There has been plenty of bad news on this Forum of late. So here is some good news! My new Grandson, Harley, arrived four days ago, weighing 8.4lbs at Manley Hospital. Mother & baby doing fine, as are Grandparents plus Dad and brother Kai. Doing our duty in Oz at present, staying in Northern Sydney ( on the edge of a cliff!). Borrowing the son-in-law's MTB (I know) and riding around Narrabeen Lake, which is flat, but getting back home requires some serious slopes with the front wheel lifting :shock:

The weather is lovely for late Autumn, clear skies and 21degrees :) Back to Blighty next week to enjoy the full effect of a British Summer.

    I have been told that Grandchildren are the reward for not murdering your offspring.

    It's also revenge upon your offspring, so they can have all the headaches & worries you had!
    Remember that you are an Englishman and thus have won first prize in the lottery of life.

    I know i ve contributed to the doom and gloom of late, but thats just life, which is why cake stop is the best forum on here, lets have some good to go with the bad. Ying and Yan.

    Cake stop comes in for a lot of stick from the other threads on here, but IMHO its the one that potrays proper human emotion the best.
