Monday. Walk, Work, Walk, Ride
Yes, I know it's a dodgy photo, but it was dark.
After work today, I walked Toffster and decided that it wasn't cold enough to not ride. Sorry abo... Read more
Getting ready for the week ahead
After a bit of a rubbish week, I was ready for the weekend.
I am feeling very old at work. The 20 somethings are really annoying me. Every time something happens they whoop like kids and are generally very noisy. I can't work like that and fin... Read more
Week one of the new year, done and dusted.
I have set my target for 3 1/2 hours a week of riding through the winter challenge again - or 16 hours for January in case of inclement weather.
I am up on the drag curve as I have ridden for 5 hours this week, over only 3 days. I must be main... Read more
First Blog of 2018
I have been for a bike ride. No surprise there then. Today I got my first 50km ride of the year in so a good start to the 50km a month, every month challenge for the year.
I saw zebras on my ride. Unusual enough to mention, I think. Not someth... Read more
Last Saturday of the year
I had the laziest morning in the world. I had a nice cuppa, flumped on the sofa and eventually took the dog for a walk about 11am. Just wandered across the playing field and into town, discovered that the knitting shop is shut until the 2nd Jan ... Read more
Thursday. -1 so rode on the trail
Hell of a day at work. We had tests, which is no big deal really. I can do them perfectly well but maybe not as fast as the other team members as I have meres irlan syndrome and the differing text type, text size and colours make life a bit tric... Read more
Update on Bluey. He has a loose cassette. Oops. I'll get on to that later or tomorrow. Eric could do with new head bearings and some new cabling. I'll have a look at that too.
I woke up at about 8, after a very rough night. It was well afte... Read more
Xmas Eve with Bluey
Bluey, is making a right racket. No idea why and nothing is loose. I mean Nothing. Very irritating. I'll pull him apart and locate the noisy bit. Not today though. I took him for a steady 10.5 miles which has brought me to 3999.65 miles for the ... Read more
Until my shift patterns start, mid January, I have Saturdays off. After Mid Feb or so I will work every Saturday. Phil isn't about so I would rather have time with him anyway, through the week.
This morning I sorted out the kitchen and walk... Read more
Stinky perfume woman forgot today. Yay. She did bake cupcakes for the team so is mildly redeemed. Gluten free and dairy free too, for those in our team who have food intolerances. I brought sweeties, as I don't really eat them. I did have a cupc... Read more
Hump day again.
So far, so good at work.
We have been moved about in the class room and I am sitting next to different people now. L, to my right and S to my left, both girls. L wears Juicy Couture perfume. Makes me itch. I have come out in a rash because of ... Read more
Well, Friday was a total disaster. I bombed an exam and got totally stressed out. I was fine until about 4pm and it was the last test of the day and I just couldn't cope with it. Differing fonts and text sizes did for my Meares Irlan syndrome. I... Read more
I have survived 4 days so far and doing ok.
One of the learning tools that they use is to play some stupid computer game and then answer online questions during it. Luckily I have found a short cut so that I don't have to endure the stupid gam... Read more
Sunday. Where is the year going?
Today I went in to Lincoln to get passport sized pictures done, for my new job tomorrow. I had to take Kenn with me, which galled a bit. He knocked on at stupid O'clock last night wanting me to take him home. He was in town, seeing 'a friend' an... Read more

Saturday and hovering at 0 degrees
The sun was shining, so naturally I went out for a bike ride. 51km - 31 and a bit miles - in 0 degrees. My Garmin reckons that it was much warmer at 1.1 degrees but my garden thermometer and the one at the cafe at Bardney said 0 and I think that... Read more
