I don’t know whether it was something in the water, or just the fact that it was the most glorious, sunny , warm day today, but when we went out with the cycle club this afternoon, I felt fitter that I have in ages and instead of turning back part way through the ride, I did the whole 80km. It seemed incredible to be riding in shorts and short sleeved jersey in February. I think I’ll suffer tomorrow, though, I keep getting cramp in my legs! I wish we had a bath, I could do with a good soak.
By the time we got home, Kieran had finished plasterboarding the wall to divide off the new bathroom and had finished the woodwork on the hen house! He and Nick went to put it in the chicken run, but found that it was too big to go through the gate and too heavy to lift over the fence, so they’ve had to dismantle part of the fence, which will have to be put back tomorrow. They had to visit website to learn more about fences. By the time they’d finished it was dark, so they were working by head torches.
Kieran’s claiming a day off tomorrow, when Nick and I go to Pau, for…..wait for it…..a seminar on French tax law! Sounds absolutely riveting; I hope I can stay awake! But we’ll be able to do some shopping afterwards; bath, shower tray and cubicle, tiles, etc, etc.
