The 'rain stopped cake' day
It's a bit like 'rain stopped play' in cricket without the option of 'if wet in village hall' like village fetes have. It chucked it down and didn't brighten up until gone 5 and the cake selling cafe closes at 5 so no carrot cake. Brandi is tota... Read more
The Busy-Bee in the Barn day
I got up, not very bright and breezy, but up. Not feeling the love of the day in any way shape or form today. I got on my Garmin page and routed up a 'plan B' in case I didn't feel like 'Plan A'. There is a turning point at about 10 miles where ... Read more
The spring clean in the middle of the summer day
It was chucking it down with rain today so the cake ride was off. I didn't fancy 30 miles in the rain and mud. Instead we blitzed the flat, scrubbed the floors and generally had a good tidy up. I do keep the place tidy but every so often I blitz... Read more
The dog hair in the heat!
Busy day once again. 1 Cairn Terrier and 2 Springer Spaniels later I've managed to walk my own dogs, watch a very old Columbo (the one with Johnny Cash in) and get some guitar practice in.
After work I had my second shower as I was covered ... Read more
The groomer in the groove
Another no riding day today.
It started off with one dog walk and ended up with 2 and a groom, plus fixing the car and making the printer work with my windows laptop. New drivers required, stupid thing.
I haven't done much grooming lately, b... Read more
The solo in the love song
Day off cycling today. Anyway the forecast gave out rain and I don't do rain. I identify with my hounds and they loathe getting wet. The terriers will puddle hop for England though. It didn't rain it just got really pothery and sticky. Yukkidy y... Read more
The Boil-in-the-bag Bike Ride
First things first. Slimming World, scored on the doors and 2lbs off. That's 1lb off that went on last week and a brand new 1lb off too. According to SW, I am 11st 3.5lbs. According to my correct scales, that makes me 10st 10.5lbs which sounds m... Read more
End of the month ride
It was all work work work today. Springer spaniels everywhere I looked.
I had a sit down and a coffee before venturing out on the bike. I rode one of my usual routes with a couple "oooh I wonder what's down this road" incidents to see where th... Read more
Monday Ride in the Rurals
Early blogging today as I have got to go to the dentist and have a pesky, twisted tooth out. It is starting to damage the teeth either side as it's twisting so Jack (my dentist)is pulling the twisty one to save the ones either side.
I was o... Read more
Surprise sunday ride
It was raining this morning, so I did the sensible thing and pulled the duvet over my head and went back to sleep. Once up I had a nice flumpy morning, watching the rain and putting Christine, the Garmin back to factory settings as it's obviousl... Read more
Sunny Saturday pub crawl :)
Oh, ok, we went to 2 pubs.
As the weather was so gorgeous, after a nice sausage (Linda McCartney) or 2, a poached egg and some beans for brekky, we got on our bikes and headed off for a ride.
We had this ride all planned out and headed... Read more
This Girl Can!! This girl did!
I am just in the door from a lovely evening with Jaide, who lives next door, at the This Girl Can event at the University of East Anglia (or the UEA as it's known) Sportspark. Firstly, it's a heck of a complex, I had no idea how big and lovely i... Read more
Thursday guitar day
Nice day at work today. We chatted about the business and got some playing done. New jazz - Dave Brubeck, solo from a Mike Oldfield track, more E.J Read more
Wednesday weigh in
1lb on at Slimming World- or staying the same at home. I am not convinced that SW's scales are bob on in any sense of the word. Heigh ho, who cares anyway as my 'George' (Asda) size 12 jeans fit perfectly well now anyway. My blue flowery jeans a... Read more
Midsummer bike riding
We got lost!! No, really we did.
We thought that we would go down a road that we've never been down before and it brought us out on a road we knew. So later in the ride we did it again "I wonder where this road goes" we thought and rode down i... Read more
