I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it yet, but at the end of March I am doing a 75 mile bike ride for charity.  Now even though my job involves quite a bit of cycling I’m not really the fittest of the bunch. So this seemed like a good way of having something to work for, to fill spare time, loose a bit of weight and get a bit fitter. In my part of the country we have been lucky enough not to get as much snow as the rest of the country so I thought today I would be fairly safe doing a road/cycle path route today, about 15 miles was my plan. needless to say within a mile of my front door I came off…..Luckily on a cycle path and not too heavily as I had slowed down due to a slushy patch, but now have a sore bum and leg.  Only did 12 1/2 miles, but I was sore, achy and cold by that time….

I also had an interesting discussion with M (one of my very good friends) Now a few months ago I had a tattoo done on my left hip of a white rose with a green celtic style stem.  I love it, but recently I have been thinking of having another one done either adding to what I have or a small one elsewhere on my body.  So M today asked me how much it hurt because she was thinking of having one done!  Now this took me completely by surprise as when I had mine done she swore blind she would never disfigure her body in such a way.  So my pain rating was 7 on a scale of 1-10, she baulked at that!!  But I do feel that she will go for it this year.  As will I – when I’ve decided on my design that is.

    Hi there! This blog post could not be written much better! Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I’ll send this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read.
    Thank you for sharing!
