    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?

    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)

    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!

    I’m starting a 36 hour shift tomorrow morning. 😐

    Just popping out for a walk then it’s sofa, books & whisky in an attempt to delay the inevitable.

    A bit of a cold just before Xmas has settled into a nice chest infection with added sinusitis which has rather ruined my festive riding plans. So far cancelled, road bike pub run, MTB big day in the dales and MTB night ride. Beginning to feel aggrieved!

    you cancelled a long planned ride because of weather? that would only make the ride more epic, you could have always ended it earlier. But WW has it right, if you all had sign off from partners for the day you should have at least gone to the pub.

    I went for a piss this morning and it was bright red.

    Freaked me out something rotten, until I remembered I ate a pack of these last night:

    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.

    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. Fortune favours the brave!

    Just come back from our Christmas ride at Swinley. I’m so unfit I manages to cramp up in both thighs, then I lost both brakes and had an “over the bars” moment into some trees.
    Good fun ride though.

    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!

    hi Alex,
    Are you the same Alex Leigh I sold a Bird 60 double carbon to?

    My little terrier Eddie ate a 45g bar of 72% dark chocolate laxative this morning. It was enough to kill him.

    Got him to the vets in time for some emetic therapy (drugs to make him puke). He’s back home now very tired but very alive.

    All well that ends well Op.

    People are picky about the choc % in their laxatives?!?

    Glad the dogs OK though.

    Strangely they are. This was my mad vegan sister who was staying with me for a few days. Her weird eating habits do weird things to her insides. Hence the need for dairy free laxatives!

    Eddie is currently assaulting ‘sid the squid’ so it’s situation-normal.

    Woke up and cancelled my ride. Weather was absolute shite and local rivers are close to bank bursting.
    Ended up picking up a 11 week old springer to be friends with our 12 month old. So far it’s been entertaining in a mental doggie sort of way.

    Bloody hell John. I am indeed. It’s still going BTW although I learned quite a bit about repairing wings after a mid air. Not doing much sloping at the moment. Not enough time for that and riding….

    As we are asking questions to Alex, are you the same Alex Liegh that used to frequent the Seat forums?

    That’s not me. I did frequent the Skoda Yeti forums for a bit but got out just in time. Nor, in case anyone feels the urge to enquire, am I the english fashion model that is the no.1 return if you google my name 😉

    Sorry, you seem to have a popular name 🙂

    me and the wife went out for a café ride in the wind/rain, as we did yesterday and the day before.
    we are in training for a busy touring year in 2014. I love my wife being my cycling partner now…everything seems a lot brighter.

    A window of opportunity tomorrow, perhaps. 😀 Rain due to stop early afternoon, fingers crossed.

    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.
