Rides,Rugby,Ramblers and Running……..

So after last nights ridiculously short blog – sorry but I was just a little bit too giddy. Well it’s not every day that Wakefield Trinity beat the supposedly mighty Leeds Rhinos and we didn’t just beat them – we stuffed em, shame I’m not a work to wind a few people up!

Anyway it was a busy day all round – Jack had his friend round for the day and we had a bike ride planned. The weather was doing it’s best to spoil our plans but we don’t give up easily in the Earnshaw household. We did however set off later than intended, mainly due to Hubby playing hide n seek with the shed keys – I mean come on, why didn’t I think to look in the peg bag for them, such an obvious place……………..

So eventually we set off, the rain lashed down and the wind blew – typical Summer Holiday Weather.Still the lads didn’t complain. Within 10 minutes we were down by the canal and they were in their element helping to work the lock to let two boats through. We carried on along the riverbank, sheltered under the motorway bridge to have lunch (summer!!) then they made a den in the woods and played rugby before heading back.We could have done without the ‘rambler rage’ on the way back – cos they really own the footpath – not!! Nearly four hours of fun all of the cost of a picnic – perfect day out, even got back in time to watch the gymnasts win a medal!

Yes the Olympics are going down well in our house, in fact I’m getting addicted, this red button thing is ace. Always something to watch. However it does have it’s downside -Jack knows how it works. It doesn’t matter what sport I’m watching Jack manages to find the women’s beach volleyball channel- and it’s not their sporting prowess he’s interested in – boys!!

So after a hectic day yesterday it’s been a much quieter day today(sneaked in a nearly 6 mile run though) -sleeping beauty slept until half ten and I managed to watch the equestrian thing (not sure what you call it) some diving, swimming and arrow firing before Jack found the sand strippers – sorry but the lack of clothing is really started to naff me off.

A great couple of days

More Olympics and an art gallery tomorrow

Bring it on
