Well, I had a lie in and refused to make the 8.30am gathering with Mr Shields this morning; 7.30am in old time. Instead I am going to mount the trusty steed – the one I fell off recently. Let us hope I do not do the same today. The cunning plan is to cruise around Macclesfield forest, then to have a pub lunch at the Old Kin’s Head in Gurnett. I may even persuade Karl to head out.
