    Already carry a full set of OS maps for any area we visit.;)
    I prefer using a sat nav, but not using it blindly, as it makes life easier.

    Hello! Looking like a great day here. One of the guys collecting me at 10.30 to meet up with the ride at the cafe for breakfast. The young man is 36 years younger than me - great credit to him for thinking of this.

    Turbo next and gardening when I get back.

    I'm seriously thinking about getting back on my bike this week. I know I'm ready and this morning's cafe offer may just prove to be the push I need.

    Having a cup of tea, Am waiting for our new lawn to arrive, then all i have to do is lay it. was going to go artificial, but decided to go with the real thing, it's better for the birds and insects. will also give me an extra job to do every now and then, thats the only down side, i don't need anymore jobs.:okay:

    Yes, its looking good, but unfortunately my ride oportunities aren't great, this mornings ride is off, my Good Lady is down the doctors for tests this morning and the Comunity nurse is here this afternoon, hoping to ride tomorrow. Thursday we are out with the other wrinklies, coach trip to Stratford Upon Avon, and a fish and chip supper so no ride, looking at Saturday if I can.

    Probably the best decision. A guy near here put artificial down about 3 years ago.. site was well prepared and it looked nice for a while but I see weeds popping up through it now and it is looking a bit of a mess.
