    Morning, I challenge this low scortchios, it was 12c out this morning. Also evidence from yesterday.



    Also discovered my waterproof jacket is very non waterproof so needs reproofing. An my bar bag (gravel bike so it's de rigueur) is also, not in anyway waterproof despite it being labelled as such. May need a new one of each 🙄

    Step, can't really recommend a decent waterproof however bar bags and saddle bags I can.
    Either ortleib or carradice, i use a carradice super c for comutting all weathers and never had a drop of water in it.

    Cheers for that, the Carradice ones look good nice flap cover too, may well order one of those this week.

    Actually just seen they are in Roy Pinks in Newport Pagnell. May take a wobble over that way.

    WFH.

    Last cat has just gone to the vet with a suspected tumour and is very likely to be put down. That's 3 from 3 since we moved house in November! We deliberately chose a cul-de-sac to protect the cats from cars as they've always lived away from traffic and now we won't have any cats.

    Wife has another neurology appointment today, private consultant as we don't seem to be getting anywhere with the NHS at the moment.

    WFW today, counting the days down to the next foreign jaunt - 52.

    Probably running tonight as I'm trailing the groups marathon plan by around three weeks and ten miles.
