Oh dear, once again, it's ages since I posted but I just haven't really had much to say. We've been very busy, husband had to find a home for some of his vehicles, as they were in storage in the middle of nowhere in darkest Cheshire, where even I, who know the area from cycling, would have great difficulty finding the farm.
We eventually found some lock up garages not far from home, and the vehicles were moved there this week. They will be used as parts for existing vehicles. My mind boggles, why couldn't the parts be procured when necessary rather than all this rigmarole? Don't ask, it's mens' stuff.
The last week has seen me firstly streaming with a cold and sore throat, then coughing my heart out resulting in a further sore throat. I hate coughing, it must be so annoying for others in my presence. I'm still blowing my nose and coughing at the same time.
Anyway, today I decided to get out on the bike, as it hasn't been used for a week. I just went about 5 miles out and then back. It was lovely to go out and lovely and warm, with a light breeze.
Last week I took an old lightweight ladies bike to the cycle shop in the market hall and the two young men made such a mess of it I just told them to put it together somehow and I'd take it. They hadn't a clue on the braking system, which was one of those cantilever systems and the bike is from the 80s. It wasn't safe to ride home so I left it at a lightweight shop, which I should have done in the first place, and it was done within a couple of days at a very reasonable price. I caught the bus home and did the reverse to collect it.
Sorry, no photos today, I wanted to push on with my LITTLE ride and didn't want to keep stopping and starting and getting the camera out. Until next time.
