Well leg_iron thank you for your explanation I may even give it a go if I can find somewhere local to try it out.

I had a friend who was on the same degree course as me a few years ago he was severely injured in a car accident on Dartmoor whitch left him immobilized for about 18 months he made a list of things he had never done and once back on his feet he set about doing them.

I may make a list myself and put this as item one.

The weather wasnt brilliant this morning.  It started off ok but it did rain a couple of times briefly but just before 12 the heavens opened & we all packed up.  I felt sorry for the people who had started their beginners course this morning as they didnt get much shooting time.  Thats the risk of doing outdoor sports in the UK.

It was fine earlier but has clouded over somewhat and a breeze has got up. Still dry so far. Not too bad at the moment.

I'm about to light the fire too.  It has turned quite chilly and the wind is still up.

Cool and breezy here today, with heavy showers and some sunshine.

Best of luck with your archery competition, Leg Iron. A mate of mine used to be in the local civil service team. She says it's great for upper body strength.

At the moment its what they called in the exposure instructions with rolls of film (remember those?) 'cloudy bright'. A little breezy but not too cold when I went out to the bins just now. Rain is forecast in a couple of hours and it looks likely.

Overcast and quite breezy. Pleasant though.

Just started drizzling. 14:00 rather than 13:00 as forecast but pretty accurate.

The fire is alight and I have a blanket over my knees.  The bats are flying around outside and getting buffeted by the wind.  Not a nice evening.

Weak sun this morning with a stiff breeze. Local weather station reports 12C but feels colder due to chilly wind.

Can't be that cold because my lawn is growing like mad. Almost fast enough to see. Must get out and mow it but chill puts me off. Truthfully it doesn't take much to put me off gardening.
