Last year I got a new bike and although I have been out with the kids here and there, I was yet to complete (what I would call) a proper bike ride. Today I achieved this with a 10 mile ride.
The weather this weekend has been glorious and with it being a bank holiday weekend it was perfect for getting out and about. I woke on Sunday and would have usually ended up lazing in bed and then watching football for most of the day. Today was different though as I decided enough is enough and headed out for a bike ride.
Enjoyed a short bike ride around Leyland with the boys this morning in pleasant weather conditions.
With the weather getting (a bit!) better, I decided a bike ride would be a good idea before watching the afternoon’s F1 race. I headed out with the boys heading nowhere in particular and we wound our way around Leyland for 4.1 mile ride.
Last weekend was the annual trip down to the capital for the WordCamp London conference. It is always a terrific event and a chance to meet up with some old friends. This weekend did not disappoint and was a cracker!
The weekend always starts early on a Friday morning. In fact it could start on a Thursday as there is a contributor day (where you can help contribute to the open source WordPress project) on the Friday. However this would mean just too long away from the family.
Over the last few days we have managed some lovely walks to school in the improving weather.
With the weather starting to get a little better (although we had snow again this week) I am able to get out a little more walking the kids to school. In fact I am going to try and walk pretty much everyday that I can – i.e. if it is not throwing it down with rain.
This blog runs some software called WordPress to manage the content and do other stuff. It is quite popular (powered over 30% of the web) and it is getting a major new feature. Here is my test of installing this feature on this site.
Yesterday I was delighted to chair a session with the core developers of WordPress's new editor and publishing workflow project – Gutenberg. That chat has brought about this post. Let me explain.
Last year I concentrated heavily on getting back into fitness through running. I ran over 1000 miles and aim to continue this during the course of 2018. However I have also decided this year I wanted to improve my strength and today I made a start.
My wife found some very good value Kettle Bells in the Lidl phamplet that sometimes comes through to door or is collected from store. As usual they were running a new year fitness push on equipment but in there were some Kettle Bells at pretty good value.
