St Patrick Day Stress Relief

Happy Paddy’s Day to you all. I had my first cycle of the year this morning in the company of ‘The Cycling Belles’. I loved every moment, great fun, plenty of fresh air and exercise! We cycled past all the people getting ready to take part in today’s parade. It makes me very proud to live here. There was creativity in abundance. May I salute all those responsible. Many congrats! Ursula
