    So we're nearly at the weekend. Does anyone have any interesting plans?

    A nice family ride in the morning I think. Followed by an afternoon of mowing lawns and general tedious garden duties should the weather hold out.

    I'm off to a wedding in Dundee on Saturday. It will be the first time I am away from home since the birth of my second child (now coming up for 3 months!). My wife isn't coming due to the hassles of young kids at weddings.
    It is also our wedding anniversary this Saturday, (6th). So I am loosing brownie points there, and I will hardly know anyone at the wedding :biggrin:.

    Still I will be able to get drunk and have the best sleep I have had in months!!:biggrin:

    Bikeathon Sunday and a chance to try out my new Allez Elite which I'm picking up in about 2 hours. Yay!

    Hopefully it's not like getting new shoes that are pinching after 2 miles; the saddle does look a bit sharp at the edges.
  6. Nothing special, its a leaving do (not mine!) tonight and its my nephews 6th birthday tomorrow. Apparently he wants a lock for his bike, so I've got him one of those ABUS ones for kids.

    My boy has one of those! He loves it, and it's a pretty good lock.

    Train them early...

    A rehearsal for these gigs.

    (Hey, you don't have to come, but the more of you that do, the more I'll get paid...)

    And another rehearsal with another band for a wedding gig.

    Sometimes I consider giving up music.

    May see some sunshine somewhere if I'm lucky.

    I'm off on a cross country ride early tomorrow morning. Then I'm going down a disused bomb shelter in the afternoon followed by a pub walk along the river. Not sure about Sunday - I'll probably need to do some work and finish my DIY attempts at decorating the kitchen.

    It's Padfield Plum Fair this w/e so tomorrow I'm helping put up the marquee and sunday am I'm helping them get set up.

    Sunday pm I'm going to run up Redgate with a sack of coal (probably). For fun!

    Hope the weathers good.

    Around this I've got loads of ironing for my hols and have to clean the house and walk the dog a lot.
