Another sunny morning, later getting in to work. Warmer. Boys dropped off at school, I headed in via mostly off road/traffic free routes. Although I was slightly later, there was no way that I wasn’t going to make the most of this weather so took my time. I forgot my spoon so couldn’t stop for trail brekkie which meant another couple of km extra as I explored the countryside for alternative routes. A byeway here, a bridleway there. Bathed in sunshine, the newly ploughed fields glistening in the distance. Except it wasn’t sunlight but seagulls sitting on the soil watching the tractor plod it’s way up and down. Dozens of them. Gulls?! 50miles away from the coast? I watched them, motionless as they soaked up the sun. Presumably they know that the newly over turned earth has premium fodder for their diet. It must be worth the flight.

I got to work and went straight into a meeting (informal) with an excuse of being late. “I was enjoying the weather too much and lost track of time” was not the one I used but it was partly true. I witheld my trump card of a repairing a flat and used a forgotten wallet back home reason. They don’t follow me on Strava…

Another busy day over, I escaped work in the dark and joined the mayhem on the fastest route back to the van. On the busy roads. Drivers were unusually patient and courteous and by the time I made the short distance, I wanted more. That would have to wait until tomorrow…
