To be honest I don't think I want to work at all ! :lol:
Well they're going to make you work till you drop Ian!

Pension age is getting moved further away all the time.
What pension would that be then? The pittance from the government isn't going to keep me going. As for an earlier comment you made about old farts (and I qualify on basis of age) I couldn't agree more. When someone starts banging on about symptoms of basically being old it's a massive turn off.

Won't meet ISO standards, that's not a stick - it appears to be a broom in a bag. That's an altogether more complex device and therefore probably needs a series of training sessions and a COSHH assessment.

Help! I am out on my bike and have suffered a calamity. Having imbibed too much morning coffee and there being a chill in the air I felt the need to water a tree.

I spotted a likely place of discretion at the bottom of a secluded grass bank and the operation was successfully concluded.

The snag is the bank is steeper than I realized and the grass is still very wet. I got down here easily enough but bike boots don't have much grip and now I can't get back up the bank. The bottom is hawthorn and barbed wire so there's no other way out.

One feels somewhat reluctant to try calling for help in this situation.

If i'm going on a long ride i carry an empty potnoodle container, if nowhere suitable out of sight i will kneel down at the side of the bike, it looks as though you are checking something on the bike :lol: :thumb:

Before we do all that, shall we play spot the snowflake? :up:

I was staggered that the string survived repeated dunking in nitrogen, I thought it would crumble to nothing in an instant so... Win.

Take your boots off and try in your socks. Likely to grip better albeit at the cost of wet feet. Let us know if you escape!😂

I often wonder how the majority of our generation has had their personality and sense of fun drained out of them.

It's like they watched Victor Meldrew 30 years ago and interpreted it as an instruction manual for their later years.

FFS......just pull your dick out and piss! I couldn't give a f@ck who sees me to be honest.

I do have form for being prosecuted for pissing in the street though......I see it as a Medal of Honour!

That's basically how I escaped, though with wet socks and nettle stings. :(

However did find the world's biggest car jack

Went out for a bimble yesterday. Got wet. Nearly took myself out on a roundabout...the road was slick but luckly the car behind me seemed to know I was struggling and let me cut them off. Oops.

Brighter today though.

A wee ride out today. Knee has been much better so thought I'd give it a shot. Was all ok. No pain so if the weather is good I'll be back out tomorrow with my better half pillion.

Still can't figure out this Pot Noodle thing........how little does @dynax piss when he needs to go?

When I piss I'd need to carry a f@cking bucket round with me.......cos there's going to be a Urine Tsunami!

But I believe in cutting out the middleman and just piss over my boots!
