Off to Heathrow in the back of a cab. Early flight to Stockholm awaits me. No lounge bubbly for me.

    Poor hobkinb :(

    Cycling into a local branch to dump my bike for a service, it will be dirtier than Jordon by the time it gets there

    Later is the first on many events for the eldest birthday, with dinner out with his grandma - going to be an expensive week

    Morning, currently contemplating chasing 4 legged member of family around the garden for a sample for the sodding vet. It's wet and dark and cold so will be fun, not. Chilling at home with start of man flu waiting for new light to be delivered. Anything else can do one.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Hoppy, it's late November and you've managed to pick a trip to a place that's even colder and dingier than here :) Don't worry though, the when it comes to tax the Swedes are more of a pushover than a one legged girl. And don't walk into lamp posts when you're rubbernecking over there.

    Into the office to deal with tax stuff and minions - unfortunately neither are Swedish.

    Morning
    Good pedal into the office today, I think the tailwind helped. I think my bike's arrived at the office cleaner than when it left home as the spray has washed some of the mud off.
    Currently watching the guy outside seeing how many wheelie bins he can get on the tail lift of his van.

    I was going in the opposite directions :( and worse, not cycling home
  • Morning All
    I don't think I will ever form a bond with my captors at work. I might escape later, though.
    Happy hump day, everyone.

    Gaffer tape a plastic bag to his rear end?

    Hoppy - go get yourself a few pints of real Guinness here (and some nosh\:

    ...and then go on a pub crawl in Gamla Stan but don't fall in the sea. Although brackish, it's bit chilly at this time of year.

    Ditto gopping here. Meh.

    Laters.

    Where's HaydenM?
    Has a tree fallen on his head? Perhaps that'll teach him for shouting at them.

  • 2 days of small people running around the house and several bottles of wine mean I'm not at my best today.

    Fillet steak rossini for lunch with some rosemary potatoes :)

    Hell yeah
  • I was thinking of bringing one of those 250ml bottles of red wine into work to have with it but as I have red wine induced fuzz as it is it might not be the best idea.

    How long do you give a webex before giving up?
    So far I've had someone singing softly to me, toddlers reading to me, tapping of keyboards but the meeting I'm meant to be in still doesn't seem to have started.

    Filthy conditions so stuck indoors again, without the benefit of steak or red wine so far, in 250ml size or larger. Admin stuff, house insurance renewed with same company for better deal that originally offered. Tick.

    Right then, on to the rest of that day. Perhaps I'll go fishing again and see if bait gets nibbled by a super-sensitive soul.

    Dammit!

    "Storm Diana" is in what can be classed as full effect I think down here, stiff breeze has blown all the water fowl to one side of the lake. No trampolines, wheelie bins or felled trees I'm aware of. Onwards to pub later me thinks.

    just back from osteo - my body is officially fecked. its a bit worrying when even the osteo starts laughing at you and tells you perhaps its time for some surgery and a new job.

    then again, after an hour of her doing her stuff i feel a brazilian times better.

    now sitting in a car park before going back to work then onward to more work.

    Its not a storm in Bucks for sure just a little windy, think its meant to be worst for wales an the north from what I gather.
  • Its black here now, but that might just be because it's dark.
