Well my daughter who is living in NZ tested me today to tell me that dad is now home from the hospital and she says he looks good. So I quickly called him on the phone and he sounded as cheery as ever. The first words out of my mouth were "its about time you were home, anyone would like you liked it there" and his response was, "well the nurses just wouldnt leave me alone and they couldn keep their hands off me"!! lol he is so funny. I think at some point I will get my daughter to read this blog to him. I think it will touch him very much - but also I know his response will be "who the heck are you talking about - you must be talking about someone else" he is a very humble man. Another of his admirable qualities.
I will keep you posted on his progress, and by the way, he is rearing to get back out on his bike and ride around the private airstrip! haha of course without mum knowing about it until AFTER he has gone riding.
Well yesterday was a wonderful day for riding. My riding buddy Darlene - Princess Scooterpie, decided to meet up after work and ride around the outskirts and coastline from the University to down town Ogden point. What a beautiful ride. We are as she says, ying and yang or peanut butter and jelly or marmite and toast! haha had to throw in a kiwism with the marmite haha.
Here is my riding buddy Princess Sccoterpie on her wonderful Miss Scarlet - isnt Dar beautiful and look perfect sitting on Scarlet and I loved the way her reflective strips were just glowing in the sunlight. Yes I had to steal these pictures from her blog - oops! And the next one again from Dar's blog.....ME!! right beside her on my Little Rascal. That is what I settled on calling my bike. She is like a little rascal always getting up to mischief with me in tow. Very suiting name for her. And she is very adorable.
haha oh I just realized, I was smiling nicely for the camera when Dar was taking the picture - you cant see much with the helmet on!
Boy - helmets give us big heads dont they? And all those layers we wear!! Ok who am I kidding, more exercise and keeping on with the diet. But weigh in is tomorrow, I know I has lost some weight this week so I will let you know my progress next time I blogg.
So any suggestions for clip on sunglasses? While I was riding yesterday, my visor was up and the wind actually flicked my sunglasses off! Luckily they were magnetic and they still held on enough for me to grab them. I guess keeping the visor down is the solution, but in the summer I am going to want to ride with the visor up. Another thing I have been thinking about - inventing something to make putting glasses on after your helmet is on, easier and less destructive to your glasses frames.
Well it is now after midnight and I have to be up early for work, so best leave this for now and continue on tomorrow. Goodnight my friends.
