    Morning. After a decent weekend, junior was up vomiting at 1-ish this morning. Mrs GTi has a massive, life affecting phobia about this so is in full on panic mode. I’m having to take the day off, he’s asleep on the sofa bless him.

    So today, it’s new mattress, duvet, sheets and pillows for him because there’s no question of cleaning stuff and keeping it.

    I have to say, cleaning vom from a high sleeper bed is a fun experience!

    We had two with that last week. Fortunately wifey is a good vom cleaner.

    I think it’s something he ate. He’s chucked up once, in an impressive amount, but is reporting no further issues or dodgy gut feeling. Fingers crossed

    Reminds me of the time many moons ago on a skiing holiday when it was a case of sharing a room in a chalet with bunk beds. After a rather heavy night, mate on the top bunk decided he was going to heave and was making a few noises. Mate on the bottom bunk stuck his head out to see what was wrong and got a face full :o:D

    Wheeeee. No need to pedal this morning - a few wheel wrenching gusts at side streets, but it aint no thing. Not cycling back tonight - leaving dinner, hopefully the wind will have abated by tomorrow evening.

    FTFY
    The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind.

    Rather shamefully, with a belly full of red wine, lager and baguette, I did this in a youth hostel in San Sebastian.
    The guy underneath was this obsessive compulsive yank who packed 7 pristine white T shirts and 3 pairs of jeans. He would meticulously fold them everyday.
    The slop landed on him and on his T shirts... I was an inch away from getting a beating but the (almost resident SA surfers) saved me and thought this was hilarious.
    They were clapping and cheering when I walked red faced and hungover into the breakfast area.
    I had to pay a fine and leave.

    Well you are silly: there are things called 'mattress protectors'.
    We have always used them.

    Not much happening apart from solicitor calls and wind.
    It's also breezy outside.

    Anyhow, morning all. Stayed off the bike and took the train in as it's a minions leaving drinks tonight. Will pedal later in the week when I'm back from my little mid-week trip to the Norther Shires.

    Morning
    Feel a bit weary after yesterdays ride. Might need to up my game once this weeks [email protected] weather passes, just finished the cleaning. Might take the dogs for a walk to undo my good work re the clean floors.
    Cycling viewing wise it’s pretty poor, Tour of Taiwan not the most exciting race going..

    Morning folks,
    WFH so I had an easy gravity assisted commute down the stairs, definitely a bit blowy out there today. Got physio and quack's appointment this afternoon, hopefully will get me sorted a little better. Enjoyed responding to a stupid question earlier, asked for clarification on something, got a very terse reply saying the answer to my question was in the subject of the email. Even though I wasn't in the orifice I think I heard the penny drop from here as a grovelling email followed a few moments later correcting the mistake in the subject of the email.
    Thankfully no signs of vomitting around here.

    Yep there are. But don’t underestimate Mrs GTi’s phobia. She’d be chucking it out anyway. Junior looks like nothing at happened now, watching kids TV. And I’m avoiding a conversation about how he could still be infectious. I try to avoid feeding (🤣) the worst of it

    Is it only a vomit phobia? Or do other things/fluids set the phobia off?

    Currently sat on my backside as per the last week. Had a decent outing to the shops yesterday and didn't knock anything over with y crutches.
    Nothing exciting to report but I have come up with a theory which was formulated whilst watching Gogglebox on Friday.

    There was a snippet of a swingers party on there which made heavy references to pineapples and people of this persuasion.
    And someone on here has a thing about said spike topped fruit...

    Just vomiting. Emetophobia or something. I keep telling her to get some counselling or CBT for it because there are times where it absolutely rules our lives

    I bet Seano is relieved for you if his concerns are what I think they were.
    I'm now sat in the waiting room having seen the physio, doc next. Been given some exercises to do, follow up in a fortnight. Let's see what the quack has to say, suspect not much to be done but stopping the EPO fretting about me will be good.

    What you need is the

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Shorty did a netball competition today.
    Seems there are far too many rules to netball.

    First game her school team 1 won, 1 - 0. (keeping up?).
    Second game they won 3-0 and Shorty scored all 3 as well as passing to a team mate to shoot when it was easier for her to have a go.

    Say 'Well done Shorty'.

    That said, Mrs. 666 has just asked me to buy her some soup on the way home as she's not feeling well...

    She definitely doesn't trust your cooking (if you actually offered),

    I wasn't offered the option. At least she hasn't got gut rot, just dose of the lurgy.

    I've heard about the people that went to his school, you'd be appalled to hear some of the stories.
