Is anyone else bored of Winter? I’m bored of Winter weather, I’m bored of finding new combinations of the same Winter outfits, I’m bored of blogging those same Winter outfits and I’m bored of blogging about being bored of Winter… just bored. Bored, bored,bored.
Yesterday nearly broke me once and for all… The sun came out in the morning and I thought perhaps, just maybe, Mr Weatherman had got the message and given us all a break. I put on a cute outfit (including my new suede boots and sans jacket) and stepped out, armed with my camera and a smile, for what I hoped would be a lovely day out with GB.
Then the dark clouds approached and the rain started… it started the minute we stepped out the door and just didn’t stop. The day out was ruined, my new shoes were ruined, any hope of nice sunny photographs were definitely ruined (nowhere looks good in the rain) and the smile on my face was gone. After hiding in a cosy pub waiting in hope for the rain to let up, we eventually gave up and returned home defeated, depressed and having missed ‘Dr Who’.
So you can imagine my sheer joy this morning when I awoke to the sun shining in my window and realised the weather gods had answered my prayers! This time I wasn’t taking any chances and despite the fact I had a mountain of work to do, wasn’t willing to wait for a repeat of yesterday so was up and out the door with my camera, my Pashley and a reasonably summery outfit.
I’ve been waiting for the right moment (and weather) to show you all my beautiful new Super Bike, a blue Pashley Poppy, as it would have been rude to picture it in anything other than sunshine. But finally here it is in all its glory, isn’t it a dream? You may remember as part of my birthday wishlist I was hopefully dreaming of finding a near to new Pashley for a second hand price? Well would you believe it but that actually happened!! This beaut had been ridden a mere three times before getting taken home by me and is in perfect condition.
This morning I took her (I think this Super Bike has to be a her as she is so puurrty) and although hills are still a challenge, she makes cycling a dream. She also clashes sweetly with my new hair! Little hair update: as you can see my colour is fading fast, it’s been less than a month but I’m already considering going back to the hairdressers to have it redone. If anyone has any tips for me on how to keep the colour for longer I’d love to hear from you.
Its now lunchtime and the sun is still out (hurrah) so I’m off for another day out with GB in the hope we can override yesterday’s disaster.
Hope you are all having an enjoyable Sunday in the sunshine!
