We currently live in Cornwall, but will be moving back to the flatlands in about 2 months time, fingers crossed and God willing. Our last move back to the flatlands crashed and burned just before Christmas so we have everything crossed for this one.
Raffie is an ex athlete, gone to seed, she says, & I am Kenn and have never had the fitness that Raffie used to enjoy.
It really is about time that I updated the whole ‘about us’ page as its well out of date.
Our friends did once tell us that we are too fat to ride a bike. We disagreed and got on with it and how far have we now come? After reading a blog or two on here, on blogspot and on live journal, I reckon that we are thinner and fitter than a lot of people who decided, for one reason or another, to change their lives, get on a bike and get riding. Those friends, BTW, are now ex friends.
Raffie says that she is still a little overweight having stuffedher achilles in 2000 but she’s shifted a three stone and has toned up a whole lot. Women are never happy with their weight IMO. I have been overweight for most of my adult life. As a patient on the kidney transplant list, I need to keep an eye on my weight as I don’t want my weight to compromise getting a new kidney. They won’t transplant if you are overweight, which is no bad thing really as the hospital wants to give the kidney and patient the best chance of success. Currently borderline overweight, so definitely on the right track.
