This evening was very productive, but unfortunately not in the kitchen. We bought some new folding bike hooks last week and put them up today. This was much harder than it sounds though, as our concrete walls seem almost impossible to drill through – if anyone thinks I’m whinging, please feel free to try and drill our third bike hook in! (We’re saving it for later, as we only needed two and also needed food.)
But, we think they are great. The hooks fold to one side as well, so they take up less space than if they were sticking straight out. We’ll have our bikes up all the time and will have the third hook (once it’s up) for any guests we have with bikes (like each time my dad comes 😀 ).
As you can see, Sofi’s bike is getting more and more pink in the run up to us going to Spain. I will change the handlebar tape to some white tape tomorrow, and then she’ll be all set 😀
We made a delicious refried bean dish on Sunday, and an incredible Asian dish with sticky tofu (recipe coming soon) on Monday. Yesterday we were both at work late for different meetings, so got food there, and today we had no energy after all the drilling and went for takeaway pizza that we had in front of Masterchef Sweden.
We’re both planning on doing a tough interval session on the turbo trainer/rollers tomorrow, and then on Friday we’ll do a gentle session in preparation for next week. We can’t wait to get to Spain and experience a bit of warmth – we’ve had more snow this week. Not much, but it has settled. (In other parts of Sweden, they have had record amounts of snow – Luleå had 113 cm of snow in one day!)
We hope you all have a good week 🙂
