I am going to live in a cave as I'm not safe to be around nice people at the moment

We got an email, late on yesterday, from our swap partners saying that they've changed their mind and now won't be swapping. 3 weeks to go and they've cancelled the swap. Not happy. Thank God I hadn't put my notice in or I'd have been scuppered.... Read more
A new (old really but revamped) money saving plan for our household

Kenn has had problems with saving money of late and I've been using my money to bail him out which means that I have not been saving as much. I am a right little hoarder when it comes to saving money and I am, from today, going to implement my "... Read more

Doris said that riding was a bust today. We watched the trees bent nearly to the ground in the high winds and rescued the garden gate from the bus terminus opposite, then the bin, the bin lid, the bin again and the gate again. Flumping on the so... Read more
Wednesday and only just recovering from my 9 days on shift
Wednesday, February 22, 2017      4 comments

I didn't do that 33 minutes of cycling required to hit target on Sunday night. I flopped on the sofa and was tucked up in bed by 10pm and sound asleep. I didn't twitch for 10 hours. Monday I did ride, I went off to Nanstallon, along the tra... Read more
Saturday and back on the bike
Saturday, February 18, 2017      3 comments

Busy work day today. I have been on the simulator ride today and yesterday. The constant hack, hack, of my coughing wore them down so they shunted me off indoors. It's done me a world of good as my shoulder has settled right down and is back to ... Read more
Few days of non blogging as I have the lurg

I have tonsillitis and feel like hell. I do realise, that in the grand scheme of things that tonsillitis is nothing but I do feel ill. Never mind, I've been to work and felt like hell because I need the money. I didn't ride on Sunday as I w... Read more
First day of the half term holiday
Saturday, February 11, 2017      5 comments

What a day. It didn't start well as I was told to work with that Nikita lass, the one who has some made up reason for not liking me. It was suggested that if I wasn't going to get on with her that I would be spoken to in the office, officially. ... Read more

I was due to work Weds, Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun this week but we got some much done yesterday and Wednesday, that I have today off. From tomorrow, I am in for 9 straight days. The weather was OK and I thought I would go up to Bodmin and see w... Read more
Wednesday and back to work for me

I am now in for 12 days on the bounce. Today was a 10am start and it was nice to see familiar faces. I walked across the car park and there was Grace (who is mostly OK, a little moody sometimes but I've never had any problems with her) and Nik... Read more
Week 6 of the winter challenge
Monday, February 06, 2017      3 comments

First things first. Last week, week 5 of my winter challenge gave me 3:59:43 of riding time and 48.22 miles on the bike. That's nearly half an hour over target and, bearing in mind the filthy weather, that's not too bad. Eating, on week 5, sta... Read more
Saturday sunshine

It's cold, but what can you expect in early Feb really. Last night, at about 8.30pm, I could stand it no longer. I got the bike out because the wind dropped to a reasonable level. Non dangerous level at least and the rain had just about sto... Read more
Battening down the hatches

The wind is blowing a hoodie still. Yesterday the dogs got short walks only, 10 minutes or so each time, and every time the wind drove the rain right through our waterproofs. Same today. I found the gate and it's in the shed and we will fix it t... Read more
Rain and wind to start the month off with
Wednesday, February 01, 2017      5 comments

I got a couple of walks in today, no riding though as the wind was blowing that the rain was coming in at some very interesting angles. I did, however, get an hour and a half of guitar practice in while the rain battered against the windows. I p... Read more
January round up
Tuesday, January 31, 2017      5 comments

Well it's not been a bad old month, considering it's January my most hated month. I set myself a target of 15 hours and 30 minutes for getting my backside on my bike saddle for the month and , in my head thought about 186 miles, averaging 12mph ... Read more
Monday. Day 1. Week 5. It rained
Monday, January 30, 2017      5 comments

The weather for today, from the Met Office so no shoddy guesswork from the BBC or anything, was between 95% chance of showers and 70%. However, at 7pm, the likelihood dropped to a mere 20% and I thought that would be my chance for a quick ride. ... Read more
