- Do I have to go to work today?
Not too bad. I bought the KTM790 into the office so i can have a bit of fun on the way home… Then, it’s Zwift time later on as i’ve got my lad at home…
Office seems fairly quiet but it may get a bit busier…. 99% of my mails were from automated things rather than humans.Posted 3 months agoMrGrimMember
Baby due any day now so working from home more than usual waiting for it all to kick off. Two weeks paternity leave and some holidays so mainly focusing on writing a handover for my colleagues as I’ll hopefully not be back till early June.
Definitely got the same come down after a weekend out walking, biking, and sitting in the sunPosted 3 months agobikebouySubscriber
Back in the office today from a week and a bit off.
The Lake District seems so far away as I sit mulling over the shiny glass towers in Canary Wharf 🥴
Walked in, got a friendly “ding ding” from the bloke on his Brompton who always seems to carry an extraordinary amount of luggage on it.. You can see the bike flex sideways as he spins his bandy knees around. He does this route every day, same array of bags and cases, always gives me an”ding ding”… I feel like I should know him, but he’s just one of ‘000’s of commuters heading into Town for a sit down behind a screen of never ending glazed stares.
Or he could be a juggler.
Or a high powered Judge.
Or the Head of Rates at JPM.
Or the barista that makes a great flat white.
Or… ? Who knows, but he’s always chipper that’s for sure. So, Sir, whoever you are have a very lovely day.
Most of my lot are off somewhere swanky, at least one was heading to Sri Lanka and I hope she’s ok. So it’s a quiet day here so far. A handful of left over mails, the laptop has a few updates spinning it into life and we’ve got another security issue I must look into. 113 attempted hacks yesterday means some folks don’t know when to take a break.
Life on the 28th floor.

last couple of days before i head back to work on Thursday but may have to go into the office tomorrow for an induction as we have swapped hats, same place of work but different company. Got a list as log as some very long arms to do before I go but here’s me looking at the forum unable to get moving …..Posted 3 months agoflyingmonkeycorpsMember
Was going to come in early this morning so I had time for a long lunch and run or skate, but a restless MiniMonkey put paid to that (we sat chilling for a few hours so MrsMonkey could have a sleep, then got in late).
Might have a stroll to the skatepark and see what state the kids have left it in after Easter.Posted 3 months agoBeagleboySubscriber
I’m in the middle of converting some RNA into cDNA for library preps, but my head isn’t in it. My head is planning where to go when I get home tonight. A couple of laps around Torwood? Maybe head into Stirling for a skoosh along North Third’s clifftops? Need to do something as the weather’s to break tomorrow and the forecast is for a fortnight of rain. 🙁Posted 3 months agomashrMember
A couple of laps around Torwood?
You mean you can actually navigate that maze of trails?! I mean, you cant get lost but its near impossible to follow one trail these days!
Luckily my view out of the 4 storey high windows is showing me that its still quite hazy outside, so thats nearly keeping me sanePosted 3 months agoCountZeroMember
After such a lovely weekend, I really wasn’t looking forward to a 5am alarm this morning.Posted 3 months ago
When I saw the long queue of cars outside work, I knew it was going to be a busy start, but Sod’s Law meant nearly all of the tablets we use were SNAFU’d, it took me forty very frustrating minutes to finally get one to work, and some of the drivers were getting a little testy. So was I! Rest of the day was a lot calmer, thankfully.
I just wish I could afford to take early-ish retirement. 😕yourguitarheroMember
Woke up in my bivvy in the Pentlands.Posted 3 months ago
Cycled down to the village for a bacon roll.
On to Linlithgow for a smooch with gf and to put some beer in kegs and bottles.
Back on bike, along the forth coast via Hopetoun and Dalmeny estates.
Back in time to wolf down some nice bread with chunks of butter.
90 min conference call then a nap.
Now thinking about cooking a steak pie and chips.P-JayMember
I’m on hols all week, but I’ve taken 2 calls and answered a dozen or so emails.
Between an over-nighter in North Wales at the start of the weekend and a day-trip with the family yesterday I’ve lost all track of what day it is anyway.
Weather looks to be turning back to a more normal April state of affairs, which is a shame. Two hyperactive kids to entertain on a wet **whatever day of the week it is tomorrow** doesn’t really appeal.Posted 3 months ago
