Morning folks. Last shift nearly over. Bit of shut eye coming up followed by late breakfast and taking kids local bowling alley. Chocolate eggs to follow.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    No run as I'm resting the leg still

    A bit of logging this morning then off to pick up my grandparents and show them the house for the first time.

    Then on the bike to my parents as the wife takes everyone else in the car for an Easter egg hunt. My turn for ale so happy days

    Morning folks,
    Happy chocolate egg Bollokcs and be thankful for the days off if you get them. Back hurts today as the flooring was done yesterday, also laced up the back wheel. Off to Gloucester today to see the brother in law, there will undoubtedly be tears from the Mrs but we need to go and see him whilst he is feeling well enough. Have the best day you can everybody and be thankful for the little things.

    Cracking day. Out for several hours just pootling about town with OH and a couple friends. Cafe, plenty of laughs and just the right amount of effort required.

    Now sat here late at night with food additive reaction. Well, wine additive I think. Feckit.

    Saw the world's buffest bull though.

    Nah, Wrynose, much, much worse. Worst place I've been on a bike, both physically and metaphorically. Had a really bad day. Really bad cramp in both thighs, which I never normally suffer from. Had to stop for five minutes on the climb out of Windermere. Really beautiful place to ride though.

    Been up to Kirkstone pass before, via the Struggle.

    Stunning area, turned left after Wrynose and cycled back through the Duddon Valley. Then another long, hardish climb out of there. It was a hard sixty miles.

    Well I had half a bar of Cadburys dairy milk in the car on the way back down South. I guess that counts.

    Probably contains more chocolate than you find in the average easter egg.
