As I have decided that a trip to Wales is a non starter due to the weather I wandered into Rubery with my daughter to get all the stuff I needed to do my Christmas Ham. Recipe here.
It’s a tradition that I do every year and I recommend you have a go if you have a culinary bent.
It’s snowing here again and we’re now resigned to having these conditions all the way into the New Year.
As for pedalling? Unlikely mainly due to my Flu/Chest infection still not being completely better. I’m still coughing my guts up and still really achey. But I would be giving it a go if it weren’t for the conditions.
I did see one hardy soul having a go in Rubery, but he was sliding all over the place. It didn’t look particularly safe especially in amongst the car drivers who clearly didn’t know how to drive in ice and snow. I would have walked, which was what me and Fay did.
I’ve decided that I’m not going to weigh myself again until I’ve completed a weeks commuting back at work. This is kidding myself big style, but it works for my mindset especially given the rough 3 weeks I’ve had with the flu thing. I haven’t been pigging out but I haven’t been super careful either.
I think that getting properly well, enjoying Christmas with the family then targeting the New Year with avengence is now my plan.
A bit of a damp squib to end the year considering my progress to date, but as with most performance graphs they’re very rarely linear as we all know.
