Foot drop - An MS update

Thu 07 December 2017

Foot drop. It's not some funky 30s dance, it's a "muscular weakness or paralysis that makes it difficult to lift the front part of your foot and toes". I sat down at my PC on Friday evening and when I got up to go to bed I kicked the floor …

Moving to Instagram

Thu 24 August 2017

Writing a bit about every photo that I take is becoming a bit of a drag and is only going to get worse as we head into Winter. Sooo, I've moved over to using Instagram. At some point I'll pull all of the photos together and make a gallery.

Wed 23 August 2017

Nant TT night. I started from the top of Zorro again, however I didn't make it to the bottom. My chain started skipping and then fell off so about half way down I decided to pull over and put it back on. At that point I noticed that the chainring …

We went out for food at Scholars this evening. It was OK but not great. I forgot to photo Dan again. Luckily I took a photo at lunch. This is the view from the front of the library where we had a coffee.

Went back to the dentist today to get my tooth refilled. Feels a bit weird already so this could be fun again... I tried to go for a ride on the Levo but the motor/battery just wouldn't work at all so I'm going to have to book it in …

Sun 20 August 2017

Went out up Myherin today for a ride. Levo was being a bit iffy at first but seemed to start working OK after a while. I rode the pretty techy, rooty bit a couple of times and at the split for Blaen or heading back it started to rain so …

Didn't do much today, chillied out, a bit of game dev, enjoyed no tooth ache. Elysia bought me some Carolina Reaper chillies though, should be interesting...

Fri 18 August 2017

I completed my servicing this morning. I rebled the brakes and fiddled with the forks, both now feel great. Whilst I was at it I also replaced the dropper cable and the gear cable. In other news over the past few days my toothache has been getting increasingly worse. Last …

Bike servicing

Thu 17 August 2017

Bike service time again! I did the seatpost, brakes, fork uppers and fork lowers. I also regreased a few bits. The forks now don't compress properly and the brakes feel terrible so I'll be redoing those tomorrow! I couldn't do the shock due to running out of fox float fluid …

Wed 16 August 2017

Nant TT day again on the Mega again. After a brief haitus last week, to do a bigger ride, I got back to it this evening. I decided to park at the top of Zorro this time, as it's a quicker and easier drive. It's also been raining a fair …

Tue 15 August 2017

I went out for a ride after work, managed not to fall off this time but I wasn't riding particularly well. Seem to be having a tough time trying to make things flow at the moment. Bike seemed to behave well though which is good.

Mon 14 August 2017

Another day off today and I had planeed to ride but I'm pretty knackered from the weekend. Getting old! I've mostly just chilled out but I've also built my server (I bought the machine from Ed's work and he gave it to me over the weekend). It's running nicely now …

Sun 13 August 2017

This morning we went for a walk along the coastpath, starting near St. Ishmaels. There are some big oil refineries around here! The was about the right length for me, my legs/balance were beginning to go by the end. After that we drove over to Dale to have a …

Sat 12 August 2017

Today we went to the beach - at Marloes. It was a really nice day and I even went for a dip in the sea, which ended a bit weirdly. I was having fun but started to get cold so I got out and then I couldn't stop shaking. I also …
