    Morning All. Today will be spent doing very little other than pandering to the OH. No diy today as yesterday's diy nearly killed me, painting whilst clinging to the side of the house in 35 degree heat wasn't fun.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Well that's just silly Oxo. I suppose you were painting in white as well?

    Glorious day today. Humph. Had not anticipated this and a ride would have been great but other plans were made.
    Better get to Jewson's whilst they are still open.

    Not glorious here as the forecast suggested but it's not raining and it's not boiling hot which is probably better for a race later on.

    Warm but not too sunny so not scorching, just nice. Currently chilling in my local caff for lunch in between getting supplies. Exercise and a zoom call with some mates later on.

    30 plus around me so currently suffering. Managed to leave OH getting her retail therapy fix whilst i have a minute or 2 chilling.

    Boiling hot here on the turbo. Had to wring my gloves out and dangerously leave them in direct sunlight for a while.
    Bombing around on real tarmac was much cooler with the breeze. Many muppets out and about today - in cars, on bikes and on foot.

    Whilst driving OH around today I can honestly say that most roads full of cyclists around Cannock and East Staffs area. Never seen so many even on sportive days.

    :D

    I can't quite remember. But I know that it's much warmer out there than it is in here. Mmmm. Cold air. Unfortunately it's hers and not mine. Dog likes it too mind.

    True, ours are lounging on the patio as its a slightly cooler out. And they're being attention tarts as Stropteen has a couple of mates round.

    I might move my camping sleep mat down here when it's like this. Brand new work from home hutch for Mrs H³. Cat 6 cabled ethernet, air con. Desk goes up/desk goes down. Comfy chair.

    Are you around next week Stevo? Wouldn't mind a half hour chat on how you are dealing with DAC 6.

    Oh I see, you only turn up when you want something.

    Air con; environmental disaster.

    I'd have sent him an email.

    Quite possibly, however, as I live in the uk I expect it will mainly be acting as a heating unit, or be inactive for approximately 350 days out of the year. Is that also an environmental disaster? Or do you not heat your house?

    I shall fcuk off again forthwith.

    I'm probably around all week and in the office Tuesday: can do a Teams call sometime if you want. Might take part of Thursday off as it's Stropteens A-level results day though.

    Edit: drop me an e-mail or pm so we can sort something without Pinno moaning :)

    ignore him, he's just grumpy because he's too hot and has no air con

    i like to strike a balance, 23 is about right, though 22 can be good on really hot days

    Of course, good luck to young 666. Feels like there's more of a lottery element this year.

    Likewise, hope V Junior gets what she wants. I also reckon there's enough deferrals into next year to make a bit of wiggle room likely on grades if that's needed.
