'Here Comes The Rain' - The Cult (1985)

Today has not been a good day. Yet another day when it's been pouring down with rain here. Another week gone by without urethane meeting concrete, and it's starting to get frustrating now. So, instead of any skating I've done...
...laundry!........Tried to self-teach myself video editing using VideoPad on a PC that keeps freezing and telling me I have "very low disc space"!.........Opened the Stollen that's been sat in a cupboard since before Christmas..........And finally been driven to open a bottle of cider by the beginning of a new season of 'Dancing on Ice'! And this is without mentioning any autism related issues.

The video editing is really frustrating. I'm sure on a decent PC it's a piece of cake, but given that this PC of mine practically needs pedals to keep it going, it's not so easy. The programme keeps freezing. I have to wait to just complete a small action, and you can almost guarantee I'm gonna get a 'Not Responding' message just before I save what I've done! Grrrrrrrrrr All I can do is try to delete some old files/programmes to clear some space up (easier said than done. It freezes during that process too!). So as far as the 'Long Push' 'teaser' video I'm trying make for the Youtube channel goes...watch this space!

On a more positive note, I'm awaiting a phone call from Carol McKiernon, the head of the Families Connected charity tonight, to work out how to go about organising donations from the blog page. Looks like there will be a link to a Just Giving page soon. Hopefully before the end of this week.

I've made a start on sending e mails out to potential sponsors too. Should be a couple going out each week now, so again, watch this space, as all sponsors will be mentioned on the blog homepage and on the Facebook page.

I have a full week at work this week, but then a week off. So I intend to get at least the first two Sectors ridden by the end of that week! I'll film as much as I can, but I need to keep the pace up too, as part of the reason for doing these sectors is to gauge the time the whole ride is going to take.

Here's to sunshine and dry roads....
