Today we had a 'rest day' from cycling. In actual fact it turned out to be quite a busy day and not restful at all. First thing after breakfast we did some work in the garden. Paul emptied the Maris Bard potato pots and was annoyed to see that one pot had been attacked by red ants. The surface of the potatoes are all pitted but I think they will be okay to use providing we peel them.

After coffee we decided to bottle the apple wine. A staightforward process of siphoning the wine from the demi-johns into sterilised bottles, putting the corks in and then labelling. About 28 bottles in total. I'm not sure we will ever get round to drinking it all!
Then we climbed into the attic to discuss clearing the room out, decorating and turning it into a ..... gym. Paul has bought a Zwift trainer so that we can continue cycling during the winter. So much for my cosy retreat!
