Kitchen,Colds,Cycling & More

Hello folks quick update I cycled to the Humber Bridge the middle of January then won myself a stinking cold which developed into a chest infection. I had the antibiotics that put me on a better track but still the cold persisted. I seemed to project manage a new kitchen at my mums home for a few weeks in Feb. I've drawn a few images managed to get back on my bike last week; but oh how I suffered, my fitness has seeped away.

Happy New Year

Well I must be getting old because for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and indeed New Years Eve I was in bed for 8 and 9pm. Although I did a splendid bike ride on Boxing Day with the lads enjoying a hearty breakfast along the way with a smashing brew on a fresh morning. Here's hoping for some fun projects to come my way in 2015
