    Jury is still out tbh. I fancied a nice decking area but decision not made as yet. Mrs D fancies grass but we have lots of lawn.
    Niether of us are good at visualising things eg decorating/choosing curtains etc so nothing is jumping out at us.

    I've been kite flying, should have had beans for breakfast as there wasn't a lot of wind, but it was good fun. :smile:

    It's quite breezy here in Northampton where I am for the next few hours. Forecast is for short, sharp showers later.

    If no one has nicked my wheels I'll be home about 1330hrs, so I will hopefully dodge the rain.

    At the ferry terminal drinking a Morretti Rossa. Very nice, better than the normal pale stuff. 15629282175721096859517614143896.jpg

    Had a busy day today. Took dog for a walk this morning then rode my bike to see my son in Rhyl, 11 miles with a tail wind and 11 miles back with head wind which took me 15 minutes longer, then took dog again for a run ( the dog, not me). Now just waiting for my tea as I am starving.

    Been to three Iron Age hill forts today and had a long walk along the Avon & Kennet canal. Lunch at a canal side pub. Back to the van to catch up with the Giro Rosa, TdF and British GP.

    Bummer! My friend had to cancel the video session as the microphone broke in the previous class. This lead to 45 minutes of texts, WhatsApp, Messenger to contact everyone and stop them going to the gym.

    Exhausting!!

    Had a good nap after lunch. Three hours on the allotment. Harvested +/- 100 garlic bulbs which are hanging in my woodshed to dry. Need to start thinking about sowing winter veg now.

    Sat in garden with a beer. Mrs P on her second Pimm's while watching Federer v Nadal. I've made tea four times this week - I await my meal with interest.
