Cycled to and from work today. It's a nice little ride, especially in the sun.

Now to pack up and get ready for BOA. :D

I've bought some Holstens. How many I actually bring and don't end up drinking tonight, I don't know.

No more work for me!!! Two weeks off now and of course Bloodstock tomorrow! :D

I'm actually getting rather excited and I haven't even begun to pack yet (although all the stuff is ready to be packed, I just haven't packed it yet).

I've thought about an archery thing over the years, used to know someone who went to classes. I'd be really worried to try it out considering how my shoulder is these days though.

There isn't an enormous amount of strain on the training bows we used, and at full draw you're supposed to hold the weight in your back.

If your shoulder isn't too troublesome, it might be a way to build/keep strength in it.

Beat me to it - if you're straining your shoulder it's a sign you're not doing it correctly, and an instructor will spot that before you will.

In short, I want to try it when I live in York so you'll end up getting jealous and coming along! :lol:

My neighbour is more than happy to keep my cat entertained whilst I'm away, feed her, open my door when she goes out for a smoke so Juniper can sit with her and get fussed and she said she will probably collect her in the morning and let her come and keep her company in her flat for an hour or so. She'll even water my plant and stir the blackberry wine I have brewing :D

Exercise has a wonderful way of knackering you out enough to get to sleep easily. Night night.

Managed to pack all of my stuff and two crates worth of cans in to one bag. I'm also really excited about Bloodstock now!

BLOODSTOCK BLOODSTOCK BLOODSTOCK BLOODSTOCK BLOODSTOCK

rather excited :lol:

even if I did forget my tent and sleeping bag on my first checklist, but with a few practice tries I can now get my pop-up tent down again in under 30secs ... seriously think putting a pop-up tent down should be an Olympic sport
