F*@*!,,,, B*$$!A&*!,,,,, No sign of engineer today,,, so he calls in to say "I'll be back to work on Wednesday! F*%K,,, B*$$£&D,,,, !!!!
As senior engineer I have to cover the shift for boxing day on call! Damn!That means no excessive drink on Christmas day! I've already accepted New years day, no drink at New Year, but that was my choice, as I had Chrimbo off. But now I have to cover Iain's shift on Boxing day, DAMN!

You must be f*££i*% joking? Ok, tonight I have had several, Glenlivet and Macallan to be precise!

I agreed to work New yrs day, Ok, I get £27 plus double time if called out but,,,, I can't drink the day before. I agreed to that, no issue. I have now to work Boxing day, that means no wine with my meal, no dram after my Chrimbo dinner, which I have slaved to cook, is it too much to ask? For one measly period off to indulge and enjoy a dram?
Side note, damned engineer called tonight, answering machine is full, I have to clear all calls as "I'm senior engineer"! Goddamn! F&*K!!!!!!!
Never mind, tonight I am drunk, we'll see how it goes!

Wickham was busy, always an eclectic mix of stuff there. Really enjoyed the race but had the worst first lap ever, took me ages. I got a good start then went to the right of a marshal when I should of gone left and ended up in the pit of despair bog, front wheel totally buried, then the marshal just walked off...cheers bud! Could not free the bike until another rider took pity and we pulled it out, this put me right at the back of the pack and I got stuck in every bottleneck going. :( After the first lap I had no problem with any of the climbs or bogs as you could keep the momentum up. Managed an embarrassing four laps but feel like I've only done a trail ride as opposed to a 3hr race! I just ran out of time. :( Good track tho and it was nice to play in the sand again. :) To be honest at my age a finish is always nice. :blink:

That's cool, I may have a pic of you then stuck in the bog if it was the one directly behind the wall as I took a few of people who got stuck there.

Not sure if you got held up at the bottom of the hill about 2/3rds of the way through but some poor lad stacked it half way up only to have another rider ride over his leg and break it! I rushed down to him pretty sharpish as I could hear the screaming and panicking in his voice. (shit loads of people closer than me just jacked on him and totally ignored him!) The paramedics did a good job though given the angle of the slope and we eventually got him splintered and on the board and back down the hill.

Today was the first time I'd been to an enduro and it's just totally cemented my plans on getting an enduro bike 100% Just need to work out how to make it happen now. The GF was pretty stoked on it too :-)

Damm there's always some bugger with a camera, yup thats where I attempted the 'short route' and yes I was sat at the foot of the climb for 10mins. It was probably one of the more competitive events we have done but it is racing. Get something road legal as you can do loads more events ;)
