Morning sleeping beauties, sadly at work today. Last night's snow has left a lovely legacy around my area, the roads are slick with ice. Drive in will be interesting. Enjoy your last day off work and stay safe.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
Have a good day
Then meet some pals for fun bike stuff.
shouldn't be icy here, would be nice if yesterday's wet roads have dried out, oh, it's rained again
ride, cafe coffee and cake, laze, bubbly
perhaps order some more bubbly, also choc olivers, they're not as good as the originals, but still rather moreish
Wet and 2 degrees here so brrrrrr. Nothing really to do so have an old OCR that I resprayed in the winter to rebuild into winter bike so will do that today methinks
Not 'cos of snow but because of a frost.
Will take the toots out for a socially distanced walk.
Have completed the latest ball gadget.
Thanks given to Shorty for being my glamorous assistant.
Where did the snow come from @oxoman
Up here in the Peak District there is more grass than snow, but it hasn't stopped the Tier 4 daytrippers being out en masse, already.
An actual day off is on the cards for me, the first for ages, probably the last for even longer, so domestic goddess duties this morning before losing myself in books, the newspaper and making plans for the year ahead this afternoon.
Cook this evening and hopefully a day of doing as little as possible will have been accomplished, while keeping the Covid hordes at arms length.
Jack got impatient with me and attacked it.
I chucked him out.
Then when he was let back in, he ran upstairs quickly growling as he passed.
...and all because of a meaty stick that I would have given him had he waited.
So petulant these days.
Apologies if I was an censored to anyone recently.
Odd week or two.
Needed to give my head a wobble.
Feeling much better now.
Sunset just now...
Last slow start for the next week or so. Looks rather moist out, might go for another walk to the old dear's. Hopefully the rain will keep the phucktards indoors.

No wonder I had a few days off post Christmas.
If the UK had half the experts that post in there in reality, C19 would have been defeated before it even started.
Some people seem unable to reconcile facts with their own jaundiced BS.
Peaceful morning as Stressbag is walking the hounds again today. May as well get started on the porridge and coffee. Sadly work beckons tomorrow.
Felt Z6 2012
Red Arthur Caygill steel frame
New bibtights, also proof of lack of snow (I guess?)
Strange milestone that isn't by Beverly Brook
Found the boardwalk section but it stops over the worst of the quagmire then starts again. Presumably the bad bit rotted first so they removed it.
Had a cup of tea the tried to take the shorter route home. The underpass was a tad damp so I took a slightly longer route.
The hand rail that disappears is waist high.
Got home and the heavens opened a few minutes later so I was very lucky.
Sorry, no pictures of leg
Marin Nail Trail
Not seen that milestone, though there's also a few odd regimental memorials scattered across the common and putney heath. Also a weird horse exercising ring on the common.
I got caught in the hail while out with the dog today. Miserable.
