The Three Hills Killer in September was Ace, travelled to the Island with Terry and stayed at my sisters place, before the event had a few beers and a look around Sandown, visited the Culver Café, need I say more it was a cool weekend. The event was quite good, there were a few killer hills to climb though :-). If all works out I will definitely be going back next year, it was good. Wolverhampton marathon I did on my own on No2, at the start of it I manged to keep up with the front runners for about 300m then realised the pace will kill me so had to slow down. Was good though, I enjoyed it, was good being cheered on by strangers around the course…. Looking back at the cycling this year I have been to so many places and seen so many things, I have had some laughs and good times; a little pain too, you know I do fall off quite regular. I think that’s enough about the cycling now, will be continued I'm sure.
Christmas this year was different with family staying here. My sister and her boys stayed over for a few days, we visited family and did the usual Christmas thing, eating too much and talking shite. Santa bought me new cycling gloves and trousers and a new Polar Buff, I like presents. Oh well that’s it for Christmas in the Midlands, next year we’ll be living in the South in our new home. Hopefully by then the house will be finished so I don’t spend Christmas painting. I think that’s it, new job, new house, new bike, cool.... 2006 has been great the weather has been brilliant and I have spent my time doing what I like with folks I like.
Dominik started secondary school and immediately pissed off his new year head, Ben moved up a year and had to get used to having his little brother running around school. Joshua finished nursery and moved into infants. They are all doing really well at school with grades and tests etc, hope it stays that way after the move. There is lots more it was a good a year and I had a good time but I'm stopping there. Hope 2007 is even betterer and things turn out ok.
Happy New Year, I'm off to the pub...
