Changing things

Sometimes it's really easy to get bogged down in things, to forget about doing the things you love doing and to get stuck in routine.

Well recently I've been a little like that and I thought it's about time it changed. So last night Ad wasn't riding so I went and rode with Luke, and I had a brilliant time, great people, great fun and horrible weather! Horrible, horrible weather, the worst I've ridden in for a while, but it didn't matter, it was fun, really fun. I saw friends, I saw people I deliver to in the week and I had a great time. I also gave out a lot of mistletoe and spread lots of Christmas cheer.

This morning I continued the power of change and put aside cleaning the house, cleaning the garage, feeling hungover, doing the last bit of work, visiting other people, having Sunday lunch in the same place, sorting out kit and I went Mountain Biking. And it was great, it rained, it was windy, there was nothing in my legs from a weeks worth of riding, I hadn't had breakfast, the hills seemed twice as high and twice as long and the downhills shot by, but it was great. So here's to changing things....
There are worse placesIt's good to slow down sometimes

Tone says that the most recent Blog prompts the following: Taken from "Leisure" a poem by William Henry Davies:

What is this life, if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep and cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Slow down.....
If you slowed down any more last Sunday you'd have been riding the course backwards

There's only two people 'g-unit' can be. I've a feeling it't the one who spent a lot of time on the floor and is now nursing his wounds.... oh
