Hello my dear friends....I thought I would let you know what we got up to LAST weekend....because SOMEONE forgot to do a post last week....


It was a nice sunny day so we decided to go for a walk......

We walked at Headley Heath where we met up with our friends at #BTSurrey...and this time we bumped into the cows at the top of the hill.....they were slightly in the way....

....so we approached them quietly and slowly and spoke softly to them so they did not get spooked...and asked politely if we could take their picture for @sidthecatahoula.....

...Miss Lola thought they smelled quite interesting.......

....but her favourite bit of the day was getting home and having her tripe stick to chew in the garden.....oh dear, see how long the grass had got.....

...in the evening I watched the Champions League final with @terriertypist and we spoke to our German friends Yogi and Mr Finn on twitter....they were both supporting Borussia Dortmund and so did we....

Dortmund scored!!....

...but then the Bayern Munich players kept throwing themselves on the ground looking for penalties.....I auditioned for Bayern Munich.....

Miss Lola did not like the football and hid in the garden.....

....Peter Tosha dn I sat outside to enjoy the last of the evening sun....Miss Lola was a bit puzzled...I think she had forgotten the password to get back into the kitchen....

We are hoping for some nice sunny weather this weekend too.....Clapton

Weekend...back in the saddle...

Hello my dear friends...we have been enjoying a very nice weekend indeed...and buidling up to getting back onto the bike for the first time since we got knocked off two weeks ago....

Miss Lola makes it clear she would like some attention....

...so Miss Lola and I went for a walk at Headley Heath where we had #BTSurrey....this is the gorse bush where Miss Lola went rabbit-sniffing...

I think the rabbit-sniffing was quite energetic because I beat her to the top of the Big Hill....

...then in the evening, I completed another of my "firsts"...my first trip to the cinema!....*claps paws*....

We went to see Start Trek! ...and it was on an iMax screen in 3D!!!...OMD it was loud...and very exciting....it gets 5 Paws Up from me...

...a certain amount of snacks may have been consumed....

....but that was Ok because on Sunday morning me and Typist ventured out into the Surrey Hills on our bike with its new wheels fitted after our accident.....lets get going!!

We went through Bansted and waved to @hugoterrier and Dotty.....

We stopped at the church in reigate for a drink and a bit of banana snack....

I gave the new wheels a quick check to make sure they were doing their job....

...and we left quickly and quietly so that we didnt disturb the service

We even saw some cricket....can you see the men in white behind me?

...I insisted we stop after 30 miles for a pit stop, a drink and to check the stats...
Nom nom.....

It was good to eat our second banana snack in our own pawsonal hut....


...and I had to check the map to make sure we were still in the Surrey Hills and not the Andes....

...and after 45 long miles we got back to Ashtead and went to Bike Beanz for our porridge and banana and honey...they are fuelling the revolution....BOL...

...but there is no rest for the wicked....and I h took Miss Lola off for a nice walk in the sun...she was panting hard....

...but there was still a long way to go down the gallops....

...and Miss Lola will make sure she investigates every smell along the way...
End of the Day

...I hope you all had a lovely weekend too. For the technically minded, you can see all the details of where we got to on the bike and how fast we went HERE ...including the bits where I broke the speed limit...
