    Morning
    Very gloomy here got to wait in for the shopping to be delivered.An amble will be on the cards later, either across to Lastingham or along the river Dove from Lowna bridge. Even later will be the local history society meeting at the pub, as the missus is dead keen to find out the history of our cottage.

    Enjoy your hols SG.
    Sun? What sun? Grey, breezy and damp under foot.
    Pah!
    Another meandering day stretches before me, hopefully featuring bike. What to wear though. Do I dress for said grey dismal weather or do I believe the weatherman that God will switch the sun on later? Decisions, decisions.

    pleasant out, wind has dropped and not as cold as yesterday, pain au choc and a couple of coffees

    Morning, very tired today so I've a feeling it's going to drag plus side it should be nice out as its sunny already
  • Weather is set fair, may ride bike and eat cake
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    Morning folks,
    The sky is a strange blue colour down here, I think some of the local scrotes have stolen the clouds.
    Had a very pleasant, if rather slow, wobble in this morning. Unfortunately I suspect it will be another busy day dealing with idiots. Later is pub as it's Wednesday, unfortunately our usual venue has a quiz tonight and the second choice is shut. Might have to venture further afield.

    Damp start, but feels like it could warm up finally.

    Glad life is normal for V68 and enjoy the hols SG, don't do anything untoward...

    Two firsts for the year:

    Washing on the line
    Hayfever tablet.

    May add a ride in shorts to the list.

    Feels like summer here, so it's work then lunch ride to the coast and back. Maybe bin off work if it's too nice and stay out on the bike.

    Short sleeves will be out along with the blindingly white legs!!

    Cold again here, me thinks the heatwave is taking the Michael.

    Flooring man is at HD towers today so things might stop looking like a cess pit shortly.

    Unless he did his apprenticeship with your plumber... :D

    Flat busy day investigating cause of GMFU by data management minions. Now sorted, and a promise extracted that it won't be repeated on pain of disembowelment with a letter opener.

    Out to nearby pub for dinner. Good wine, friendly service but sh!t food. Oh well.

    I did one of those yesterday.

    Today is the day we get official conformation of pay rises for the non-management grades so I'm having fun playing Santa Claus with the minions.

    Apart from that, glorious day down in The Big Smoke. 'T1t Wednesday' seems to have arrived - that being the day when temperatures rise to that magical level where women decide to wear skimpy gear when getting dressed in the morning. I knew it was worth living down here for some reason or other.

    Good day all. Slightly busy start due to bill gates caused cuck up. Hopefully sorted. Beer laters and maybe a run. Currently blue skys and 21 degrees here after damp start. Enjoy
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Weather is sweet, make you want to move your dancing feet. Lift our heads and give Jah praises.

    Commonwealth Heads of Government all over the auction round here, meaning road closures and general traffic clogginess caused by old Bill stopping traffic and whistling so VIPs can whoosh through unhindered in their armoured SUVs.

    I shed the arm warmers mid ride this morning, accomplished while doing "look mum no hands" and overtaking the hordes of fair weather commuters. I don't think I will even put them on whilst on the way home. The base layer might also be superfluous, so just shorts and jersey!

    I hope to god their paths have never met, a bit like Ghostbusters really as that meeting of minds might cause mine to explode.

    Warmish if windy ride this morning. The dangling pieces of string where my legs should be were on display to all and sundry.
    Highlight was stopping to speak to a fellow rider who had stopped to feed his sandwich to the chub in the River Penk when I was surprised by the sight of a kingfisher doing his thing. First one I've ever seen.

    Got out for an hour around lunchtime - beautiful day and great to be riding the good bike in shorts.

    Amble ambled lots of wild daffodils,bucolic streams and Curlews calling. History meeting cancelled as the missus fancied sitting on the patio in the sun drinking wine instead.
    Gutted. :D

    How much did the wine cost? Important that we know as a benchmark has been set.

    Not sure as it came with shopping delivery this morning that the missus did on line. Went down well,could fancy another bottle though.

    Same ride was tinged with a bit of sadness. A duck was looking forlornly at her mate who had been splattered on the road. :(

    I have stopped the van in the road sideways on more than one occasion to allow ducks and ducklings to cross the road.
    On one other occasion, I picked a hedgehog up (in my jumper) and led it to safety and a car driver passed me as I was getting back into my car and tapped his head with his finger at me!

    people who can't be bothered to slow down/avoid animals in road deserve the same treatment

    last week i thought "ducks!!!" and went hugely wide on the bike to avoid a column of ducks taking a walk across the road to horse guards
