After working yesterday, I was so shattered that I just walked the dogs for 40 minutes or so then curled up on the sofa and didn't move except for doing my evening meal and getting a cuppa. Bed by 9.30 and slept like the dead until 7am. I didn't... Read more

The clocks went forward this morning. Happily, my alarm is set on my phone and it updates by magic, overnight. Today at work, I was in 45 minutes earlier than usual and finishing an hour later. I am shattered. Today's 8 hour shift was at least... Read more

Nice weather all day today, except for a bit of damp in the air mid afternoon. I was going to ride this morning but my Brummie neighbour asked for my help 'popping' to Bodmin for some paint. Just 45 minutes she said. 3 and a half hours later w... Read more

This morning, after our dog walk, was spent curled up on the sofa reading a book. No internet, TV, radio or anything. It was bliss. At lunchtime I went for a short ride. Just 12 miles in the sun but it was very nice. I came home and had a lovely... Read more

Kenn was in at work today, paperwork and ride training, so I had the flat to myself. I had a leisurely coffee and cherries and berries shake, another coffee and then gave the dogs a second walk. Toffee has a sore paw so it's short walks for him.... Read more

This morning, it was pouring with rain. It was windy and horrible. We put our wellies on and took the dogs up the the top field. We had presumed that as the weather was so grotty that nobody would be up there and we were right. Our Lurchers got ... Read more

No bike riding to day. It's drizzling with a vengence. The wind is about 22mph with 35mph gusts. Nope, stuff that. Anyway I've done over 14,000 steps with dog walking and work. My mechanical pony ride was being naughty this morning. Especia... Read more

I started the day with pancakes and threw a small egg into the mix for a bit of extra stickability as I didn't know when lunch was going to be. It could be as early as 12.30pm and as late as 2pm. I love the pancakes, they are brilliant. They hav... Read more

Today was weigh day. I was expecting about 4lbs off. Last time I did this diet, I lost 5lbs on my first week and had a lot more to lose than I do this time. This time I have a good 2 stone less to shift, so when I got on the scales and discovere... Read more

No cycling today. I was just really tired after a horrible night. Just dog walking, a bit of shopping, and bill paying today. I'll ride tomorrow. Em, the lady in Conningsby, called our HO Sarah this morning and she told Em that she needs a ... Read more

Well, what a day we have had. We put the Cornwall end of the application forms into the post to the chaps in Doncaster who want to exchange with us. Then we cleared off up Coronation Park with the dogs for a nice walk and back by road. Once ho... Read more

We got to the library before opening and waited patiently with others for the doors to open, got in and spent a quid on a ton of printing of payslips and stuff for the Benefits Office. We got there early and the woman just photocopied them and s... Read more

Just back from a short ride, just 53 mintues, just to Padstow and back. I was going to ride up the Padstow and then back by road but I sort of ran out of energy at Padstow so just pottered back home on the trail. Dogs got a good walk this mornin... Read more

Today is the one year anniversary of the start of our tenancy here, in Cornwall. We actually arrived late in the evening on the 9th March as everyone exchanges over a weekend. We have had a chat with a person near Wolverhampton, in a villag... Read more
