Got Phil up at silly o'clock. Got up at 6am proper. Took dog a walk, got papers. Did a bit of work on repairing the Penn beachcaster. Watered everything. Harvested some spuds out of one of the tubs. Later in day strimmed round the garden - that machine is a pain in the ass and no mistake. Then mowed outside, front lawn, back strip of lawn and down the side lane. Fence painting after that and another coat of varnish on the Penn. Later in the afternoon went for a walk to Osmaston Lakes with Lucy, Lily and the boss. Beautiful spot I've never been to before. Twenty plus years and I never knew there was a watermill down in Shirley valley?

Up at 4am, woke Phil up, then up again at 5:15 as Phil hadn't actually got up and his mobile was ringing downstairs. Got him out the house in a hurry, all good stuff. As bosskat was going up town I thought I'd not take the dog up town but let her have a run round a nearby big field - however Lily dug her feet in so put her in car and fetched papers anyway, evidently she likes a walk up town! Visited the Consultant at a group in Heage then into office. All good stuff. Had intended to go running but didn't - did a bit more walking though. Few jobs at home then loaded car up with the Boardman Comp ready for cycling to work from Belper.

Up early to get Phil up - he got off okay today, bless him. Took dog up town to get papers. Got off to Belper - dropped some documentation off at a Consultant's house. Cycled in to work from Belper - according to Strava I had 6 personal bests, a 2nd best and two third best performances today so quite pleased with that all things considered. http://www.strava.com/activities/78131916

Friday 30th August 2013
Dog walked. Dropped paperwork off at a Consultant's house for a special project. Off to Hollie's Belper group. Stayed the same - as much as I deserve. Got home, got loaded up, went to Wales - camping in 20 mph winds - must be mad. Hardly slept all night.

Up at silly o'clock as didn't sleep a wink hardly. Went to Holyhead, stopped at maccadees for Breakfast then up Holyhead Mountain. Beautiful views and a decent three mile walk.

|Looking towards the area they call the Range in the distance - the bay is called Abraham's Bosom I think.|
