    Morning All. Carpet being fitted this morning so hopefully once finished im out on nice bike as its going to be nice. Dog walking duties handed back to eldest. Pub trip laters with Mutt and eldest whilst xmas lights switched on in the town and they let off the equivalent of a 20 minute artillery barrage.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, Brakes for new build re build build should appear tomorrow, gives me time to faff tomorrow an strip the bike, excited inner child is firmly present.

    quiet day hopefully doge has been walked and office is being attended debating lunch current winner seems to be some weird German Donor Kebab place who proudly proclaim to be the original kebabs, I somewhat doubt this...

    Later some form of fish supper and geeking out with new bike parts.

    I may be from The North but any restaurant where you have to queue for your food is a big no-no for me.

    Free meal in Manchester tonight courtesy of one of our suppliers, and the staff shall wait on us.

    I agree, then they expect a ferkin tip

    Mrs likes carvery,s but I can't stand them. I want my food and drink bringing to me when I go out. Sod queing it's bad enough in the pub having to wait to be served.

    Before I moved our then local Chinese was trialling delivery robots...

    Now, you are stating to see quite a few of these trundling round the city centre. We also have the Santander Cycles scheme, and another one that has eBikes and potentially another soon with scooters, the kind kids use thinking they are cool. All this on a shared foot/cycle path.
    Now though these things are being trialled and due to use the same path's.

    Think I may just drive if I go up there, seems safer.

    I organise (send an email around) our team lunch at Nandos every month.
    While I was out this morning someone went round and told everyone it was cancelled so not happy as I'd rushed back and cancelled something else for it.

    Had another last minute work jolly this morning, 3rd this week. Managed to turn it into a run which meant exercise with daylight for a change.

    Afternoon folks,
    Just been to the cafe for some dead pig, had to eat more in preparation for drinking beer tonight. That's my excuse anyway. Straight from work to the pub so I will make up for TLW's lack of pub visit. Thankfully not going to Nando's, I went once and thought it was a bit sh!t to say the least. May just be a curmudgeonly old git.
    Happy Sweaty's day Piña and HM, wherever he's got to.
    Tomorrow is Christmas decoration avoidance.

    Just helped wife buy me the correct Wera allen key set for Christmas by doing it myself :D 8 minutes from desk to Toolstation and back to Desk. A new PB if I'm not mistaken.

    'Tis a thing of great beauty. As is my wife.

    Must remember to expedite reimbursement...

    Very sorry to hear this as I gather you've been surrounded by this sh1te for some time. Best wishes from a random bloke off a cycling forum.

    It will get better. Especially as you've (understandably) got a year ahead of yourself there.

    Oops, fat fingers.
    Cheers chaps, be glad you only know me virtually. Hopefully that means you’re safe.
    Wife is insisting I go out, I’m resisting.

    You’re resisting?

    I’m confused

    Ok, I admit you are doing the right thing
  • big_harvbig_harv Posts: 512
    NO! Wife is spot on. Go out.

    But stay safe.

    Nah; he's got terrible body odour but worse than that - he's got a Mazda.
    Gopping drive back but the plus side is that the old banger didn't break down.

    Commiserations VN, keep yer chin up mate; helps the beer go down easier.

    Laters.

    I’m a bad man, I’ve agreed to go out under duress. I am going to drive and come back early, but she insisted so who am I to argue?

    Chin up V and get a taxi it's safer. Take it steady from another random guy out in the ether about to go for a beer to.

    I did wonder why all the other customers in Costas were moving away from us.

    Anyhow, I made it home with both of my kidneys so I'll count that as a win. Likewise, drive home over the Pennines was censored and p1ssing with rain. Bloody West side of the country.

    Now got the cider open and deciding what frozen food to eat tonight...
