Fitted a kiddie seat onto my bike and went to Walton to the bookshop, they had a book for me there, Robert Elms’s paperback. On the way back we saw somebody’s villa in the shape of a mosque near Shepperton Marina, we played on swings and had a laugh. We then rode some more.Posted 8 years ago
We also washed the car, together, me and my daughter. Such a star, she is.
Simply, it’s been a lovely day, even football results went the right way and annoyed a few mates 😉woody2000Subscriber
Set off riding this morning at 8.30 or so, had a 3hr spin then went to my mates demo day and tried to break (not really!) an Alpitude, an Altitude and a Cube AMS. Free cake, coffee and pie ‘n’ peas too – happy days. Got back home about 3.45, knackered but smiling 🙂

AM – watching son play in U6’s football game. Christ, some parents can be a bit too competitive. Think they need to consider playing themselves so their kids can stand on the side line and offer them ‘helpful advice’ 😐
PM – scratching my forearms to pieces (along with Chase and others) trying to jigsaw rocks into some kind of rideable track up at Stainburn.Posted 8 years ago
