    A few chores. Shopping for the boy. He’s interested in what he’s wearing now so could be expensive. Five Guys burger followed by cinema.

    On the train to spare my legs after yesterday's epic ride :) Not too many meetings which is good, so will crack on with a presentation to the Global Big Cheese who's over next month.

    Todays hound walk wasn’t too painful, so that’s a bonus.

    Work meh and maybe a gentle spin later

    The sh*t has hit the fan already.
    Hopefully the day can only get better.

    Got to start packing tonight but in the meantime, work stuff.

    Does he dress like a low grade criminal? The boy does, unless he's going to work. Maybe your boy is a bit younger.

    5 guys and cinema ain't cheap either. Potentially heavy day for the oconn wallet.

    Rode in to new office. Cold and headwindy. Hopefully warmer and tailwindy on the way home. Slightly new route at the work end, different bridge. Showers not as nice as my last place, and I have to bring my own towel/shower gel, but all fine.

    Seem to recall that phrase being used when Brian Clough punched a pitch invader in the face :)

    It's Seano's pet moths that I feel sorry for, they're going to be disturbed after a long slumber.

    Afternoon folks,
    Another day in the orifice, glad i managed to wobble in as a broken down van had caused traffic chaos. Decidedly fresh out there though, needed winter clobber for the ride in, should be significantly warmer on the way home. Boy has listed his Golf on the BayofShite, getting lots of chancers trying their luck, hopefully a few of the watchers will turn out to be serious buyers. No more outings for Seano this week having blown his budget on the first day of his holidays.
    Hope the work aspect of the new job is good B³, more importantly, any talent of note?

    After another taste test, there is very little difference between my homemade 20% fat mince smash burgers and 5 guys, apart from £40.

    Tracksuits and football shirts. But you can tell by the silly noises he makes and the way he hops and jumps about while walking, that he’s mostly harmless.

    Ok so far, I'm doing an impersonation of a sponge at the moment, or at least trying to, as I learn about how the business works.

    The older I get, the less I notice the talent. I suppose there's no shortage of women who could be described as easy on the eye, but I expect I'm 20-25 years older than most of them!

    I can imagine, hope it's all going well.
    I still notice, although I'm a good 30 years older than most of them. At least i realise I wouldn't have a cat in hells chance and don't pretend otherwise.

    We thought the boy was harmless until he metamorphosed from a chubby, geeky little kid into a lanky poundshop roadman about 2 years ago.

    I like a burger from the butcher done medium on the outdoor gas grill, on a toasted bun with cheese, fried onion, tomato, pickles, ketchup and a biggish dab of english mustard. All other burgers bow down.

    Afternoon
    Another sunny but cold day here, chores done, dogs walked and bike ridden. Now watching the Tour of the Basque Country, I’ve ridden up the road they are on at the moment which is the only thing to keep me interested at the moment.
    There’s not a lot happening.
