For the last few years I’ve participated in the Tour de Fleece, spinning along with the Tour de France while running my own Tour de France KAL. This year I had to abandon the race before I started.
My back has been giving me problems for the last month or so, but in the last couple of weeks it’s gone to a whole new level of pain. I’ve sought a whole bunch of assistance and I’m currently working with a great physiotherapist to help get me back to normal. All of this means that my wheel has gone quiet and that my lovely monthly parcels from Southern Cross Fibre have been piling up on the table beside it.
Meanwhile my children have come up with some lovely statements and observations I’ve been holding onto for my next weekend spinning post. Since that doesn’t seem likely to happen for a bit, here’s my favourite recent quote from my son. He turns 8 this week:
“When I get married I’ll do sex. ‘Cause marrying is sex.”
