Today was more cyclocross helping, near the beach at Irvine. Very cold but good and fast racing. Luckily not too far from home as the car exhaust detached itself at the front just 7 miles from home...lucky too as it was after the fast bits of the journey, as we were going slow,just before a layby.. not too far to drive sounding like a tractor!
Just when we thought we had a little cushion of money for entering events in NZ and doing some travelling there....

A long day, 160 miles travelling, but good to see and help friends
I'm near the bottom of the list but not last!! (despite being the oldest) .
The best time I'd done all year in competition...and one more race next weekend.
Still lacking a bit in enthusiasm and get up and go, but not doing too bad.

and last night we were celebrating the birth of the Carpenter and his Lady's daughter...a woodchip off the block?!
Today we are putting up a curtain pole for the curtain to keep the front door's cold air out of the house. Then window film secondary "glazing" as we get the plastic frames dry enough for the tape to stick.
The joys of a rental....but at least we have it cheap on the premise that we do the DiY and keep the front lawn tidy.

Dogwalking, gardening, foraging, relaxing with friends.
A little racing on the velodrome at Newport as we were near.
Collecting furniture and pottery things that have been in store for a year.
Visiting family...the Carpenter and family with an addition due in just over a week..and the Pirate's daughter and family in Bristol, before heading off on the long road home. Nearly 1000 miles done!
