    'Ning

    Forecast looks ok here: not scorchio but not raining.

    Going to try that run in the park thing that happens on Saturdays, but will be hanging at the back taking it easy on the Achilles.

    Can I suggest roller skates Thistle.
    It's definitely summer here. Not a cloud in the sky. Light easterly breeze kindly conducive to pedalling plans.

    That's just asking for a broken ankle.

    40 odd miles under cloudless skies. Going to stretch, shower and indulge myself at the Café.

    Beans fell off one of the window sills upstairs.
    Apart from his pride, he is okay.

    Went for a late brekky with some mates. Need to catch up on a few jobs then a late dog walk. Probably cider later.

    Indoor bike ride this morning while it was raining, well, spin class thing on the peloton. Outdoor dog walk with mini this afternoon. Went up past V68's mum's old place, which appears to now just be a hole in the ground!

    Hassle mini to do her half term homework. Generally make the most of what feels like yet another Sunday, ahead of actual Sunday tomorrow.

    Easy 'cos there ain't no traffic 'cos there ain't no planes.
    Was she catching a bus?

    Evening folks,
    Day of pottering, wrapped the bars on my white bicycle. I'm not sure if I like it, certainly good enough for now.

    That's as exciting as my day got.

    Must say it is strange for it not to be there. There will soon be a palace in its place. Probably less weird than seeing someone else living in what was our family home for so long.

    Weird, exactly what mini said...She is very attached to her past, after I explained, she said if we were to sell this place she would rather it was demolished, than for someone else to live in it. As a terraced house, that might be difficult, but I kept my mouth shut.

    Perhaps.
    He's a little sensitive to the touch.

    But that seems like a strong sense of place and belonging. I don't see what's wring with that.
