Cycling and sleeping

After a week off from cycling (to get over a tummy bug and to attend the IWMW 2012 conference in Edinburgh) I went back out on my bike again this morning just before 06:00.

I’ve done something to my right shoulder. Probably a combination of sleeping badly on it, and being jumped on by Reuben; I’ve started calling Reuben ‘Cato‘ because he attacks me at the most inconvenient moments!

It was good to get out again. Here’s to a slowly developing discipline of early morning cycles and to getting fit again.

Afternoon

When Jane and the boys returned from church at lunchtime (I’d been to All Saints, St Andrews for the 08:00, then retired to bed) Joshua was still asleep in the car, Reuben was asleep in the living room, and Isaac asleep in his pram in the front garden.

Joshua woke first so I brought him through into the study… where he promptly fell asleep again using his cuddly dog (Copper from Disney’s The Fox and the Hound) as a pillow.

He looked so lovely and peaceful.

Wimbledon is like the Tour

This is inspired by a Tweet from @jennybee that read:

Feel a bit lost with no tennis to watch at lunch time.

So Wimbledon is over for another year. But there are other major sporting events going on just now, such as the Tour de France.

In many ways Wimbledon is like the Tour. Except that instead of hitting a ball back and forth across a tennis court, they instead cycle around the court as quickly as they can. And instead of calling it a ‘court’ they call it France.

So with that brief introduction to the international sport of cycling over, head over to ITV4 for some Tour action.
