Hello there and welcome to another PoCoLo - thanks for all the birthday wishes last week, I had a fab birthday weekend and am still hanging on to the croaky voice from that cold. I'm hoping that the remnants of my cold will go soon as we're off to France for a bit of cycling. I also hope the weather sorts itself out so when I start to pack our four panniers I pack the right sort of clothes.
I really want to pack shorts - and I will - but the big call is how many cold(er) weather gear I need to pack. MOH bought me a North Face shell jacket in purple, lilac and mustard (it looks better than it sounds) and that'll be coming with me, along with my strappy-but-flat sandals. Let's hope I get to wear the jacket a lot less than the sandals.
I guess one good thing about my thyroid being overactive again is that it's rare for me to feel the cold! Every positive and all that...
Next week Jayne from Sticky Mud and Belly Laughs will be joining Morgan as co-host while I'm potentially wifi-less as I cycle along the banks of the Loire with a camera in one hand. And expect chateaux overload!
And if you're wondering about the significance of this beautiful succulent, there is none other than I just love this image. And succulents too. It's another from Unsplash which is a fab resource for some stunning photographs.
