    Inever get anything usually apart from a text message but my kids bought me a bottle of single malt I've not tried called Caol Ila from Islay. Yum yum! More of a present for the favours I've done them lately but gratefully received.

    Got a Quick-Step cap and a big bottle of Leffe from my two, and we all rode down to the local for a pub lunch - not a bad day all round.

    I got a new Campag heritage jersey in light blue. Went out in it this morning and lowered my record time for one of my regular routes by a full 6 minutes. I am putting it down to the new top. ;)
