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.

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
Quiet day today
Kenn was away to Plymouth for tests today so I walked the hounds before breakfast and then discovered that I'd forgotten to do my overnight oats. I really fancied them too, so I did them and put the jar into the fridge and had overnight oats for... Read more
The July Metric Half Century Ride Day
It poured all yesterday afternoon and evening and all morning today as well. I got very wet, out with the dogs this morning so a morning ride was never going to happen. I did housey things instead, having waved Kenn off to dialysis.
After lunc... Read more
Walking in the rain, soggy dog and muddy trainers.
Kenn was asleep this morning, Millie too. I grabbed my clothes and dressed in the bathroom - really quietly - and snuck out of the door with Toffee. He's my little shadow so he followed me out of the bedroom. I can't do anything in peace, Toffee... Read more
Day off - anyway, it's raining
Millie-dog is asleep, on my legs and I don't want to disturb my old girl. My right foot is definitely aware of her being there, I could do with a trip to the loo and I really want a cup of tea. Mustn't disturb my sleeping 19 year old though. She... Read more
Another bike ride tonight
Today was roasting hot. The dogs were walked early before the heat got up, then it was bill paying, shopping (new innertubes x 4, plants, 120 litres of multi purpose compost, wild bird food - amazed the little stuffers can still fly, the amount ... Read more
1st ride of June
I know that it's shocking that this is the first day that I have got out.
The hills and the narrow roads with huge, high hedges are really depressing me. I'm not that great at the best of times and the thought of riding the Camel Trail again i... Read more
Last day of the month ride
27 miles and 3 punctures. One was a dodgy innertube, by the way that the hole looks. It looks like it was faulty.
I rode from home to Bodmin, popped to the bank and then back to the cafe turning, then headed off to Wenfordbridge for a coffee. ... Read more
Riding in the sun again
I rode a good 23.8 miles in the sun today, 16 yesterday and 35 the other day, so I've been riding.
I had a doctors appointment on Wednesday morning. Very unimpressed with the doc. He seemed to think, after reading my notes, that I was 62. I co... Read more
Lovely sunny day and not much done
I had a lot planned for today. Bike ride, decent walk with Toffee dog, jewellery making, bit of gardening, laundry, that sort of thing. However after putting out the laundry and doing the washing up, my neighbour popped around and asked if I had... Read more
Back from a lovely dog walk
Yesterday was a total write-off of a day. A migraine, hot and cold sweats and general lurginess kept me tucked under the duvet. I did make it to the living room and did some more sleeping on the sofa, with my Jack Russell. I surfaced at around h... Read more
Still look like a toad but......
...... the postman arrived with some little Tibetan silver owl charms. 30 of them to be precise. I noticed that the outer polythene envelope had air holes in it. I laughed and laughed and laughed.
I checked inside the packet and had a quick co... Read more
