I started off today a bit cranky, probably should have ridden on my own rather than inflict myself on others but everyone came out alive so I guess that's all good.

Rode about 2.5 hours then ambitiously decided to invite friends over for dinner. Considering how sick I was earlier this week I probably should have taken it easy for the rest of the day.
On my way out to pick up dinner fixings I got a couple of good shots.

Crow in a tree:
Apologies if you're getting tired of the tree shots butI love them as photo subjects.
West Coast bragging shot, snow drop in the rain. In January:
This is my picture of the day, btw. And no, Mum, I did not spray the flowers with water, I found them like that!

When I got home from shopping I realized what I'd gotten myself into. I like my apartment very much but it is most definitely not set up safely for one of these:

I thought I'd reasonably kid-proofed my place but Hiroki quickly found all the breakable and sharp things I'd forgotten. Happily he managed not to kill himself or wreck the place. Too badly:

Wow, you sure have a lot of water bottles! You should have Hiroki over a day two before the boys and I stay again; that way it will seem like the boys are so much less work ;)

I get them free at races and from our club sponsors. I think I've only paid for one over past six years.

You ever need a water bottle - let me know, I'll hook you up!

The boys aren't a lot of work, I just eat non-kid friendly food (it's also non-Dad friendly food!) so cooking is a bit interesting.
