. Then he's a certified engineer, as opposed to just certifiable. He's been told by a couple of senior managers that he should apply for their grad scheme for when he's finished which bodes well.
    Taking a car full of his stuff back to Brum tomorrow, should free up a lot of space here.

    That's not too bad, that gearbox is hideous. But bulletproof. A 5 speed conversion will work wonders. Brakes are pretty poor on those as well, worth doing something about if he intends to drive it.
    Manifold to downpipe gasket shouldn't be hard to fix.
    B³'s given me an idea, I might raid the fridge for some posh tramp juice.

    First time with a Bleu. Usually I'm using St Bernardus 6, dark brown, out of those now or in festive season go full on Westvleteren 12 😳. This stoverij is pretty bloody good, I may have found a new taste dimension.

    😊 gone rogue, 'new' potato, the small baby type and a glass of Malbec.

    Looking forward to the Poperinge trip in October, will have been 6 months since last time and as the seasons head that way the menus will be more 'warming' stylee.

    Mind you, travel times going to be a bit more now I have exited The Valley. Worth it though.

    Ok, I bite, 4.20am in a dining room? Still arguing over the bill?
  • Just discovered the local hill to me in Somerset is this year's national hill climb course. Must get more forgiving gearing.

    Forgot to say, I'm happy to lend a hand with changing cranks Seano. Bring it all over. If I declare your bike beyond repair you can leave it all here.

    Yep, gearbox was awful - he was having to wrestle it nto 1st and we were sat at the lights for 2 or 3 seconds after they went green before we could move off. I'll mention the 5 speed conversion idea, ta.

    He's got some washers to fix the manifold problem, just needs time to sort it.

    Might have to resort to tramp fuel myself if Ibuprofen and having having a lie down doesn't sort out my bloody back.
