It all started with a great 90 kilometre ride with my regular crowd and included a fast climb of Helshoogte which was a lot of fun! I'm really enjoying my riding again and it feels good to have lost 8kgs and be strong on the hills again. Hopefully I'll be on top form for the Cape Argus on the 11th of March. I'm really looking forward to it now.
This afternoon I was delighted to be able to watch the Palace game live on local TV and it turned out to be a very good game in which we made the Hammers look distinctly average. I guess it wasn't quite a perfect day though as we only managed a draw.
This evening we had a lot of fun on the beach, starting with a fish and chip supper followed by much mucking around in the sea. The boys were in paradise and have come home so wiped out they've just flopped into bed and gone to sleep.
So now we're looking forward to spending time with our family at Tree Of Life church tomorrow as we know a perfect day will be stretched into a perfect weekend. Bring it on!
