I woke quite a few times last night, which is very unusual for me. I usually just go out like a light when my head hits the pillow, but not last night.
I was kept awake by the howling wind and the sound of things being blown around in the garden. The rabbits were snug in their houses, but you can't help worrying about the little guys can you?
As morning approached there was little let up outside and I began to dread the ride to work. Finally the time came and I had to dump my slothful ass into the saddle and get peddling. It was not nice. The first trip after 2 weeks of doing as little as possible is always a shock to the system but having to battle against wind and rain that was hard to walk into, never mind CYCLE into was something else!
But I made it, of course, happy to get into some clean, dry clothes for the day's work.
The weather got even worse as the morning went on - here is a video of some of it:
Glad I wasn't out in THAT lot!
Things have improved this afternoon, though, and we now have clearish skies and the trees have stopped thrashing around too, so hopefully the return journey won't be as bad.
Hope your first day back was OK! Assuming that today WAS your first day back, of course...
