By the time you’ve reached this elevated age, you don’t get a great many Christmas presents. And Santa Claus is clearly not satisfied that I’ve been good, for goodness sake, and I didn’t find a Van Nicholas Chinook under the tree. To be fair, I’d have been beyond gobsmacked if I had! However I am the happy recipient of an “I love to ride” necklace, and a lovely snuggly crank hoodie. Not a surprise, since these days the safest way for me to get Christmas presents I like is to buy them and then tell hubby what he’s bought me *grin*. Best of all my brother and family have bought me, as requested, a Rapha winter hat :). Can you spot the theme running through my gifts at all? 😉
So the Rapha collection (or addiction) grows…*grin*. I also had a bit of a weak moment (I may have been drinking) when pointed at the Rapha sale last night…so there may be a Galibier jersey (I’m entitled, right?!) and black logo t-shirt (black is so slimming) on their way to me too. Oops ;). Good thing I got a bit of money for Christmas too, no? Actually my best gift is a pendant/keyring that MiniMe made me at school. He’s very proud of it, has been dying to give it to me since term ended, and it’s lovely :). I just need to find a jump ring and a chain for it and then I’ll be wearing it a lot. Bless his little cotton socks :).
Clearly I’m not riding today. In fact I won’t be back on the bike until the Turkey Teaser on the 28th, which I’m already looking forward to. Time off is really not my thing… In the meantime however I shall make the most of it, and there is carb loading (aka over-indulging), and resting to be done (falling asleep on the sofa after lunch). Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all have a great day :).
