    Morning

    Looks nippy out but clear and bright. Should go out and make the most of it before the weather turns.

    Just saw a Skoda advert with Matt Stephens, trying to sell the car based on it's cycling pedigree which seemed a bit strange.

    Meh. Woke up to the living room floor covered in Sparrow feathers. Thank you very much Beans.

    It's clear, chilly and windy but not on the US scale of chilly and windy. D'ya think the silly b4stards will now start saying 'that there's proof that there ain't no global warmin''?

    Morning all. Trust you've all survived Christmas with the usual over indulgence of chocolate and alcohol. Currently sorted out with loads of cycling themed socks and running socks. New track pump from Santa to replace the one the naughty elf broke 😡. Dog being walked shortly by the rest of the reluctant family, then visiting grandson for his birthday party later. Enjoy the festive blow out, PS bloody freezing 🥶 outside again.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I think they'd be better off just calling it climate change.

    I know it's caused by global warming, but the warming bit suggests it only causes hot weather.

    Partridges and pear trees are probably a bit hard to come by up your way so he got you the next best thing.
    Expect a pair of doves tomorrow and 3 hens the day after :smiley:

    Day 5 expect a heist.

    I can see blue sky. 😎 Positive change from yesterday's grunge. Still feeling weak as bleep. Think I'll try a short turbo sesh in a bit, see what happens. There has to be an end to this lurgie spell, shirley?

    Recovering from a day of excess, still childless so will try to persuade Mrs seano into some more debauchery as it’s my birthday.

    Survived yesterday pretty well. Spent a bit of this morning retrieving junior hound who decided to go on Safari after finding a hole the foxes had made under the fence. Will walk the dogs soon, then it's a trip for supplies as we have in laws descending tomorrow...

    Morning folks, traditional slow start is being enjoyed. Lad was up early to join girlfriend at her grandparents in the midlands. Going to spend the day pottering, might go for a walk and visit my aunt and uncle whilst checking on the old dear's gaff.
    Happy birthday Seano, good luck getting your birthday treat

    Pig based breakfast, now a walk and a few pints before going to a bbq (65 of us so should be fun)

    Happy birthday seano MHR

    Had a bit of a tidy at the allotment this morning. Enjoying a hot cuppa now out of that cold wind. Then it'll be a pedal to some of my locals to say the words and enjoy the ale ;)

  • Happy Birthday seano! Been to Argos and Tesco in Minehead. Unpacked that lot. About to stuff all the cardboard in the car ready for a tip trip. Brother and mother etc arriving shortlyish.

    Went out for a walk, found a new coffee shop on the way back so totally worth it.
    Cold in the wind on the tops, too hot back down at base camp.

    Happy b-day Shaun the C. Just watched on iPlayer your documentary from Christmas Eve, you had a busy time on Mossy Bottom farm 😳

    A small uptick day: for the first time in 2 weeks managed some exercise, a (albeit short) turbo sesh. This lurg is on its way. Get tae ye wee bam.

    Evening all. Happy Birthday Seano. Hope you got extra prezzies.
    Lurge Diary: Day 3761 - there seems infinitesimally small marginal improvements. Fam out visiting other fam. Home alone. On sofa with paracetamol, brandy and wartime films. Bliss.
