Time to catch up

Hi every one I've just got back about an hour ago from my holiday, in Whitby North Yorkshire. I am intact ... er ... apart from my beast of a bike!! I managed to almost do a wheelie, but I wasn't trying to. I managed to pull my left leg, it's OK, and add a few more scratches to my paint work!! Shit, Bugger, Bollocks! To name but a few words that passed my lips at the time of falling off the bloody thing! I have suffered with a swollen knee for three days prior to the accident. I will get to the point of replying to Spike's blog and replying to the award that she most generously gave me before I went away. I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight and having a lovely cup of tea, made by yours' truly! I haven't had time to read all 59 E mails yet. I love getting away from the real world, pigging out, drinking ample booze and falling asleep at any given moment, obviously not whilst on my bike. I can fall of that whilst it's pretty much stationary! I love to listen to the screeching seagulls, but not at 3a.m. The weather was kind on the journey up and nice and sunny on the afternoon of the Wednesday as I arrived. The weather turned nasty for pretty much the remainder of the holiday, apart from Saturday when I went on my bike to Newcastle...Geordie land!! I had an interesting conversation with a local man in the town, I asked for directions and he in his native tongue replied ' ya go down ther'... sorry but I can't remember what else he said, I tried to keep a straight face and concentrate on the details he was giving me, afterwards I thanked him and immediately got lost! The only problem with holidays is, they soon end and we have to return to the real world..... WORK!! ARRGHHHHHHH!!!! I will be back at my boring job on Tuesday, what fun. I haven't written anything since I've been away, I have rested my brain, totally chilled out.. ( rain saw to that ) and had fabulous rides on Black Thunder, the scratches are tiny and all part of a learning process
at of how not to fall of it. Thankfully I wasn't going to fast t the time otherwise I might not be here typing these words to you.

Glad to hear you had a good time on the windy coast, and glad that you're not hurt more than a few scratches and your pride!

Indigo said...

Jackie thanks, the pride din't hurt, but my left leg, the 'bad' left leg caught the brunt of the impact... but it was my own silly fault. We are meant to learn from these little blips aren't we, I guess it won't be the last time either Lol. Yes whitby is a gorgeous seaside town, it keeps pulling me back..pity the weather wasn't any better!

Shadow said...

Indigo said...

Shadow ~ Yeah I seem to be collecting quite a few scratches, but I'm OK thanks.
