12TH JULY 2005
So do I cycle or do I drive/walk?
I vote for cycling if you can - quicker than walking and better than driving; could be nippy on the fingers though?
Time to invest in more drain rods - wood shed was around 10 inches under water yesterday due to the yard drain being blocked with leaves (I guess?). Dug out one end of the drain yesterday which had silted up over the years - it's an 18inch drain, so it takes some blocking!
morning.........still balck ice around this morning so be careful if cycling.....but you will probably be better there than up in the valleys.
end of the month soon........its gone quickly
What did you decide Tracey? Was a bit wet and windy this afternoon.
Oh dear Boffin. Hope your back is better to deal with all the work on the farm.
January has flown Seren
a bit bruised this morning, banged into a lamppost that shouldn't have been there! There were even more lights out this morning, and I forgot my head torch
Sneaky things these lamposts... they just love to leap out at unsuspecting runners!
Back is progressing thanks Nutty; I have 'hydrotherapy' booked for the next four weeks - no idea what joys they have in store!
Ouch Sue! Hope you are OK.
I remember years ago there was a survey in RW into what people most commonly ran into. Lamp post was very popular. I was the only respondent who had run into a bus shelter though.
hope only a little bruised sue.i now have visions of you and the lampost as in the Mr Bean scene
Oddly enough, had a very nice little run tonight. Did a couple of miles with the wind behind us which was exhilarating and then ran back in the shelter of the city and Uplands so the wind was quite manageable. Dodged the rain too which was a bonus.
had a windy wet run tonight but it was suprisingly warm..........
Sue - take care. Its easy to get carried away when running.
Tracey - well done on your run. I got a bit wet and wind swept!!
Seren - it was warm out.
Enjoy day off RK.
Boffin - good luck with the treatment.
still hoping to get out on the bike this morning
Bit stormy here yesterday - was pleased to be inside doing my VAT return, not exactly a thrilling task, but better than being out in that weather! Put the chickens away at dusk only to find the wind had literally ripped the door apart! - Not that suprprising I suppose considering I had used a reclaimed interior glass panelled door which simply could not stand up to the buffeting from the wind.
Wouldn't have minded apart from having to hang a replacement door in the wind and rain by the light of the interior barn lights and a headlamp!
Just typical how incidents like that happen at awkward times; it had been bad weather all day so it could have broken during the day and I could have dealt with it in daylight on one of my many livestock rounds.
All adds to the challenge
