Causing a stir

I caused a stir in the household last night. I had to buy a new tyre for my bike, and bought a new tube also (luckily, as it happens) i had fitted everything and pumped the tube up, at about 60Psi, I realised that the tyre hadn’t seated correctly, and was off the wheel rim. I touched the valve to deflate the tube, and it went bang, quite loudly. My ears rang for about 5 minutes. Of course, everybody came out to ask “what was that’? No harm done, and the second tube came in to play. All seems ok, this mornings ride will be the test. As it happens, the bike is in for its first (free) servicing on Saturday, so they can check it out.

My first morning walk for 5 days, the difference in the sky is striking. The last two photos show the sky on Thursday morning, and the sky this morning. As time moves on so things change, of what that means is I am on the verge of loosing the morning chorus, which when it is in full throat is lovely. There is a big flock of starlings that roosts under the Portsmouth Harbour railway station. I think they start murmuring at about 4pm. I’ll have to see if I can’t get down there for that on the weekend.

Although the temp was 7-8C, the breeze gusting to 6 knots had a real chill to it, so I appreciated being wrapped up. Rain was threatening, but it looks like I’ll be ok for the ride to work.

Seriously, who likes getting up from a nice warm bed into a cold room at a ridiculous hour? On the other hand, I do enjoy the walk, and I particularly enjoy a walk on a frosty morning, which is exactly what is promised by the tv meteorologists. Should be interesting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
