December 18th – It had been a long day – into Brum early, mechanical problems with the bike and then back to Darlaston. It was wet but quite warm when I returned to Brownhills: The state of the towpath between Catshill Junction and Brownhills is now so flooded I usually hop back on the High Street at Anchor Bridge.
The pub always looks so welcoming in the dark.
This is always a long, hard week, but the weather and lack of light really are getting to me.
Come on Christmas, I need a break.
