- What’s good and positive about today?
My wife is due to give birth in a little over a week, we’re off out for a meal at our favourite restaurant tonight and I have running, catching up with friends, seeing a talk by Michael Foale AND riding my bike planned for the weekend.
Also Jasmin Paris’s incredible Spine Race win is proof of the amazing things that the human body can do if pushed.
Oh, and Maisie has a new box to sit in.

What’s good and positive about today?
I am back from the far east Borneo after nearly 5 weeks off. LOL! 🙂
I completely switched off on all news while there visiting my parents and only watched classic Chinese movies.
The weather was so baking hot that even the fan was blowing hot air (in side house tempt average 26C).
Plenty of fake canned beer or alcohol and so watch out what you drink over there. No kidding. Scan the bar code on the can to see where it is produced and if scan result comes back blank. Avoid.
Foods are getting more expensive and quality poor.
p/s: no food poisoning this time … 🙂Posted 10 months agoP-JayMember
The sky was inky blue as I left work last night, not pitch black, I didn’t even bolt out the door at 5pm
“The Circus” is never as bad as it seems. News agencies are in the business on entertainment, they’re there to show the worse ‘what ifs’ to grab our attention, that’s not to say that everything will always be rosey, bad stuff happens, but it’s never as bad as our worst fears.
Remember how y2k was going to kill us all? The 2008 Great Recession would destroy Western Economies forever, Trump coming to power was going to be the end of days etc?Posted 10 months agowillardMember
I’m still waiting for pictures of the new puppy that was in the office. The cat inna box fed the cuteness for a short while, but I demand puppy pictures!
My personal contribution to nice things today was baking a load of cinnamon buns last night for my colleagues at work. I may have quality controlled a couple last night and they are good. I hope people enjoy them.Posted 10 months agofasthaggisMember

The arse is kicked out of the week.
I pick up a new car tonight after work.
I managed to get a space for the boy and myself on the IOM for TT week.
So even though it feels like chaos abounds at the moment and a lot of nastiness is floating up to the surface, I remind myself that there are enough lovely people and places in the world,so none of this crap is going to drag me down.
My pint is half full.
Erm, well, erm… I’m heading home today after another hellish week at work/hotel hell.
I filled the fridge before I left home, so no food shopping required 👍
I think I’m meeting up with a freind on Sunday, after many cancellations… I think that’s a positive, I’ll report back.
Oh, on my way home today… I drove the soft top up this week so I may get the top down as the Suns just come out.. 🥴
I have cash in my wallet, I may go for a pint tomorrow 🤣Posted 10 months ago
My wife is due to give birth in a little over a week
congrats 🙂 I won;t ask what gender the baby is – there’s a clue in the pic!
Sun’s out, I get to walk the dog in the woods at lunchtime and had a great time at the cinema watching Stan and Laurel last night.
Thank you! What you can’t see in that picture is just behind the balloon is another balloon that says ‘baby boy’… We actually don’t know what we’re getting, so MrsMonkey’s friends got her a balloon for each.Posted 10 months agoglobaltiMember
I’m going for a brisk 2.5 mile walk with a colleague at lunch time and my plated collar bone and frozen shoulder are feeling better by the day, thanks largely to the fact that I have really ramped up the exercises using the latex band the physio gave me, so I’m optimistic that I’ll be back on the bike in the Spring.Posted 10 months agojimdubleyouSubscriber
I chose the second coldest day of the year so far to do my second ride to work of the year.
I didn’t get rained on, but my colleagues who came in a few mins after me and said it was sleeting!
It’s now beautiful blue skies, I’m in the office but the view is much improved.Posted 10 months agohodgyndMember
I’m at home ..apparently it’s snowing in Newcastle ( it wasn’t when I left earlier ) ..it isn’t in Bell City..Posted 10 months ago
I’m lying in bed nursing week four of this cold that just won’t budge..it started in the usual way …nose like a dripping tap but has morphed into ..head full of snot and a raking cough ..
I’ve been given a Sudafed pill which I have only ever taken once before and the results weren’t good ( it worked alright ..but to excess) ..so I’m expecting to flood downstairs once it kicks in ..
Apart from that ..life’s a gas 😁
