    Morning, dog already walked, breakfast and tea consumed, another cuppa whilst I browse the internet, then more decorating
    Thick fog here at the moment, hope it lifts so I can get out for an hour or so

    Morning. Dropping family off at work and college for a change then nice coffee, followed by the cooking dentist. I hate the dentist, was ok till they swapped my usual one for a female sadist with a figure to die for, but about a welcome as a bull in a china shop. Beer later and Son's taxi service home. Result.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning folks,
    Man flu still lingering belligerently, seems a particularly nasty strain. Mind you the old man is off for chemo today so I really shouldn't grumble.
    Very glad it's Friday although I suspect my weekend will consist of doing very little. Supposed to be out tonight to some awards thing at the lad's old school. Just need to get through the day without going postal, tempting though it may seem. Might just slaughter a couple of people for sh!t and giggles.
    Roll on the weekend...

    If it's anything like mine it's been over a week now. I'm more than a little fed up with it now. Haven't had a drink or pedal in over a week.

    Fighting with IT passwords - I have no idea why one day they work perfect the next they just reject you.

    Why do telephones and IT never work properly?

    Drizzly out. Coughing, but not feeling bad. Bike needs a clean. I need to find and charge my beard trimmer.

    Mrs H3 off out tomorrow, so going to do something with mini, though not sure what.

    Grey and cold out, makes a change from yesterday's snow capped mountains above a cloud inversion as an office! OH's blood test is back, appointment urgently moved forward and they have sent her home from work as she's really worried. Depending on what state she is in after the appointment I might take the afternoon off, won't be anything we can't manage so we can get drunk

    I'm currently being bollocked for a £200 excess data bill at work, hooray for shite contracts

    Foggy morning. Burger for lunch I think today. Pub for dinner.
    New pup has been born so the Date is now excited to be a dog owner in 8 weeks, see how excited she is at 6am when it is pissing down.

    May have a run at Degla tomorrow morning, may just sleep instead.

    MF because you work for the government.

    Oh good, appointment cancelled as the results haven't actually come back yet, cue OH calling me in tears. Probably standard process but she doesn't quite see it like that :roll:

    Keep calm.

    Try a pot brush and some bleach on your throat SG. If that doesn't work, rub Beetroot all over.

    Meh. Just spent £5k on a new kitchen for PPP but it will be fitted for me and I did get it in a 50% off everything sale and it will have solid Walnut worktops. One less thing for me to do.

    Must go to a clinic appt. to 'discuss my long term condition' :roll: I'm worried if I piddle in the urine sample bottle, it will just dissolve.

    Laters.

    Every day that passes on here reminds me how glad I am that I had the freebie flu jab at work :)

    Strifey is already trying to spend the tax refund on a combination of kitchen and driveway :roll: although tbh she was wanting to do them anyway. Roll on the weekend.

    I did that once, got totally lost trying to follow the waymarked route and when I got back on it directed me through a swamp even though there was a nice fire road parallel to it, about 5 m away :roll:

    Just had a phone call from TDV saying that we've bought a new flat.

    I honestly don't know whether I can be bothered to go and have a look at it.

    Yarp, it's probably just some iron deficiency or something but she's not very happy. Better have a short day and go for a beer...

    Indeed, I don't think this is flu. Interesting piece on Today as I was driving* in this morning about the flu jab.
    The flu virus is pretty much constantly mutating and goes around the world mutating as it does so. So our flu jabs are based on what was in the southern hemisphere in the months previous. The virus then makes it's way back north and they hope they have got the jab about right. It's only effective in about 75% of cases because of the way the virus mutates. The vaccine is grown in hens eggs, 3 doses of vaccine can be made in each egg. They need a lot of eggs. :shock:

    * Still driving because of this poxy bug.

    Can't you just eat the egg instead of getting the jab?

    I guess that doesn't work if you cook the egg.

    Oooh. Chainset has turned up.

    105 for the utterly foul weather bike, £30 from Merlin. I can't buy a chainring for that.

    Ok, it's silver not black that would be preferential, but I'll sling a mate a tenner to powder coat it.

    Overall though, as its Shimano and 105, I'm relatively unimpressed. Would be utterly gutted if I had paid full or nigh on full retail for it and was thinking that 105 was special.

    You are correct. Nothing ever ever works around here.

    Neither: unfortunately and no, she works for a living :)

    1 bedroom place we're just going to rent out - get a management company in, don't intend to ever go there if I can help it. It's daaaaaaarn saaaaarth, outside the borders, so a bit scared for a small country valley boy like me.

    Better investment than banks/premium bonds, too busy to start investigating other stuff, old fashioned bricks and mortar investors are us, see.

    According to Newsnight, the current flu jab is not very effective against the current Aussie strain.

    Enthusiastically slurping down fiery ginger cordial mixed with sparkling water. :roll:

    Bought some very reduced but still pricey Rapha bib shorts in the sale to see whether they are as good as the Assos ones I bought last year. Looking for bargainous summer jerseys, though not Rapha ones.
