Morning Gary. Went for a walk yesterday around 8pm, it had just cooled down nicely. The fields near us were lifting with bunnies scampering around and chasing each other. Your Mabel wouldn't have known which way to go, there were so many. I'd never have one as a pet but I do love to see buns in the wild.

Made for a pleasant drive to the office today. All 97 miles of it.

It was warm enough in the office today for the AC to be on. Trouble is our facilities team never get the temperature right and we were all wearing jumpers...

I know what you mean. I've never worked in an air-conditioned office that got the temp right

Took the Transalp into Shrewsbury today to show off to the Jessops team (they asked to see it). Nice to catch up with them. Nice and easy to ride in town traffic. Rode up to Rodney's Pillar and wobbled around the gravel car park, the park isn't level so more of a challenge.
The TA has a low CofG but it's tall and a bit intimidating on sloping tricky surfaces. On the whole I'm slowly getting used to it.

Hopefully the population is on the increase again (as long as they stay out of my garden) Over the last couple of years they became very scarce around here, they seemed to disappear very quickly, I assume it was another wave of mixi, we do see the odd one now, but not yet common

Morning orgers. Early (5am - urgh) start for me today, getting ready to set off on the drive to Caerdydd and back to collect Eleri from uni. Hope the traffic's not too bad.

Morning all. Grey day today, looking like it may rain at some point.

Absolutely shattered today after the drive to Caerdydd and back. Roadworks, detours, and bloody 35mph pensioner kn06heads in 135mph vehicles.

You have my sympathy. I drove down to llyn mygmnil on Thursday. Same experience as you plus twits in caravans holding everyone up. It never occurs to them to pull over and l let the queue pass.

It's all the more frustrating being in a car and stuck behind idiots like that, when you know that if you were on your bike you'd be gone.
