    Was thinking about nipping out for a ride in the KOM weather, but it's started raining so sod that.

    Doing some cross border shopping later, hopefully the weather will keep everyone out of the town centre.

    Should have been doing the welsh 1000 today 😢

    Longish run, then cycle over to my folks and borrow a van and move lots of wood.

    Then cider

    Morning. Last day of my holiday away from idiots, may get risolled tonight. Gentle 5k later as last wks half marathon has left me a couple of toenails short. Currently dull and damp with intermittent wind. Currently stoking several colour related newspaper stories about banning anything black from history. P.S. we is all human. I suspect half the rubbish currently being spouted is because people have overdone Covid.
    ALL LIVES MATTER. Stay safe folks.

    Coffee. Then procrastination. Then more coffee perhaps. Then more pontification.

    Meh. Lawns are covered in leaves and debris.
    Mower died at the last with a few strips to go.
    Another thing to fix.

    Cold and gusting strongly here. Have a courier delivery due but as it's RoyalMail/Parcelforce don't have a specific time-slot or a 'where is the van?' GPS tracker. Hence no idea when/if the doorbell will ring. Just as well it's stay indoors weather. Rode yesterday, ride tomorrow.

    Your lucky royal mail have stopped Sat delivery around us for a bit.

    Cool n gusty here, although not sure why strifey has turned the central heating on. Good hound walking weather - which we will bs doing in a bit.

    Good news is we've got a potential buyer for our aged family mobile though a friend. Good chance to offload it before it needs a service and MOT and the inevitable next annoying and possibly expensive thing goes wrong. So may clear out the interior and give it a quick once over later.

    Well it had to happen, something to make new news. Demo,s turned nasty and covid returns, I wonder who will get the blame this time. To all the Londonites stay safe. Hopefully it will blow over but I suspect covid will rear up around all the big demo area's. It's causing ripples in the countryside as well.
