    Perfect beer drinking conditions today, one beer for each of the MFs makes for several skinfuls.

    Sod the actual countryside, I'm going to walk the dog in my ersatz countryside 3/4 of a mile up the road. There's mud, trees, ponds, a brook, and wombles too.

    I will remember my daughter as well, she would have been 16 today, and would have loved the sunny warm day.

    Afternoon from a truly dry sunny Wales. Bike ridden early doors, dog and family walked now sat waiting for lunch to be served at old fashioned roadside cafe. Mint. Beers planned for later. Eldest started to panic abitdriving from Snowdon through to bedgelert, double parking on countryside roads not nice to drive, at least he knows how wide his car is now.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    They should bring in border controls around Snowdon and deport people doing that kind of thing. Councils keep promising to do it but won't. Best one is people just stopping in the "main" road (A road that's just wide enough for 2 cars to pass) to look at a passing train.

    Anyhow, went for a long run this morning, bumped into a few people I knew on the way and stopped for a chat which was nice. Legs dont hurt yet so i think its going to bite me tomorrow or monday.
    Gatecrashed a chaotic parkrun for a while and then been entertaining family with cafes and shops.

    Take it easy Hoppy.

    I 'as been mowstly riding my bike. Well, an hour. I meant to go flat but took a left turn instead. But my leg is still attached and everything seems to be stable. That's the first proper ride since the op.

    Then I went for lunch far. far away where the waitresses and the owner of this particular food establishment are easy on the eye and the food is good.
    I had Brie, lettuce and tomato in flat bread, toasted with side salad followed by coffee and Apple shortbread.

    I got back to news that Shorty has won a prize for colouring an Easter egg. She'll collect the prize tomorrow. Say 'Well done Shorty'.

    Bits fell off my sunroof clamps on the porker. This dodgy old Teutonic plastic :roll:

    Laters.

    Hoppy, take it easy an remember the good times.

    Pinno, got to try out the new toys for cleaning earlier. Rather impressed at the Auto Glanz bits especially the glaze which does some magic an hides scratches somehow. Shall obtain some photos tomorrow post pedal.

    BBQ went well people cider consumed dont think anyone will have food poisoning, heres hoping!

    Three bits of excellent news and a flashback to the 1980's when my dad's fiat uno had a sunroof. As far as I could tell, it just let more censored smoke out. Utterly pointless. :D

    Hoppy, as already said remember the good times. Sadly life sucks at times, anniversary of losing my dad 37yrs ago when I was only a kid.

    Thanks all. I thought I'd post a couple of sights that cheered me up today. Mini disappearing out of shot in one of them.

    I can take the sunroof off and put it in the boot. It's nice on a day like today but bloody noisy @ 70+.

    I think the blue is lovely. The review in Cyclist said they were mega - no comfort or any of that rubbish, just ultra stiff and ultra fast.

    If I can sell some stuff I could be extremely tempted as it would pay for itself. Get it down to 4/5 bikes (N1, S3, Dirk, CX, gravel) and blue Formigli.
