    Damp and miserable here, maybe a run later if my knee stops aching.

    WFW, organised chaos…

    Run done after another night of the wife convincing me to drink.

    meetings and hopefully away at a reasonable time so I can meet some friends for a decent run with hills

    Morning les Kroumir

    Grey, chilly, as wot SG says.

    Today pack Rocky Rocket up as she's sold. Sniff. New beginning as a racing mower 😀

    Beans is AWOL the dodgy tramp. He used to be this pristine city slicker now he's a filthy tramp.

    Coffee.

    Morning

    2 degrees here when I got up. Bathroom and bike cleaned, now on second coffee wondering if I’ve got the energy to do anything after yesterday’s ride. Which I did mostly on my own as the other two in our not so slow group decided that they had enough after 20 miles.

    Beans is making the most of turning 3 and being able to do what he wants.

    Got to work today, forgot half my stuff.

    Need to get stuff done before going away tomorrow and people are putting meetings in my diary with a moments notice so nothing is getting done.

    Might cancel the gym later as I need to pack and generally get my shit together.

    Morning you Funsters!

    Actually rode the freakin' bike into work today for the first time in weeks if not months! God, was it hard. Also bloomin' cold. 4degrees when I set off. 6 on arrival. Still in winter cycling clobber. It's nearly May.

    On the upside, I feel 'king brilliant. Amazing what a burst of exercise does for the mind. Probably be feeling not so great if I have to ride back in the wet.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    Morning Munsters, was at work but felt 💩 so copped off and snuggled up with the mutt. Hopefully just chilled through and I'll warm up and feel better soon. Fark me it's chilly here and now damp as well.

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Only some very slight fuzziness after last night's beers in town, didn't help that the train got diverted and took an hour, bit of a pain. Just come up for air after a busy morning and knocking up some lunch to eat while I listen to some droning on in our online 'town hall'.

    post office inquiry livestream is fine entertainment again, lots of squirming and what boils down to "i can't recall why i lied"

    certainly more exciting that some recent road races

    by the time it gets to vennells's turn, could be a modern day damnatio ad bestias

    They'll be bred for fighting then they'll be on the banned dog list.


    But cool! Robot dog fights with flamethrowers!! Cool AF!

    Afternoon folks,

    Should be busy, but quite a lot of shirking taking place. I'm another year older and certainly feeling it after too much beer and curry last night. So I've been eating lots of cakes. My beautiful former assistant and a couple of the girls here bought me presents which is nice, 2 of them bought me booze and the other socks with bicycles on them. My boss bought me a mug with my job description on it, Shit Show Supervisor.

    Had to drive the EPO in this morning so no chilly wobble, but toasty and warm whilst sitting in traffic. I'd prefer the chilly wobble.

    I could do with a kip now, or some coffee and more cake...

    Arses! It's pee'ing down now. At least I'm in my waterproof winter boots (still) and my goretex jersey.

    Happy Birthday Mr V. Somebody at work must appreciate you to remember your birthday. The only thing I ever get is make sure you bring nice cakes in or the the beers are on me.

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    HB V. Another n+1!

    Today's work sesh was focussed on defence. Defence as in removing old fencing on the nature reserve. Pleasantly sunny intervals and dry. Def springtime for me.

    Happy birthday V. Don't worry, we've had a little whip round and there's a mug in the post from us too 😉

    Happy Burpday V.

    Probably would be with beer and curry. Bike riding should be avoided after imbibing the aforementioned for sure.
