    Run off pub fun from last night and then bike ride with current wife.

    Maybe a few jobs and then the pub or friends over

    Morning. Had a slice of toast, just off on my half marathon training run of the day. Wifey is doing an afternoon tea for her folks this afternoon so that’ll be…fun. Seems a bit windy out.

    Suitable lie in done, chill for a bit then head out with hounds taking in the joys of the garden centre along the way.

    Mrs. 666 is really motoring on the gardening and planting project now - I'm getting dragged along...

    Left trampoline place, drove for a bit and then realised I hadn’t got my phone, I’d left it on the car roof! It was still there, luckily my phone case is grippy. What a donut!

    misty murky start, wind shifted to mostly sidewind which felt odd, 85k with almost a k of up

    uneventful until i almost got head-on splattered by an idiot in a hire car as i came back down timanfaya, i hope he heard what i called him, if not my hand gestures made the same point, drivers around him weren't impressed by his antics either, not sure if he hit one of them as he weaved back across the road, grrrr

    bask soon

    Afternoon
    Finally no rain, went for a ride only to find it gopping in the next village. Now waiting for the return of grandson from his great grandma’s so we can go for a ride.
    Currently watching the cycling, when did standing at the side of the road with one foot clipped in become a World Championship event.

    Nice out, still a bit breezy, and the tide is straight from the Paragons or Blondie. The sea marshes are underwater.

    Afternoon folks,
    Slowish start was had, then had my old friend round to visit before he drives northward. He'd stayed over at my old dear's and she'd been updating him on her life. We've been mates since the age of 5 so she was very happy to see him.
    Now some pottering to be done around the house.

    Poor sleep meant a lazy start. Turned out nice this arvo at least, out and about for a while.

    Dodged a few jobs on the list, major attack of CBA. Means a busy week coming up though I guess.

    Squeezed in a ride seen as there are blue skies.
    Actual, real blue sky.

    Now need to cut grass.

    Ride completed with grandson, his first on a road bike. He’s not got grips with riding on the drops or the hoods yet, Just keeps his hands on the tops where the panic levers are. He’s keen to ride further which is great.
    Interestingly conversation with him is often one or two words. On the ride he asked about why England owns Northern Ireland( his words) so we discussed the history of Ireland which then led in talking about Christianity and why there are so many St Mary’s schools and churches one of which he used attend.

    That's good. All tweens/teens are monosyllabic with family it seems. Sounds like an interesting discussion!

    Big lunch, glad I didn't go for a starter. Pretty good as pub roast lunches go. Zippy service. Recommend.

    Longest ride of year to date, with local group, longer than initially planned. 5 hours ride time, plus couple of cafe stops for coffee and cake, and local ice cream and coffee. Chuffed the legs coped, must be on the up. 👍

    Time for a couple of deserved beers, refuel, hot soak and catch up with the pro race activity.

    Updated my CV, I'm not very good at blowing my own trumpet so the EPO pushed me and did all the layout and formatting.

    Mmm, I'm hungry now.
    Broccoli irritates me, too much surface area so it goes cold too quick.

    I thought you’d missed the roast parsnips. A good pork belly is fast becoming my favourite.

    This was on a good hot plate, with hot gravy.

    Pork is the king of meats for me.
