    Morning

    Uneventful day planned so something is bound to kick off somewhere. Off on a road trip after work and still need to pack, including a bike.

    WFH - hence the slow start

    Later may go to running club or continue to rest and try and avoid man flu

    Morning, I’ve just fitted a new vertical blind , a few brownie points for me as Jane said it needed fitting by a professional ( obviously she still doesn’t know what I am capable of doing after all these years ) cup of tea next followed by a good bike ride

    Off to the gym to work on physio dictated shoulder strengthening exercises. Chiropractor session tomorrow, will be interesting if she finds improvement, meaning the pain will have been worth it.

    Afternoon folks,
    Thursday morning hangover not too bad today thankfully. Another busy day trying to buy stuff but getting bogged down fixing screw ups. Managed to wobble in this morning and it was neither too cold nor too windy, that was a welcome change. The left hand shifter seems to have taken a knock and was a fair bit lower than the right. Noticed it as soon as I opened the garage and it made the ride rather uncomfortable. Considering the bike has been in the garage since Tuesday night and nobody else has been in there it must have taken a knock on Tuesday. So how come I didn't notice it when riding home on Tuesday? Bar tape very shabby, need to give the bike a lot of tlc.

    Might have to do a Sungod and fly out somewhere to meet punters shortly, if only a GMC footed the bill for bubbles and nuts rather than my little corp doing it.

    Trying to buy something that our new partners lost out on twice in the last few years, been told not to waste time on it but I've found a glaring hole in their modelling so f*ck them. We/I'll make a tidy 2% fee on it so their loss...

    Looking forward to the weekend, new bike day on Saturday!

    how much would you pay to get a medium sized tree cut down? cherry tree, fairly spindly.

    Afternoon All,

    Spoke with the medics and while nothing is imminent enough to warrant me dropping everything and going up today, things are still not looking rosy. They're trying to get her to drink fluids and I'm going to drive North straight from work tomorrow evening once the traffic clears. Gives me a bit more time to sort some censored out.

    Other than that, busy day on the corporate hamster wheel.

    some imposter has clearly taken over mf's account

    mf would simply chop it down, set fire to it, and chuck it over the fence

    Medium = what trunk girth, height? Debris chipped on site or taken away, as opposed to being set on fire etc etc?

    Cherry trees are not all that big 'n' tough.

    bizarrely, this is actually the plan but i offered a friend some cash to chop it down so want to pay him something decent. was thinking 75 to 100.

    chop down, chop up, stick in his van, deliver to my pad, set fire to, lob into next door's garden.

    Cherry trees are not all that big 'n' tough.

    maybe 20ft high, same girth as a TDNFNATN - you could cuddle it very easily.

    Leaving aside the various #s, if is a pal doing you a favour, that size of tree is a piece of proverbial to drop, most time will be taken up in the clearing up, yeah £100 cash in pocket sounds ok. Would cost a wodge more to get a proper arborist in to do it, as is a small job but have to factor in travel times, opportunity costs and suchlike. Oh and cherry wood is quite nice for burning, after a while.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,380
    coolio - grazie. good to think i'm thinking along the right lines.

    chainsaw we get from work so no costs there. was also going to chuck in a slab of beer and a bottle of JD for his hassle. i'll supply tourniquets and dressings.

    Just finished cleaning some epic sized bird sh1ts off Stropteens Polo, the sort that really need some elbow grease to remove as she let them get cracked on. So much fun I'm going to have a drink!
