Winter bike rides and resolutions
This Christmas was spent with sick kids cuddled up on the sofa – nothing scary but a full set of winter bugs over our ten days off. But Duncan and I did sneak out for a 5 mile bike ride to the local pool for a swim and lunch – and going on rides like this with him is amazing. All these new adventures starting to become possible – it’s exactly how we want life to be. But we actually find that we don’t have time on weekends to do these sorts of things because we’re simply too busy – often because I’ve taken on too many volunteer commitments. As new members to the community it’s important to be involved but I think things are out of balance at the moment when I’m spending more time volunteering than doing things with my kids in my two days off. So that’s my New Year’s resolution. – say no and volunteer less, ride my bike more.
