Things Are Looking Up…

Today actually looked like Spring might be close.. Yesterday wasn’t bad.  After an ‘iffy’ start things brightened up considerably and the sun came out.  However I had made an early decision to repaint the entrance hall and once committed I couldn’t change my mind. Well I could have but I wouldn’t would I !! I…

It Depends How You Look At It…

Having missed out on my scheduled Tuesday ride this week I was back on schedule with a ride today.  The old favourite Ouse Valley ride but this time the other way around.  It wasn’t the ideal way round so far as the wind was concerned but it was good to get a different perspective on…
