Little did they know, I was actually on hands-free doing a boat repair whilst doing this interview!

A top weekend with @lynsdouglas mostly involving bikes: . • Local MTB bike ride with sushi picnic on Friday night • Night away in Ricky in Sussex including "station bike" ride to local pub • Rounded off by trailing Lyns the madwoman as she cycled 70 miles home on her "posh bike"! . Can't wait for more adventures in Ricky...still needs decking out with his conversion though! A mattress on pallets and a strapped in chest of drawers isn't so bad though!

A letter, a card, a postcard, even a note left on the kitchen table. The modern era is seeing these die out; being replaced by emails, texting, whatsapp and various forms of social media constantly updating the world of our latest move, let alone our friends and family of our latest holiday. . So, these days, when you receive a handwritten card through the post, not just any old card, but a handmade card, it's touching and so very much appreciated. Thank you so much @gabrielle.ridge for having the thought and the creativity to send this! It made my day! How good is that picture of me! . Well done @hazelbowenridge, you've brought up a good'un here! . #SendMoreMail #WriteMore #Handmade #Drawing #BeThoughtful #TheresGoodPeopleInTheWorld #CanoeSlalom

Turns out I had a bit of practice at the finals course of the European Champs to win the bronze at the weekend. Well on 4 out of 6 of the upstreams anyway, except that it was 12 years ago! Check out the finals course of the Worlds 2006 when I won silver versus the Europeans 2018!

EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP BRONZE! 🥉 . So pleased to have 3 clean runs through the racing this weekend to walk away with the bronze medal! Being able to put down a solid run in the final on such a tricky course is something to be proud of. . Big well done to @ricarda_funk for taking the top honours 🥇 and @canoe_conni for the silver 🥈. An impressive weekend for the @british.canoeing team with @rwestley being crowned European Champion in C1M and @slalom_burgess joining him on the podium in silver. That all following @mallorysfranklin taking silver yesterday in C1W and the C1W team taking the gold! 👊 . Big thank you to the wider British support who travelled out to cheer us down the course. 🇬🇧 But most of all to @lynsdouglas for taking the time out from her busy schedule to look after me! 😘
