I have got you a book to help you with gardening, Jim. I think you will enjoy it (the book, if not the gardening, that is).

Thanks James :) I only grow rhubarb and strawberries in my garden and I seem quite good at that...

I'm good at cooking rhubarb and making jam out of my strawberries too ;)

I did :) Looking forward to seeing you too Alasdair. Not sure what time I will be there as I have a lot to do here in the morning having been away a week... I should be there well before lunchtime though...

And I did! Especially up the hills :)

This was the ride:

And this was me, rather wet after being caught in two storms, at the finish :)

The week away was brilliant and did me a world of good. Today was the icing on the cake..

Not a bad drive home either but got caught in two downpours of biblical proportions...

Definitely hoping to put in an appearance tomorrow, though not entirely sure exactly when at present as the weekend is being on where I'm having to keep my plans rather fluid.

Nice to know I'm not the only one that storm soaked...was out with the dog when it arrived!

Don't think it's going to happen - have only just got back into the house from an earlier trip out.

Had been banking on a quiet day, however that hasn't materialised!

That was a shame Zel :( I've just go back from what was a cracking Chevrons Rally...

Really enjoyed it... Wonderful to meet up with lots of old friends and have a good natter. Shame it's the last of the season.

I bid Gabriel a fond farewell and she's now en-route to Scotland. Davie found her good on a test drive which I insisted upon before we sealed the deal ;)

This is my last picture of her...

The bike ride home was good. I dodged all the showers - just :)

Sorry to have missed this, I was planning on coming down on Saturday but the car developed a leak I was unable to locate.
Just got home from a birthday part on Teesside and for the last ten miles no power steering although the suspension is as yet unaffected.
LDS level very low :)
