A quick dash...

 We went wild apple picking at midday today...ready for apple and gean vodka, apple brandy, apple jelly....
The sun was out,the views were good...and an hour later we arrived back home, just in time...
hail showers with heavy rain in between...

Kent, again

Another funeral, of a lovely sparky lady. Cousin to the Pirate.
Down the Kent lanes.

Over a thousand miles in three days, but plenty of family seen, at the funeral and otherwise.

Lucky drives both ways, with big accidents behind us.   Torrential rain at Scotch Corner, then snow in the last twenty miles.

Home safe but tired, carrying on sorting for The Move.

cyclo cross

 This shows exactly why I don't do cyclo cross...but I don't mind helping, and we occasionally help with bike changes and bike washing in the pits..(like motor racing only different!)
 We were at Lochore Meadows near Lochgelly in the Kingdom of Fife on Sunday
 obstacles, mud, wiggly bits,bumpy bits....
 all ages from fast 50+...Brendan doing well there.....yes, they are all behind you!
and all sizes....even under 8 yrs..just as enthusiastic!

moving again..positively...

We have found another place to live! Only 11miles from here, near enough and far enough!!
Ex-council 3up 3 down semi with front and back garden,rear access and room for our sheds.
Owned by a friend who wants someone living in it who'll look after we'll be property guardians really..not bad for £50 a week a £25 pw reduction instead of a £25 increase!!

 That's a view from the vegan/veggie cafe in Ayr..with a view over the river to the Black Bull,the oldest public house in Ayr, now being renovated after a fire

 The Thorn and the Spring at Chalice Well in Glastonbury. 
I refreshed my Navigator Stone that came from the potter in Paeroa...and was given some spring water for the Pirate...he is busy sorting things he should have sorted nearly 25 years ago.
We must return here together.

 I thought of a potter friend who is in Harefield Hospital getting his heart electrics sorted.  Get well soon Golly....wonder if they have beds long enough for a seven foot potter?
 and Yandles in Martock....wood heaven,plus cafe and gallery and arts and crafts supplies.......

 and this one for Soub....
