I'm going to have a bath before I start work. Because I'm worth it.

I've just eaten two Tesco creme caramels that were a week past their use by dates and I don't care.

I'm eating alone in a restaurant in Cardiff and I don't care either. :)
And I have a good book: Anne Mustoe's A Bike Ride.

They've removed the barriers at Highbury Corner, which is good for cyclists safety, but where am I going to lock my bike to when I pop into McDonalds?

I suppose that would be your definition of a good desk job ;)

They have disappeared from all over the place recently. It's v good news.

Last night I bought an axe from a dwarf, straight out of Tolkien, for 415...

415 what I hear you ask. I don't know as I woke up.

I was robbed!  :facepalm:

I very much doubt i will be going far from the toilet or the sink today.


Don't question. It makes people angry.

I got caught out on this chilly morning with only track mitts, so my hands got very cold, but I did have a spare pair of socks with me, so I put them on my hands and rode on.  I don't think anyone noticed.

We were just laughing at you behind your back ;)

It was pretty cold first thing.  I almost regretted my choice of jersey.

necessity is the mother of invention :thumbsup:

Whilst waiting at some lights, I spotted that the very dirty lorry in front of me had "Bodywork by Marsh Barton Coachworks" mud flaps, which was a little unusual to see in London.

(Marsh Barton industrial estate is back in Exeter, 200 miles away, city of my birth).
Actually, it is rocket science.
 

Talking about numbers - my bill in Lidl yesterday £6.66 the till receipt of the Beast.

Yesterday on Twitter, I hit the Tweet of the Beast, my 666th Tweet. ;D

As long as they weren't Pumpé's old socks, you should be OK.

Have you said anything interesting yet?  Most people seem capable of cruising past that point without offering anything approaching an apercu ;)

Of course not, that's not the point of Twitter. ;D

On the other hand, it did let people find out I was in hospital a couple of years back when I had an off.  I couldn't have contacted them otherwise, since my phone didn't have their numbers on, whereas they did see me say things in my Twitter feed (updated via my phone).

Halfrods, a shop that has an entire section devoted to blingy socket sets when 99% of car owners hardly know what a car engine looks like, do not have a single wheel brace in stock.

The local hardware store, Barnitts, had half a dozen by Rolson at half the price of what Halfrods would have charged.  

What's more they also had those retro wire birdcages in 2 colours and 3 sizes.  (I know someone who wants one).
Sic transit and all that..

Marsh Barton is the only bit of Exeter I've seen,. I've been there on probably a dozen occasions
