Back from my Tesco is decidedly cold, wet and very windy......not nice at all.

My cycle ride this morning was postponed due to the weather, when I nipped out in the car to get fuel I took a diversion to Purley Chase lane and had a walk amongst the bluebells.

Wet, cold and windy. I have renewed my house and contents insurance with the Halifax this year, £25 cheaper than Rias for same cover. ^_^
I am now waiting for the TV man to come as Mrs G wants the tv moved to the other side of the wall to avoid window reflection on the screen. That means having another tv socket put in. Shouldn't be expensive I hope. :rolleyes:
I did a bit of vacuuming and floor sweeping and now making a coffee before sitting down again and decide what to do next. Molly been for a walk and too early for another yet, beside tv man is due soon.
Might give one of my brothers a video call too to keep me updated on what is happening in France. :hello:

We have 2 seasons....cold and windy or road construction. Chance of precip today but in an hour or so I will be off to the libray and a paper for Mrs 12 who will have a lung tap on Friday and a cat scan on Monday. This afternoon I will do a little outsde work and my neighbor and I shall go to the coffee shop and chew the fat.
Be safe and well...

I think you have your dates wrong. Real summer doesn't start till June 21st so still time for the weather to readjust. :okay:
I have some good news about the weather - winter 2020/2021 will soon be over and spring 2021 will start.

The bad news is that spring will last 14 days and be followed by a 17 day summer. Winter 2021/2022 will start early this year - in June!

You put me to shame I walked to the chemist and back .9 of a mile :sad:
I did just a bit more than that to get my Metro and a few things from Aldi - roughly 1 km each way or about 1.3 miles total.

I was thinking that I might get the chance to do a ride later but I don't think the rain will stop for long and it is very windy here as well; not a nice combination, especially on a bike without mudguards. My CAADX does have mudguards but I haven't got round to having the fork replaced yet and don't want to risk riding it. (It would probably be safe but knowing that at least 8 people have been seriously injured and 1 killed puts me off taking the chance!)

I need to get to work building my Devon road bike. It is only around 7 weeks until I go down there and the bike is currently a brakeless, singlespeed turbo trainer machine! I have many of the parts that I need but I need to get hold of a rear derailleur for it and probably a new stem and handlebar. Also, bar tape, cables, etc.
