Yes Kev,  I flew today.   :af

No pictures to show - it was a rather gloomy, grey day anyway,  though no rain and a moderate breeze blowing from a 'friendly' direction. 

I believe I had the first flight of the year on Epsom Downs (unless somebody was there earlier in the day, and I don't think they were!),  and I know I had the last flight of 2018 there yesterday.  The only other day I managed to fly during the Christmas break was Christmas Eve.  Back to work tomorrow...

Had a good 3 tankfuls through my Saphir at the local gliding club.  Was a good day for it.  One of the few days in the year when nobody else was flying apart from a couple of us who took advantage of the airfield being closed.

We had a good turnout in the morning, bright sun for most of the time but cold.  Most lasted a couple of hours or so before retreating back indoors
