    2 mice: 1 dead, 1 alive and 1 bird; feathers all over the house.
    Thanks Beans.

    Now go catch up on TdF. I watched the first half of the stage live and missed the rest due to admin/catch up.

    Broken, oh so broken 😢

    Managed a podium, but honestly there isn’t a part of my body without a blister or a graze so despite missing a nights sleep and running for nearly 23 hrs I’ve not really slept.

    Today is pack up the van and head to the local / home whilst hoping the sunburn calms down slightly

    Mad but impressive!

    Slow start here, will do few jobs and walk the dogs.

    Neighbours who want to build their wall are stroppy arrisholes who want it all their own way but we've got it under control after having having words yesterday.

    UAE certainly burnt plenty of powder yesterday whereas JV took a more staid approach.
    What's with Blythe in a Tux?

    Glorious winter day. Finished the last drawer body assembly, now to sand/finish them, and start the built-ins.

    Out for lunch and a trainer ride this arvo down the Big Sur coast.

    I've had about as much sleep as tlw, but haven't run quite as far. 12 year old girls have much more stamina than their middle-aged dads. I reek of woodsmoke and now I've got to put all the camping stuff away.

    Good work with the lunacy, and congrats on the podium. Age group or overall? What's the next thing on the horizon? Marathon des sables?

    Afternoon
    Took a long while to get going today after yesterdays battering by the wind. Managed some climbing before todays stage. Might be some interesting discussion about team players tonight.
