The sun! It seems so long since it shone. The morning was chilly with a light covering of snow on the hills, but the sun didn't give in and fought back and the day got better and better. Knitting needles and paint brushes were abandoned and I got on my bike. My knees have been creaking lately, hence no long walks, but the lane from our house is perfect for bike riding. Whether we are going to Ullapool, London or Land's End (though probably not on my bike!) the lane is where we begin our journey and in all weathers it's quite lovely - but especially lovely when the sun shines!
