Meet Our New Kittens

Say hello to our new kittens!

We used to have two beautiful cats about 15 years ago, but my second son was allergic to them, so we had to find them a new home. Thankfully he’s grown out of his allergy, so we have been thinking about getting kittens for a while.

What better time than now – with 3 teenagers in a house and covid cabin fever – to adopt two 12 weeks old rescue kittens from a local animal shelter?

Cycling Covid

Wow this week has been brutal. How are you all doing?

Looks like COVID-19 is here to stay – so my whole company has been told to work from home.

Not a huge problem for us (I work for a tech company) and we’re all set up for remote working and accessing everything from the cloud. However, it feels like the whole world has been turned upside down.

I jumped on my road bike for the first time in a years and went for a 20km spin around the river. The speed, the handlebars, my body position, my quads, the sensation of rubber tyres flying across the bitumen, the click of my derailleur changing my chain… It was all fantastic. I’ve missed this so much.

I didn’t mind that I totally forgot how to use cleats and hand signals. I legit forgot how my gears worked. And I wouldn’t have been able to change a tyre tube if my life depended on it!

Anyway, here’s to social distancing and caring for your body and mind, before full quarantine kicks in.
