Bike Safe Day for Mark

Mark is on a 'Bike Safe' day today with Wiltshire Police. He returned to biking after a 20 year gap and has treated himself to a 'Kawasaki 500' plus all the gear! He's been back on the road since July and was quite nervous before he left today! (in case they told him he was a rubbish rider!)


Mark commutes 44 miles a day just for work and to be honest the petrol costs have been astronomic and just on the school run I do 24 miles aday. So his bike is a money saving item????



Tori had a great day yesterday, she had some lovely presents :- a punchball and boxing gloves, a PS 2 game, 'Pink' CD, 'Fallout Boys' CD, a beautiful dragon ornament, a belt and silk scarf with a skull and crossbones on and a couple of other little pressies. She very much wanted just a family day, so we went to the cinema to see 'Cars' which was very entertaining and then out for a meal after. She's a funny sausage really, most '16' yr olds would not think a birthday with family any fun at all but Tori loved it. I do worry about how few friends she has but her phsychiatrist said not too, some people just don't need friends???????

Glad a good time was had by all, especially Tori.

Not everyone needs or even wants lots of friends.

I have always been 'self sufficient' and happy with my own company. I am a very friendly person, but not one to be in and out for coffee, so to speak.

So long as one has a good relationship with parents or children or spouse or all three would be good LOL - and is happy and busy, then I guess that's fine.

Better to be like that, than have lots of friends - and the petty disagreements that could happen LOL

He had a great day on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed the training!

I must admit I enjoy am never afraid of being on my own altho given the opportunity I can talk the hind leg of a donkey. I just feel Tori would benefit in conversations with friend if she practised more!!!
