Hah not even got that far yet.  Xmas Eve is rock n roll in Chez FP.  Mrs FP is wrapping presents and I'm looking at the pros and cons of a unvented pressured water cylinder vs a high flow combo boiler. I did break out a Terry's Orange earlier

Shit be getting' all kinds of crazeeee here :lol:

Kawasaki Z1000sx if you can’t tell by the picture, I am a big fan of the Kawasaki inline 4.

Very little given in our house this Xmas, we have decided to focus on experiences instead of things, the kids got a few things, Judd got a guitar as he shows some signs of good music coordination at school, so we found him a good condition secondhand child’s guitar with beginner book and DVD, Azra got some books as she loves reading.  They have experienced another two overseas trips this year already and two east coast trips so we figured that was enough.  Nik and I got each other nothing, we get enough during the year.

New pair of Hokas to keep as race only boots, new goggles, new laptop stand for the zwift setup, and a pressure point roller kit. Lucky boy. Also my wife requested a second hand treadmill to excersize when she is home with the kids, so I have remodelled the pain cave and now have zwift running set up as well for rainy days😎

Mrs FP and I rarely get each other anything. We had to wake Flipper up just now and we asked if she knew what day it was and she said 'is it my birthday yet' and we said 'no it's Xmas Day' and she just said 'oh' :lol:

Apart from Flipper's Santa stocking, no present opening yet. Breakkie now, then Xmas  Day Parkrun, then we'll open pressies after lunch. (a big family tradition).

No problem, just that there are some cool colours. You can have a watch band to match your TT bike colour, another to match your road bike colour and one to match your favorite handbag colour.😀 They simply clip on and off in 30 seconds.

You can even get leather and metal bands if you want to wear your watch on more formal occasions.

Agree. I replaced my first screen protector after only a few weeks when I wacked my arm on a sharp object. It protected the screen perfectly.

Yeah, here's the thing, I went A over T trail running in Portugal, then found out about the protectors. I hardly notice the scratch now :whistling:

I got a pair of knicks and The Cyclist's Training Bible.

I'm not sure if they are only saying I'm a crap cyclists or I'm a crap cyclists and not even a triathlete anymore.

 

I also have money that will eventually go to a big old kook board.

Something 9 ft plus is required apparently.

My brother suggests an "Old guys rule" t shirt to go with it.

I got Spirograph!!!!!!!!!!! yeah!

So did my 9 yo!

Nothing for Dazz and I. We just buy what we want when we want it. 

The kids did ok. Not too crazy. 

Santa brought them a scooter each and some walkie talkies to share.

We got Lily a hairdresser head, a 500 piece puzzle, an electric toothbrush and a kids Vivo Fit 2.

We got Olivia a pair of converse, a kids Vivo Fit 2, an electric toothbrush and a game of boggle.

Here's Livvy rocking her converse.

I hope everyone had a great day. I really don't like Christmas. So much emphasis is put on one day and if its not the pefect day, people lose their shit.

For those who don't know, Livvy is Cranky's 'mini me'. Cranky is taking all the wins she can get over this kid at Park run for the next five years. After that, it will just be a long downward spiral as Livvy gets quicker and quicker. Lol.

If you're disappointed with your Christmas present today, just remember that somewhere some poor kid is unwrapping a NSW jersey.

I concede I'm hard to buy for so it's best if I just get my own presents. This year I got a nice DeWalt table saw and a new wetsuit :)
