Christmas almost here, but….


December 21, 2008 by welshcyclist

I’m nights now up to and including Christmas eve, so not really getting into the Christmas spirit. The good news is, however, is that, for the last 3 days, I’ve commuted to and from work on the Subway 1, my shoulder has been a bit stiff, but otherwise the trips have gone well and were very enjoyable. No chance of any pictures though, it’s pitch black when I leave in the mornings, and the same when I get home.

Last week, sorry 3 weeks ago, on the 1st December, I had to go to Bristol for a medical, part of the rules if you’re a signaller, like me. I was given a clean bill of health thankfully, then the very next day, I had my fall on the way to work, and was off for a full week. Strange how things work out.

But now the cycling seems to be going very well again, as I’ve felt very strong on my commutes, though today I’ll be taking the car, as I’m feeling rather stiff, all over in fact, everywhere else is coming out in sympathy with the old shoulder and knee. Anyway I need to be home early tomorrow, as Elizabeth needs me to take her shopping, for all the last odds and ends, needed for Christmas, in the Curtis household. I’m hoping a day’s shopping with Elizabeth will get me in the mood for Christmas, because it doesn’t feel at all Christmasy to me yet.

    Thanks Nick and 2whls3spds, shoulder and knee still a bit stiff, but the weather’s got warmer, no ice about, and enjoying being back in the saddle. You both have a great Christmas, cheers
