    Morning. WFW. Early finish and hopefully not as hot.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Bit of a warm ride into work this morning. Burned off a few Aygos on the way. Now supping coffee and enjoying the office aircon while reviewing minions work.

    Hotting up again.
    Off to explore the beaches and dunes.
    May go to Lindisfarne.
    Might go for a swim.
    Unless of course, they have banned swimming in the north sea.

    Lazy start. Need to go get roasted this pm in trains and buses to and from yet another injection appt in my favourite season ticket Eye Hospital. Air con in buses? Trains? No? Problem is that will be on a 48h no-showers embargo. Nice.

    You can 'burn off' Ferrari's and Lambo's ffs - they ain't moving very quickly.

    Morning folks,
    Another day of wfh and fending off all sorts of shite, it's amazing how creative stupid people are in coming up with things. I should know not to be surprised by it. Computer system is still utterly nonsensical which really doesn't help.
    Pub garden booked for his evening seeing as it's Wednesday, this is a good thing. Looks like 'loon will have no problem with social distancing given that he can't shower.

    I think I mentioned I overtook a Mclaren in London the other day, obviously this is due to the huuuuge amounts of power I can generate.
    Isn't Lindisfarne an old band ;-)
    Not sure I'd want to swim in the North Sea even in this heat.

    Can't you wear some swimming googles or a scuba mask while you have a shower?

    Hot
    WFH, which is hot
    Next door's cat has been watered but he's too hot to be interested. Found him cuddling the partly melted ice pack in the garden.

    Impressive attention to detail with the song choice, but wouldn't the theme from Airwolf be betterer given that the Apache is a hecilopter?

    Good point well presented but I'm going to ignore you because of your spelling.

    Oddly enough there weren't many of those around in Camberwell/Walworth Rd/Elephant & Castle. Plenty Aygos though.

    Wednesday already eh? How'd that happen?

    Nice afternoon doing normal stuff, pulling weeds and sweeping up stuff. Chiro for me tomorrow, first in a few months, see if she can smash my neck back into line.

    😊 ripening nicely. Though 1st train was aircon cooled. Less so the buses. 'Course if I was a gammon it would help them. Mmmm, sweaty gammon, luvverly. Bet their hounds are trained to avoid the gammonati.

    I always wondered where the term 'Sweaties' came from :)

    Anyway, its hot I'm on "holiday" in Costa del Home sampling some localish IPA praying for more storms like yesterdays, if so I will again sit in the garden under the pergola and enjoy it like the weirdo I apparently am.
