Hi Guys

Sorry about not blogging for like a month, but since recently not much has really happened in my life. Well there are a couple of events that I would like to chat about, other than the usual going to work, body pump and the occasional cycle ride.

August Bank Holiday – White Horse Show
The show went ahead even with torrential rain on the Saturday making the fields rather soggy, but we still had a really good turn out of vistors – not many cars getting stuck in the mud either bonus! – I suppose having the Red Arrows doing one of their amazing displays on the Monday helped. The biggest scare that happened was on Saturday when a bolt of lightning struck Fawler Manor (a listed 16th century house); the top part of the manor was destroyed – they are now starting to rebuild it. It took 9 fire engines to put the fire out and with no fire hydrant they had to take the water out of the ditches! No-one was hurt in this incident, though a couple of people were shaken up a little – the residents at the time were on holiday – what a way to end your holiday.
On Monday I was helping out on the Church stall (selling cakes, jams, chutneys etc) and also doing car park duty – it was a bit cold doing that, but it all went pretty smoothly. I also got to hold the Olympic Torch – that was cool!

Right we are now half way through September – where has the time gone – and so far I’ve had my birthday, which was a quiet affair; tidied my bedroom, what an epic challenge that was, still haven’t completely finished but it looks a lot better now; went to Guilford on Sunday for Stage 8 of the Tour of Britain, I went with two of my mates and we were situated in the team parking area – we had fun…

I also had my finger nails painted by Ellie – they’re so cool!
    

I’m still looking for a road bike – basically just waiting for a small enough bike to come in to actually try out and get fitted too – I’ve brought a pair of padded cycle shorts which are really comfy and a new pair of cycle gloves (as my old pair have got holes in them).

I haven’t got a free weekend now til November – I’m going all over the country: Wallingford; Essex; Pembrey; London; Birmingham doing very different things in each place.

Not long before my last race of the season at Pembrey on October 14th. I’m hoping this will be my day when things go right and I have a great day 🙂

Right I think that’s brought you guys up to date, I hope to be able to do better at writing on my blog in the next few weeks 🙂

Take Care & God Bless
