    Morning, much colder here in that northerly wind, the heavens have just opened up as well, what a lovely start to the day.
    Hope it improves later
    Have a good day

    Work work day, a wrap up warm one, currently dry, hope it stays that way. And going to work and being outside and all that means I won't be on t'internet so don't have to avoid the Waynes. Yay! 👍

    Avoided the rain during the hounds walk.

    Might go out on the fun bike later, cycling 4 days on the bounce, who would have thought it.

    Last attempt to impress the ban master.........

    It's a very nice photo.

    elbow moving in to his new house reminds me we're awaiting news on our offer on a new place. Bit of a project, could be a really good opportunity!

    And this is why I put up with work stress, is what I keep reminding myself.

    I think any creature would be po faced if it was going into a stew.
    How can they spell Basso wrong? And well done by the way.

    Moaning all.

    Yesterday I got a call asking if they could shift my MOT slot to 11 as the inspectorate was visiting.
    So today:
    Put bike in car (avoids Public Transport)
    Take car to MOT station. Arrive 10.54.
    Ride around in a 7 mile loop past the MOT station.
    Lap 1: Car still in car park.
    Lap 2: Car still in car park.
    Lap 3: Car still in car park.
    Lap 4: Cycle to Harry's stable which extends the ride. Harry's not in.
    Feed horses some of the apples donated by me.
    Ride back to MOT station.
    Car still in... car park..

    Go to reception.
    "Sorry we could do your MOT as the inspectorate took longer than expected".
    Put bike in car.
    Drive home.
    Have shower, eat.
    Pick up girls.

    Good news, hope the rest of the process goes smoothly then.
    I got over my sulk and took a picture on the way home of a couple of stags fighting.

    Admittedly I couldn't see them either, but I could hear them and they were somewhere in that direction.

    I haven't actually been outside today so if the rule is outdoorsy pics then I'll have to pass. Or can it be anything?

    Think I'll drink cider now.

    Thank you! And this photo reminds me of the "Bridlington at Night" postcards.
