I Need Some Matchsticks!!

Sunday 24th July, 2011

Where's the matchsticks???   I need some to keep my eyes open.  Last night was another great night of bike riding in the Tour de France.  Cadel Evans again showed us what he is made of and after some mechanical problems with his bike, he rode hard and fought back to be within 57 seconds of the leader Andy Schlek.  They say that he has a good chance to beat Schlek tomorrow with the time trials.  Evans is a much better time trial rider.

We had to be up early yesterday morning as we had to go and pick up Taylor and then go and get Katie.  This weekend we were having both girls to stay as today we are taking them to Disney on Ice.

After picking up both girls we went and had some brunch and then did some shopping.  Came home and the girls played for a while and then decided to play on the Wii.  On Friday I got the game 'Just Dance 2".  They both had lots of fun copying the moves.  Even Tony and I had a go, well, at least we gave them some laughs.

Just as I was ready to serve up dinner, I cooked Beef Olives with vegies, Tori and Jay called in.  Tori wanted to print out some copies of her resume.  The girls loved dinner and were still raving about it tonight when we dropped them off.  Unfortunately I didn't have enough to feed us all.

Tori and Jay left soon after.  After dinner the girls again played on the Wii until I finally got them into bed around 8.45pm.  Finally Tony and I could get ourselves settled ready to watch another night of racing.

After tonight's time trials Cadel Evans is now the leader of the Tour de France.  He rides into Paris for the last leg of the Tour wearing the yellow jersey.  Only a major fall or some other disaster will keep him from winning.  He rode more than 2 minutes faster than Andy Schlek and was the second fastest rider for the day.  He is now 1 minute 38 seconds ahead of Andy Schlek.

Go Cadel!!!!   All of Australia is behind you!!!
