MTB has needed a bit of TLC to keep it going. Very sturdy build really as it has taken nearly 15 years before the original parts have crumbled. Mixed the biking with running and a bit of swimming. Pushed milage up to an 8 mile trip round the lanes last Sunday and hope to build on that over next month.
Meg seems as frustrated as me by the wet weather – dizzy from going round in small circles!?
Been back to the big screen to see Harry Potter and the Simpsons Movie. Very different but really enjoyed both!
Saturday night of Godiva festival provided an eclectic mix of musical entertainment – dropped into all 3 tents. Some bizarre people watching moments too…. ;-)
Current reading Richard Dawkins, God delusion book – really long time ago read the selfish gene – forgotten how much i appreciate his style.
Lush growth in the garden is keeping my green bin full. Starting to harvest my potato crop – tasty and satisfying to lift from soil to pan via a quick wash in the kitchen sink :)
Rearranged the furniture in the dining room which makes the place feel more open – was going to replace the table but not going to bother now.
Getting slightly fed up with finding parked cars obstructing my drive – why do people do this?
Brief visit to York – impressed with the feel of the place and the scale of the Minster. York rail station a real treat when you arrive via Birmingham New Street ;-)
Took the Animal up the M6 to Keele – impressive performance and light on the fuel too.
Food & Drink
Saxon Mill (Warwick) great place for a summers evening – downpours just add to the waterside experience! Also tucked into some tasty tapas at Wildes (Leamington).
