That in itself is nothing to really make a noise about, but we didn't take the most direct route. She didn't go to the Gym yesterday and so needed the exercise. I, on the other hand, never go to the gym and always need the exercise. I'm out of practice and it really showed. I thought I was going to die on two separate occasions. I didn't and I know it was actually very good for me, but it hurts at the time. So what would normally have been a gentle 2 miles of flat cycling was actually more like 10 miles up hill and down dale. It also served to remind me how badly I need to get a proper bike and not one made of bambooicite.
After 20 minutes of recovery time, I cooked up a spledid quorn based chilli, caught up with corrie (its the law) and finally got to finish watching "Battle: LA" which is a guilty pleasure of a movie. It's not clever, but it is big and dumb and enjoyable. If you want to know what its about, you just need to see the cover art on the DVD and that pretty much tells it all.
Great in a really bad way - 7/10.
This morning, I'm not sure if I can feel my legs. So rather than rest and recover, naturally I need to trapse around town in search of odds and sods for the American trip. Mrs G, daughter and I have decided on a ride on the bus (public transport is always entertaining) into Chelter's. I'm after updating the 'business casual' look and Mrs G is hopefully going to get an iPhone upgrade to a White 4. But we'll see. I'm not a huge fan of retail opportunities but for once I'm actually looking forward to it.
There's a take-out coffee with my name on it.
