Today we went to Newquay as I'd been given a card (marketing thing) from a jewellers shop there which meant I could claim a free pair of CZs set in silver stud earrings. There is no way that I'll wear CZ but my sister in law likes the stuff so I... Read more
Monday and a new week
The weekend was interesting and I ate too much. Thought I'd mention that straight off the bat. Not happy about my weight so have kicked myself up the bum and back on plan. Naturally, today I have woken with a headache but I will sort myself out ... Read more
So cold out
Yesteday was great fun. We went off to the local hospital and I braved the lift to the 5th floor and dressed as a large blue dinosaur. I was going to be a friendly ogre but the suit was damp, properly horribly damp, so it needs to go off for cle... Read more
Busy and semi productive day
Kenn is back to his usual dialysis regime and location, so collected at around 11 and back at around 5.30, which is better than collected at 1pm and back somewhere around 9.30pm. It never got above freezing today or yesterday so riding was off t... Read more
Middle on the night blogging
After a busy weekend at work, my head is all buzzy and I can't sleep. I got up at just after midnight and did a couple of Esperanto lessons, online and then logged on to Justin Sandercoe's youtube channel and learned the first solo of Sweet Chil... Read more
I am a rubbish Sparker!
Yes, I know that I haven't logged on in an age. My Laptop has been for upgrades with a pal and I've only just got it back. He even cleaned the thing, and God knows it needed it! He hoovered the inside with a little hoover thing for computers. Wh... Read more
Wet and windy here!
Horrible day today. All rain and wind. No riding since the 2nd November as I've not been feeling the love and I didn't want to go out in the horrible weather.
On the 5th November, we went to view that flat in Oxfordshire. We really like the... Read more
The sun is still shining, here in Cornwall
As the weather is so nice, I thought a bike ride was in order. I didn't really want to go as I'm not fit enough to ride up and down hills, so took the dull trail to Padstow again. It was heaving with people, parents with kids and all sorts. It's... Read more
I christened my new tyres today.
My tyres, the Marathon plus tyres I bought yesterday, arrived this morning. After a flumpy morning doing nothing (it was bliss), I took my £50 note to the bank and paid it in. It's a 13.4 mile round trip to the bank so I took the bike, with his ... Read more
October is done and dusted and you'll never guess what......
This is me (in the middle), with my friends Sammy & Adrian, at last night's Camel Creek end of season staff party. What a blast.
Food was pizza, o... Read more
Thursday and 3 days to go
Today I was rota'd in for the Simulator ride with Jess. However, Jess left yesterday because she is pregnant. 10 weeks pregnant, with no issues but feels that sitting on her bum and working is too much of a risk to the baby. Heigh ho.
Not too ... Read more
Arrgh! Did I make you jump?
Skull facepaint. I didn't make much effort today so was in jeans, black boots, black tee shirt with skeleton pattern on it, which glows in the dark ... Read more
Zombie crash and burn rehearsals. Give me strength!!
I was just too tired to log on yesterday and headed off to bed early.
Today I have worked on Pony Express, the mechanic pony monorail ride, then on Wave Rider, the swing chair roundabouty thing.
After work, we had the scare train rehea... Read more
The Zombie Apocalypse is taking shape...
Work today was great. I was in the simulator with Dave, who was dressed as a skeleton with light up gloves, teeth etc. I basically let him get on with it while I drove the train, did Dina twice, drove the train some more and then left him to it ... Read more
The zombie apocalypse meeting, at work
Work went well. The swing ride (Wave rider) in the morning. I kept nice and warm by sweeping the puddles away from under the ride, so, on the offchance of customers, feet would stay dry. I had about 18 guests ride, over the course of about 6 or ... Read more
