Hikes and Bikes…………….

So we’re  home and having clocked up 20+ miles of walking in the last 3 days – not bad for a first attempt at a walking holiday with a 12 year old in tow – time for a rest. Well at least until the morning when the bike beckons!! At least Hubby and I have one outdoor interest in common (ok – it’s only the second time we’ve been out together but it defo won’t be the last!) Unfortunately Hubby doesn’t share my love of walking/running in the same way I can’t stand his love of playing golf – boooring!

Hubby arrived in Hathersage last night and we had a great meal(another one!) before settling down to watch the rugby (we have rugby in common too!)  on the ipad -no sky TV in the pub – thank god for the ipad. Cue some very strange looks from the locals – Friday night is rugby night in the Earnshaw house – no matter where we are!!! So this morning we had our last breakfast, fed the goats and pigs one last time and packed up to head home via a stop off in Castleton so I could take some pics that I didn’t get a chance to do earlier – unfortunately although I got the pics I didn’t get to walk the route I wanted. Hubby’s Adidas trainers weren’t really up to scrambling up a rocky path – did he wear them on a purpose….. Mmmm, maybe. But then if he tried to get me to play a round a of golf I’d probably turn up without any clubs so fairs fair!!!

Just like Hubby though I now have a choice of which bike to ride – although both mine can both do more than one thing!!! Strange thing is I nearly chucked my now nearly new bike out last week – it was one of hubby’s cast off’s and had clearly seen bet a days – however apparently it once was a bloody good  bike………………I wasn’t convinced especially as it’s a Peugeot (didn’t know they made bikes as well!) However after a couple of hours of  ‘TLC’ it looks amazing so hopefully I will get on with it better than I did Peter (nasty Peugeot car I’ve just got rid of) Watch this space……
