Three on a Thursday #160

13903173857_8a68222502_oA little late, but I think its taken that long for my fingers to defrost after this weeks cycling, as it’s been ridiculously cold for February round these parts … and yet despite all the snow, we can’t even build a proper snowman as it’s too dry. Broken Britain  I tells ya!
