special gift

I just logged into my blog a little while ago with the intention of uploading the photos below and telling you about another fellow blogger whom I greatly admire for many reasons. I always have a look at my blog roll to see who has blogged since I last logged in and lo and behold there is a lovely feature about her on flowerpress

I received this lovely gift last week but as the froglet had borrowed my camera for school camp until today I wasnt able to take photos.

I have made great use of this gift already and showed it off to my friends.

Thank you Cam for my lovely gift

maiden voyage

Well I took the beast for her maiden journey.

I went to the gym and did a step combo class then did an RPM class (stationery bike) and then when I got home I discovered that my appointment with the osteopath wasn't until 4.30pm so I quickly got changed and jumped on the bike.

WOWZER!!! awesome ride and I only went whizzing around the back blocks... I did wheelies around the roundabout several times and if the neighbours were watching they would have been wondering what the hell I was doing.

When I got home I took the opportunity to take the photo of the beast resting... this brings a quilting theme to my post

shiny new road bike

After thinking about buying a road bike for the past 4 years I finally got one!!

I'm so excited... I remember how excited I was when I bought my new hybrid. I am still going to ride my hybrid as my bestie wont be able to keep up with me! She has already asked the bike shop to fill my frame with lead to weight me down.

I got a text message from her lat night saying that she is going to call me the roadrunner and signed off as the coyote.... now I'm a bit worried as the coyote would always try and catch the roadrunner using Acme gadgets, the coyote was never successful but my friend is a little smarter than the original coyote and has already told me that when I get a puncture on our triathlons she will ride by and wave to me, so nasty!!!

in comparison to my seat on my hybrid this one isn't the most hoo har friendly either.... going to have to build up new muscles for this one!!

The fisherman was a little horrified when he saw my shiny new bike in the front room corridor, I told him it was no different to his rods and reels being inside the house! (no sense of humour). I might have to put it in our bed and see what he does!!
