My new ride length record

I don't usually do super long rides because they take too long and if I've got that much time to cycle I'd rather be hanging with Tabitha whilst she's still interested in spending time with me!

That being said, Sven came to visit and we planned to do some longer rides. This one was actually pretty nice - it was so flat and fast, it meant that the distance was more psychological than physical (though my back and feet did start to hurt around kilometre 80)

When we arrived, I wanted to take a victory photo on this pier, but someone came and started fishing so I took a photo of him, too.

Like consistent white balance? Keep walkin'

These things are always so satisfying to build.

First school uniform

Tabitha likes one of her new school uniforms. This weekend, parenting-wise, has been hard work. I'd be looking forward to going back to work if that was being enjoyable at the moment.

Hey, look what else the waves do.

Some toys never get old

I've wanted one of these foreverspin tops since I first laid eyes on them. Something about a symmetrical, balanced chunk of metal just does it for me. But the shipping was pretty high and the tops themselves aren't that cheap. For what you get, they're pretty reasonable, but a high number is still a high number.

One thing I didn't anticipate was how much Tabitha would like these things. If I'd known that, justifying the purchase would've been a whole lot easier!
