Default Weekends

What do normal folk do at weekends ?

I don`t mean get rat-arsed on a Fri and Sat night, I mean during the day ?

Just wondered as I`ve pretty much spent the whole of today on here and ebay looking at stuff to buy and sell, and youtube.
Now got a lowered Naked K4 in blue

Took dogs for a walk
Cleaned pushbike, and relubed chain
Watched some TV, had some food generally relaxed
Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

Normal folk?
Not sure about that but if it's nice and I'm not working I either ride or break my bike (at the same time every so often). Failing that , see some mates.

Got loads of stuff you could put on ebay for me if that's what floats your boat?

Default Re: Weekends

the washing and ironing routine. Chill out in the mornings normally.

It does kind of depend on how much I had to drink on Friday night...

This weekend, I have-

Had a band practice session, got some guitar practice in, watched one and a half films, a bit of telly, a fair bit of Tomb Raider Anniversary (got it on Friday),trying to to figure out what has caused my entire indicator circuit to die (got a new relay on order- hoping it's just that!), been for a 2 mile run (warm air is harder to breathe, isn't it).

So it's been fairly productive weekend for me, really. I haven't spent any time re-famiiliarising myself with Pro Tools, but that'll happen soon...

And now I'm here! Typing away on the interweb.

The next few months might have a challenge- got a NAS drive arriving tomorrow- I may start getting my CD collection onto iTunes (about 800 of them).

It also depends if it's a Formula 1 weekend. Or if I've got a gig planned...

RIP the Yellow Peril
Someday I'll bike again!

Saturday is usually shopping a.m., golf afternoon, falling down water in the evening.
Sunday with Mrs B and coffee and papers + the occasional ride out.

Sunday evening is total chill on the sofa with nice food/in door picnic, and maybe a bit of work before Monday bedlam
