Up at crack of dawn. Didn't sleep well at all. Such is life. Slow 6.7 mph run. All good.
Monday 29th April 2013
Did a short spin on the bike to fetch papers (3.5miles?), Which was nice. Golf at Broughton Heath which was also quite good - scored pretty well - two pars on front nine and four in a row on back nine. Work. Left work about 6pm - did some more cycling (6 miles) before it went dark then planted 6 cucumbers and three pots with basil in em. All good stuff.
Tuesday 30th April 2013
Up 5:50 after ignoring alarm clock twice. Short 3.5 miles run at 9:50 pace is okay. Long day at work ahead - up to Eckington at lunch time then down to St Neots late afternoon. Eckington got moved to Thursday. Went to St Neots though. All went well back home for 10:30 all good.
Wednesday 1st May 2013
Dragged mesen out of bed at 5:55 - bit of a struggle. Ran for 3.88 miles at I think 10:20 ish pace which is a bit average but very tired and a bit of jip in left ankle. Such is life. Got into work for 8:45 - very late. Such is life. Did a mile walk at lunch time which is from the office to the other side of the railway bridge and back.
Got home - had tea then got all the mowing done. Good stuff. Went out and hit a 6-iron a few times up the golf course - some shots very sweet indeed, even the bad ones didn't lose a tremendous amount of distance.
Thursday 2nd May 2013
Up at 5:50. Woke up the wee laddie. Did as many jobs as I could ahead of a quick six mile bike ride. Watered everything - runner beans and onions poking through. Will be planting the runner beans outside in a few weeks all being well. In to the office before my boss for just about first time this week - all this gardening stuff definitely getting in the way of things. Golfing after work with Ed, Mike and Tom from work at the 11 hole Alfreton Golf Course - how does that work you ask - see course layout below!

|Final score card - we didn't get full 18 holes in but was fun none-the-less.|
Sorted it out through GroupOn - £32 for four ball with bacon cob and a coffee to kick off. Made it like a mini-society outing with prize for nearest the pin on 6th hole going to Mike, longest drive on 8th going to Tom and Ed got the best chip-in prize which was added at the end of the comp!
Friday 3rd May 2013
Up early after bed late. 3.5 mile run at 10:18 pace. Ok. Watered everything. Took Doug some tomato plants. Picked up some paperwork from Hollie on my way in to office for just gone 9am. All good so far.
Saturday 4th May 2013
Up at 4am. Made the child a cup of tea, went back to bed but couldn't sleep. Fetched a Draper 180l tumble composter from Hallmark Tractors in Sudbury. Will make usable composty stuff in 2 months flat.
Golf was okay - shot 90 which was steady after starting with an 8, John won though on same score with his 26 handicap - bandit.
Got home had a look at the folding BBQ that I did purchase from Lidl not two days ago - quite impressed.
To finish off the day went to see Greg Locke at Derby Assembly Rooms he was really, really funny.
