    Morning Aardvarks

    Ditto Thistle.

    It's going colder next week.
    Tomorrow's forecast is good which means riding an actual bike on an actual road rather than an actual bike on some... round plastic thingies..

    Bit chilly on my morning ride, no sun though. Plenty stopping power instead. Endos are back on the menu.

    I entered my 50th year today, as Mrs B³ kindly pointed out on my card...A jumper and a sock advent calendar was my gift haul. Early bail on the cards, and dinner out later.

    Happy birthday! 🥳 You’re old for 40 but you’ll soon be young for 50 👍

    And another plus, your feet, knees and ribs are all in good working order.

    Is your 50th year your 6th decade? Maffs 🤔 HB to the kid anyway.

    My replacement turbo console unit due for delivery today but no timeslot info as yet. Showing still as in depot, but... So the chances of a missed delivery when I head out soon for a pootle up, down and around?

    At least it's not raining. Yet.

    Slight head fuzz after lasts nights free grog but functioning OK on work stuff. Popping out later to get a new tyre fitted to Mrs. 666 runabout.

    Miss Ukraine is in the doghouse after going to London last night, getting back at 1am having forgotten her house keys. Mrs. 666 let her in and gave her the Paddington hard stare.

    I'm 49 today - so I've entered my 50th year, but I'm not yet into my 6th decade. At least as I understand it!

    Ride rided, quite a bit of moisture hanging in the air, not raining but always misting up the glasses.

    Tide was out!

    Yep, hanging on to my 40's, just. I think I'll just ignore 50 and enter a permanent middle-aged fugue state where I forget details of my age/birthday etc, until I can afford to retire, whereupon I'll designate myself as old, and sit in a chair doing crosswords.

    Don’t you sit in a chair doing crosswords already? 🤔

    True, but I will do even more when I am old and retired.

    Its probably for the best for quite a few of us.

    Evening folks,
    Nearly finished with work for this week.
    Hippy bathday B³, it's already been downhill for a while but you'll start picking up speed now :smiley:
    All sorts of exciting stuff working from home today. Neighbour had her step ladder stolen this afternoon, was putting christmas lights up, went in to get something and when she came out it was gone. Another neighbour had it on CCTV and shared it, thief was the driver that delivered something to the EPO. She just left feedback of 1 star saying delivery was ok but the driver is a thief. Don't think he'll be keeping his job for too long, I thought they just nicked the parcels.
    Nearly pub o'clock, I wouldn't normally but I feel I should celebrate B³'s birthday.

    All downhill indeed. Pah, I cycled up Putney Hill earlier. :)

    Have a pint of a winter ale. Cheers. Hic.
