Lovely day up here too. First this week really. I decided to go for a wee run and my Mrs told me that a certain route was 7 miles. More than I've run in a year but, whatever. Turns out its 8.5 :sad:

Anyway, back home now and about to pack for October's BAM tonight.

We had some big downpours around lunchtime today in Snowdonia!
I didn't mind though as I'm trying out a new one...

You are up wind across Lyme Bay from Sidmouth so you must be using up all the rain before it gets here. :-bd

It's been raining the whole day down here in London. Varies between heavy and light depending on its mood

Been out for two return trips on the cargo bike getting both kids around.

Just packed for a quick local bivy. Hoping to kip in a cheeky bird hide to keep out the rain, which is forecast for the whole night and particularly heavy between 7pm and 2am

Been quite nice in the Midlands today. Walking around in t-shirt. By the way I have a new t-shirt, did I say? :wink:

Talking about it is possibly a better option than actually living it in this instance :wink: . Looking rather playful overnight - BBC claim 'cloudy' every other forecast says 'pissing down'.
