Another miserable weather week

Again, the weather has been poor for cycling but we did get out a couple of times during the early part of the week totalling 28.5 miles but then it deteriorated again. They were only rides locally and in the dark and wet.

I took this photo as I like the way the lights shine on the water.

We were also gifted a treadmill, so I have been using that instead of cycling and I think it will be good to move muscles in a different way.


not a flattering photo but DS1 took on another early morning and yes I have a big behind heehee!

You will probably be aware that we had a blue moon this Wednesday. DS1 went out and got these two photos that I would like to share. I tried later in the evening but my photo was rubbish.




I have been continuing to stitch away and the quilt I was working on last week is almost finished. I am hand sewing the binding down .

I also took a little time to play with rulers for quilting. Patsy Thompson, a well known USA quilter, has been running a free on-line blog  posting to guide people with a bit of experience through. I came to it late so did lessons 1 and 2 yesterday and here is the result.

The lowest triangle was me doing my own thing but you get the idea. More to follow I hope.

Sorry this is a short post  but there’s not much to write about.

cycling this week 28.5  and YTD 153.3 miles.


  1. For once I’ve beaten your weekly mileage! Only by about 6 miles or so though…… we had some decent weather this week so that helped. Had a nice ride of 25 miles plus a shorter one.

    • well done you. Are you still doing your coffeeneuring?

      • No, that finished in November. I believe there’s an “errandoneuring” challenge coming up though…….

      • you will be pleased to hear I rode 12.8 miles today. how about you lass

  2. You have my sympathy as far as the weather goes. I got some good weather and promptly fell off so at least you have done better than me.
