    Leigh got a reaction from Mrs DAVIES in Senior Moments.   
    Never been a morning person , Got up latish 9.00am this Sunday got my cycling kit on and then decided to charge my Kindle that I had used last night before going to sleep. I knew I had put it by the side of the bed before going to sleep. But,couldn't find it anywhere . Moved the bed over wasn't there .Searched the house no t to be found  ,. Sent Lynda to check the house . No good . Had another go to no avail.
    Decided to look again after my ride . Put my mobile into my back cycling shirt pocket where low and behold I'd put my Kindle . It had followed me around the house in my searching. Must have put it there in place of my mobile !!!
    Please feel free to record your own Senior Moments .But , be aware if you beat mine you may find an enforced house move to an expensive care home.

    Got home dry but exhausted  .Overtook a cyclist on the way and was feeling chuffed until he told me he was recovering from open heart surgery which rather spoilt the feeling of achievement) Washed up etc 1hr plus (with Chris's valuable help) Cut the lawns ,did some gardening then collapsed onto the bed .... 
    Further to our breaktime discussion on the origin of sayings ...Hoist by his own petard..
    The phrase's meaning is literally that the bomb-maker (a "petard" is a small explosive device) is blown up ("hoisted" off the ground) by his own bomb, and indicates an ironic reversal, or poetic justice.
    I knew you were dying to have the puzzle solved.

    Enjoyed the day thank you to all . Wouldn't have seen the scenic route if I had gone down it . My head was too far hung in exhaustion to see anything but the road.
    Thanks to Moira, Ken and Tess for controlling the front to a reasonable pace until the Rous Lench hill . I think I will have to rethink my training plan after I saw others sprint up, not all of them youthful riders .

    Had great reservations about going out in weather this cold .However,met the other group John Shelley,Tim and Chris (known as Michelle's husband) and Chris Kent and started to enjoy the day . Chris and I went to Auntie Rita's riding with the others for part of the way . Found the cafe quite full of cyclists including Andy from the Beacon . Went back along Chris's route.Enjoyed the day. Thanks to Chris and others for their company and Barry for his advice . Checked on return and all parts were present.

    Only Chris of Kent and myself today . Went a circuitous route to Auntie Rita's . She now calls me Leigh Leggit as she is aware of my habit of trying to leave without paying . Always make good later ,.
    Excellent cafe unlimited tea and generous portions . (I did tell her I'd noticed her new hairstyle and when asked if it made her look younger said any younger she'd need a nappy ,. I've still got it . Please don't work out what it is !)
    Met the fast run going in as we were leaving . Time for a chat . A roundabout return .Good day thanks Chris.
    Look forward to more company next time.
    Auntie Rita's open next Sunday then closed till 24th Feb.
