Spent the first half of the day doing more work to this website. Hope you all like it say far.  I also went out a nice cycle, well mainly nice. Since about half way into it, it started to rain so I go a wee bit wet :(.  I did 19.07 miles, with a average speed of 13.1 mph, maximum speed was 28.8 mph and it took me 1:27.37 (h:m:s).

Working on a new look website…

Working on what may be the biggest update this website has ever had since going live in 1998… Please let me know what you think so far… 🙂

The title right now is only a temporally one, till I make a new look.  Plus I will start adding all the pages from the old website, once I happy with the look of the new website.

I did the long boring drive back Killearn to back to my village of Little Bytham a journey of around 320 miles. Think I did it in record time! Will not say how I did that! 🙂 I also went a new way, for a section of the journey. I used what years ago was the A74, which is now called the B7076, mainly used it, since I am so bored on the A74(M), also did it, since I used that road while doing the End to End cycle back in August 2009. So it was nice to get to see it again!

Once back in I had all the fun of unpacking everything. Then I had fun setting up my Sony BDP S370 Blu-ray Player which I got from my Mum and Dad has a Christmas present. The video quality is so good, reminds me of when I first went from VHS to DVD. Also great to get to watch HD stuff on my HD ready TV in my bed room at long last. So looking forward to watching one of my Blu-ray films in the next day or so. I already have a good list to pick from The Dark Knight, Sherlock, Top Gear: Polar Special, Newcastle – Australia and Torchwood – Children of Earth.

Got my bike back at long, last! The service/rebuild come to a total of £277.69. A lot more than I was planning, but at least I have him back now. So that’s the main thing. Can’t wait till tomorrow to take him, out for a spin. Was hoping go out a spin today, which it’s been so cold, not gone above -6C all day. So really hope that Terry Wright Cycles have done a good done in fixing him. Now only got 17.9 miles till I hit the 4,000 mile mark. Only got two miles till I go to Scotland. Would be well pissed off, if I missed 4,000 by just 17.9 miles.
