Bliss on the bike

Got out on the bike today and it gave my head time to clear....nothing like a breathless day full of sunshine and the thump beneath your arse to clear the top of your head LOL..

Thank you all for your comments on my worries about the Olympia..
You really did help me get my thoughts straight and make a decision and finally I have decided that damn the cost I AM WORTH IT, it IS most likely a once in a life time chance for me and not because of age but because... if I can't afford to go the Gold Coast how the hell am I ever going to afford to go overseas to the next one.... So bugger the dollars Natural Olympia here I come...

So the decision has been made and it is full steam ahead... but first a quick outing to the Redcliffe festival on the bikes because, hey, when you have decided to do a figure contest and you are on an extremely limited diet what better place to go to than a festival full of every imaginable type of food!!!!! LOL

It is a fabulous day here and the crowds were awesome, had to do a fair bit of tippy-toeing on the bikes as the cops were out stopping anything with a heart beat today and our bikes are a touch, oh ok a lot, over the legal decibel level... its half the fun really...

So the festival was great... Hey Susie were you on the Dragon Boat??? It left the shore before I had a chance to get onto the sand and ask...

There was a great atmosphere and I wanted to take heaps of photos but discovered the batteries IN the camera were flat and so were the SPARE set in the case.. sigh!!!! We managed to get a couple of quick shots

We both drooled over the food and then ran out of time between meals so hoped on the bikes and cruised home... I told Hubby to eat anything he wanted but he was sweet and didn't have anything, or maybe it was because he had his shirt off and was scared to fill up his belly LOL
And look from mean nasty looking bikie to Bling Myster extraordinaire all in one day... the perfect man for me LOL








I ran the waterfront this morning... yes to the bridge and back without stopping.. Yay! I loved it, it was crisp and clear and fabulous way to start a wonderful day...

Off to the gym in a minute to practice posing... ahhh I am a Poser, gee ain't that something you want to yell out LOL

Once again thank you all r your comment, my head is back on as straight as it ever is.. which is pretty wonky but hey some things you just can't change LOL
