Been an odd day so far…
Popped to the local GP re a recurring abdominal pain, seems the linguini hernia is back or has popped again, so it looks like I’m off to get stabbed by a person in a mask, again. Then nipped into Buxton for my annual eye check, only to be told that I now need glasses for driving and for reading.
Now afraid to leave the cafe just in case!
How’s your day going?Posted 4 years agoBreganteSubscriber
Well, our much planned Christmas pub ride is cancelled due to biblical weather so I’m contemplating going for a run instead. But the house is very cosy and I still have a selection of Frodsham brewery ales to get through while the wife and kids are battling the sales crowds. What to do?
Hope your health issues get resolved. Glasses are just part of getting older. I quite like mine now 8)Posted 4 years agowittonweaversMember
Following the cancellation of the Monday Pub Ride i’m now going to take niece and nephew to the cinema. Kids don’t want to watch Frozen so its Harry Hill’s movie this afternoon…
Cancelling the ride was a no brainer. Cancelling the drinks in the pub was a schoolboy error!Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Woke at 6 thinking an early ride might be in order…
Then peeked out the window.
So, did a few hours work to get a head start for next Monday. (China don’t have Xmas hols…).
Watched TV with the kids.
This afternoon I took them swimming.
To be fair, every day this hols me & the kids have been out every day, even if it’s just a 30min bike ride, or a stunt skooter ride/skate/session, or a walk.
The Wife meanwhile, has started to fuse into the Sofa.Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
I feel thoroughly ashamed of myself at the mo. I had planned a ride this afternoon when the weather was forecast to brighten up. It got to 14:00 so had a chat with my mate and we decided to wimp out as the weather looked like it wasn’t going to improve – still howling a gale and pudding it down, so went to the supermarket instead. But half an hour later the sun and blue skies were out! Turns out it would gave been a nice ride. So my New Years resolution is to MTFU and ride whatever the weather.

Woke up to a howling gale with zero cloud base and driving rain. Forecast suggested small window of opportunity at 2pm. When it was still blooming windy. Still turned out alright
Prob last ride of the year for me. And it was a good one.
The eye thing? My optician said to me ‘basically Alex at our age, we’re just managing decline’ which cheered me up no end!Posted 4 years agomattjgSubscriber
Just dragged my Yelli up to Coldharbour on the road (quite a long climb) for 3 pints of Beautiful South with a couple of the Cocks at The Plough. Got slung out early as the landlord’s son running the bar had to pick someone up from the station, fair do’s it’s that kind of pub. Blast back down the road, it’s a good run, stopping to take pics where the recent storms had blown a tree down bridging the road from the classic Surrey Hills banking.
In its own way, barely a ‘ride’ but one of the best rides of the year. The spirit was there.
@OP, glasses are no biggie.Posted 4 years ago
