I wasn’t feeling great this morning when I woke and there was a hint of light rain in the forecast last night. It was misty and murky and I’d had a broken 5hr sleep but with the temp of 8°C at 0600, there was no way that I was gonna miss out after last week’s below zero icy misery.
I only wore 2 layers under my winter jacket and the autumn gloves + cotton cap under the lid kept me toasty warm. Nearly too toasty warm. After last week, I’ll take that.
In the permagrey and permawet, “sunrise” happened about 40min after I left home. It was properly daylight when I arrived at work. I’ll take that.
The BlackCaps handed India their heaviest T20i defeat. After being outplayed all series, I will definitely take that.
The ride home was slightly cooler. Not nearly too toasty but just right with 3 layers. The mild SW breeze behind nudged me home on the short route. While the immediate forecast is for a return to cold, it won’t be like last week (at least for a while anyway). Last year it was March by the time I had ridden 9 commutes to work.
I will very definitely take all of that.
