    This, this is it.

    What i hate is the fact that in a few years when this has stopped making page one of the papers. The government, doesnt matter which party, will quietly cut more funding and ham string more services until people are forced to an american style health system.

    I work on equipment with small parts and tiny screws. Easy to spot on my black bench, not so much on the grey/blue lino the entire floor is covered in. Guess where the bits always fall..
    I moved a cabinet a few weeks ago and there was enough small screws to restock our spares cabinet.

    first cycle commute in an age. Roads quiet, the birdsong broken only by my wheezing.
    8/10 will cycle again once i catch my breath.

    A less than triumphant return to running this week. Took my 8 (ish) yr old niece with my GF and her son (12 yrs) to parkrun. GF and son managed the whole course in 38 mins which is good for his first parkrun. I however stayed with the niece who ran about 10 feet then had a stitch and walked the rest in sullen silence. No amount of chatting or joking would elicit more than one word responses. We cut out about a mile of the course and took an hour to finish.

    So my running starts new years day at the parkrun instead.

    just found this thread, i've recently reintroduced my kid and new partner to my incredibly geeky hobby mindset and my group of friends. 40k, sigmar and Magic the gathering. We have all started board games as a weekend activity and are finding ticket to ride and tokiado to be brilliant. Mysterium is tolerable but slow and difficult. Zombicide is just stupid hard. My friends and i play rising sun which is amazing and once the politics start.. hilarious. One of the group has mention Twilight Imperium so thats on the cards for the holidays.

    if hes playing sigmar, get warcry... handful of models and just abridge the rules. 40k.... kill team and similarly cut the rules. Simplify them as much as you need.
    There tons of games like them but the joy comes with building/painting the models and the 6yr old will want to play your older son and with abridged rules you can let them fight each other to their hearts content.

    I can lip read a little as my stepdaughter in deaf. So this morning i saw exactly what the woman behind me said when i was stuck at a roundabout for a few minutes in extremely heavy traffic.
    I'm fairly confident the bike wont fit without considerable lube and she shouldn't shout stuff like that on a school run.
