Back in the Saddle

I consider this to be the first day of summer and before you jump on me to ask if I'm on holidays yet, the answer is NO! I still have four weeks of schooling to go. Believe me when I say it will be a LONG four weeks as the kids already feel that they are finished and it is nigh on impossible to reign them in.
Anyway, I digress! I figure I have 90 days of summer to live and I intend to do so. In my quest for health/fitness/weight loss, I dusted the cobwebs off my bike and headed for the open road.


I planned on doing 11k, as far as Ballivor bog and back. (well I didn't want to overdo it on my first outing. I might pull a hamstring or something!)



 However when I got there I was only getting into my stride and decided to keep going. I might have been a bit ambitious as I was flagging on the way back. I spied these two little dotes and contemplated getting a bareback ride home butI figured my knees would be trailing the ground..... and I'm only 5' Feck all "


I made it back home in one piece, tired and thirsty but delighted that I'd taken the first step...or should that be, pedal.
