in general...

Ink takes FAR too long to dry.....a week and some still is slightly tacky...and not just where it is a little thicker. Perhaps I'll  invest in a short course,if I can squeeze it in....there are some run not too far away

I'm not happy with the next image...possibly not quite "Me", yet....

We collected the Pirate's "fixie" frame from its mend and respray . Now we'll both be on fixed gear on the road!

Spring is gradually arriving here





 but then we get a little snow, on winds from the Arctic....

Putting out feelers for somewhere to live, asking friends in the business, trawling the ads online and looking in estate agents' windows......something will turn up...

The Pirate found that the landlady here expected us to be almost a live in handyman/gardener/employee...but knew we traveled, and worked for other people when we first rented here...they still owe us some monies  agreed for work done anyway. Favours also ever went one way in fact (although not in their eyes...)
 Moral, don't live on your landlord's doorstep!

So we'll be glad to go, now,even though we didn't want another move, yet.

Something here seems to be upsetting our health as well.  All in all,time to go!

That a fixed wheel bike or track bike not a fixie! A fixie would have yellow wheels, no brakes on the road and straight handlebars. Just saying

I don't know if it's a fit for you, but I thought of you when I saw that The National Trust is looking for a shepherd on Hafod y Lian Farm, foothills of Snowdon. It's on their facebook page yesterday or day before:)
