misty

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.

very sensible plan of yours. We were up at Blaenavon yesterday; it was beautiful under snow, with occasional sun on the mountains; then over the Blorenge to Abergavenny and a snow-free lowlands and lambs in the fields looking very large for the weather, though not for the time of year. Strange old weather.

I keep thinking....should I bite the bullet and make that huge trip to see my NZ relatives - or should I stay put and let them come to me.....? Has it all been worth it for you?

RR, two words...Yes, and Yes!! It has certainly been worth it...and go and see them- especially if next Winter plays this Winter's game!!

25ish C is my favourite temperature. It's hovering around the 15 C mark here, so a little way to go yet. Lady M flew to London yesterday, and declared it to be 'not as bad as she'd imagined'. Enjoy you last two weeks.

I'm loving your blue quilt. I am looking forward to seeing it when it's finished.

Now back in internetland. So have a lot to catch up with. Looks like you've had a great jaunt out there; from what I've seen - and hear - the weather back home is far from Springy. Hopefully it'll have improved by the time you return to the principality - if that's where your heading next! ? I'm in Froggland while J's in Engerland but I go back over to Blighty next week,sadly for my brother's funeral in Surrey; it'll be a celeby thingy cos he was TV producer/sports mad guy. Might be interesting if nothing else. Hope to catch you somewhere along the line. Enjoy the packing. It's a prize pain!

Yeractual, The Pirate agrees about the pain!!
I'll be visiting Wales, but living in Scotland
