    Half day as eldest has got to go to some waste of everyone’s time appointment. Hopefully finish in time to enjoy the afternoon

    Morning

    Minimal sleep which isn't good after spending most of yesterday riding, and still got yesterday's headache.

    I think I'll be spending the day cleaning bikes rather than riding :(

    On the train into town, do half a day's work then off to Heathrow. Should arrive at the hotel in Prague in time to hit the bar.

    Morning, dry and dull here. Refuse to do anything today apart ride a bike and beer with mates tonight. On a high note, my expenses went through with no problems for a change.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    The beers are on you then?

    We've had a new expenses system at work. On the training last week we were essentially told to reject everything for even the slightest error.

    Mrs P "VAT on nuts, tissues and orange juice? " after this mornings shop.
    Might be painting callipers today. Will be meeting with solicitor - but she's easy on the eye which is small compensation for cost.
    Not many phone calls recently. It's either things are going smoothly or they've gone mammaries up on the recycling front. I expect it's the latter.

    Has HM bought that tent or some buckets?

    Laters.

    Morning, feeling of an impending illness in my head today (cold brewing) a chorus of coughing and rustle of pills so patient zero needs to be located and dettoled within an inch of their lives.

    Rolled in on No.2 bike again gear cables have gone a little stiff for no real reason, otherwise really enjoying the 1X life, what to do with the now redundant left shifter, cant really remove it from what I can tell, meh it works I have an old cable dropper I could hook in for the hell of it.

    The black Friday spam has kicked in as well my inbox is now being flooded with random censored at slightly lower prices than normal.

    Food, Coffee an nap is the plan today, nap wont happen may replace that with a walk.

    Morning ladies,

    No tea or coffee yet, world is unbalanced.

    Various builder types over this morning for work/quotes, made the bike a winter bike in the process by finding the old brake pads and taking the carbon rims off.

    Pinno, an easy on the eye lawyer sounds dangerous

    I was hoping to off set costs by 'personal services'.

    Surely that would increase the cost? :)

    If he puts it through his limited company as I advised him to, sure.

    Son's taxi service has dropped me off 2nd pint on its way as 1st one didn't touch the sides. Suspect I may be bladdered by return taxi journey.

    I ended up slightly the worse for wear as expected. Was talking drivel when I got home so was sent to bed in disgrace apparently. Mates wife texted my missus to see if I was as bad as he was. Oops, that's it for another month I suspect.
