A bike ride, meeting friends then helping hubby

β€’22 Replies

Hi all

I had a shorter ride today as I was meeting a couple of friends, we sat down and had a bench each, feels weird not being able to sit next to anyone.

I had lunch, went out in the garden and cut the grass then helped hubby mixing sand and cement.

I cycled just over 20 miles.

Have a lovely evening and stay safe and well.

Where do you get your energy from? If I'd been on a bike for any length of time I would spend the rest of the day resting!

The good thing is you can do it and it gives you great pleasure and satisfaction. Well done Alicia, you keep doing it forces long as you are able.

Well I have to say my hands aren't as strong as they used to be as I found the mixing a little hard and that's too many years of using a keyboard.πŸ˜‚

Oh most definitely, we have to do what we are able to do whilst we can, we don't know what's around the corner. I love my bike, as if you hadn't guessed πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰

Have a lovely evening.

Lovely pictures, your energy knows no bounds. A bike ride, meeting friends, mixing sand and cement and I bet you did all the chores before you left and had a great meal on the go when you got back. You are a marvel and inspiration to us all. xx

Thank you Bobby. I went on a bike ride before meeting my friends so I could do a few miles. Ah, hmm, didn't do the chores beforehand, we did the housework yesterday ha ha. We had an easy dinner tonight, poached eggs for hubby and cream of carrot and parsnip soup for me, homemade of course.

Thank you for your lovely words.

Carrot and parsnip soup sounds delicious, I love parsnips. xx

in reply to bobbybobb

It really is, it's a low fodmap one and has coconut milk in it. It's in my recipe book. When I'm next on the PC I'll type it up and send it to you.

You are welcome xx

A lovely day for a ride Alicia and your pictures reflect what a beautiful day it was. No rain to dodge this time 😊

Thank you Callendersgal, no rain to dodge at all and it didn't even look like it was going to rain, so good to have lovely weather.

Hope you've had a good day.

Lovely photos. Mixing cement! Is it for a patio? I thought I was the only woman in the world that had mixed sand and cement last year! 😁

in reply to Agoodenough

Thank you Ali. No Jeff is making a stand to sit our bins on. We've been widening the drive at the front but had to stop as we couldn't get the sand or cold tar but I managed to get some on Saturday, just waiting for settled weather now.

Aren't us women good at mixing sand and cement.πŸ˜‰

Yes! What would our men do without us!

in reply to Agoodenough

Oh most definitely πŸ˜‰

Thank you Jerry, we were a bit precious, a bench eachπŸ˜‰. It was good to meet them.

It's hubby that's good with the building stuff, I just follow his directions ha haπŸ˜‚

Enjoy the rest of the evening.

Thank you Lynne.

It was good to meet friends albeit strange sat so far from each other but we could still hear each other.

We are having quite a few heavy showers today.

Hope you've had a good day so far.

Take care

Same here Lynne - our fish pond completely flooded over and took over the garden and the fish went for walkabout lol lol. Lovely lil site this one x

I helped my late wife - she was a ballet, tap and gymnastics teacher - and I found myself teaching gymnastics... I tell people I was a Child Catcher!

in reply to S11m

That's a very good profession, I love to watch dancing and gymnastics,I do love exercise though ie. power walking and bike.

My Mum taught ballet, she loved it!! Got some lovely photos if her doing ballet. I did go to ballet but then the place shut down and there weren't as many dance schools then. I went to ballroom and the lady retired!! I got a bronze in that!! No more ballroom classes anywhere!! My niece now teaches ballet. All 3 of my nieces went as little girls but Ellie carried it on!! I'm so pleased she has carried it on, following in my Mum's footsteps. I am also thrilled that she has carried it on!! My Mum was lovely as was my Dad. My Mum never made me feel bad that I was more into football.

I still enjoy watching ballet and ballroom but my first love is football, I wanted to go because my brother went and then at the age of 6 my Dad let me join my brother and I went watching football!!! I loved it!! We went to watch Oldham as there was hardly any trouble there,(not enough fans to cause trouble) . My Dad liked Man Utd but Oldham was his first team!! We left my Mum in peace every other Saturday afternoon, I think she quietly enjoyed it, she was able to do her own thing for a few hours! I used to follow my Mum around the house, no wonder she enjoyed those Saturday afternoons!!! Sorry, I went off on a tangent again!!! Thank you for reading this. Lots and lots of love and hugs Lynne β€οΈπŸŒˆπŸ€—πŸ’œ xxxx

I went to ballet classes when I was a child but was never any good at it. Well done on the ballroom, I do love ballroom dancing and love Strictly Come Dancing. How lovely that your nieces went to ballet and one now teaches it, that's an accolade to your mum. Nothing wrong with girls liking football at all.

Personally I do not like football, I'd much rather watching dancing. That was good that your dad allowed you to go and watch football as years ago girls and boys sports were just that and didn't cross but now if a girl plays football it's perfectly normal.

Take care Lynne xxxx
