Postby teamdanby » Wed Aug 31, 2011 5:39 pm

i can't complain i'm still upright and fighting fit
but
gees i know we have all had one of THOSE weeks where if it can go wrong it will go wrong

still waiting for some gear to rock up that has been "coming" for two weeks now
caught the headphones with the phone attached on a door ripping the headphone out and now neither work
brought a MP3 player (pretty cheep one) whos earphones didn't even last the ride into work
and so far for a hump day special for me i got the bike out of the storerrom this afternoon for the ride home to fine the rear tottaly FLAT
cauht a little shad of glass in it so had to repaire it before the ride home
i do carry spares but seems i was at work and also carry the punture repaire kit i thought i may as well do the repaire at work and save the spare for when it will be needed on the road

well atleast half the week is over just need to wait to see what the other days have install for me

This may not sink in right away but think of the times when your injured and not doing anything. Atleast your out there giving it a crack. Chin up
If you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand it well enough.

I rocked up to work to find that the company has gone into administration/liquidation...

So no job... argghhhhh

Worst part...my new bike is currently under layby at my LBS and i'm just waiting for that spare one thousand $ to bring it home..

With no job and no salary at the moment who knows how long it will be till my baby is sleeping in my garage instead of under the lights of the LBS...

Still, as you say, I'm upright and alive, so all is good...

Plus I got in a good 50km on the MTB today ..... sunny, slight breeze...

You may well have just lead m to the discovery of the decade: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Audio-Casse ... 2651wt_905
Of course, it could be complete crap, but the concept is amazingly practical.
