Woopee !

Just about to set off to Blackpool,my phone went "I would like to tell you that you was succesful and I would like to offer you the position" - Beautiful ! It gets better,working Mon & Tues , then off till Sunday. As it turns out , me driving home on monday is a godsend,so much stuff has been forgotten !

Waiting Waiting .........

Had an interview yesterday,at a semi conductor plant which is only 4 miles away , that i didnt even know existed! I find out today if I was succesful,which is a barbed thing , because we are off to Blackpool today for a week , and I will start on Monday ! I am also fearing for my diet , whilst we are away !

More Cycling

Well, I have just sat here for an hour , reading Bryhers Blog from the beginning.Ok she is a ladee,but we have so much in common ! I got a sick kind of satisfaction finding out she is human , and had the odd slipup along the way(just like me)! Go Bryher , you are an inspiration.
Anyways , what is this weather about! I got in the car at12.30,and it was 31C !
So what did we do,had a little quality time together in the loft (so Hot!) then off on our bikes we went. We ended up doing 6 and 1/4 miles on track and road , with some bloody big hills involved.
We got back,picked the girls up from school,and then went back out on the bikes again for another 3 and 1/2 miles,a total of 9 3/4 miles today! Both Mine and Angies legs were like lead ,we were totally exhausted. Im not sure if you can see our workout on runkeeper,here is the link , not sure if it will work ! http://www.runkeeper.com/ui/dashboard
Yes it does work for me , if you click a date , a map will come up ,and you can view the route !
