The Day After!

After a very interesting BlogMeet yesterday, at which vast qantities of alcohol (see left) were consumed, the Bonds slept late. After breakfast it was decided, by BondWoman, that some exercise was needed and a cycle ride was suggested to a not very enthusiastic BondBloke, that's his arm on the right protecting his pint! We have pretty easy access to a cycle route which keeps us away from traffic so we decided to head off on a circular ride of about 10-15 miles. On looking out of the window before leaving BondBloke commented that it was "going to rain before long" (maybe not in that exact terminology) and sure enough about five minutes into the ride down it came; oh, well, not to bother there's a good hot shower waiting at the end. All was well until about a mile and a half from home, when BondWoman gets a puncture and was not that amused to be told that the tyre was only flat at the bottom! So, we wound up walking and pushing the bikes the last bit of the route, as BondBloke did not think that it would be fair just to ride off into the distance leaving BondWoman to fend for herself...

“In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn’t cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you’ve had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o’clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.”

OH! I know the feeling well - only in my case it is not confined to Sundays alone!
