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
I am shattered!
20,000 steps with dog walking and work (I didn't take my phone for the early walk either) and my phone app counted all my steps for me. Clever little thing that it is. Much better than my old iPhone 4, which Kenn now has. I promised myself, that... Read more
Bit of a catch up
Saturday was a good day, we went to Bodmin and found a Milletts and bought some black hiking trousers, Peter Storm ones that have zipped legs so I can have them as proper trousers, 3/4 lengths or full on shorts. Best use of £33 I reckon as they ... Read more
My dentist is gorgeous!
Dear Lord! My dentist is as hot as a hot thing! Phwoor. Going back on the 9th of September to have that tooth pulled. It's impacted and a bit horrible. It's been like that for a year but hasn't hurt. It's not hurting today either but it does hav... Read more
Interview and bike ride day
We just did dog walking this morning, then it was shower, ironing my nice top and then off to the interview. I was very happy that my clothes still fit perfectly well, as I've been feeling much fatter lately. Must be more in my head than I thoug... Read more
Lots of walking
Today was our free trip to Camel Creek park today. It's for kids really. Under 15 year olds are the best part of £20 to go into, adults are half of that cost. As I said, we had a freebie.
We might have gone down some slides, over scramble nets... Read more
Having a slightly flumpy day after 10+ hours of driving yesterday
Yesterday started well. Over 90 minutes walking up the trail with Toffee, mostly off lead, once we'd passed the flyover bridge. Not too many people are on the trail at 7am on a Sunday morning, so it's lovely. Toffee trotted about, occasionally d... Read more
Riding in the rain and flat tidying (again)
With all this flat tidying, all you lovely Sparkies must think that I am either the filthiest person on the planet or really OCD. I am neither really. Today a couple came to view our flat, on behalf of the lasses Dad, who is someone Kenn knows f... Read more
Pea soup is my go to food now
I love pea soup, from the trusty Slimming World recipe book. Tonight I added finely chopped up, left over ham and some mint from the garden. 2 big mugs worth and it was delicious.
I got a nice 23 mile ride in yesterday and a nice 12 mile ri... Read more
Big ride today. Battling the wind burns more calories, right?
After dog walking today, I flumped about for a couple of hours, before kicking myself up the backside and getting my bike out and off for a ride. I planned about 10 miles or so, but got to the Wenfordbride turning and thought 'why not' and heade... Read more
Last day of the month ride
We got the shortest bike ride ever, in tonight. Between showers, in the wind and a bit slow.
I've not ridden since 24th or so, which was around 12 miles on the roadie, since then I've just not been feeling the love. The thought of all that cli... Read more
Just walking today
Although it was a nice day, my sciatica is playing up a smidge so walking was the thing to do. I got more than 20 minutes in this morning. I had 2 x 20 minute walks and then spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon talking to various co... Read more
Strange sort of day and an evening ride
Woke up to the 'leave' news. Right oh. Politics is going to get interesting. I doubt that the world will stop spinning and I doubt that England will spontaneously combust. Anyway, Norway and Switzerland are not EU members and they do OK.
Th... Read more
Walking, voting and bike riding in the sunshine
Today was voting day so we got that done and dusted, nice and early. Pencils (hard and not black ones) were in the booths. I hadn't taken a pen with me, rookie mistake, so I spent an age making sure that my cross could be seen. I was less than i... Read more
