Where I live down the back lanes runs some old rail tracks where the coal is moved up and down, I usually see it every now and again on my early morning ride.

Wet Day

Well I've done a cheeky bike ride and got soaked in the process. I believe another full moon is on the cards. I'll be honest its quite nice doing a bike ride early morning with a full moon you should try it readers.

I think Guy Ritchie's divorce has helped his film making skills Sherlock Holmes with Jude Law and Robert Downey Junior I quite enjoyed. The bare knuckle fighting adds a fresh dimension to the holmes adventures. I've not done any miles on the bike today I feel a bit guilty.

Me At 60

I think readers I shall dress like this from the age of 60 and ride a bike with a basket on it down country lanes. Maybe I've watched too many episodes of Lovejoy and been inspired by Tinker. Reet kettle on.

You cannot beat some lego for a bit of fun, I've got loads. Looks like another stay indoors type of day and have the kettle on lots.

On the Fifth Day Of Christmas

Well readers looking for criminals at 3.30am in the rain wearing just your underpants is not a good look which actually happened to me. Dam those pesky robbers. Nor is being ditched by your girlfriend for a playstation 3 obsession which has actually happened to tennis superstar Andy Murray. Well Kim Sears there is no PS3 obsession at this end just a brew addiction.
