Well, that’s Christmas over and done with

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.

About RosieRosie

RosieRosie is a woman of a 'certain age' - whatever the hell that is supposed to mean, known. I feel about 26. I have no idea what I look like as some older woman keeps getting in the way when I look in the mirror. Technically separated now and I'm just waiting for him to move out into his own place. I have a proper wanderlust and have finally moved - using the housing exchange system from - where I started in Inverness, down to Cornwall and back up to the Flatlands and Big Sky Country. It's taken since September 2011, when I left Inverness until May 2017 to get to somewhere that I really like. That's not too shoddy with a swap here and a swap there, saving up again for each move. Not ruling out going home to Norfolk if necessary. Time will tell. For now my mates are just a 90 minute or so, drive down the road. I love my bikes, I love my dogs and I love guitars. They all keep my busy.
