May update

Well, not the best start in the world. Only been going a month and already I am not keeping this up to date.

Since my last post OH and I have been on two holidays. One in Scotland, where the threatened bad weather never came and we had the most wonderful time in dazzling weather and country. We made really good time and got to all our destinations well ahead of schedule. The crazy thing was that we both thought that the reports on the route we were following were totally wrong - the bits that other people thought were great and really easy cycling, we thought were the total opposite, but the bits that others thought were really tough, we found to be easy. Strange, but that's people for you.

We have just got back from our second holiday, this time in Cornwall. What a difference. The weather was as unkind this time as it had been last time. Not a total washout, but not great either. There was definitely more rain than we were due, indeed a campsite near where we were staying was closed due to the bad weather and the poor people staying there ended up in the local village hall.

Well I suppose I am going to have to do some real work now, so it is back to work tomorrow, just in time for the weekend. Must do some gardening - if the slugs would like to leave me some! And I must do some work for the Demo I am doing next weekend in Eastbourne.

May Flowers

Well here we are in May at last and I am hopeful that we are going to be able to say goodbye to the April Showers now. OH and I are starting our, so called, holiday tonight; catching the Sleeper to Glasgow ready to start our cycling trip from Glasgow to Inverness. Are we mad? Probably!
With luck we will get some reasonable weather and clear visibility so that I can take lots of photos. Keep your fingers firmly crossed that we do not end up cycling through the hail and gales that are forecast! Catch up again when we are back this side of Hadrian's Wall.
