I took some time off this Christmas to head out to Hawaii to see my Dad and family, ride my bike in the warm away from the traffic of London, and try a bit of detox so I can set off into the new year in top health. A few days of this angel like behaviour later and I find myself in A and E on Christmas eve with my front teeth broken in half, my bottom teeth broken through my lip and my legs chopped to pieces ... how?? not a rail crash, not a head on bike / car collision, rather a clumsy trip in the dark and head first plummet down some surfers basement flat stair well.

To me this simply re-assures me how easy it is to bash yourself up during the most mundane day to day tasks, so my advise to all is not worry about injury or fear slams, there's no point as you never know where they're going to get you from next. And yes I am getting new gold front teeth with my initials encrusted in diamonds..

Here's me and my dad on Christmas Eve in A and E and Christmas morning respectively...
