    Morning

    Have woken up with a sore head, no alcohol was involved. Hopefully a quick bike ride will clear it.

    Have got a meeting with a client and some others later, could get interesting but that's the day sorted. Might see if I can roll down on my bike instead of walking.

    Morning. Work me nah, not today. Taking OH to eye clinic for a check up then procure paint etc ready for some decorating. Night ride and booze later I suspect. Enjoy your Monday folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Work. Busy formulating a plan to become supreme ruler of the company after a vacancy opened up. Met in a layby on Friday night to secure the support of my line manager. All very exciting... Unfortunately I have a ton of proper work to be doing also, looking forward to the weekend, might take friday off

    Because that does not sound at all suspicious!

    Dull one here cloudy but sunny, though cant work out where the suns coming from so its probably a lie. Casual wobble in on shiny No.2 bike I got bored an polished the hell out of the bars an stem so probably good its cloudy.
    Otherwise a rather meh day, quite warm for November, but meh.

    We did happen to be at the layby at the end of a work meeting anyway but that doesn't sound as exciting... Someone important has handed their notice in and I want the job, unfortunately it's against the back drop of a mid merger power struggle at many different levels (which I don't want to be involved in). It's basically the cold war, I should write a novel.

    Hmm. County Council have just decided that the whole of the south of the county is going to become a 20mph zone because it will make people walk or cycle more.

    Filling in the potholes and building some pavements (and fewer cars parked on them) would work better.

    We have no idea of what actually might need to happen/be done to get that promotion.

    Drizzly, mild and very grey-misty smurry.

    Gah. I'm hungry again. I have no idea why. I haven't eaten for at least 30 minutes.

    Laters.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day today which is good, unfortunately it was working which will upset Piña. Off out to the pub for beer and pizza shortly with the family.

    If it doesn't upset you as well, then there's something definitely wrong.
    Did you get promoted upwards or sideways?

    Sideways, at my request. Sick to death of customers nd some aspects of management.
    Thankfully rid of the things that annoyed me, busier but less grief.

    A change is as good as arrest.

    Time to move. We only tolerate these tree hugging 20 zones because its usually faster than the traffic speed most of the time.

    Busy day here as well and quite productive too. Pinno won't like me for that.

    Working on it. This is the place where they are taking grant money for cycling, to rip up cycle lanes...

    Rushed home from work for a webex thing, but looks like the organiser hasn't turned up.

    No arrests as no meeting in lay-bys.

    You been on Rue Dunquerqe again?

    I think the Eurostar on board nosh has been very poor this year. Going to have a word actually.
