Simple chicken dish: drizzle in olive oil, little salt & pepper then bake. Use bread to soak up the juices. Yum!
70% off Grimbergen? Oh, go on then! And no, not out of date - got a year to finish the two cases. Tricky!
Spectacular winter's day (yes - still winter!) on the Aspin. First ride in shorts for ages & it's up here! Toasty!
Spring is coming!
Another glorious day to be out on the bike. Spring is certainly on the way!
Why I don't 'like' much: Facebook ‘like’ is “potent weapon”. It “tells you all about an individual & how to convince them" #YouAreTheProduct
Good as winning the lottery in France: walking into a boulangerie just as fresh bread comes out of the oven. Yum!
Had a couple of beers waiting on #kbk & now not sure if I should have more or some wine with lunch. Tricky decision! Why is life so hard!
Following from my previous update. Yes... well... was there really any choice? Cheers!
In a bar drinking beer & watching football. Feels like such a novelty! Nice selection of brews here! Cheers!
Out riding 'early' as classics season starts today. Thought it might be a hardship to ride early but... erm... no!
Dear Google, I haven't lived in London for a while, but... Liverpool St to Queensway in 16 minutes? Sounds unlikely!
Today we made the 'mistake' of trying a very small ski station at a very busy time in very hot weather. Oh well...
Hmmmmmmm.... pizzaaaaaaaaa :P ... and some tartiflette for good measure. Burp!
Snowshoeing at Payolle. Fabulous day. Am not convinced odd footwear was required but it made things entertaining
Post skiing treats: Vin chaud & blueberry tart. Nom, nom, nom! Oh, and coffee for someone else for some reason
XC Skiing at Payolle. Thank you Claire, our very patient guide, for showing the way. What a perfect day for it!
Random capture from a late afternoon stroll down the road. #Beautiful #Tranquil #Relaxing #Pyrenees
CX World Champs live from... oh... Luxembourg. Well, Belgium is their heartland so trying to copy that atmosphere
Ate 5 croissants today. Oops! 3 with bacon & cheese. 2 with jam & cream. Yum! Fuel/refuel on huge day of skiing
Skied 7,000m vertical yesterday yet somehow thought a ride with the local club to be a good idea today. Legs now destroyed! In a good way
Apres ski in a nice cosy bar. Love Pratiwi's bowl of hot chocolate, but went something more refreshing Cheers!
Back up the Col du Tourmalet. Although something's a little bit different this time...
Another perfect day on the slopes. Lucky at least one of us changed something in their outfit!
Heading back down the mountain. That cloud hung in the valley all day - was a much better idea to get up above it!
Bonjour from the Grand Tourmalet. Awesome day on the piste. Imagine when the other half of the resort is open!
Driving up to La Mongie after fresh snowfall. 4x4 on snow tyres is pretty impressive here. Feels like a normal day
... 4 hours later... what an amazing day!
"january 15 famous birthdays"... who'd have thought! #HappyBirthdayToMe Thanks to all the well wishers
Random views from the local roads we travel almost daily. Ever changing mountain scenery never disappoints!
Pratiwi didn't want to go for a short stroll today, but after being talking into it, turns out it was fun!
Looks like there's been a nearby accident involving a truck of icing sugar & it's blown all over the place!
Bloody hell! More mountain traffic jams! Hope this makes you city slickers feel better!
Bike club dinner. No-one behind because us newbie pommies sat at the last table. Don't worry, we weren't alone!
Post-ride refuel. Pratiwi was worried this was too much. LOL... Bless!
4pm on New Year's Eve. Sat in a hardware store. I'm feeling so tired could fall asleep right here. Doesn't bode well for this evening!
No ride NYE so 2016 done! See cheesy infographic. Bonus fun fact: 343h is around 6% of my waking hours. #NotEnough
Does winter riding get any better than this? Unbelievable day playing on the Col d'Aspin!
Having discussion about contents of the fridge, so took this photo to share. Other shelves didn't seem important
Xmas 2016. Fabulous lunch with fabulous views & fabulous friends. How much fabulous can you handle? Hic!
Happy holidays to all! Wonderful xmas eve dinner with friends here. Thx for that & lending us a tree for this shot
Little walk up near Col des Palomières. Not bad for the first day of winter! Making some new friends too
Patisserie didn't have the cake we wanted (it's not strawberry season). Oh well, will have to pick something else!
Misty day in the foothills. Caught a moment of sunshine peaking through to light up the other side of the valley.
