Great news from Cath: my flying suit has arrived. Can't wait to get it on.
The other bit of news is that I fitted the new starter motor to my car yesterday, so now I will be able to drive to Sywell instead of bike it, which will mean arriving warm and dry...
...and it increases the likelihood that I will arrive at all!
It'll be nice not having to waterproof everything, not having to stuff saddlebags, etc and not having to get all kitted up, worry about someone blocking the drive, getting the bike out, locking the garage, opening the security gate etc etc. I'll just get up, get dressed and get in the warm car.
Maybe I will be able to lie in until 6.30 a.m. too: Luxury!
