treats in Turin

Some of it was planned, some spontaneous and some surprising. There were so many hours of excellence I couldn’t believe it was one weekend. Ocean swimming, delicious food, fun with friends, favourite band in concert, ridiculous partying, amazing scenery, trying new things, heaps of coffee. And along the way Nad wondered whether we should do white water rafting and a hot air balloon ride too. Living for the moment anyone???

SOSA (51/200): absorbing

Thoughts, reflections, food, frogs.

One week of living in paradise and learning about nirvana.

All while sitting in lotus position. Ok, half lotus position. Ok, mostly sprawled out.

green birds in Richmond Park

Not a pun about the bike riding kit the other girls are wearing but, in fact, proper green birds flying around in Richmond Park. I’ve mentioned them before but this time they sat still long enough. Sorry the picture’s not better, I still panicked a bit. Are they cockatoos d’you reckon?

deer crossing the road in Richmond Park

Saw these very orderly young looking deer when I was bike riding. They’re so pretty with their light coloured fur. Sadly as I’d come into the Park I saw a sign explaining there would be ‘deer culling’ over the coming months. Makes me sad but presume somewhere someone knows what they’re doing…

Michelle just got back from 12 days touring beautiful New Zealand with her Mum and the blog, “travelswiththemothership” is a brilliant diary of their time together. Brought back a lot of memories of roadtripping with my own Mum last year.
travelswiththemothership has some mouth-watering food refs, highly amusing anecdotes (nice one on the hire car..) and some beautiful photos. Have a read

frosty morning bike ride

Hovering between 1 and 2 degrees this morning and a thick frost sitting on EVerything so oh-wise-one here went for a bike ride…
Well, I’d just got my little mitts on a road bike (thank you, thank you, thank you) and I’d just got my mitts back on it post-service so I was keen to give it a spin. Ah, I thought, how cold can it be… I won’t bang on; talking about the weather is dull. I’ll just say it was freezing, and that when I stopped …

running around the Merstham Lakes

I’ve stretched my legs a few times around the Merstham Lakes now. Each time I’ve found new parts to explore and there are still more intriguing footpaths and options that I haven’t taken. I’m really pleased that this area has been paid attention – the conservation and the accessibility – because it’s really pretty and valued a lot by the locals.
