Meh in keeping with tradition I guess I'll be the one paying for it all. Still I guess it's a good thing.

it's our wedding anniversary!  10 years today.   :thumbsup:

(but this afternoon could be expensive  A contemporary or modern 10th anniversary gift has a theme of Diamond Jewellery. )

Congratulations.  We don't do anniversary gifts.  For our tenth however, we had champagne cocktails.  Badly hungover the next morning, I fell down the stairs cracking my cocyx and bringing the landing curtain rail and curtains down with me.

I don't actually remember our 10th anniversary but it must have been at the time I was at my lowest ebb, desperately trying to get out of teaching.

Correction: I think our 10th anniversary was the day I spent in the council chamber in Southend sitting the Civil Service Entrance Examination. It was a turning point in my life.

Kirsty (one's better half) has a new bike.  It is a Trek 7.3 FX WSD.  It is beautiful with a smashing gold paint job.  Mudguards and a rack have been fitted, as have Ergon GP1 grips.  Cane Creek bar ends will get added when Chain Reaction make their delivery.  A new pair of Ortlieb Classic Roller panniers (in black) have also turned up.  Its the sort of bike that could take you around the world, should the mood grab you.

I am hoping it will be used for a little gentle touring.

Currently it is sitting in the turbo trainer awaiting Kirsty's return from work.  Whereupon it will be adjusted to fit.  A little shake down cruise is planned for Sunday.

Surely she'd not complain if she got a pearl necklace instead?

Be careful young man... it may not hurt now - but it could later.

We want you in one piece for the forthcoming weekend of much silliness and naughtiness.

Yeh I'm fine, just felt hot for a second, no burns though. Which is why it's on the good thread :)

made it to the co-op 2 minutes before it closed to buy in supplies of brown beer.  No more ladies lager for me tonight :D   (and a :D from Mrs Mike too, who now has all the lager to herself)

The sets are impressive.
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.
