Worn out

I wonder how many of my blog entries are synonyms for "tired". It never seems to end! Anna has been unwell since last week, Kitty and Rory were unwell before that and Kitty was unwell again this weekend. I never seem to have enough time or energy to get everything done.

On the plus side, my hamstrings eventually healed up enough for me to go on a bike ride. I've managed three rides since and they're still a little sore but mostly better. The weather is getting nicer but the wind is still blowing away, it's quite depressing having to cycle home into a 15-20mph headwind when you're unfit!

We've got our holiday to the Isle of Wight booked again for the summer, and we're probably heading up to Clacton soon to make sure the caravan is OK and ready to go for Glastonbury. It'll be nice to have a holiday, even if it is only Clacton, I could do with a break.

I've finally managed to set up the Raspberry Pi to allow me and Nicky to play with circuits. So…


It seems like spring is finally on the way, and Nicky has been asking to buy a football so we got one today and went for a kickabout down the park. After only five minutes I managed to pull my hamstring. Now I remember why I don't play football any more! It's particularly frustrating because I've been feeling fairly positive about my fitness recently. This week I cycled over 100km for the first time since May 2015 and had been looking forward to getting fit again. I had even been thinking about doing a super sprint triathlon this summer! Hopefully it'll heal quickly and I can cycle again in a few days. Other than that, things are going fairly well. I could always do with more sleep but the kids will leave home in a decade or so(!) I've been looking longingly at the Nintendo Switch and especially the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The reviews for it look awesome and I could actually afford to get one, but as I only recently got a PS3 and have a backlog of game…
