    Hazy but mild.
    So many things to do, so little time.

    Hopefully the postman will come bearing parcels with carbon stuff in them.

    Rest day in the Tour - boo.

    Sad to leave TLW? Stunning area of the world.

    Hazy and mild here, due to be hazy and warm later. Feeling a touch hungover.

    Lots of emails flying about over the weekend. Unfortunately I didn't see any of them because I was cycling around the countryside attending BBQs.

    I have a big tipi tent arriving today and I have done nothing about levelling the ground where I will pitch it.

    I did a very redneck thing on Saturday and pulled a tree stump out with my pick up!
    It felt very manly.

    Hot day yesterday and spent most of it with a pint in hand. Need to behave now.
    Possible ride this evening!

    Assuming it went well if it felt manly, no videos of the stump winning and ripping the back off the pick up.

    Cripes, lawks a mercy, that was a hot one. I was gurning like a French climber losing valiantly to a Luxembourgish rouleur up a hill.

    Dropped Mrs B³ and mini at Gatwick this morning, they're off to Orlando - Universal studios. I'd rather not, so I didn't.

    Good call, we did it a few years ago - no desire to go back (luckily part of a trip to see In laws over there so not a total waste). Although not quite as good as the time when my two booked for us all to go to Cyprus then realised they had to get back for something or other related to sixth form applications and left me there on my own in the middle of the World Cup :)

    Once you get into the spirit of things it’s fun. So long as you don’t suffer from motion sickness.

    Full American breakfast every morning with lashings of coffee, Steak for dinner. Beautiful weather, manicured lawns, swim in the evening, shuffling around the shopping mall in your comfy holiday shorts and flip flops. What’s not to like.

    Strimmed. mowed, swept, plumbed, hydraulicked, cooked.
    Now farqed.

    Mrs P bought a Pineapple. I thought 'here we go' [acid intolerant me] but it was quite sweet and I only needed half a bottle of Gaviscon.

    I'd go back to Key Largo in a heartbeat, drive down to Key West again. But that's basically the Caribbean. Its the whole mall/theme park thing I didn't like.

    Hot, you think it? Nothing this is. Feel the coolness in your mind.

    Still warm here. Got the drive/path lights sorted. No more tripping over in the bloody dark!

    But you must look great after that makeover and annual service?
