    Haha. I slid on the mud for a good bit, and there was a bent up fosters can where I slid. I've never known a tyre to fail like that, so assumed it was the cause - I didn't know they had form, it was indeed a Conti, a GP400S II.

    We only got offered upto £360K on a combined income of £90k, but I'm guessing that was more down to our low LTV (we only have about £20k in savings for a deposit).

    Had a nice gentle ride out to Sevenoaks with the wife, or rather it would have been if this had been avoided. That tyre had less than 25km in it, you can still see the mould lines, FFS.

    I had to ride 20km with a gel wrapper between the innertube and the tyre, and keep the descending speed below 'ludicrous'.

    The route was great though, I'd love to work it into a loop round Knoles Park and back into Herne Hill next time.

    Did you change the font-weight over the weekend? Suddenly all has gone very light. I love the font, but it loses a lot of it's charm at this weight.

    I'm on the latest Safari on Mavericks, FWIW. Web inspector is saying body copy is now at 300.

    Never had problems with my Cyclo 505 in the rain but they have just royally ballsed up the latest set of software updates so I'm wary of recommending them absolutely.

    Yeah, I guess it is down to how you want to use the space. We need a guest room as parents live a way away, and the back room would make a great kids room for the first couple of years.

    I can't see the problem with a downstairs room myself, but I'm worried that we'd be reducing the value of the house. It's good to know that shouldn't be the case. We also want to try to leave as much as possible for future owners (or ourselves) in case people want to have a bathroom upstairs.

    Sleep? Why would they need sleep? They sleep when they're dead.

    So... we are looking at a typical small victorian terrace, with the three bedrooms upstairs and a downstairs bathroom at the back of the house through the kitchen.

    Except, the owners have converted the third room (which is accessible only via the second bedroom) to a bathroom too. I don't understand this, as you still need to have a bathroom downstairs for guests in the front bedroom, or reverse the stair case and create a corridor to the upstairs bathroom by making the bedroom smaller.

    My immediate thought is to convert the bathroom back to a bedroom and research suggests that will improve the value of the house? Do people really hate downstairs bathrooms that much? And how much does it cost to cap all the plumbing and convert a bathroom to a normal room?

    El Velodromo in Eixample is a bit of a must, and just down the road there is a great cocktail bar called Dry Martini.

    I just had to type 'best restaurants in Coventry' into Google. Send help.
