Bike and beyond

We're coming up to another centenary with Bike, and I'd like to check that I keep pedalling or should that be peddling? Assuming Erin is happy to continue to host the longest shaggy dog story in history.

I have to warn you that from Friday 4th for a few days postings might be erratic due to my visit to Yorkshire to the TdF and then having a visitor when I get home.

I see some of you noticed a new Charlotte's Tale, I intend doing something with PFH - TBK when I have a bit of time, so that's the next project.

I worked a 12 hour day went to check my emails and found one from the TdF organisers about my training in a couple of weeks time. I clicked on the link and it reverted to one that was sent in March or February. I tried to write to them about it and my email provider logged me out, which it's been doing for sometime--one evening it logged me out ten times in as many minutes. I suspect as soon as the UK stages of the TdF are completed I'll be changing my ISP I've had enough. Anyone contemplating using Talktalk - don't, they are complete and utter crap.

No Bike tonight

Sorry folks, been up in Lunnun all day as part of my training for the Tour de France (I'm not riding it, just helping to make it happen). Walked miles around the Olympic Park and didn't get home until late evening, so I'm afraid I'm too tired to do Bike tonight. Hopefully if I can wake myself up by tomorrow, I'll try and do the next exciting(yawn),thought provoking (duh!) episode of BCTS own long (winded?)running soap. I'm sure you can't wait.

This turned up on the Guardian website and I found it very sad. There are some links to reports and also some photos of the 'girls' working as prostitutes. Sometimes I think I need to count my blessings more often. The intolerance they have had or still receive is beyond my experience no wonder the health issues, substance abuse and other problems are so prevalent.

Back in January 2011, I couldn't believe I'd written episode 1234 of Bike. I wondered if I'd get to 2345. Now I know the answer. Why? is probably best not asked. Astonishingly, there are one or two people still reading it - still, there's no accounting for taste.

My best wishes to all my readers and thank you for encouraging and supporting me this far. I'm not making any predictions about 3456 even I might have run out of ideas by then - or will I?

Hugs,

Angharad

Sorry folks, Bonz is out and Whizz is refusing to dictate the story to me, so I'm not going to do a bike tonight. If the truth be told, I'm too tired to be arsed to think enough to write anything coherent.

Thanks for all the comments and kudos for my short story, 'let him wear a skirt then.'

Hopefully, normal service will resume tomorrow. If you're desperate for Bike, might suggest reading some back numbers, I've been doing so for a few weeks and apart from the typos and other mistakes, I've quite enjoyed the experience.

Sorry folks, it's got too late for me to write tonight - fell asleep in the chair after doing a long bike ride today (long for me that is) with several climbs. I didn't sleep very well last night either, so hopefully, things will be back to normal tomorrow and Bonz can dictate the next exciting episode of Dormice in Space, or whatever it's called.

I nearly gave up on posting tonight having spent an hour or so trying to get on site. Still my readers, though perhaps not as numerous as some authors have, are important to me, so I tried one last time...

It appears I now have 150,000 kudos, as I'm not allowed to give them to myself, then they must be given by others. My thanks to all who have clicked on the little button at the end of my story postings. Thank you x 150,000, please continue clicking on them, it's the only way I know readers like my stuff, unless they choose to comment as well.

Hugs to all,

Angharad

Too tired to write tonight

Sorry, got home late from work then had over an hour on the phone with my needy friend just as I started writing. Too tired now, hope things will be better tomorrow but it looks like a heavy week. In fact, life looks heavy at the moment and still worried about my daughter who is not well.

It's coming to that time again when I ask what you, the reader, thinks about Bike, should it continue are you happy with the storyline and so forth. I'm disappointed that the number of reads is down as is the number of comments and kudos, but I accept some of that might be due to the recent hiccups with the site.

Sorry, No Bike

Been on the phone to my needy friend, so no time to write tonight. I'm off to see my daughter tomorrow assuming I can traverse the flooding and survive the return journey, when a howling gale and more rain is forecast.

Life continues to shit all over me, and it appears I've been left off the list for helping with the TdF to add to my tale of woe. Assuming I survive my trip, I may do an episode tomorrow when I get home.
