Following that experience in the early week, I have yet to return to cycling. I rode a meer 25 miles and felt dreadful by the end. The last few days, I cracked on with the decorating. The hall is half done and you can see where it’s going.
Once more, stripping off wallpaper revealed loose plaster; this time, right next to the front door.
The underlying bricks have a fault, there in a crack in the mortar which now needs attention from outside. I wonder whether this fault it caused by slamming the front door. The door is a tight fit in the frame this winter. Perhaps it does this every winter when it’s damp.
Another item for the to-do list; plane the door down to give clearance.
Later, I’ll ride. The legs are fizzing again.
