Don't know if I mentioned it to everyone (probably not) but over the last 12 months Ive been desperate to change my job.

Well today Ive been head hunted by a local business man to.

A. Work for him running one of his small businesses as a employee.
OR
B. Work for him running the above as self employed.
OR
C. Him selling the whole thing to me lock stock & barrel.

Its been a funny old day :shock:


Just did my first shift at my second/new job but get this he only went and offered me the use of the business van for MTB transport when ever I like. Im beginning to like my second/new boss :shock:


Did a 8.00am to 5.30pm shift without a break at the second/new job (my decision) and its been
very therapeutic for some reason :?

Strained my back hauling sheep around on wednesday/thursday, as heavy as hay bales but they struggle as well,thus hurting now so not achieved much since. Thank god for Ibuprofen and whisky, not taken together I might add. Anyhoo today in preperation for the scary cold icy conditions the weather pundits are predicting I built a spiked ice tyre. Took ages and had to be redone when I put the 12mm long screws too near the edge. I recommend an electric screw driver as 60 screws takes a long time to fit into place. Backed the screw heads with an old slick mtb tyre I cut off the bead and some of the sidewall then pumped up to 35psi.
Result one scary looking tyre i pray I dont run anyone over with but hopefully will stop me losing the front end on ice 8)

Its the commonly touted via the internet method, short wood screws. Simplest method but does result in a tyre thats as dangerous to the rider as those around them but at £7 for the screws, considerably cheaper than the purpose made tyres :D
