I’m still working 7 days a week, but I do come home & wander into the conservatory to view the BCR......roll on the good weather.

I'm still alive, but suffering a bit from the initial onset of cabin fever... Roll on vaccination. I had a flu jab yesterday, just to get out the flat and have a change of scene!

I'm also in the process of buying a house in Norfolk at the mo', so hopefully will have plenty to keep me occupied during the spring months after I get the keys and can make a start on home improvements.

Stay safe and healthy everyone.

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Staying safe - yes Dave.
Staying warm no.
I'm moving house, like Paul, but run out of oil and they won't deliver less than 500 litres.
So the sooner I am in my own place in Shrewsbury with gas ch the better (2 weeks to go now).

The cat can’t understand why I’m always around. I think I’m getting on his nerves.
The bike needs a few things doing to it but it’s still far too cold to venture into the garage. Roll on my jab and warmer weather!

Thanks Dave - depends on which injury you're asking about.
Back pain is now under control, also calf muscle ok now, but head injury over Xmas repairing well and crunched something in my left knee yesterday lifting boxes!

Blagged a couple of gas bottle heaters, so ok for next week till I'm moved.

I'm OK in semi hibernation - - never dreamed that retirement would be like this! Spending like never before on bike stuff--just hope that it won't be too long before we can start riding again and have some freedom!!

I’m with you Peter, my first full year of retirement has not gone to plan either, bikes have hardly turned a wheel this year, hopefully it can only get better, fingers crossed we can make Criccieth.

$hit John I only knew about the calf injury!! Feel for you though - I've had a back problem for best part of 8 years, dislocated shoulder last winter and from a telephone appointment with physio, appears I've rotator cuff problems. I think I've already joined that club but I'm looking for the exit!!
