Not a big Crimbo fan really. Over commercialisation is not something that I am keen on. Hearing kids going on and on that their parents that they must have a new iPad or laptop or x, y & z games. No please or thank you just ‘I must have those for Christmas’ rather saddens me.
We got out and rode for a short while on Christmas Day, I got a few miles in Christmas eve too. A couple of punctures on Christmas day slowed us down a bit. The second one was not far from home so we walked the final half a mile or so as we couldn’t be bothered fixing it, in the dark, when 10 minutes walking followed by a nice, civilised cup of tea could be done in less time.
Boxing day was all walking, last night – Sunday – I got a nice 13.5 miler in and today I rode only 8.65 miles, I did walk for 3 hours whether it was just walking the terriers, geocaching with the younger hounds or taking Kenn’s JRT Poco for a brisk 30 minute walk. Over the Christmas period I’ve been pretty active.
Since last posting, my mileage count has got itself up to 3633 miles. I need another 17 and hope to sort that tomorrow. Such a silly figure to stop on, don’t you think. I’ve gone past my 3500 target, added 100 and gone past that too, so I’ve added another 50. My December target is 6 miles over so far with at least 2 more ride days in the offing, according to the Met Office online weather forecast, maybe even 3, if I’m lucky.
It’s the middle of the night here. I would have been in bed a while ago, but was really shocked by the death of Lemmy. So sudden. Diagnosed with agressive Cancer on the 26th and dead on the 28th. Rather makes you think.
