All eyes will be on Yorkshire in a couple of weeks' time as the Tour de France sets the cobbled streets alight. Actually, I don't think they'll be cycling across many cobbles... can you imagine the chaos, not to mention the discomfort? I can picture it now! Last year's winner Chris Froome (I always think it should be Vrrrr-oooom!) will be pedalling just a couple of miles from where Ted and I live.
Talking of cycling, the chauffeur decided to try and encourage Ted to trot alongside him when he got his bike out of the 'van on our last trip. The flat campsite at Hunstanton was an ideal training ground, he thought, so carefully and slowly set off with Ted on the lead at his side.
You see it all the time, don't you? Obedient dogs trotting busily at their owner's pace. Did it go to plan? No! Luckily there were no disasters, but Ted wanted to jump up on the bike too, and I don't think even he is slim and agile enough to perch on the handlebars. He prefers to watch the birdie, in more ways than one – as the picture shows!
