An unexpected day in the sun
Wow, this has been a roller-coaster 24 hours! Yesterday evening I somehow got sucked into one of those pointless arguments about nothing with LF, only this one escalated into the full-blown screaming kind where all reason goes out the door. So I followed in a mad rage slammed door mood into the rainy night. After walking around kicking dustbins and passing cats I finally calmed down and made my way back to the flat. Trouble was, reason hadn't returned with me so I decided to sleep in my car (huh, at my age!). Anyway, the expected fitful nights sleep ensued, waking at each night sound until the early morning light stopped me dozing, and I got out of the car to stretch. Wonders! The temperature had somehow risen to almost warm. Luckily I keep my motorcycle gear in the boot of the car as there's no room in our tiny flat, so I was soon togged up and riding off. Would you believe me if I told you I actually got too warm by about 11am, and had to unzip the jacket vents! It's like nature decided we'd suffered enough this spring; frosty on Friday morning, now Sunday is 18degC! Wherever I stopped, the cafes had dozens of bikes outside, people walking around in tee-shirts, ladies in skimpy shorts, Oh and by the way ladies, if you don't want guys looking at your cleavage, don't stun us - thick jackets and bulky sweaters to low cut tops in one day is just too much to take! Anyway, the ride today has been great, I'm resting now in a little park somewhere, drowsy in the sun. Guess I'll soon have to go home and face the music (and get a shower), but I'm going to try and keep this feeling going a bit longer. Thank you Father Sun for cheering up my shit day!
