Happy Easter lovelies! Have you eaten lots of chocolate eggs?! I have only had one half this weekend, but that’s mostly due to the fact I ate the first half during the week and Brad consumed my little one, that I was saving, whilst I was out on Saturday. Boo!
The bank holiday doesn’t really mean much to us, since we have been self employed, as we always work straight through them regardless. Plus running a business that predominantly takes my time on weekends, means a long weekend is a thing off the past. Luckily I get to do a job I love and travel the country meeting (and enjoy bants with) all kinds of new people! Talking of which, I had such a fantastic photo booth booking on Saturday night up in Burnley. It was for a large Indian wedding and the booth was so mental all night, they even booked me for an extra hour whilst I was there! I left Bristol at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and didn’t get home until 3am Sunday morning. It was a long old drive but well worth it.
I was up early (considering) editing all the photos and getting them uploaded so Brad and I could get up and out to enjoy the sunshine. We both thought it would be a good day to get our bikes out. They haven’t been out since last year so they needed their tires pumping up and a bit of a wipe down. We piled them in (and on top of) the freelander, along with both the dogs and headed out to Warmley to park up next to the cycle path. It’s hard to cycle anywhere directly from our house with the dogs in tow, there’s too many main roads and not suitable for scatty dogs.
We cycled all the way along to the Jolly Sailor which was about five miles each way. It’s the first time Puggy has been out with the bikes since he was a puppy and small enough to fit in the old basket that I used to have on the front, which has since met it’s demise. Poor little pup was knackered by two miles in, whilst Logan was strides ahead pulling Brad along. In the end it was just too far for his little legs to carry him so between us, we had to pick him up and carry him for a break, such a pampered puppy!
Although the sun had gone behind the clouds before we had even started, it was still a lovely day for a bike ride. It did pop out for a bit whilst we were sat on the lock enjoying a pint of cider. Needless to say after all the cycling and a distinct lack of sleep, I (and both the boys) was shattered by late afternoon and enjoyed a long nap on the sofa with a tired Puggy for a foot warmer.
