    The PX lobster gloves are great value - probably the warmest gloves I have, though that does mean they get sweaty (liners help). I find they work great with SRAM shifters (some mental adjustment required, admittedly), since the whole lever moves. It’s the smaller inner lever on Shimano shifters that make them tricky for me, but still doable.

    Hey Stuart

    Yep, these have been sitting unused and unworn since I posted this 2 (!) years ago. I've since moved to near Brighton, if that's any closer to you – else happy to post.

    Just a small PS for this one. Spotted these beauties at Shoreham airport this morning.

    There’s more of a structured plan for returning to the Canary Wharf bank office I work(ed) at, but the plan for the foreseeable future seems to be ‘most people in for some of the time’. It’s at managers’ discretion, though, with a pledge of no monitoring, so it’ll be interesting to see who returns – many seem to want to (I don’t and nor do I need to for my job).

    ‘Collaboration’ has also been bandied about as a sizeable plus for being in the office, which is odd given the anonymous hot-desk misery with no meeting rooms of the before times.

    Looks like you got off lightly...

    I read that in the 80s. It was terrible.

    Ah. I had a vague recollection of it being something to do with adjusting the noise cancellation to allow some noise through, but it was 2 years ago now and I can't remember. The microphones were dire, though – useless for calls (again, unlike the Airpods Pro).

    I returned mine after getting tired of one earphone routinely losing connection to the other – only one connects to the source and then the other earphone connects to that (since fixed, maybe). I loved the sound and found the noise cancelling to be pretty good, but the tap controls were fiddly. And isn't there an audio setting tweak to combat wind noise?

    Anyway, I replaced them with the Airpods Pro and i think they're better in every way, apart from the colour.

    Vegan butchers: Could one be opening on your high street?

    ...the British Meat Processors Association, which is the leading trade association for the meat industry, said it was concerned consumers could be deceived by the rise of "fake" meat.

    "We really don't understand why this deceptive practice is occurring," said CEO Nick Allan. "Vegetables are vegetables and meat is meat.

    Not entirely sure where 'hot dogs' fit into that.
