  1. Just cooking a chicken and mushroom omelette. I have a combi oven and have perfected the art of omelette cooking in it.

    Still warm and sunny here, if a bit breezy, and I had a lovely hour long cycle this afternoon - warily watching some TCUs which didn't deliver. It drizzled at lunchtime but cleared so quickly - you have to be ready for anything here!

      See any rabbits?

      Not on today's ride. I stayed low down because there were some looming TCUs and they were over the hills. I have a gorgeous family of woodpeckers in the garden though. The babes have just fledged and are pecking around the lawn and the trees. Rabbit ride tomorrow...as part of a longer ride taking in a marché artisanale I want to go to in a village I come back through.

      I was just saying to hubby how great it feels to be fit again. Today's ride felt mega when I started, but I get up those hills in much harder gears now! It feels so good - if I'm addicted then there are worse things to be addicted to! Having said that, I am having another glass of the same Merlot from the other night!!!
