Project 365 week 31

Sunday

The darker nights are here, the lamp half way up the stairs is now back on in an evening and over night, Our bathroom is downsatirs and easier with a light on.





Monday

Got our car back late this afternoon, fingers crossed it is good.

One of the things my children grew up knowing how to do was mend a puncture on a bike, they all had bikes from young as well as me having one with the bike seat on the back for youngest son when he was little. Did make him lazy right enough as he hated to walk anywhere as a child.
Any way being the nice Grandma that I am I taught Bob how to mend a puncture today.





Tuesday

Went and joined in with an organised bike ride with Active Travel hub in Ayr. Did 6.3 miles and my plan had been a photograph of the group once we had finished. Sadly once the ride was over one of the ladies got tangled in her bike when getting off and we ended up phoning and ambulance and she got taken into hospital. I hope she is all right. So instead you have a photo of the route we cycled from map my walk,

Wednesday

Went for a geocaching walk up at Whitleees Wind Farm. Managed a circuit of 4.3 miles without it raining. We have a travel bug for Dixie so going to log up some caches for her. Went for something to eat and then was going for another walk but by then it was raining rather heavily. So supermarket and home instead.




Thursday

A day of sorting paperwork, sorting car insurance and breakdown cover for the new year of them next week and various other long over due bits sorted and cleared. Also trying to  decide who to sign back up with for home broadband and tv as well as new mobiles, yes they ALL run out in the next ten days. None of it comes cheap but needs to be done.








Friday

Hubby had had dog out for a walk in the afternoon while I was away doing other things. Went to pick up a spare wheel and tyre for the car as it came with a can of squirty foam stuff. Went for a walk round Rozelle and managed to find the carved Gruffalo that somebody had asked me about the other week. This is cheating a bit as it is a carving put inside the tree rather than being part of the tree,






Saturday

Yeeehhhhh a competition prize.....not the biggest value or the most exciting but a prize none the less.

  1. It's great that you've taught Bob how to mend a puncture. Hope the lady in your cycling group was OK, that must have been a bit of a shock for you all. Love the photo with all the wind turbines in the background. I think they make for such interesting photos.

  2. When I was a kid during the summer holidays my brother and I were always mending the puntures on our bike tyres. My mother used to go crazy because we would always take her spoons and bend them. lol
    That does look a lot of paperwork to sort through...
    Ahh! A win is a win no matter what the value is. x

    1. we still have some of our bent spoons 30 years later. My ex use to go crazy at us as well, but once they were bent they were no use again so you needed frewash ones.

  3. I hope the cycling lady is better soon. I learnt to mend punctures with my Dad when I was younger. Well done on the win.

  4. The dark evenings start earlier again, I've also noticed it the other day. Needed to get something in the garden at 9pm, and it was already dusky. Well done on the long bike ride, hope the lady who needed an ambulance is OK. The Gruffalo looks a bit unfinished.

  8. Glad you got the car park. Hope it is still doing ok. Must admit I still don't know how to fix a puncture! Hate it when all the bills come together!

    Well done on the win!

  9. Boo paperwork! It always seems to arrive at once or else comes one after the other so just when you feel proud of yourself for sorting it there is something else to do #project365
