No news.... is good news??

Still haven't heard anything. Yawn.

Feeling a hell of a lot better about it now for some reason. I was starting to get incredibly down about it all, and feeling flat and lifeless which is so not like me! Sunday night was horrible - not knowing whether I had a life threatening condition or not really got to me. I'd also dodgied up my back AGAIN which was painful!

But then on Monday I had heaps of wonderful asking after me and keeping me busy while Andrew's busy with the conference organising this week.

I came home and lay in a nice hot bath for ages with a good book accompanied by a bottle of wine and a pack of Tim Tams. It's the simple things in life that bring you back to earth!! After a few glasses of wine, I was the happiest person on earth giggling at anything remotely amusing.... When I got into bed, I was just thinking that I'd kill for a cup of tea, and Andrew came home, and came upstairs asking if I'd like a cup of tea, which he then made and brought me! Gee he's wonderful! I don't know where I'd be without his constant support. :-)

I rode into work again today as well - first time I've felt motivated to do that in a while, and I really enjoyed it. It's just so nice when there's a bit of a nip in the air, and the grass is green, the trees are an amazing array of reds, yellows and oranges, and all the birds are out chattering away.

Bad news is that I've pulled out of the 12 hour endurance ride in 3 1/2 weeks time, which I'm disappointed about, but there'll be more rides, and more opportunities. I'd like to go along and watch it still and support my friends who are doing it, but we'll just wait and see what happens.

Hi Jti, hang in there - don't worry about the cancelled race - there will be heaps more to do yet. Lots of us are sending positive thoughts your way!

Sarah....read your message on my blog; cycling the course would be a good idea at some later stage I think. In the back of my mind are things like : will the course be changed next year? e.g. the cycle path section. Wouldn't surprise me. Will there be a cut-off time? Wouldn't in the least surprise me & I then find I'm not going to be able to make it. There are lots of doubtfuls hanging around it, even though I fully intend to return & claim that 50km, so the doubts aren't too logical I guess!

The section I need to know is the cycle path......it's confusing being there alone & not positively knowing where to go...and to do that properly I would definitely have to walk or jog it; that's what I was thinking of doing at some stage after Gold Coast; it wouldn't take that long, it's about 13km I think.

Anyhow, I'll keep your offer in mind (thank you so much) & also see what Wombat thinks.
