Yesterday was the first really cold day of the winter and it also happened to be the day of the 3rd round of the slush cup mountain bike race series. It was a really nice sunny morning, there was hardly any mud to contend with and the race was a lot of fun.
I was 119th out of 216 so firmly in the middle as ever. The problem is that you are allocated a start spot and by the time the crowds have thinned out, the guys in front are so far in front that you have no chance of catching them. I have to be honest though, I belong in the middle and I am happy to stay there.
In the afternoon, we all went to a local farm with T&B to find a Christmas tree and to see the Christmas market. We succeed in finding a tree and J now has a father Christmas hat with flashing lights around it - very tasteful!
Finally, when we sat down on the sofa last night to relax I felt very cold and tired, this got worse and worse until I went to be realising that I was getting sick. I think spent about 4 hours tossing and turning, sweating and not settling as I tried to go to sleep. As a result I am home today feeling rather crappy and hoping that I don't have swine flu !
