What's he got to do with it? I guess you think he would approve of my environmentally friendly choice of mower!

For no reason in particular, here is a picture of J on my shoulders in a car park
Here is a photo of a tram that was given to the Danish tram museum by the Australians when the Crown Prince married Mary (who is of course an Aussi), it was shipped like a giant match-box model on a container ship.
Have a look at BWW for some good shots of the mid west wilderness and a bicycle factory from the outside, I'd love to go in there, maybe we'll make a family trip (only joking family!)

Home again in the morning to start thinking about going on holiday and getting ready for another attempt at a 24 hour race.

So we had an unexpected sleep in a bed and an unplanned sightseeing trip to Copenhagen
But now look what I have found...

This all stemmed from the appalling weather that started the night before the race that lead to a total and utter mud bath. The trail was a deep much mixed with mmuddy streams and the odd lake. This meant that we both fell off a few times although no serious damage was done and the grit ate through out brake pads in no time. No brakes = no riding and a few beers before a warm dry bed at home.
Pics to follow...

The mail order package that I was waiting for seems to have been lost by the Danish courier, so I won't be getting my new extra padded gloves to be riding in at the weekend - Bummer!

Yesterday MK had a tortuous 1½hour journey to work and had to start her first meeting from the car. 15 minutes after that meeting ended the nursery called her to say that J had a fever so she had to go home to get him. Bummer!
Hopefully the little guy is better today as MK is working from home and having him around has a serious impact on ones productivity...

The wedding in Copenhagen was great although warm, we were melting in the church and rather warm in the restaurant, but the boat trip around the harbour was very refreshing, possibly as a result of the cold champagne...
There was great food and wine and we had a generally a good time but without J for a bit of a change. It was nice to stay in a hotel and the air conditioning was very welcome last night, however,to make some sort of point in our absence, J appears to have slept until 8 this morning!!!
MK was stunningly glamorous as ever
And I was happy to still fit into some of my clothes

Finally there is Mr Norrel and Jonathan Strange, this was very long (over 1000 pages of small print) and took a long time to read but was worth the effort, a sort of Harry Potter for grown ups with a bigger vocabulary. This one is certainly not for WRM, but may be something for a newly retired school teacher with plenty of time... maybe not, I don't really know.
We had a ride on a tram or two, J had a lot of fun playing hide and seek (he's not very good at it though) and we ate ice creams, I suppose there are much worse ways to spend an afternoon.
Tomorrow we're off the the wedding in Copenhagen, the reception is on a boat and to top it all off we are staying in a hotel! I'll try to take some pictures, but I am not promising to get around to posting them!

For those of you who are interested, the mountainbiking in the dark was just as terifying as you may expect, made worse by the man eating mosquitos.
