Morning team,

strange yellow orb in the sky today, shall we give it a name?

Nice shoos Schmunks, they'll be able to see you coming then.  I used to work in a factory that made fluorescent tubes, but it's now a shopping centre so I no longer have an inside track supplies.

Morning all,

I seem to have dodged the raindrops (and most of the clueless yoofs), but cycling colleague has just arrived in the office drenched through.

Nothing wrong with mundane Mrs F.

Race well Seren.

Very odd mix of bands there Dave- I've never done Reading, but I do still have (somewhere) a couple of monsters of rock Ts from back in the day (Maiden and AC/DC headline-ing IIRC).

Right- off to the coal face, too much to do already in the day today...

Morning all,

very well done to Jr Schmunks.  What's on his A level list?

S'not quite raining here, but not for the want of trying.  It's the Reading festival this weekend, which means my regular train commute will be packed with clueless yoofs standing in all the wrong places (maybe I should have posted this in the first world problems thread).

Wenlock and Mandeville- I've just googled them and they're slightly more psychedelic than I remember, but still inoffensive looking.  Whereas your Beijing owl with it's staring eyes and unhappy mouth/beak is just the sort of thing you'd leave on your bedroom shelf and awake to find it had self-animated and was pecking you to an untimely demise (feel free to insert any other resonant nightmarish visions as feels appropriate).

How did you manage to fit the little old ladies into your lycra Dave?

Morning all,

I think Meldy would make an excellent sleep coach, she's also an absolute whizz at scowling at children who prevent her sleeping.  Sleep also good for healing Mrs F.

Glad to hear all is good in the Mousicle household (and workhold if there's such a thing).

Sorry to hear of your wasted journey Seren- computer should not allow you to book it if they haven't got it. 

Judging by the size of the puddle in the supermarket carpark last night I seem to have dodged the nastiest of the weather.

In other news, the IAAF mascots, sinister or cute?  http://item.jd.com/1634428715.html I'm leaning towards sinister, but maybe that's my non-oriental PoV.

Morning all,

Ooh a lesser spotted transatlantic cousin- sounds like you're making the most of the nice weather.

I was parkrunning as well at the weekend, if you listened carefully you could probably have heard me detonate: Garmin said 7:42, 7:15, 8:xx were my splits.

Hmm, evening session is going to be interesting- no reckless shots please chaps.

Happy chairing Mouse and gingers crossed for you for the new gig.

I was meeting my sister (plus niece), the venues tend to be tied to what offers Tesco currently have on their clubcard.  Blenheim offer you the opportunity to 'upgrade' a regular day ticket to an annual pass at no cost, which I suspect I'll do as there's quite a lot to see.  The grounds around the house are gorgeous., so I can see the appeal of doing a tri there- although 5000 odd competitors (over the weekend) sounds like possibly congested courses.

Afternoon all,

Mrs F- I was getting quite excited about spitfire pleasure flights until I got to the price bit.

Meldy- how's Murph doing, is he enjoying his retirement?

I went to Blenheim paIace on a social yesterday, it's really rather posh and huge.

In other news, I must try to remember to get my fantasy Vuelta team picked this evening, so I s'pose I ought to look at the stages etc.

Would the sink not fit into the car then Melds or was it just too short a journey to need a car?

It's the anniversary of the busiest day of the battle of Britain which means Spitfires and Hurricanes taking off from Biggin Hill, unfortunately they're not flying close enough to the office to be able to spot them.

In other news, my local health food shop is now stocking these: https://www.naturalbalancefoods.co.uk/nakd-nibbles/ very yummy indeed (particularly the salted caramels).
