My laptop died on me. It has been in the shop for over a week, cost me £120 which was all my bonus and some of my savings. Bloody thing. I have gone right off it so Kenn now has it and I have got his laptop. I got it today.
I have cleared all... Read more
Riding riding riding
Finally got out on our bikes last night. 8 and a bit miles just up to Nanstallon and back and then came home and watched the Track cycling at the Olympics.
This morning I got a good 12 and a bit miles in before breakfast and then cleared off t... Read more
I think I might have done more running about than ever before!
Today I worked on the carousel, which is our vintage ride, built in 1946. It needs a good old tarting up but it'll get a big refurb over the winter months and will come out in Spring all fabby and spangly. In the meantime, I think its a nice nos... Read more
Work out at work today
Having mentioned Trip Advisor yesterday, I've had 2 mentions, as Brandi noticed. Very pleased and got a nice 'chat' with management in the lunch room about how well I was doing etc. It all helps towards being asked back next year, does Trip Advi... Read more
So much for the bike ride
The plan for today was to walk the dogs. Check.
Make some Owl earrings for a friend. Got as far as getting my pliers out and the phone rang and it was Tam, from work. Would I go in. I said that I would but as Kenn is already there and has the ... Read more
Only walking today
Slowest internet in the world here today. I can see the infinity box from here as well.
Today, was hot and Kenn didn't want to ride as it would make him too thirsty. As he's only allowed 650ml of fluid a day, I could see his point. I went o... Read more
Exercise finally happened today.
I dropped Kenn off for his first day at work, after dog walking. Millie didn't want to go far and had very slow paws on today.
After I had got home, after dropping Kenn off, I went next door and asked if she fancied a dog walk and a spot of lu... Read more
Not exercised today yet!
Very dull sort of admin day today.
I have had 2 hours on the phone with some folks that are helping with our finances, with Kenn on benefits and my part time work. They needed to know that I'd gone up to full time etc. I was on hold with them... Read more
Wet start to the month
My waterproofs are not that waterproof, as it turns out. They leak, at the elbows.
Today I learned to operate the Raging Rapids ride - blow up dinghies that go down a large slide. Here is one, it's nice and high that. Nice view for the morning... Read more
The highlight of my day was a 30 minute dog walk and a nice hot shower. My back aches and my plantar fascitis is playing up so I took my own advice about resting a sore back and rested the dang thing. Feeling much better than I was this morning.... Read more
Today was my day off! Really it WAS (note the past tense)
The morning started all normal enough. Dog walking and serial shoe polishing as I got Kenn to give his hiking boots a polish. He was going to wear his black shoes but I said that they didn't go with his brown hiking trousers (we cannot find his ... Read more
Brilliant day today. 15,000 steps including 2 quick walks with the dogs. Kenn took the dogs for a walk, after I had left for work. I just whizzed them around the block at 7am and then again at about a quarter to 6 this evening.
I love the 5... Read more
Walking and bike riding in the rain today
I got a phone call today, at around a quarter to 10 this morning. Can I come into work, they've had 2 people call in sick and we have a new starter. 'Sure' I said, 'give me half an hour or so, I need a shower and I'll be right along'. I got ther... Read more
Monday!! not moving off the sofa tonight
I was in an area called Swampy & Dina's land, it's got some soft play areas and 5 rides for smaller kids. I worked Swampy's Drop - a vertical drop ride, all of about 12' high - in the morning then Swampy's Sky Ride - a 5 car ferri... Read more
Riding to the coffee place and back to watch Le Tour
I was as stiff as a board this morning. Pulling those seat bars up and down for 3 1/2 hours yesterday afternoon was better than any upper body gym workout. My word! I ache in places that I didn't know I had. Hips ache too, all that walking about... Read more
