A sunny Saturday and a four mile bike ride - just up and down the quiet roads. My next door neighbour was weeding out in the lane opposite her house when I left home and I stopped to talk to her .She said "Do you realise we are OK to meet and talk out here in the lane but if we moved six feet over into the garden it wouldn't be allowed" and we both agreed the whole thing was crazy!.

I had been watching a soppy Christmas film on Saturday afternoon and at the end turned over to the BBC news channel just in time to hear that the election result in the USA had been called - phew, although lawyers were being sent out here there and everywhere to look for the "illegal/fake" votes. Hope the handover is peaceful for the sake of all my American readers, but I fear it may not be.
