First: It's my mum's birthday tomorrow. Happy birthday mum! We had a wee lunch on Sunday at a little place we all know and love, and it was typically superb.
Second: Heather and Dave produced their long awaited, slightly overdue and very beautiful baby girl this week. Rose is welcomed into the world and has already several adoring aunts and uncles just waiting for baby sitting duties.
Third: I have smooth legs. As I type, I have been de-leg-fuzzed for 24 hours. No complaints so far, but Ii was promised by someone (Jo?) that ladies love smooth legs. We'll see.
Fourth: New Black Keys album. Supreme as ever, go buy.
Fifth: Managed 2 rides this week end. Both short and to the point. One as a tester for the H bars in technical situations, the second as a blast around Stoorie Brae to further investigate the 'alterations' which have occurred with my co-conspirator Chris. To be honest, not all bad. A few gems have been wiped from the hill side, but there is still plenty left and although a little cheeky, still remarkably good riding. No wonder we grew up breaking bike parts and with no fear of steep drops...
Sixth: The race chair is taking shape. I found my stash of bike stickers and they have been liberally applied to try and take attention away from the washed out avocado netting on the sit and lean sections of the low chair. Its better and will be pressed into service soon at MTB Marathon Merida Rhayader V3 for me...
Lets keep it smooth like silk.
