Thus it begins!
For me this week is going to be about having fun while solving problems, with a healthy dose of looking at things in a new light…
Our trip along the Strawberry Line was a delightful way to start the week. That is, once half the shed had been emptied into the garden to extract the sadly neglected bikes! It really is amazing how much stuff you can squeeze into a 6x8ft box (maybe that time playing tetris wasn’t wasted after all).
With pumped tyres, a couple of chicken sarnies wrapped in a makeshift coolbox (thank you Sneaky for the loan of your timed feeder ice pack) and a slathering of sun cream, it was time to cycle off into the distance.
I think Adele’s post covers the rest of the trip, suffice to say that with all the important day out boxes ticked (pint at lunch, nibble of local food – cheddar in this case, something interesting to photograph) I’m not going to complain about the rather sore buttocks… Well, not much anyway.
Tonight I’ve been applying the “looking at things in a new light” principal to one of the skills I’ve inadvertently acquired over the years – planning trips, only this time for other people… I’ll ramble about this more later, but I’ve had my travel agent hat on (no it doesn’t have corks) and have been out on the hunt for those elusive deals.
