Kite

August 29, 2015

When I was seven or eight years old, Mum and Dad took my brother and I to the kite festival in Bristol. I bought a kite with my pocket money and not long after while flying it, the string snapped and a tree ate my kite. I’ve not flown a kite since (due to a lack of kite, not some deep seated trauma).

Last weekend I went back to the kite festival, close to thirty years later and bought another kite. Today was its first outing. It was amazing.

(The string didn’t snap and while the wind lasted, it was ace, even though the photo above was taken moments before it crashed).

I knew there was a reason I drank all that beer. Besides of course, for the purposes of drinking all that beer.

Back on it.

Slowly.

But I’ve got to start somewhere I guess. Serves me right for not doing any running for best part of two months off.

Still here

Hello everyone. That last post cost me a years worth of hosting, so I guess I had better try and get some value for 2015 too.

Go internets!

Birthday weekend

May 18, 2014

Our first holiday as a little family just down the M5 at Burnham on Sea:

• Tea and biscuits in bed
• Minifigs
• Walking along the seafront with an ice cream
• Al fresco beer
• Barefoot on the beach
• Chip shop chips
• Building sandcastles with Ted
• Forty-eight hours with my lovely family

Followed by Ted going straight to sleep this evening, a massive bowl of nachos for tea, accompanied by a nice bottle of wine and Hot Fuzz on the telly.

Perfect.

Hangover

March 25, 2012

Have spent the whole day on the sofa rotating between the following:

1.  Dozing;
2.  Complaining about my head/tummy ache, and;
3.  Running to the bathroom.

Missed out on Running Club with BMF, a lot of glorious sunshine and a lot of stuff on TV due to items 1 and 3 above.

Total waste of a day.

BOOM!

October 3, 2011

Had one of them sessions at BMF tonight. 15 burpees into a hill sprint x4 sets. Lots of running, tricep dips on the parallel bars in the park (I can’t do them) and with a set of tabata squats thrown in at the end of the session.

Sat in the car barely able to work the pedals with my shaking, wobbly legs.

And then this song (courtesy of Matt) came on the stereo. BOOM!
