This weekend came and went but not without revelation – I can relax. And what’s more the feeling is great. Despite a somewhat hectic Sunday catch up on the allotment (which will, I hope, soon take on the look of a pottager’s garden with all the plants now in) Mrs AB and I headed over to the Wyre Forest for our friend Liz’s belated 40th birthday party. We stayed at the farm pictured in a spot which couldn’t be further from civilisation whilst being so near. It was idyllic. There’s not much more I can or need to say – the weather was fantastic, the company was fun and the food comforting (who can deny that fish and chips one night folloed by a barbeque the next is comforting and fun?). All in all I got to the end of Monday and had a feeling I hadn’t felt for some time of sheer relaxation and a real desire to skive from work for another day. Unfortunately Mrs AB needed to be back more than I and so we headed on the short trip home. So I can do it, I just need to do it some more.
And for the cycling followers – cycling to restart this weekend. I’m looking forward to it again.
