Only 38 miles but a ride is a ride. I took my roadie to Evans, in Norwich for a gear service and they didn't do the best job ever. They did a good job on the brakes and new cables, but th egear indexing just didn't happen. I spent 38 miles fe... Read more

I didn't log on anywhere really yesterday. I was generally just not having a good day. We did pop to Louth and sorted out my new bank account, got some bird seed for the bird feeders and went in to Wilcos for a new gardening fork, a spade and a ... Read more

It's amazing what you can do when you don't want to be somewhere. This morning Ken walked the dogs and then we fettled the bikes a bit. Eric's chain needed a serious clean and Bluey's gears needed tweaking so we did that. Fettled Ken's trike a... Read more

I have had 2 x 60 minute walks today. Once with the dogs and once around Louth, looking for the TSB. Just about to go out again. This morning someone had tipped our wheelie bins over. The black bin was empty as the bin men came first thing.... Read more

Well, we are here. In the new house. It's very nice. As soon as we got in we did the usual hoover around, dusted the skirting boards, cleaned the bathroom and all the kitchen cupboards. We figured that the outgoing people were a young couple w... Read more

Today was my penultimate day at work. I shall not be sorry to leave, not now. One or two members of staff are abusing the loo break cover. We call a 'code 7' when we need a loo break, and the one or two people who don't use the toilets before ... Read more

It's the day before Kenn's birthday and he spent it at dialysis and I spent it at work. Very slow day at work today, but I was indoors and by the radiator for the most part. By the time I got home I was ready for a bike ride but I had to wait... Read more

Naturally, after being told we are moving on Star Wars day, it now looks as if we will now be moving on the 11th May. I really wish that the housing officers would get it together somehow - no idea how though. If only there were some sort of c... Read more

Monday, April 24, 2017      3 comments

I have walked the dogs a few times, done the washing up and laundry and that is about it. I have been really tired today, so just chilled. I have done some Dutch, watched the TV, caught up on stuff and generally done sod-all. Marvellous. ... Read more
