As a proud Englishman I always recognise our Patron Saint’s Day. That of St George. It isn’t trendy for an Englishman to be patriotic. That is usually left to my Celtic Cousins, the French or my American friends. Why this should be I am not certain. But type St George’s flag into Google and the second suggestion you get is “St George’s Flag Racist.” That saddens me.
Whatever your view, Happy St George’s Day!
Today I’m off to Decathlon to get a couple of cycling jerseys for the Summer and a couple of other bits’n’pieces too. Thanks to Unfitguy and Matty lad for the heads up via Twitter on this place. Very cheap!
Later the MTB commuter will be getting some TLC after a pedal around the block with Dan who is now going great guns on his bike. There’s absolutely no stopping him. For a lad just turned 4 I think he’s doing brilliantly. But then again I am biased!
I had to include this photo of Dan with Richard the Gaffer of the Dodford Inn taken yesterday afternoon. Richard has the pub decked out in England Flags, has Bombardier Beer on tap (my favourite by the way) and has traditional English Morris Dancing going on today.
