It's been a tough week and I was tired when I awoke. Even worse it would be a solo ride. All of this meant I had a hard time motivating myself to get out on the bike.
But out I went, with a stop at Flower Farm on the way back. It was the thought of this treat that gave me the extra push I needed.
The route was my standard one when on my own, through Woldingham past Godstone, up the Enterdent and back to the cafe at the farm.
I had a small worry as I walked in though, no-one in the cafe. Could it be closed? But then as if by magic two people came in from the shop to serve me.
Hot drink and cake ordered I went to my regular seat by the fire.
I noticed the sign at the top of this post, I only had one cake, I don't think I could have eaten two. One delicious, huge slice was enough. It included fruit so it counts as one of my five a day.
The weather forecast is for rain tomorrow. I'll have to see if I get out.
