Since the end of our “staycation” in April, I have been trying to catch up with the resultant blog posts. At the same time, we have been out on other outings so the pile of work in progress does not seem to diminish. Like Alice in the looking-glass world, I feel as if I am running to stay on the same spot.
How ironic, then, that after a drought of courier runs, two should come along at the same time! Tomorrow we are off to Sheffield. Tigger leaves early to complete the drop and I follow a little later. We will rendezvous in Sheffield, a city we both like.
On Friday, Tigger has a mission to complete in Nottingham, but I will probably meet up with her afterwards somewhere along the line – perhaps in Leicester. We have not yet decided.
The above picture was taken on a crisp January day this year. Even though it was almost midday, the sun is still low in the sky and conditions were frosty – you can see that the people are dressed warmly – though the water is running nicely enough.
It should be warmer in Sheffield tomorrow but it is always as well to take an extra layer with you when heading north as it’s often a degree or two cooler than in London.
A few minutes ago, the doorbell rang. It was a cycle courier bringing us the all-important document for tomorrow’s run. All is now ready for the off.
Update – May 12th 2011
On the way home from Sheffield this evening, we heard that the second courier run had been cancelled.
