Housing Admin vs Bluecoat House

Tonight was the fastest match of the season so far, it was all over by 9:30.

We took a straight 5-0 win, and were 40 pins or so in the lead by the end. Housing Admin took the full 8 points, Bluecoat House went home empty handed.

The next match is the nomination cup semi-final on Wednesday, however I won’t be playing due to a prior committment with Half Man Half Biscuit.

Honing the 456

The 456 is now equipped with a Shimano Hone 22/32/Bash chainset. I’m living dangerously by not getting the BB shell faced, but as and when the first set of bearings fail, I’ll get the shell faced and some replacements fitted, then send the old cups off to Sideways and get the Phil Wood bearings fitted.

I might head out for a ride after the World Cup cycling on telly finishes, provided the weather holds out.

Update: The weather didn’t hold out :(

Lazyness and shopping

This week has been a particularly lazy week. Apart from the 14 mile walk on Tuesday, I’ve not done anything energetic mainly due to the seemingly incessant rain. I have done a fair amount of shopping though. I splashed out on a new mobile phone, an Alpkit Fat Airic camping mat, a handful of DVDs from Play and the Woolworths sale, and a new Hone chainset and requisite tools for the 456.

Hopefully next weeks weather will be better and I can get a bit of riding done, although given the fact that the ground is almost totally waterlogged, it’ll no doubt still be a mucky ride even if it isn’t raining.
