Autumn is drawing in slowly. The days here are still hot (27 degrees) but the nights are chill with a nice cooling breeze in the early hours.
Each morning we awake to fog, but this has burnt off between 9 and 10 each morning. We're doing road rides and track training on the velodrome when it isn't too hot, to keep our fitness and health ticking over ready for the British 2013 track season.
With luck we'll return home with not too great a temperature difference, if Spring does finally arrive properly! Meanwhile we hear and see reports of snowdrifts at home and in Wales. Just over two weeks to go....
We've been packing and booking buses and an overnight stay before we fly, yet still it doesn't quite feel real as yet.
The Pirate is off soon to Oz to see his grandson who will be celebrating his tenth birthday next month, then when he returns here it will be All Systems Go with the final packing and farewells.
All mixed in with this, I have finished sewing the quilt, and I've signed and dated it...just need to finalise the title.....then it will be for sale.
