Busy weekend.

What started out as a quiet weekend turned in to a rather busy one today,not that we are complaining as we had all our bikes hired out today leaving us twiddling our thumbs until they were returned.
Lets hope thats the start of a busy summer for us.

Great staff at the QEQM Hospital.

I just want to say what great staff they have at the QEQM Hospital especially the Paediatric Nurses who treated Caitlin on Sunday, we ended up having to take Caitlin to A&E on Sunday afternoon for one of her regular trips (her first to the QEQM) after an accident involving her towing me behind her bike on a skateboard!!

I was not to blame (Honestly) she just collided with the wall on Margate sea front whilst trying to avoid a couple on the pavement,her injuries she received were one broken toe and one badly lacerated little toe due to the fact she was wearing flip flops at the time.................

so the moral of this story is do not cycle in flip flops wear steel toe caps instead!!

Race For Life.

Whilst i was run off my feet by the mass hoards of people wanting to hire our bikes (joke) Sharon and Caitlin was taking part in the Race For Life 5k at Palm Bay, they raised just over £100.oo for a worthy and deserving cause which is too close to home for us at the moment.

My Dad who is fighting cancer at the moment was there at the start to watch them on their way so i hope they made him proud.

Back to "Planet Thanet"

Well here we are again back in "Planet Thanet" after having last weekend off to go and celebrate my younger brother Jimmy`s 30th birthday,we had a 80s weekend and stayed in a old rectory in Tattingstone Suffolk.

The place was amazing and had 15 bedrooms,games room and 2-3 acres of garden but now its back to Margate to try and get people to hire our bikes at the moment it is pretty quiet so we shall sit and await the rush..............

Here we go again.

Well here we go again just after i blogged last week my Dad became too ill to come down to Kent so stayed in London, so we decided to only open up on Saturday and go home to spend Sunday with my Mum and Dad.
Saturday was very slow and we did not hire out any bikes but that was the least of our worries our priorities lay elsewhere at the moment.
This week yet again my Dad had to spend Two days in the Royal Marsden (Tues/Weds) and had to have yet another blood transfusion due to his white blood cell count being low, he has been taken off the trial Chemo tablets until they sort out the dosage and hopefully this will be done on Tuesday.
Anyway we are going to open up all weekend (hopefully) as we know my Dad is in capable hands
and hope to hire out some bikes.
