Two wheels good, music good too

Happy New Year!!!

It didn’t rain today. In fact the sun shone. So I got the Bandit out, gave it a little polish, checked the levels (ordered a refill for the chain oiler), checked the tyre pressures and had a little two-wheeled ‘just for fun’ run, around the immediate area.

There is still a lot of surface water out in the sticks, after the horrendous flooding we’ve had lately, so I kept to the vicinity of Witney, made a few stops (Costa, etc), but just enjoyed being on two wheels in bright sunshine, and also enjoyed riding at the speed limit, but not being in much of a hurry to be anywhere.

It was lovely.

It’s now 9pm so I’m about to head off upstairs to bed with a hot chocolate, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and a couple of Jaffa Cakes.

4.45am alarm tomorrow.

So that was my New Year’s Day. How was yours?

Oh yes, and the first show of 2013 for the music podcast This Reality Podcast ‘hit the air’ today.

Nice to know I can still remember how to operate the sliders and faders. Mind you, I’m not saying anything about the quality of the show. Just that it’s out there.

    Happy New Year to you too, ol’ boy!

    Y’right, t’was a gorgeous day yesterday and I was most keen to get out and about – not necessarily on the bike but at least out in the sunshine and fresh air… maybe doing some caching.

    But it wasn’t to be, as Mrs M was on a mad spring-clean type mission and I couldn’t just leave her – cleaning cloths in hand – and say “Right, I’m off out for a bit, see ya later”. Well, not if I was hopeful of getting my leg over at any point in January!

    And so, we stayed in doing cleaning, washing, ironing and other shit jobs until it started to get dark.

    Oh well, I’m sure the sun will shine again at some point.

    You did a Reality at last? Excellent. Is this a New Year resolution?

      You’re hoping for some legover action with the current Mrs Masher this yea (let alone this January)? Wow. I’m quietly impressed.

      Yep, I’ve finally finished recabling the studio and got a show out to celebrate. It’s all a bit ironic that I’ve gone to this much trouble as I will be moving house later this year.

      Hey ho.
