Tag Archives: Torrington


Today has mostly been spent on my bike! I’m not a great cyclist, and it must be at least a year since the bikes saw the light of day, but it was so much fun!

We piled the bikes into the back of the car and drove to Torrington when you can get on the Tarka Trail. Our cunning plan was a slow poodle to Bideford and back. Being an old railway line it is flat-ish so fairly easy cycling. The sun shone and we set off at a steady pace.


The views were fabulous and the miles ticked by.


There were faces in the trees too!


We made it to Bideford for lunch and cycled through the town to the lovely Cafe du Parc for coffee and shared a ham & cheese baguette. Lovely!

The cycle back was harder – mainly because I was tired and my bum hurt! But – we made it! Good job really as the car was there!

Dinner has been baked cod, mashed potato and braised leeks. I was starving!

Tomorrow – I have a feeling I will have trouble walking!

Have a super Sunday!

Dentist Day

You know how I feel about dentists! Today was a first – the first time I have been to a ‘normal’ six-monthly check up! In the past I have just waited until I absolutely *had* to go – the longest was seven years!

Today I was brave and off we went to get my check-up, with the promise of coffee after.


We had to stop on the way for these guy’s –


Heading off to a new field!

So – dentist gave me the all clear and an appointment for February 2013 – Yeah!

Home and poached eggs for lunch with bacon, hubby had toast and tomatoes too. That’s it for food today – the second of two fast days for this week.

We have just been for our usual walk instead of eating! But drizzly out.


The lovely cows in the field opposite –


Just having a sit down!

Now I have some research to do, so have a great evening and a fantastic Friday!
