Few things I found out whilst they were away. Esmie, one of two cats doesn't like me. She left as soon as they went and has yet to return. Libby, our black lab also much prefers it with the boys around - she's been very sulky indeed! And Frankie, the other cat is very lazy and is happy as long as there's food!
An old school mate is down. He does Ironman comps for fun (!) and likes to get up early to train! So I've been leaving the house at 6.45 each morning to meet him for a blast on the road bikes. Getting used to it now - great way to start the day. We cycled up Burlawn Hill yesterday, which is 28 degrees, very steep indeed! I think there should be a badge waiting at the top! Jim's just come back from the Alps, so I've been practicing my slip streaming!
So this is it, the bank holiday weekend. Wish us luck! See you on the other side.
