Unauthorised item in the bagging area

Woah- my thighs don't work very well this morning. My arse has more or less survived the ride though, you'll be pleased to know. One hundred miles in six hours and eleven minutes. I'm well chuffed. Thanks again to those who sponsored me. Our team total in raising money for The Christie currently stands at just shy of two thousand pounds.

September always seems to me as the month of change, more than any other except January (and January is pretty grim really). The end of summer, the start of Autumn, the nights noticeably drawing in, back to school... The weather forecast for this week is really good, naturally, after a wet and chilly August. September Gurls by Big Star is inexplicably great, those crashing chords, heart wrenching lyrics and general sense of love lost, the one that got away. I love it, and I'm not an especially big fan of Big Star.

September Gurls

That's a fantastic amount of money raised SA, well done to all of you on completing the 100 mile cycle.

Congratulations (and I hope the relevant parts of your anatomy recover quickly!)
As The Swede says, thanks for starting the week with a good'un - (September Gurls is one of my all-time faves).
