This year's holidays are more mundane, but at least, for the moment, they are happening.
In fact we will be having lunch with Julia, pictured above, on Thursday, and we will be staying near Andrew, in the background above, and others soon after that.
Meanwhile, there's a bit of traveling and visiting to be done, and mobile postings will now take over, starting on Friday. I hope!
Before I go - I've just noticed that this is blog posting number 4000. Cause for some celebration later. I wonder how many words that is since October 2007? And there's lots more on topwalks.com (currently needing serious attention) from about 2000.

Just a quick posting tonight as blogging is low priority on a fine summer's day such as this one. I struck at random in my picture files and this one came up. It shows Sue and Andrew on Jenkin Crag in the rain, on 3 July 2004.
You can see my Shogun bike, and the orange bike next to Andrew's is Sue's mountain bike that hasn't been used for years. But she had it serviced last week, so it's ready to roll! Meanwhile, Andrew has recently had a hip replacement, which he's using as an excuse to hanker after an electric bike.
I wonder whether the three of us will do this route again. I described our 'biathlon trip' here. I've just enjoyed reading that again.

Before Covid took over our lives, Sarah and Mike were frequent visitors for Sunday dinner. It's well over a year since they were last in our house, and the seed that caused Sarah to mysteriously decline wine on her last visit has now morphed into eight month old Isabella. She was very well behaved, despite an inability to control her bowels or differentiate between a spoon and her fingers.
We really do hope that the current 'getting back to normal' continues, and we look forward to Isabella's next visit.
