Regular listeners will be fed up with the view out of my windae, but the position of the sun as it hits the horizon is a constant fascination. It’s reached the maximum stretch of its elastic and is heading downstream towards summer.
That just means a little extra light everyday. The best of winter is still to come.
But, being at home I spent the day on admin. My mobile had been switched off since the 18th of December and I hadn’t checked my business email either. Fantastic.
There’s still is some catching up to be done, but I don’t want to give myself a stitch or a blister, so I’ll finish it all tomorrow.
The weekend is occupying my thoughts most of all though. First high camp of the year, meeting up with friends and the weather is looking uncertain. Still, I’m sleeping in my own tent for the first time in ages and for some reason that’s quite exciting. Not exciting like landing the Space Shuttle or walking into a chair leg with bare feet, more akin to finding an unexpected tenner in your pocket or getting away from school early.
And the human interest story before we go the news and weather where you are, is that I stood on the bathroom scales last night and it wasn’t good. Wasn’t good at all.
