Learning how to ride

We took Chloé out for the afternoon to teach her how to ride her bike with out stabilisers. I found a nice stretch of path near the St. Catherine’s Park and ride car park that gets hardly used.

She’s had a while without them by herself, but I thought it was about time to actually teach her how to ride a bike properly. So I packed it in the car, picked Kate from work and headed down to the Park and Ride.

Catching up

It’s been a while since I last updated, because I really haven’t know what to write. The odd thing is, it’s not as if nothing has been going on either; loads of stuff has happened.

My niece turned two on November 7th. We travelled down to my sisters in Kent, the weekend before her birthday, to spend some time with her and give her the presents that we bought.

While down in Kent, my sister asked me to try and get some photos of her and her new boyfriend, Jake. The entire family ventured out to Leybourne Lake Country Park for the afternoon; it was absolutely freezing! I did however, manage to get a nice shot of them both.

On the Sunday, the slight cold that I had for a couple of days, decided to take a turn for the worse. I started to have hallucinations and ran a really high temperature. One minute I’m boiling, the next I’m freezing cold. It was horrendous. Thankfully, I started to feel better to drive home on the Monday evening. We finally made it home at just gone 1am.

The following week, 14 November, it was Ryan’s birthday; he’s now seven years old. We had a set budget of £200 for his birthday. That £200 would pay for some presents, a trip to the zoo, a movie at the cinema, dinner, a birthday cake and celebrations with his cousins and aunts. for a seven year-old, he does pretty damn well out of us!
