A Night Under The Stars……………….Getting Wet Through!!!

Ok, Ok, I know I said it was wanging it down. I didn’t realise the wanging it down was going to get a whole lot worse and turn into a storm. Yep instead of some random digger waking me up at silly o clock (see yesterdays blog) I awoke to find my feet getting wet -the rain was blowing in, in all directions, bliss. For the second night in a row I did my ‘wander round the house starkers’ routine. This time to shut all the windows to stop everything from getting soaked. Not so much a balmy summers evening, more bleeding bonkers. Still it finally cooled down -sort of.

No bike ride today due to the still healing nicely knee (if it still feels like this next week I might try a sneaky few miles!!) so I had a little play with my camera instead, I haven’t done it in a while. I was quite pleased with some of the shots, all taken of flowers I received for my wedding anniversary. But I seem to be confusing my aperture from my f-stop etc and  I’m beginning to wonder if I need to re-read the various books I have or just not bother- maybe finding my own way is best. Practise makes perfect and all that.

I might shut the windows tonight

and maybe get some sleep……

Bring it on!


Snow Bored…………..




It’s bad enough that I  can’t run -I’m seriously  fed-up with my stupid knee. By the time I get past the ‘evil receptionist’ to get a docs appointment to sort out a scan it will be christmas!!! I can’t go on like this I was born to run (well actually I was born to be dead clumsy and trip up and fall over a lot- a girl can dream!) I need to be out there pounding the pavements – I’m going mad!! I suppose the situation is not helped by not being able to get on the bike thanks to the dodgy weather – I know other people are risking it  but I’m a wuss (a clumsy wuss). So at the moment I’m walking everywhere and anywhere. To be honest it’s more of a march than a walk, in fact some might call it a slow run ( I know what my physio would call it – suicide!!) I walked to work in 20 minutes this morning – over a mile and a half in the snow and I did a similar pace coming home ( the long way round!) but it’s still not running! Oh well at least I am doing something -I wonder if they do snow tyres for the bike……………………..

More Janathon miles logged

Mmm -what will I do for Janathon tomorrow

Bring it on

Bloody Bored……………..



Well today I did something I rarely do – I gave in. I don’t like having time off work but there was no way I was in a fit state to make it  – I did get up to go but for once (not sure what came over me) common sense prevailed. If only I could be like Boris – he’s gone off for a service and a bit of straightening out and he’ll be all shiny and new tomorrow. If only!!

I’m bored, bored,bored, bored bored, booorrreeeddddd! I don’t do sitting still – and even though I kept myself busy with a bit of R.E, P.E and ICT planning (a-hem), it still feels like the longest day in, well in a long time. Still the only way I’m going to be back on the bike sooner rather than later is to rest and recover – but I’ve done 3 whole days. How much longer is it going to take? I wonder if my physio can leave my knee and straighten my shoulder and neck out ? Now there’s an idea…………………………………….

I’ve been good today

Even better tomorrow

Bring it on
