That was another blindingly good weekend. I am absolutely knackered but it was ace. I got to Sandra’s place about 2 in the afternoon on Saturday to be given the biggest welcome by the 2 girls (Rebekah & Sarah), they melt my heart every time they are such sweet kids. When I saw wee Peter I was amazed. Last time I saw him he was only months only with a load of dark brown hair – Now he’s a cute lil blondie!! It was Sarah’s birthday so we had a lil party for her – Its amazing how easy it is to please a child of 3. We had a nice relaxed evening with My other sis Angie and my parents.
Sunday was the big day. The Godmother I found out was my long ago em from Ireland Mary Roe! It was great ceremony and neither Mary nor I lost it although when the Priest went to congratulate us all and shake our hands Mary thrust the Prayer leaflet into his hand not realising. – Said losing it incurred. There was a lovely party in the church hall with the whole Holmes Family which was great.
Later in the day I jumped on a couple of trains and arrived In Edinburger&fries to see Bob and Cass. The Eve was spent in the bar Bob works at chatting to them both, Bob and I loosing miserably to Cass at pool and bob generally doing no work at all. It ended with us back in Bob’s “soon to not be his ” flat, trying to stray awake watching Dr. Strangelove (great movie just tired). Up at 8:30 this morn to get Back to London. A lot crammed into one weekend and it was excellent! – Check out the gallery to the left.
Off to GLASGEE tomorrow for the weekend where the role of Godfather starts officially!!!! It should be a fun weekend. I fly from Heathrow and get to Glasgow by about 12:30 Spend the day/eve at Sandra’s and do the christening on the Sunday then in the eve am of to Edinbuger to see Bob and Cass And Fergus for the night then back home on Monday.
Today has been a busy but highly amusing one too. Just been working with 2 kids who made me loose it quite a few times – It is true when people exclaim at “the things kids say” – Its so true it was very very funny.
eBay Dork! – I now have his number and I think his name!!!!!
IS A BASTARD!!!
Why is it that when you stroke someone’s ego it can be a very bad thing and it is not reciprocated??? James’ nickname for me is : Jockey because – I am short and Irish – like most horse jockeys! – This is the latest Jockey picture:
That’s right have your laugh at my expense – Actually I think its funny as hell!
On a bad note: The bike shop rang – £360 for an engine re-bore and re-build! ouch. – I guess little Timmy wont be getting a present this Christmas.
Graced Mr. Pearce with my presence down by Teddington Lock this afternoon. Bought some DVD’s off him and drank a pint. I neglected to go have a look at the jumps on the other side of the river – Jumps scare me – I have completely forgotten how!!! – Depressing.
I need to learn how again – That was always the best bit!!!
It’s amazing how quick it is to dismantle a bike and yet it takes hours to build one up. Tomorrow I should (hopefully, please god please!!!) get my B17 frame so will have to build that one up which will be hard seeing as I need a hell of a lot of parts! For now though the Saracen is dead and will soon be appearing on EBay.
Damn – It’s 5:45am!!! I’ve been tryin to sort the frames on this page! Ok as sinful as it is I have been using FrontPage to write and edit this site so it may be the prob! Trying to keep the frames static but no matter how much I play with it they all wanna resize themselves. Any of you web people got a solution? – I am turning into a geek!
I tried fitting this heat sink and it proved futile. Then after speaking to Dim I realized I forgot the paste! It’s far better performance then my current one but the other one is blue!!!! Might put in a poll vote for it!!Anyway – about to go round see my bro
Got into work this morning and realised that I didn’t freeze my a**e off during the drive in then when i took my lid off I also realised that there was a definitive smell of spring in the air…oooh longer days and warmer weather are coming!
The main thing is that my lovely frame was not waiting for me. What was waiting for me was an e-mail saying- “whats ur address again?” This worries me as its the 3rd time I’ve given it to him. He said he’ll send it off tomorrow.
