Fair-weather Fans and Flat Tyres

s1Just where did the last 2 weeks go, even the extra day off didn’t help, another two weeks of not having  a minute to spare has passed by. Don’t get me wrong, I like being busy but a little minute to catch my breath would be so nice. I don’t suppose the weather has helped, due to the never-ending running, rugby, cycling and golf the house is always over run with kits,clubs,shoes and bikes, but add this weeks non-stop ‘April showers in May’ and mud, grass and even sand add to the fun. Bliss.

Then there’s been the maths revision, having decided to take the plunge and opt for the higher GCSE paper, the race is on to catch up with all the things the foundation course doesn’t cover. So now my head is spinning. Soh-cah- toa, surds, quadratic equations, cyclic quadrilaterals the list goes on and on and onzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Roll on the final exam on the 17th June, I can have my life back!  Do we really put sixteen year old kids under this much pressure!?!?!

So to today and thankfully, Summer has arrived, for the first time in weeks it was a dry Saturday morning cycle, and also for the first time in weeks, we didn’t get lost! Granted I got a flat tyre that wouldn’t re-inflate, even the spare inner tube wouldn’t play, and I had to run the last three miles home with bike in hand, but it was a beautiful ride. The downside of the beautiful weather was the fair-weather fans were out in force. You know the kind, you never see them in the winter, autumn and spring are a real struggle too. But a hot summer day and there they are hogging the highway (well path, but it doesn’t have the same impact!) Pedalling, plodding and dog walking as if they’ve got all the time in the world with not so much as a sorry, thankyou or kiss my arse when you stop for their killer dog, stop to let them through or shout morning as they pass by. Some people are just plain rude (says me with passerby Tourette’s -I forget they can still hear me when I start to rant!).

A lovely day in the sunshine

More of the same tomorrow

Bring it on
