    Grey.

    Dark.

    White sky.

    Warmer at 17.9 deg in here this morning.

    No current precipitation though I noticed it was raining a bit last night.

    Morning Zeity Dr.

    S’murky out. Need to walk the dog and avoid cyclists.

    Hilariously, though there is a cycle race (sorry “sportif”) going round the lanes near me today. What they don’t know is that one of the main routes they are taking has been closed for the last 2 days due to a burst water main. The diversion for locals is along a couple of muddy, potholed tracks. Not the kind of thing you’d want to race along on your racing bike when the road is slippery and the tracks frequently have horse riders on them.

    It’s not a race though, because that would be illegal on open roads in the UK. It’s a “sportif”, where you get prizes for going faster, so completely unlike a race.

    Morning folks

    Dry and reasonably warm out, 7 degrees. Overcast, cloud seems low. The forecast suggests the sun may make an appearance around 3pm.

    Waiting for shopping to be delivered. Started my planned spring clean by moving some things about. I also need to do that pesky OU assignment.

    It was “what do you want for your birthday?”

    This year is a big birthday for me. I want something that I will treasure and use/enjoy/appreciate for years to come.

    When I turned 30 I bought a Taylor guitar. When I turned 40 I bought an engagement ring.
    Now what?

    I’d like a Rolex hulk, or Omega Dive 300, but since I’ve started wearing a Garmin Vivioactive 3, I can’t see me wearing a proper watch much.

    Help! I need ideas!
    A watch is a bit clichéd but you could always wear it for best if you don't think you'd wear it all the time. My Mum bought my Dad a lovely gold watch for his 50th that he treasures but doesn't wear much. His go-to is an excellent knock off Rolex my cousin's partner got him in Hong Kong.

    How about art? Is there an artist you particularly like that you could have a print or painting from? Some limited edition prints are worth almost as much as the original artwork, especially if they've been hand finished.

    The Moniker Art Fair or Affordable Art Fair are good places to have a look and can have some cracking pieces.

    Using [ s ] and [/s ] does it (without spaces in the brackets)

    But in certain devices it doesn’t show properly

    Bit damp and almost drizzly on the way down.

    My back is complaining about the can collections.
