What did you do today?
Rode a few miles up to friends house to see to their cat and chickens as they are on holiday – rode home. Changed the brake cables, striped down brakes and replaced the bar tape on my cx/commuter. Walked 3 miles into town to go to football match, ate steak and haggis pie, watched Kilmarnock win 3-0, walked home – son usually goes with me but he's away to grandpas with mum for a couple of days.
Wasn't happy with bar tape on rhs around brake leaver so took it off when I came home and sorted it – much neater now.
About to make dinner and have a beer, home alone so I can do what I want.

Sat in pub garden, kids ran about.

Kids in bed, cider on ice and 'the wire' on dvd tonight.
Took my son to his football training and then we went to Stamner park after lunch to watch a bit of the racing. A lot of people coming back round to the start finish line saying it was a lot harder than they thought. I've promised him an Islabike for Christmas and decided I need something other than the off road commuter for the weekends. But what….Posted 8 years ago
