Thursday. A good day all round
We were up just after light and got the dogs up the field and walked. Well, they ran about with the ball and we stood at the top of the slope and threw the ball down. Dylan not overly impressed with the hard frost but Toffee is an old hand at cr... Read more
Hump day in the sun
After yet another rough night, I was up at 7am and swigging coffee. Dogs got taken up to the top field where we watched them hoon about like mad things for half an hour and then brought them back when they were tired.
Tired dogs meant that I c... Read more
Tuesday 17/1/17. It didn't rain. Yay
I woke with a headache, so gingerly sipped 2 decent coffees and felt fragile for an hour or two. Kenn had walked the dogs, but I walked again with him (and them) and we got electric, gas and posted a letter. We then went to the library and print... Read more
Monday, new week and new challenge
This morning was dull and boring weather wise. However, not windy and probably not going to rain. The met office gave out a 10% chance of precipitation, so about noon I got the bike out and went out for 20 just 20 minutes.
I got so into my mu... Read more
Saturday and sunday have been a bit of a washout. I have felt as rough as anything, the weather has been pants with wind and rain, not to mention the bitter cold.
I am starting my cycling challenge again from tomorrow but with an average of... Read more
Friday the 13th has been a good day
Firstly, as I know some are waiting on this news as much as we have been, the Lincs HO has been on the blower and it's a yes. We need to get paperwork in and then start packing. ... Read more
Thursday with wind, rain, hail and an unexpected bike ride
Today we did a big old tidy up. We put the kitchen cupboard back up, did a bit of chucking out of stuff that the previous tenant left and that we thought might be handy, but after 10 months it hasn't been so it's gone to the household recycling ... Read more
Tuesday 10th, more wind and rain
I took Eric, my CX bike, and Kenn's CX in to have brake services today. I am happy to do gears but my brakes were not right at all, so I got them all sorted out and now they are lovely. I wasn't expecting them back until 5 so we made other plans... Read more
Monday 9th. Week 2, day 2. Raining again
I woke this morning and had to check my reflection in the mirror. I felt so rough that I wondered if I had been visited by the Lost Boys (the Kiefer Sutherland lost boys, not the J M Barrie ones) and that I was now officially a vampire. My refle... Read more
Day 1, week 2 of cycling challenge
The weather is filthy, I feel like hell-in-a-hat and we've stayed in all day, except for walking the dogs. Tea has been drunk. Mushrooms (with a little extra light Philly stirred in a a small blob of sweet chilli sauce) on a round of toast. Deli... Read more
Day 7, week 1 of my 2017 riding challenge
I wasn't going to ride. The weather was filthy. The met office gave out pouring rain giving way to thick fog. NOT riding weather, if you ask me. We stayed in and did crosswords instead.
Anyway, about 2pm the sun made an appearance and the r... Read more
6th day of week 1 of the 2017 riding challenge
It rained. Absolutely poured. Gloom. The Met Office forecast said that there was only a 10% chance of rain between 1 and 2pm. I thought, that's my window for the day. I am well over my 3 hour 30 minute target for the week and was sitting at 4:46... Read more
5th day of the year and a bike ride in the sunshine
The BBC tell lies. Rain all day with a break in the weather at noon my bum! It was fresh, cold with blue skies and fluffy white clouds for the most part of the day.
We got out on the bikes at 11.45am and I did a smidge over 10 miles in 50 m... Read more
Lazy day today
I have no idea what I've eaten, but I truly wish I hadn't eaten whatever it was. I've had a day on the sofa, reading and surfing the web. Don't want to stray too far. Seriously debating stuffing a load of bread to see if that helps.
Bikes a... Read more
Jan 3rd. Bitter out...
.... so we defrosted the car, went shopping and then for a ride. As you do. 3 for 3 so far this year.
Kenn desperately needs new cycling shoes. His are about 2 years old, they were from Aldi and they have done a good job but are giving up t... Read more
