Ken stayed last night. He wasn't supposed to, he was borrowing the car. I said that I was going for a ride and when I got back he'd eaten half my cheese and had a glass of wine. He is not driving MY car after drinking, thank you very much. ... Read more
The 'head in a shed' day

I was up at a quarter past 5 and out with the dogs for an hour, good and early. Dylan ran off after a rabbit and it took me an age to catch him. Toffee came straight back to me when I told him 'no' and called him in. After catching Dylan, he ... Read more

I really needed a decent ride today. I knew that the weather wasn't going to be too cracky so I reckoned that I needed to get a wiggle on. Phil woke me, by text, at 6am. He's a bit good at that. So much for my lie in. I got the dogs walked and r... Read more
Tuesday. Still here

Busy day at work and it was touch and go as to weather I stayed in this contract or not. The managers are not replying to phone calls, messages or emails and I am not getting the mandatory training that I must have. I can't log on to the system ... Read more
Sunday evening in a spotless house, after a bonkers weekend
Sunday, July 16, 2017      5 comments

Today I was awake at 6pm, then managed to doze for another 90 minutes before getting up and walking the dogs, alone, naturally. Ken made coffee and I drank it and had a quick protein shake and then we loaded the car, one last time. The mattres... Read more

Monday's blog on Tuesday morning over coffee

I am back from an hour out with the dogs. Waiting for Leo to call to give me a start date for the successful interview last week. I had hoped to get the job. The interviewer and I kind of clicked, both being RAF Brats and all. We spent most of t... Read more
Sunday evening and chilling out

Busy day today. I dug the garden over, at least the bald bit in the middle of the garden where the previous tenants had their trampoline. I've grass seeded and wild flower seeded it. I shall see what grows. I have planted a couple of vines,... Read more
Saturday update

I am just back from a little 16 miler. I found some lumps rather than totally flat riding. I loved the lumps, just skirting the edge of the Wolds. I have been quite busy and bought a summer weight duvet, finally. Ken - who has spent all his... Read more
Saturday morning and all is well

I am very tired this morning. It's been a funny couple of days. I woke, yesterday, to the news that a lady that I know in America had passed away. She was my age. I don't know the details but her sister put a notice up on FB. Apart from pas... Read more

I have been waiting in for a parcel since 7.45am. I know it's coming between 8am and 9pm and I want it here NOW! New Aftershokz headset as my old headset died after 3 years of hard work. Found them at £70 instead of £96 and thought 'that will ... Read more
Busy old day today
Monday, July 03, 2017      6 comments

I have had a right old day. Job hunting, dog walking and generally being busy. I did find time to watch the last 70km of today's leg of Le Tour though, with a cup of tea in hand. I had a good old look at my online situation and considered... Read more
2nd July already

I miss my cycling buddy. Riding alone has lost it pall again. Even with my aftershokz headset (which is trying to die I think that I have a bit of a short in there). Yesterday I took the dogs for a good long walk. I got dropped off at Woodhall... Read more
The end of June already

This month I have ridden over 470 miles, which is a bit pants for a summer month but there you go. It's been a smidge wet and I don't much like riding in the rain. That said I went out today for 35.5 miles. The Met Office said it had a 10% cha... Read more
