With Thursday's planned long run postponed till Friday I found myself at a bit of a loose end today.
We're having to stay in and around home awaiting delivery of a gas cannister for the fire. Still managed a quick 7 miles early on before the "delivery window" so at least I've had my daily fix.

Anyway.. "the devil finds work for idle hands..." and all that! For some inexplicable reason I got it in my head that I wanted to bake something... Shortbread to be specific.
Not too bad, if I say so myself.
I do like a bit of shortbread.

As well as baking, being at home has had other sources of amusement today. Next door are getting gas heating installed - a wise move indeed when you live in the middle of nowhere are are prone to electricity cuts (your only source of heating). But they have opted for the big tank at the foot of the garden approach as opposed to the "two hulkin' great orange canisters the size of WWII torpedoes chained to the wall" approach favoured by us. Anyway, it's been fun to watch their builder pootter about in his little digger as he dig, dig, digs his little trench from their house right over the road and down to the far end of their garden.
Oh how we laughed as he dug, dug, dug with his little digger ... right through the mains cable !
