We’ve had a bunch of extended family hanging around the last week or so, in response to the Christmas Situation; i.e. that Christmas happens at all and the Mother-In-Law is not in the best of health, so it’s a good time for everyone to invade and enjoy each other’s company.
It’s been good, and I’ve spend a considerably number of days, scheduled into various activities from eating too much, drinking considerably, climbing trees where they offered both a “long black” and a “short black” run and where not a coffee was spotted at all! Most disappointed. Followed by more eating, more drinking and finally, after three months (make it nearly four months) hooking the bike thingy up to Grumpy’s bike so that Chippie’s bike could become sort of like a trailer.
I had grand plans for cycling the Bellarine Rail Trail, but Grumpy (sensibly) suggested we get him used to it first, so he had a tantrum about it, and we popped him on anyway and rode to the local park,
