Just spent another two hours in the garden watering the damn thing. Thanks to the Drought conditions in the South= Hose pipes are banned so it is hand watering everything.
Mind you- No rain- High temperatures do not mean Good riding weather. This mornings ride had a Sea mist all over it so a Pertex top had to be worn to keeep out the cold damp. No SUN at all. Bit different to last weel with the London to Brighton. That was hot sunny and only a gentle breeze. Some of the spectators were kind and generous and had their Hoses out Giving the riders a cooling Shower. That great British Blind Eye was involved over the hose pipe ban and at times it was very welcome- Till I got to an enthusiatic family that had 3 hoses out- Signalled to them for a quich hose down- only to find all 3 on me. After that- it was just taking bottles of water over the head thankyou.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
