Stop and stare.

Will try and do a proper post this week. It'll mainly be talking about how dull my life is at the moment. Work, work, work, and training, training, training. I might put the occasional picture of baking in too. I made a bloody good carrot cake last weekend. And I've booked a holiday too. EXCITING!!!!

Happy New Year!

Well, Christmas has been and gone already, and everything is quickly going back to normal :( sad times. I love Christmas. Had a reasonably quiet Christmas as usual, although there were 6 of us this year so that made a bit of a change from the usual 4! Swapped the turkey for a joint of beef this year. Gobble gobble.Also decorating the Christmas cake on Christmas Eve kept me busy for a good couple of hours (easily pleased I know).

cakey presents

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

Went for a long ride on boxing day, managed a 45miler which I was fairly happy with. No classes have been running at the gym over the Christmas period and I feel a little bit lost without my normal routine…. Uhoh obsessed much? They all start again this week so it’s fine (breathes a huge sigh of relief).

Cycled from home to my friend Steff’s house yesterday, to spend New Year’s Eve with her and her friend Sam. They’re both vets, and were both unlucky enough to be working on-call shifts last night, so I said I’d keep them company on the condition that I could play vet and go along to any call-outs :) We celebrated midnight in the vet’s practice, with Steff treating a sicky little ginger kitten. Bless. Drove back past some amazing Christmas lights…. Who needs streetlights?!

Went to cycle home this morning and promptly discovered that my chain had snapped after yesterdays hilly, muddy effort, so unfortunately had to call in the cavalry (in the shape of my papa) to come and rescue me. Me thinks I need to learn how to mend chains whilst I’m out and about….. never had to do it before!!!!

Start as you mean to go on?
 Am looking forward to 2012 for all sorts of reasons……. It’s going to be a year of big change (and hopefully big achievements) for me!
