    Absolutely honking out there. Horrible.

    Hound walk, family schizzle, turbo train, champagne. I think that’s it for the day.

    Modigliani and Soviet photography/propaganda art at the Tate Modern. Food market lunch. Probably some sogginess.
  • pinnopinno Posts: 40,699

  • So the weather forecast of 4 degrees and rain all day has changed to 7 degrees and dry.
    Will watch a re-run of the TDU

    Morning folks,
    Moist down here as well. I don’t envy Spinner as 44 is a bit warm but I wouldn’t mind a nice happy medium.
    Off to get my eyes tested today and then might go for a bite to eat.
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 9,039
    Good day all. Soggy ride in to work at stupid o'clock. Looking forward to day off tomorrow.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Functional threshold test done. Should not have opened that bottle of red last night. Upside, sat on turbo watching the sleet angling down outside and glad not out there.

    There are benefits to red wine, and dark chocolate etc etc

    I feel a bit sorry for spinner, 44C is mentally hot. I'm OK with drizzle for now.

    Done loads of jobs including stocking up on drink for my convalescence next week. Sounds like MOTD will be worth a watch tonight :)

    Absolutely gopping outside - has drained every morsel of motivation from my uber fine body.

    I am intending to replace the motivation with Pastis and champagne in a bit.

    Hard to find. They usually charge too much and spout nonsense. I reckon SG could provide the service cheap and cheerfully.

    Me successfully fitted inset wood burner me. Need to brick it up and then start the process of stonework for the chimney breast. £30 for 3 x 150mm stainless steel clamps. 'Kin 'ell.

    £580 Burner
    £69 Fire bricks
    £30 SS clamps
    £84 2m SS 316 grade flue and fire surround
    £5 RSJ.
    £427 Mountain ledge stone, stone mortar, delivery and VAT.
    + sundries.

    Holy shmokes.

    Tricky is 7 today but she's a little bit crook.

    Pizza and a nice bottle of Macon Villages* later.

    *White! That'll be interesting.

    Large bottle of Coors Lite done as it was blocking the milk in the fridge. Why we had Coors Lite I do not know.

    Pastis done.

    Red wine opening.

    Ooh, you lucky boozy buggers. You must report back on the Macon Pinno.
  • sungodsungod Posts: 13,351
    white with pizza? it's certainly allowed with bubbly, but otherwise, hmmm

    Been out for a late trip to look at ovens and fridges for the kitchen update. Joyful but it is needed. We CBA to cook so Thai take away it is, with more muscadet sevre et main for me. Cant complain.

    Surprisingly good especially for an impulse buy and only £6.49. It's always a lottery at that price.

    What can I say? It's rich, sweet but slightly dry. It will do nicely.

    I find I get a little dehydrated with red SG and i'm planning a pedal tomorrow morning. Besides, not really having the vino with the pizza.
    Pizza was home made.

    Where from Pinno? Your equivalent of Edwyn's, or a nationwide multiple?
    Homemade pizza dough as well? Mrs H3 is going through a breadmaking phase at the moment, which is most appreciated.

    Down to a chilly 28 overnight. :D

    Walk done early. Now listening to inane drivel on the radio. Country cricket reports. Bring me coffee or there may be violence soon.

    Thought £5.75 had been established as the benchmark where wine is no longer regarded as cheap.

    Back on the Pastis watching Midsomer Murders.

    Very, very nice bottle of Portuguese red was consumed.

    Home made dough.

    If Mrs H³ can make bread by hand, then she can make pizza dough. Want a recipe?

    Given UK duty, VAT, bottling, transport, producer profit, merchant profit, I think at £6 you're getting 50 pence worth of wine, £10 you're getting £3 of wine, £20 you're getting £6 to £7 of wine. £30 and upwards you are paying for producer/vineyard/mystique.
    So, the jump from the £6 bottle to the £10 to £12 bottle is where the biggest quality to price jump is. But it's all about your budget, and what you are willing to spend.

    She uses the dough hook on the kitchenaid she spent our wedding present vouchers on.
