Please keep interesting weather and chilly fronts to your side of the country. Ever since I gave my wife the gazebo she wanted for her birthday, the weather has ensured that it has stayed in its original packaging.

Interesting drive. Roads are busy, service stations are packed and there's a few special drivers about .

Main rains due later tonight.

Slight urge to buy a FF camera building.....

Welcome back. Cycling by choice or because someone has told you that they need the car more than you do?

That can add up to a substantial saving and keep you fit. Not an option for me.

Welcome back.

Neither did my eldest lad. He's lived in city centers for the last eight years, Paris, Valletta and now Lisbon.

Neither did I. Then I got married. A year or so later I was told to learn to drive because aparently new mothers don't drive themselves home from maternity hospitals.

I can confirm that it would save a lot of money, offloading one of the cars.
Iíve noticed the petrol savings already...
Pre-Cov I was around 260-290 miles a week.
During Cov was around 180-200 miles a week

I do want a new bike now though, so thatíll make a nice dent in whatever Iím looking at spending

When I worked in a local authority architectsí department we had available an office bike (no sniggers please!) for site visits; imagine how well that went down when the builder turned up in his Jag. Anyhow for a short while we had a very glamorous lady architect who was always dressed like a fashion model so when she arrived on site in her Alfa Romeo I remember the whole site came to a standstill!
