    Morning les bachi-bouzouks des Carpates

    Blowing a hooley and pouring innit. B*stards.

    Beans has cabin fever and Shorty is trying to entertain him. He brought me a live mouse at silly o'clock last night that I couldn't catch but the trap got him/her overnight. I released him this morning. Tiny thing.

    Seeing new estate agent at 11.30.

    First, coffee.

    Morning

    Deluge free here at the moment. Had a slice of toast at 6:30 that’s the last food till who knows. I had packed my stuff to take with me to hospital. However Mrs W threw a wobbly that I had packed my stuff in a canvas shopping bag and the spare boxers I had packed the colour had run a bit. Something about she would be so embarrassed if someone had to help me on with said boxers give the state of them.

    Colourfast boxers with only the factory standard holes here today. Hope the op goes well.

    Car dropped off for MOT, randomly bumped into a friend on the way back out walking the dog so had a nice chat on the way back up.

    Might go the gym later after picking up the car.

    Mrongni to all the bad spellers out there.

    Cooler start. Nice ride to work. Feeling refreshed after nice hot shower.

    Good luck with the op Webboo2. Hope there is no need for them to go near the boxer dept. especially as they are looking at your shoulder. Anyway, stranger things have happened under anesthetic. You might wake up shaved with a hernia scar.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    Morning all. Good luck Mr W. Last day this wk and it's calm ish, keeping head down. Currently dry here but how long for I know not. After yesterday's wetness around here we don't need anymore. Still wet from last night's cross-country club run, at least the wetness washed the mud off the trainers.

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Afternoon Bracketeers,

    Up way too early for a slightly cool and overcast drive and pedal into The Big Smoke. Powered through the morning with coffee and Scotch Egg fuel, now stopping for lunch before round 2 of meetings. The ride back this evening should be a bit warmer so will ditch the jacket.

    You def haven't brought your 'summer' component with you. Piddling down here in CD, though was grey but dry over in Dumfries this forenoon. Should be less miserable from Friday onwards.

    Had better get some indoor fettling done, rather than just buxxer about on t'interweb.

    Afternoon folks,

    Another day of orifice based fun. Busy as always, talk of putting more work my way and would I be able to free up some time. I answered honestly, funny how honest answers can upset people. Were you being honest TLW?

    Had to drive in and drop the car in for service. Needs discs and pads, which I was expecting, only other issue is a CV gaiter so not too bad. Brakes will definitely be useful when driving down a few alps next month. Can wave at HD if he's in Menaggio as we pass.

    Good luck with the op and the undergarments Webboo.

    Picked the car up, that was an expensive bill, but would have been 4 figures were it not for discounted parts and mate's rates.

  • Wasn't too wet in the morning but went from damp to drookit a bit later, in dry hotel in CD now, deciding when we need go foraging for food.

    The skiddy ones will be for the next 6 weeks as I attempt to wipe my arse with wrong hand.

    Haha! Yeah, I recall that when I royally fecked my shoulder and damaged nerves into my right hand. Had to use left hand for every thing. You'd best get some wet wipes ready. It's gonna be messy for a while. Shaving was tricky too. Many nicks and cuts. Try signing a check with the wrong hand lol

    Fortunately I have a beard and who signs checks these days. Mind writing my appointments on the calendar was fairly challenging.
