  • Morning everyone. I'm peaking out the curtains at the rain. Another tedious Zoom call for work, or go on 'Busy' and sneak a bike ride in? I guess I'd better be good and crack on with work. :D

  • Mine it's cycling (slowly), running (badly) and going for walks with my family. And beer at the weekends. :D
