Medina salmon

Day 136 - photo a day 2017

Tue 16 May 2017

This evening Elysia and I went to Medina, I had salmon. She had galette and we had hummus to share. The salmon was great and the garnish that came with it was really nice too. The segments of orange worked well with the honey glaze on the fish. Not got …

Morriston Hospital

Day 135 - photo a day 2017

Mon 15 May 2017

We went down to Swansea today to go to Morriston Hospital for my yearly appointment with my neurologist. Parking was, as usual, awful. There were cars everywhere, luckily we managed to pull into a not a space really quickly. We arrived a bit early as I wanted to leave a …

Sun 14 May 2017

Today I drove to Oswestry to go view a van/some cars at a local dealer and to also fix my sister's computer. Unfortunately nothing really took my fancy although it has helped to kind of form an idea of what I'd like. Anyway, here's a photo of a big …

Chilli, garlic and tomato mussels

Sat 13 May 2017

I did a rideout on the mega today, possibly the last I'm going to do on it. The ride started out well, I felt good. By midway up the leg burner my legs were starting to go into limp mode a bit and were starting to hurt. By the visitor …

Rear of Bronglais Hospital

Fri 12 May 2017

A visit to Bronglais. Just a routine appointment with the MS nurse, nothing exciting! The hospital is a bit less attractive from this side. I only had to wait 5-10 minutes before being seen (and I was 5 mins early anyway) which was great. We quickly realised that actually the …

Thu 11 May 2017

Nothing exciting yet again. Had hoped to get my bike back as Specialized say they've fixed it, maybe tomorrow. I think over the last 5 weeks it's been in my possession for 3 or 4 days. We've also had glorious weather the last couple of weeks and now it appears …

Gamebuildr meeting night has moved to Wednesdays. However, that's also pub quiz night in Brynamlwg so we've moved to the Arts Centre. Somehow, the is even more expensive!

Not much to say! On Monday I planted some chillies in my propagator in the hope that I get some seedlings. Fingers crossed!

Carder full of wool

Mon 08 May 2017

Elysia's new hand carders turned up yesterday so this evening I helped her card some raw wool. Carders are used to get the wool ready for spinning, they get all of the strands straight and unmatted etc... They're basically 2 bits of wood with teeth on that you load up …

Sun 07 May 2017

I had so much fun yesterday that I went back to the same trails today, although I didn't do part of the loop. I did one descent a couple of times and I had a good explore. It was rad. On my way back I also pushed up something that …

Sat 06 May 2017

I actually had quite a busy day today. I woke up quite late at 9:15 having got around 10 hours of sleep! I cleaned up and photo'd some bike bits that I want to sell. Just as I finished doing that Elysia rang me and asked if I wanted …

Fri 05 May 2017

Woohoo my mojo to ride has returned! I decided to drive up to the nant visitor centre and have a bit of a play on the skills area. I still have no skills so I decided to do a loop of the pendam trail. The weather was beautiful also a …

Coriander seedlings

Thu 04 May 2017

A very uninspiring day... The weather has been lovely and each day I leave work planning on going for a nice ride. On my ride home my legs always feel heavy and rubbish which really just kills my desire to ride so I don't. Anyway, my coriander has sprouted! If …

Wed 03 May 2017

Another standard day. This evening I cleared out what used to be my office but has become a bit of a storage room. I mostly just moved stuff that belongs outside into the garage and then tidied up to leave some space and make the room a room again. My …

Unknown flowers

Day 122 - photo a day 2017

Tue 02 May 2017

I didn't do anything exciting today! I did a bit of gamebuildr, I mowed the lawn and I pottered around the garden a bit. These flowers grow in my garden every year and they're quite resilient - even after being mowed they grow back pretty quickly. I did once find out …
