First of all I would like to say a big thank you to all my lovely blogging friends who have been through my
accident with me and have given me so much encouragement and well wishes. Most of you I have only recently got to know and live on the other side of the world to me. I think it is wonderful we can share our lives together at whatever level we are comfortable with.
Many of you made reference to getting back on the horse when commenting on my Cycling Crazy post. I have really been naughty and some might say 'Crazy' for getting on my bike before the recommended 12 weeks but I have missed it so much and I can ride without pain. Of course if I came off I could be in some trouble. However so far so good and I am being extremely vigilant.
Not only have I got back on the horse with my cycling but also have survived 2 busy weeks at school. I am really glad to be back with my charges and have been getting myself re-acquainted.
This has been a holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen's Birthday. It has been wonderful to have my daughter Alice staying with us for a couple of days. Alice has applied for a positiion in the army, in the bomb disposal unit of all places. I hope they pay her well. Apparently not as dangerous as it sounds though I remain unconvinced. She has done her physical and aptitude tests and is now awaiting the verdict. If accepted she will start her duties at the beginning of August.

Yesterday Lea, Alice and I travelled up to Palmerston an hour up the road to visit my oldest daughter, Kate who is studying Human Nutrition. Many of you will know both girls though some new followers may not. It was a short visit! We had a scrumptious lunch together and a brief catch up. She has been working really hard towards her upcoming first semester exams.
