I don’t think we have seen a bit of blue sky for at least 5 days… but shhhh… tonight I could see the clouds clearing a bit. Fingers crossed!
I must admit that on Monday I ducked out of cycling, opting for the train instead. Gusty winds had picked up enough to put me off. I mentioned in the past how the combination of strong winds + aggressive drivers aren’t to my taste.
Yesterday I was cooped up indoor all day, stuck in front of the computer…. ummmm nice!
Today I went to Hulme for a great meeting with the Kindling Trust. I am looking forward to becoming more involved with some fantastic projects they are running! If you don’t know about the Kindling Trust, I’d highly recommend you visit their website.
I left the house thinking… oh it’s just drizzle, my waterproof jacket will do just fine… half way there I was pretty wet but carried on anyway (amazing how after a bit you don’t actually mind being rained on)… but at least I had the good sense of wearing clothes that would dry quickly.
I got there thoroughly soaked! It was indeed like being in a fine, constant mist shower. But I was offered a delicious coffee and within few minutes I was fine, by the time I left I was dry again.
What was I wearing? No specialised clothing, quite the opposite…
My trusty black boots, my red polka dot dress, which brightens up any grey day, and my old waterproof jacket that is still going strong 😉
Now, if Manchester wasn’t such a windy city, I may even had a go at holding an umbrella… but it will take me time to master the fine art like the Dutch cyclists!
