Time Flies

6 Days off flies past, but I can guarantee that the next 5 at work will not reciprocate.

The early morning frosts have not let up yet, breathing in ice cold air first thing hurts the throat and the best way to describe it is ‘ like having ice cream head ‘ after the cycle ride to the station.

Cold Start To My Ride
I have been musing over some ideas with a matronally [ is there such a word ? ] figure about doing some study to improve my chances of emigration.It’s been ages since I have undertaken any proper sort of study and I am quire hesitant, this normally start of well, with the initial novelty factor and things get ‘in the way’.So I have to look for something that fills all the following

1. Is stimulating

2. Is realistically attainable

3. Is beneficial

4. I can do distant learning

5. I can fit around my employment

6. I can afford, adult education is not cheap

Not a lot to ask then.

To try and get the head space right I’ve started today in some deep meditative brain sync stuff , to see if that helps in any way.

I know I’ve been slack with a distinct lack of colour on the blog of late but I did actually take the camera out the other day and took some journalistic type shots of a piece of architecture I found in my local woodland, only to be accosted by some security person , whose acne was healing up quite nicely.

When Is A Tree Not A Tree ?
Informing me no less that it was a secure area and that I shouldn’t be taking photographs in that area.I could have enquired as to when that had come into play and under what legislative powers, especially as I was not on private property, in which case it would only have been a case of accidental civil trespass.It might have been something to do with the fact that I was on the X and recovered some property from the woods that had been discarded that could utilised at Chez Zebra, rather than damaging the native flora and fauna in it’s fly tipped earlier position.The picture when posted will better illustrate.

Long Load

It was definitely one of longer loads and had turned a few heads on other cyclists and ramblers on my route rightly enough and I had managed to pass out some X propaganda to anyone that enquired.

Had the security guard just wanted to be nosey ?

I am heading into ‘The Smoke’ now, partaking in a fresh large coffee from a wonderful new machine at the station, not one of those that normally provides some sort of warm liquid if you punch in a selection of numbers, but a proper fresh ground coffee, a tad more expensive but with this cold weather it is very warmly [ pardon the pun ] received.

I haven’t worked out a way of securing a thermal mug to my commuter bike otherwise I would have made my own.

0557 hrs

I am hoping that work will have made a decision about my leave when I get in, I could and should be elsewhere at this time of year and if they had sorted it I could have been away from the frosty UK from Valentines Day / Last Day Of Scallop Fishing.

Who can tell ?

Next stop home of cricket , so better go get ready.


0603 hrs

So where was I ?
Well work has finally given me my leave so as of tomorrow I will be on leave until the 7th of April. Hooray
