Time to stretch the legs again so me and Jane went for a hike over to Pity Me Tea Barn. Three miles later we crossed the door and had a cuppa and cake. We took a slightly shorter route on the way back so covered just under 6 miles in total. It was windy, dry and warm. Most of the tracks were dry apart from the ones around the perimeter of the farmers fields and crossing the fields. We only seen another couple of people the whole time we were out but the tea barn was packed and took them 25 minutes to serve us! Anyway Merry Christmas to all the readers and hope the big day goes well. Below are a few snaps, enjoy and hopefully more soon -

Well done to all involved.
Also apologies for the lack of updates but I have not been out on the bike as I am still not feeling well and been busy with vehicle problems -
My Peugeot Partner van 12000 miles and less than 2 years old conked out - Fuel filter failed due to petrol companies trying to save too many pennies and not putting enough winter additive in their diesel. Long storey cut short Peugeot would not pay for the repair or contribute to the lab or part.
Prices varied from £125, £105 and £85 for the same job from dealers. Part only just under £50. Aftermarket filter around £21 and a Peugeot filter from Ebay just over £20. So I bought one off ebay and fitted it myself as the part is not covered under warranty! took 10-15mins from start to finish and the van is back on the road.
Angus's second car was due for an mot this week and passed.
I serviced my mums Matiz car and rear brakes were sticking. Two new pistons required and full clean down /overhaul of rear drums.
Then onto my sisters Agila - same again two new pistons, one was seized solid. Next up is there two Mot's, oh happy days.
And some reading material landed this week for over Crimbo / New Year.
Talking of that Fresh Goods Sunday is having a festive break and will return back after the New Year.
