Such is life!

That’s the view from the side of our house this morning, I had to get a snap on my way to the drier with the clothes. It’s really beautiful. It’s also cold, but not as cold as I thought it would be according to the forecast, not yet anyway.

I’m glad it isn’t too bad because Chris is riding to work on his new motorbike, well, his new second hand motorbike. He got one a week or two ago, what he terms a ‘workhorse’ or a ‘winter bike’, I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea at the time but it definitely was because our car has broken at the moment. It’s nothing tremendously serious, but we have to wait for the part to come. It’s coming from England and with the postal strikes, I really am not sure when it will arrive, I’m praying it is soon!

Ironically, the main reason for the bike was that we will have the jeep more and be able to go out. And we did in the week we had it, and we will again! Just not this week. So I guess I’m stuck with these views 😀 I think we’re off out for a walk in a bit.

So, yeah, prayers appreciated for Chris, who is riding backwards and forwards for half an hour or so on a motorbike every morning and evening. He loves it, but icy weather isn’t ideal, so I’m praying it holds off.

It’s also a funny thing not having any type of car for a short while and living here. We don’t really have a shop within walking distance (not with the kids anyway), I’m glad I stocked up a lot over the summer (we have a lot of soup :D), you see, my prepper tendencies are good! But some things, Chris will have to pick up until we’re sorted.

Call me soft, but I don’t really want to spend a whole day walking to the local shop and back with the kids. Although there are people round here who do that… kudos!

Bye for now.

    1. We are! But it’s also going to be freezing according to the forecast, when Chris is riding home, so I’m praying the temp holds up.
