    Fine day here. Sat in airport on way back to finish the packing up and leaving thing. Airport packed with holidaymakers. I may need a drink or two.

    Morning

    Nice here (cold by dry) but couldn't be bothered going on the bike today, maybe tonight (probably not).

    After yesterday's failed commute intervals I managed to do some in the pain cave later on. Was going to repeat today but realised it's the delayed Christmas play for the youngest - such fun

    1deg and fog another dreary cold day .. .bring back the clear and ice and crisp

    Other than that the new TP link plug works so much better than the flaky WeMo I was fighting with before !

    Dentist (again) then work. Just dealing with stuff from people in time zones well ahead of ours, although I may delay sending the reply so they can't get back to me 'till Friday.

    Good luck with the rest of the move WS.

    Morning folks,
    It's Thursday and I feel rough, the only problem is I didn't go to the pub last night because I still feel rough as a badgers aris. Just got interrupted by another pesky customer, I suppose I should be nice to him as he spends lots of money and he has my frame waiting to send over. It would be so much easier if he checked things for himself rather than phoning me to check everything.
    Coughing is still a regular feature of my day, just not as regular as it was earlier in the week. I definitely sympathise with SG. Hope I feel better tomorrow as we are supposed to be going to an awards thing at the lad's old school, probably drinks afterwards.

    Morning All, get well soon to all who are suffering with Aussie, French or Japanese flu or even worse Man flue. Currently chilling at home contemplating getting bike out as fairly dry. Shopping duties later for the wife, got to keep in her good books as its her birthday Saturday.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Bored - meetings/year end/position papers/control frameworks/hybrid mismatches.
    Still bright eyed and bushy tailed - probably annoyingly so.

    Made it home. Stopped for Thai food on the way, which was quite good. Only issue was the place smelled like someone had ordered a special of stir-fried sweat socks with barbecued knicks pad. Yuk.

    SG's cough can't be that bad - hasn't affected his typing.

    If it was something like this however, kshkgj cgjjg sjvhvsadkjlkjdgs kjkerw, then I would be worried.

    Sun's out. Looking at newly found PET data sheets for the older new banger. Then I can snooker that Welsh bloke that the Beer quality control bloke got me in touch with.

    Onwards and upwards to Wickes in Dumfries on Saturday and Magnet in Ayr on chewsday trying to take advantage of the January sales vis'a'vis PPP.

    Laters.

    Been shopping for 4 x 3m 150mm dia pipes, a manhole, several collars, bends, joints and tees all for hiding in a trench this weekend.

    As an aside, cloud cuckoo land of the day:

    £300 for a cassette is now "affordable"

    Seriously what the actual phuckkk? Who spends £300 on a cassette?

    That would definitely make eeking those extra miles out of a chain a false economy. :shock:

    Thank you Stevo. Looking forward to it now. Stopped by new place this morning for a reminder. Still can't quite believe we've bought it. :D

    Sounds rather idyllic - as long as you're not an oasis in the middle of 'banjo country' then I'm sure all will be fine :)

    3/5 as well.

    For those money I would want it to be made of pure unobtanium and ride the bloody bike by itself....

    Good news / bad news for our eldest son at the weekend.

    bad news: looked like he'd broken his ankle playing football Friday evening. It was his birthday too!
    First thing Saturday I took him and his GF to A&E, told them to expect a wait and drove home.
    good news: he was x-rayed within 5 minutes and out again in under an hour. Not broken but a bad ligament tear. Off his tits on codeine and failing to control a pair of crutches. In hindsight I should have insisted he buy a lottery ticket.
    bad news: he'd been planning to go shopping for a new X-box with his birthday dosh - which would have been handy for somebody unable to walk for several days
    good news: Currys had a better and cheaper bundle than the one he'd been after, and next day delivery to his door.
    Happy, hoppy bunny!
    bad news: he seems to have picked up a nasty sounding chest infection, almost certainly from A&E since the only other place he's been is on the sofa with his leg in the air...

    His ankle has gone some interesting shades of yellow, green and blue now, which coordinate well with the censored he's coughing up...

    Thankfully, youth is a condition which cures itself.

    How's that knee of yours doing Keef? You haven't mentioned it in a while.

    ^^^this

    having coughed up several lungs so far, i'm in a foul mood

    tried baiting fascists in the brexit thread, but it's poor sport eviscerating the witless and tbh i really can't be bothered what such inconsequential twunts think, what i really want is to track down whoever gave me this foul pestilence so that i can wreak misery and despair on their miserable selves, thrice

    in mrs s's absence been listening to frankenstein audiobook, ye gods it's tedious, the creature is whinier than a whiney thing that's whiney, tf it's over, dracula is moving along much faster, plus it has hot vampire babes

    time for port, i must numb the pain

    You post that banal drivel after SG's supremely eloquent and highly metaphorical post?! :roll:

    It's a good job he didn't use capital letters and punctuate it properly or else it may have been the post to end all posts.
