    Same here, although only partly blue at the moment.

    Riding motivation aplenty here, my body just doesn't want to bend this morning :neutral:

    Might see if a cup of tea helps.

    I wonder if @darkhairedlord 's curry has turned up yet?

    Or the missing Hermes van?

    Morning from a cool east Midlands factory. Day 2 of 4 with the undesirable noddy squad. Group management changes afoot. Several sideways and outwood bound moves at top level.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    thought it might be sunnier, but after a promising start the cloud rolled in on a strong breeze reminiscent of a more tabbyean clime, though lacking any warmth

    on the plus side, tubs survived crunching through the broken glass of the embankment cycle lane without even a nick

    went past hermes' shop but no sign of their van

    If it was Hermes delivering, that curry is probably in a ditch somewhere in the general vicinity of DHL's house.

    Lie in, porridge, coffee so far. Walk dogs soon and maybe do a few bits 'n' pieces later on.

    Forecast here said clear skies no rain and 16 degrees. Went out for a ride earlier and it drizzled o the top of the hill but otherwise accurate.
    It's just absolutely lashed it down now :confounded:

    Currently sunny here, bike ride enjoyed but obviously thanks to Hermes delivering the fixes for garmin my ride doesn’t exist

    Petrol powered garden stuff with breaks to discuss family soap opera - pub later

    Nothing from hermes or wiggle on my order, curry turned up eventually. Just in the throne room recycling it now.
    No temperature or cough yet so must have survived last weeks trip to Paultons park unscathed.
    Have been mostly dragging out some diy jobs over the weekend.

    Afternoon folks,
    Arrived at holiday place earlier than planned around 7am. Had a kip before sorting things out and going to mate's bar for food. Now unwinding for all I'm worth.
    This place is absolutely stunning but I could do with a 4x4 to get here, the last 5 miles are on a dirt road that isn't on the map. Secluded is an understatement.

    Afternoon, nice 50 mile spin doing spinning things. Very dull an chilly to start then just as I got back it came over dark again so timed it well. No Hermes vans or errant Curry's.

    Bacon roll now and do some bits in the garage I think.

    Because garmin is still down and you need proof that you didn't just imagine going out :smile:

    Have you lost your Garmin usb cable?

    Someone sent me a link to a faq page that Garmin had set up. The server was down when I tried to load it :lol:

    That's why I don't use my Garmin anymore, there pants.

    Ironically I was involved in the decision to block USB ports because of the cyber security risk

    Last week I plugged my phone into my work laptop to get some photos off it and it said access was blocked.
    Plugged my Garmin in though and it was fine.
