LE WOCHENENDE
Previous | 12 | Next

Early start to the weekend for me:

Fri: Drive to Exeter and back (via Mr Flew's gaff) to wave goodbye to the Clio and pick up the new motor. It's going to be a long day! If we're back in time hopefully out for a bite to eat.

Sat: Early start again as stove man comes round to rip out the (very) badly installed flue liner, stove and cowl in one room, and the flueless gas fire in another, before fitting a nice new stove with correct liner etc. Mucho £££ :(

Then it's out to the Warehouse Project in Manchester for Orbital 8) Hopefully they're not going to be on at some stupid hour of the evening.

Sun: Sleep. Lots of sleep. And drink. And apparently christmas decorations ( :? ), but I'm going to try and sneak off for a sleep. :lol:

Tomorrow: get on a plane at Heathrow.

Sunday: get off a plane in Auckland.

Monday - Thursday: catch up with people, relax, sightsee with family, drink beautifully made coffees, try not to get sunburned from sitting under a massive hole in the ozone layer.

Friday: get married :shock:

You win! :lol:

That's a hell of a long way to go to gwt hitched. :shock:

Hope it all goes swimmingly for you both and good luck/congratulations etc. 8)

My weekend started just over a week ago, but

today I will wander along the beach to collect my registration pack for IronMan Phuket 70.3, then maybe a a bit of a run.

Saturday will involve checking my bike into transition and generally taking it easy

Sunday up ridiculously early even by my standards, sort out all my gear in transition, try not to puke, (as I did last weekend) then go for a bit of a swim, spin on the bike and a gentle jog. Plan is to go under 5 hours and hopefully top 10 in my age group

Couple of days in Bangkok then back to India.

Cheers, Rich

rented a cottage in Malvern, lovely place it is too puzzlewood and the Severn valley railway on the cards, nearly didn't make it though, returning from picking the eldest from nursery along a local B road a bin wagon came round a blind corner at speed completely on my side of the road, had to take avoiding action and that meant heading towards a ditch, car was sideways and missed by inches. The wagon driver continued on his merry way.

Fri - nothing of note
sat - Up early to take stunning pics of blue skies and flooded fields/reflections, then getting drunk in a brewary.
Sun - local car club meet and meal in pub

My Glass is always half full

Christ that was a long day, but so far seems very much worth it. Massive thanks to Mr Flew for his time, assistance and the brew. And for the bloody good car chat :D
