I can’t believe that the Glasgow 2014, Commonwealth Games was 4 years ago! So here is a look back to 2014, when at my place of work we had a theme evening for the start of the games!

Good luck to our Home Nations teams that are taking part in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games! Question, is who do I support Scotland or England?

More photos from this set can be seen at www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/days-out/23-07-2014/

I did end up wearing a wetsuit to work (Peterborough Greyhound Stadium) tonight for Children in Need! Here are some photos, to show it really did happen!

The Raceview Restaurant at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium has really changed a lot in the last year…

Was that really a year ago, when we removed the wall for getting ready to remove the tables of four, along the top row at work?

You can tell it’s been a slow week, when I start getting excited that we now sell Strongbow Cloudy Apple Cider and Caledonian Coast to Coast Pale Ale at Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, my place of work!

And of the course the funny thing, is that I don’t even drink. A bar supervisor that does not drink, can’t be many of them about!


Oh and want to see more fun photos that I’ve taken at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium over the years? Then check out https://www.flickr.com/photos/gsvalentine/albums/72157635332200345

Since I cycled to work, I of course had to cycle back home again… last year, I always left my bike at work, then got a lift back the next day. So always cycled home in daylight! So it’s the first, time I’ve cycled back from work at night, in 2 years! Lucky since, I last did it! I’ve got a much better front light again!

That’s me just done the first cycle to work of 2017! Normally don’t even think about doing it, till May or June time! But my car got a flat tire on the way to work on Friday. So using the spire tire right now, which means. I can only go a MAX speed of 50 mph. Try driving down the A1 at that speed and see how many BEEP at you!

Hoping to get it fixed Monday or Tuesday this week! But at least, it give me a good reason to cycle to work! The first of many times this year, I am sure!
