    The only outstanding aspect of my commute today was a guy who took all the risks. Everytime I caught up with him he seemed to duck inside another truck or switch lanes without looking.

    Sometimes it is just truly terrifying seeing how people operate.

    Well, offer accepted on our second attempt at buying a house. Funny how I'm nowhere near as excited or trusting this time round.

    Utter novice question: On a Specialised Allez from 2008, stock except for Shimano RS11 wheels and replaced shifters, I want to replace the entire groupset with 105, preferably 11 speed. With a bike thats 6 years old, are there going to be any compatibility issues? It's all stock Shimano including the BB which is Hollowtech I think.

    Have private lessons with a teacher. I think we are her only students but her dad wrote lots of Spanish language textbooks so I think she likes to keep the teaching in the family. I can ask if she is looking for more students, she's based in Shoreditch and it's £20 for two of us for an hour.

    I never said they were racist, just surprised that oxtail wasn't a Spanish ingredient.

    Seems a strange thing to do on Blackfriars Bridge at 9:30am on a tuesday?

    Had a long discussion about oxtail in my Spanish lesson last night. Our teacher didn't understand that you could get oxtail West Indian style, and was flummoxed by the whole idea that it was anything but a Spanish ingredient.

    First commute in about 6 months, since getting this job in fact - the pull of a 10 minute train ride and the pain of lugging a bike up four floors to an office without showers or somewhere to change was too much, but the trains are shitty now that Thameslink run them and I'm eating too many mince pies.

    I enjoyed it, and no-one acted the twat. Anyone know what the police checkpoint was all about on Blackfriars bridge this morning though? Looked like they were searching every car.
