I just want to record that the sun came out while I was riding down to the paper shop and I had to take my hat off to maximise the feeling of it on my face. It was only for a moment and it wasn’t as if there was any actual warmth to be had but it was sunshine and thus to be cherished. In other news, I had failed to notice the hammering East wind which meant a monstrous head wind all the way home, but these things are sent to try us.
And if you’re trying to visualise me riding along, bare headed, more than half a metre from the verge (hey, there are potholes), then I recommend you stop that behaviour right now because such imagery is socially irresponsible and likely to cause harm and offence.*
