Confessions of a Cycling Widow

cyclingbike6 My husband is quite addicted to cycling. It’s possibly a healthy obsession (apart from the cost and recovery time from accidents 😀 ) It certainly keeps him away from home for most of the weekend. He cycles, stops for a coffee and a chat, and cycles some more. The bike is well travelled and often photographed in scenic locations along the ride.

Covering every flat surface in our home with decoupage paper, using glue like a five year old and then photographing my handiwork from alternative locations.

Grooming my fur-babies like a show dog mommy, including all the silly sound effects you would expect … who’s mummy’s little fluffy angel etc … you get the idea 😀

Most importantly, he enjoys himself. I recharge my batteries. Everyone ends up happy!

Except maybe Miles … he’s not overfond of a thorough grooming 😀
