The past week...

In a moment of madness I have once again registered to take part in the British Heart Foundation High Peak Trail Winter Challenge Walk (what a mouth full that is!) so on 18 November I’ll be setting out on another 17.5 mile sponsored walk in the Derbyshire Peak District. I’ll be posting details of how you can sponsor me during the next few days.

The problem I’ve had with my side has just about cleared itself up so I’ve managed three days on the mountain bike this week, but no gym as yet. If all goes okay, and I feel up to it, then Tuesday should see me back at the gym doing a light workout and maybe a swim. I need to be getting myself in shape for that walk!

On Thursday, I had been planning on going over to Crewe to see The Reasoning play at The Limelight Club. As it turned out work was a total pain, as it has been for much of the week, and that added to the thought of battling the rush hour traffic saw a last minute change of plan - I stayed at home with a pint instead!

Saturday, it was the Eco Fest. at Markeaton Park and Neverland played a gig there. Well, Neverland playing so close to home… I had to be there! The P.A. was rather small shall we say, the stage not much bigger, but the music was great! For saying that this was not a music festival, but an environmental awareness event, the crowd loved it.

Today, Lynda and I went to Donington Park for the Renault World Series event. It was a good day out, even better for being free, but was a total pain to get to and from! The circuit is only 10 miles from home but it took us over an hour and a half to get there and almost an hour to get home! The traffic was horrendous!

SOME OF THE HISTORIC RACE CARS.

My mate Gary was also there so it gave us a chance to chill out with a few beers, catch up on everything that’s been going on and generally act like a pair of terrible twins! Thankfully, Lynda and Suzanne, Gary’s girlfriend, were there to keep us out of too much trouble! I never did get a chance to take photos of the Renault promotional girls!

A BALANCED DIET - A PINT IN EACH HAND!

Highlight of the day for me had to be watching the ING Renault F1 Grand Prix car doing its demonstration laps - the speed and noise were just awesome.

I’ve stuck the video clip above so that I can test the new Blogger video upload - taking video on a stills camera is not the best way to do things!

  1. I'm glad you got the video clip. Next best thing to
    being there. Always good to see Mick and Adrian together. They make a great team.
    Poor Boz got left out. Maybe next time. Great looking cars. I mostly liked the pic of
    Lynda and her footlong.
    They're much better with chili sauce though.
    That's what I like about you two. You always seem to make
    the most out of your weekends.

    p.s. Did you drink both those or did you share?
