    I just cheered Thomas on. Wearing headphones. In my office. I think I've given the game away.

    I dunno. Sky (Broadband only, they are cheapest at the moment) sent someone to install a line at our new place (not literally new, it was built in 1880) and they spent four hours connecting the house up because the existing line had been pilfered by another house. Cost us nowt.

    Realised this weekend that the 'KOM' on my favourite local road is held by Katie Archibald, because it featured on last years Women's Tour, the top 50 are all female pros.

    They go bonkers fast, it seems.

    I don't understand how this is better than the 'be a ghost' method.

    (Turn cover inside out. Put hand inside and grab corners of closed end. Pick up duvet corners. Pull through).

    I used to do a lot of work for government departments at the web design agency I worked at and they followed the same practice - busiest time of year was March to May, cranking out some absolute bullshit.

    If your constitution can take it, the Japanese do the most amazing, healthy breakfasts. Rice and miso soup with smoked fish is the norm. And if you want to be hardcore, you can get hold of natto at the Japan Centre.

    First ride since moving out of London, a short, slow, gentle scouting mission. And it absolutely justified our move - 1km from our front door and I was on single lane country roads, beautiful.

    Just had Sharps bedroom round (more for inspiration than anything else). They want £8K for fitted bedroom wardrobes, which I can't believe is what people pay.

    What have others done? We're looking for one wall of wardrobes (roughly 2.5m wide by 2.4m tall by 55cm deep). Will most carpentry firms be able to do this sort of thing?

    From what I read, a lot of folk think it is a kludge because Intel have been late on the new Thunderbolt mini connector/port. Expect it to be swapped in on subsequent models apparently.

    Moved in on Saturday. It's way bigger than either of us remembered, but also way tattier - fuck me we have a lot of work to do now.

    A question - I'm a designer by trade so little things not being right bugs the hell out of me. How do people deal with this when they buy a house? Am I fucked? I'm spotting wonky sockets at 50 paces at the moment.
