Sunrise Sunday, ultimately faulty?

Woken this morning by a poorly daughter – (barking like a seal on silk-cut). Bless her, she’s suffering this weekend. Calpol and ‘stuff’ are hopefully doing their thing.So a bedtime cuppa for the wife and ‘Milkshake (5)’ for t’other little lady, and off out on the pedals for an hour. The outing was briefly awesome! After a […]

A good old crusty loaf!!

With the challenge set after tweeting GBBO’s Holly a fellow Leicestershirianite(?), I set to bashing some dough round! A good old crusty loaf! As I pummelled the dough I was reminded of the muppet in the white van that terrorised me on the way home the other day. I was in ‘my space’ on the road, with […]

Never in a month of Sundays… !

In January the idea of it was simply crazy and i though it was just “not an option”! The proposition of Cycling to work once a week? Seriously never in a month of Sundays! Seriously not an option: (i) I’d get wet and cold and be a gibbering wreck when I got to work. (ii) […]

This idea sort of harmonises with my recent encounters with ‘awareness‘ etc. Drop the baggage and dance dude! […]

It may be cold…

It may be cold but, ‘get in there’! It has to be done…A week after our islandic ‘week off’ (plus a few days enhanced by paracetamol based products etc) and perhaps we’re back to as near to normality as one might expect.Back cycling to work etc, and mulling over whirling thoughts generated by recent reading… […]

Away with the ferrys…

A week away, over the sea. No digital activity, just sea-air, birds, boats, cloud-scapes and seemingly endless horizons. The kids had a ball, adventures around every corner, great to see inquisitive confidence brewing in both. A v busy week! My core attachment to the sea has been fed again for the time being. With daily […]
