A Passing Hot Tour of Britain

 Well, this was a nice way to start the  month of september with videos, since the first full weekend of September and things are back to the normal in some ways, well the payment for the pandemic has only just begun but here things are back to flowing, events are around and well, its nice to catch up on possibly a final Monday off not having visits since actually May. But the vlog is below: 

Now since the previous vlog, there is little that has changed, the Sunday just gone was a clean day off with little to do minus catching up with work, well online work to make money for the week after, bills and also soon to have time to get things sorted. 

We begin with the morning off with admin.

A Hot morning, 

Well, It was time to get up, Thought its been working until 3am the night before which made me tired but Dell and the UEFI booting via USB is one fucking nightmare. But thats life, it was finally exciting since I shaved the day before to finally clean the neckbeard look too.   But we then we wake up to try to get ready to walk the dog, also with some upsetting news an uncle died of Covid even when double jabbed, things of death always happen around this time, its happened the past 2 years to say the least. But it was time to carry on, for making sure on how things would go. But lucky for me I had the morning off. so it was time to get Rosie walked. It was also noce to get the selfies sorted.

Then it was time to get the bike ready and cycle to work, this was to get some admiin sorted, with some deliveries, which one of them involved the overdue gfuel, which for the next week, was going to get me energy for the time i will need it. The cycle was on part of the race which you can see from banners by the sprint sections.

But, that was for a few hours, which involved getting postage done as well as starting to book the stock in. But it was time passiong really quickly and well 1:30pm was already minutes away.

Time to wait for a viewing

Then once it was time to prepare to walk to a viewing port, with the tripod in my hand, it was first time to use this outside in public and well, actually it did look pretty stable for the most part, it was ok to work on the pavement and was not flimsy either.

The Spot i found in the end. 

Then it was a case of waiting, from trucks passing  my view to customers greeting me by and even it was the passing of cars, bikes and all in-between. But the arrival was meant to be around 2pm but the heat and other factors caused it to be delayed. But by 2:30 it was then  the bikes were zooming past.

But soon after, the Marshall ridden up and parked on the roundabout near me, it was then time to get a bit of a ride going and the hype was real with the racers coming up, first was the pack of 5 which actually was a fair 15 minutes in front of the rest of the pentathlon. But after them and a few minutes, thats makes it end of the event.

Then it was a case of taking the tripod back to the shop and this was the rest of the stock to book in, which there was even one or 2 people entering the shop when it was closed, the bike was parked in there and after that. I was on my way home by 4:30, which that week wasn't as hectic as it was going to be seeming but also it was planning the steps for time off to myself for the 2 weeks after, which might be from all nighters online work to even a new menu item of katsu churros. But for now, see you soon
