Woah, so being honest, I went off looking for a domain, and I discovered this one was taken, and then I though, hold on do I already one this, and it transpired, I do, and have for the past 8 or 9 years.
I then looked to see what was here, and forgot about this old blog and it’s content, I might go back and read some of it.
I remember, I used to it brain dump and clear my head. Maybe I will do this again.
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky, Then like my dreams they fade and die. Fortune’s always hiding, I’ve looked everywhere.
So Covid is still with us R is less than one, so there is more relaxation and now we’ve got a concept of bubbles. Social groups in same cases where people can help each other. I hope, that as ever, the public continue to behave (which in general they really have done) and the lid is kept on this thing as much as we can. Talking to a few people the bubble is giving is giving hope and happiness, so let’s go with it.
In my little world, the two of us continue to work away – me from home, her part home/hospital. We’ve continued to do shopping for the parents, but I think the team is now right to back that off, pending another wave. If it is, we will then do what we can.
That’s it for now, hope you like the new theme, I’ve gone basic a bit.
The goal for this week was to make it to South Shields and back…. We did it!
So it’s good to be able to report that we made it, South Shields and back and no one got hurt! But I am tired, and my butt hurts…. Eva says her new saddle is great so that’s one less thing for her to worry about. It became clear in the middle of the week that this would be achieveable to so its great that we did.
The weather tried to conspire against us, but again we managed to miss the rain, and the hail… but we did seek shelter at one point…. The park has a small railway and the station was a good place to keep dry!
This photo was taken just before the heavens opened, as we’d relocated from park benches!
So that’s another bike ride complete, as we map our way around Hebburn and Jarrow. At the start of the week, I thought about we might make it to South Shields by the end of the week 10 mile (ish) return. I thought it would be a push but it seems not.
Electric is making all the difference, and for the past two days its been 6 miles, and its been ok. Today with the wind was more of an effort, but we are just in week one.
So I’ve already posted about the bike, and I might have mentioned its bigger than I expected, bigger to the extent it doesnt work well in my shed! I’ve been looking at storage and its no fun. Nothing really works, so I’ve ended up with another shed.
I’d prefered something different, but it will have to do. I even went for a ride to the park to pop the bike next the bike store I liked and nope, not even close.
So, I find my self sat here for another week of working from home and my mind has gone off on a little wander. Now, its not because there is nothing to do, far from it.
Whilst the image is representative, it’s definetly not true. No Mac, No clear desk, no coffee… no plant… the list goes on.
But, it’s meant to represent working from home, which is the well and truely the new norm and it continues to the be the case, with no real end in sight. Best guess now, for me, September or later as not essential and I can work from home, but there would need to be changes, like moving upstairs etc to work. I would like the dining table back I think!
But, to be fair, its been a workable solution to two of us working from home and its ok. But it will probably move on.
Cycling continues this past week and extended the range I’ve been doing with each new ride which is pleasing. I shall continue to build from the starting point and see where it goes. The other half has now also purchased a bike to so we will be able to go out for a wander together soon.
So it was a bit windier out there than i expected, but todays ride was to the parents and back. Navigation care of Google Maps, took me an unexpected route, but it avoided roads etc, and was more fun that I expected.
First attempt at Strava too…. I was king of the mountain until it caught i was on an E-bike
Looking at the above think there is more in Strava, so I might not us Relive again
