dark days

Well the weather today was DARK, with occasional rain of the sort that halts conversation if you have an iron roof, which we do. I know I will get desperate for a ride before this clears, there is a cyclone bingling around in the Gulf of Carpentaria that could keep us under this thick cloud all week. With that in mind, I have pimped my knapsack:
(Fibre Flare Shorty Cycle Light Stick)
 This may induce seizures when in flashing mode, and combined with my dazzling normal rear flasher, but I am using it anyway. Ride safe everybody!

Cairns is so dark today, the cat started demanding dinner at 3.00pm. I went for a really good indoor ride yesterday (watched Taggart, recorded on our new MyStar) but today I just went to the gym and cleaned the house.

It is hard to hold wine o'clock at bay when it is dark at noon. I didn't do exercise today (well a walk, but that doesn't count) and will be keen on a run to and from work tomorrow. The forecast is way worse than todays!!

I haven't done any outdoor exercise since this rain set in. I got wet on 2 successive morning walks and decided I didn't like it.

Sorry to hear about the rain. <Hope it clears soon. Looking good. Thumbs up for making sure you are seen on the road. At least the driver can't claim he didn't see you! ;) Alberto gave me a Niteflux for my birthday. Highly recommend it. Driver's may claim they were blinded...
