Com in Llandysul! Llandysul, are you receiving me?
Loud and clear.
I've just cycled there to get milk and stuff   :thumbsup:

We've moved a bit now, matey.  Just north of Llanfihangle Ar Arth.  Not far from that water wheel that we saw when you and Mrs. Wow came for a ride.

It has formally happened. My sister and her dispicable boyfriend have split up.

Now it's FSA Operation Take Care of Sis.

Wahey!  Well done your sis!

I haz taken delivery of all the bits I need to make the Ken Rogers roadworthy again.

See that pair of Lycra-clad legs sticking out of an Essex hedge on December 28th?

That's me, that is.

Do I detect the stirrings of a Mr Larrington AUK come-back tour?

If so, this is a Good Thing - you have been missed.

I got a circlip in the post from WobblyJohn this morning, I fitted it without wounding myself and went for a [bloody cold] ride round the village on my first mike-built wheel.  I got back in 1 piece, the hub works beautifully and the wheel is still round!!!

If so, this is a Good Thing - you have been missed.

I need to start cycling to work first.  The problems with excuses to avoid this are many:

o it's cold
o it's dark
o it's icy / raining / foggy
o it means getting up a lot earlier
o it's a long way1
o I've got a headache and would be all cross and wouldn't enjoy it

However, I can't put it off much longer, as a second charger for my GBFO front light arrives RSN, to be installed at work.  Monday the motorcar is in for a service, though, so it'll only be a couple of km each way.

1 - shortest route 28.5 km, flattest about 34 km

Bad news - I am struggling to write two 2009 account plans. Dull tasks made worse by a complete lack of inspiration.

Good news - I have just got on the outside of a Bombay Fat Boy Pot Noodle.  Had the underside of the lid informed me that I had won a free Pot Noodle battery powered twirling fork it would have been even better news.  My office in the garage is nice and warm, if a little damp, as the tumble drier is on - bugger the CO2 emissions  O:-).  To cap it all, I will soon be setting off on Claud for a lunchtime spin via the farm shop to buy a couple of large farm reared steaks - bugger vegetarianism  :thumbsup:

Apologies to any eco friendly veggies out there.  I am in one of those moods.  Normal service will be resumed soon.

My colleague has brought me a packet of Lemon Puffs as an apology for saying "fuck off you bitch" to me at least 4 times on the Christmas do last Friday, even though she can't remember saying it and I knew she was joking anyway.  ;D

Alas, I have been asked to change them! 

I have a defence and a damn fine one.  My ex-boss and now mate Martyn sent me the picture and I couldn't resist.  Resisting temptation has always been a problem for me!

It would appear that we are going all posh. 

When The Boss does a bit of on-line grocery shopping the nice people from Ocado rock up as opposed to the just as nice people from Tesco.

And, I am not eating pickled hen's eggs anymore!  Here is what the pea green Ocado van has just laid ... :o
