You're right - it's a metaphorical scream. I wish my window did the same, I could cope with that at 3am.

Does anyone else have a double glazed window that howls like a banshee when the wind blows full on?

No windows - but I think we have either chimney or extractor vent cowls (on the conservatory) that do that as they have been doing the same thing for the last few days

Hopefully that will cease over the next few days!

First time since mid December that we've been out for a cycle ride today.

Warm(er) weather and a muddy canal bank made for a nice 22 mile ride to Leeds and back.

Shower time now then a snooze after all the fresh air..

Have I missed something? I went to bed in winter and woke up in spring, how long was I out for?!

I know it can't last so I'm making the most of this weather..

..by upgrading my bike's front suspension, and then siting in the sun for a coffee.

Next was to open the front and sides of the gazebo and let fresh air through, followed by a tidy around the bar and a drink...

..of tea!

Beer time shortly after a shower to remove the smell of hydraulic fluid.

Sun ???

Rain and wind down here. Perfect weather for stopping people coming from half way across the country to do silly things at Durdle Door during half-term week. Hope it stops for an hour or so tomorrow late afternoon/early evening so I can walk to get The Jab without getting soaked.

I, for one, would love to revisit come rain or come shine! I do, however, have more sense than that!

Who had sun and didn't share?!

So on eBay I've pulled the trigger on about 1000 slides mainly from the 1950s through to the 80s. This is going to get addictive, finding gems of images, scanning and reprocessing them and resharing but making it clear I'm not the original photographer. Got about 200 slides of a place called Orvieto in Italy that look really nice. Missed out, as I forgot about the listing, on 200 slides of architecture of florence and Tuscany. They sold for a fiver! Search job lot slides for them.

Orvieto is gorgeous. Perhaps I should get around to digitising my own slides of it...

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I can't add "my" images of it here but I'll send a link to them once they're processed for you to look at

Here's the next listing I'm debating bidding on

Just had a jab. Then a 15 minutes uninterrupted read of Witches Abroad by the late, great T. Pratchett. Everyone else was just sitting, staring and looking bored. Their loss!
