Monday errands

Today was a short one.  I parked the van up at a well known supermarket car park and went into town to bank a cheque and get Mr9 yet another pair of swim goggles-I’m sure that he has lost more pairs than I rode miles this morning…I looked around SportsDirect and tried hard not to listen to the 2 millennial shop assistants discuss their weekend and decipher their slang.  We were the only 3 people in the shop but I wasn’t offered any service so I went next door to Argos and scored a pair the electronic catalogue in half the time that I wasted in the previous shop.

I rode home mostly on off road trails to avoid traffic on the M11 roundabout. Here, last week on my way home from an errands commute from work ride,  it was strongly suggested that I am a “knob-end” by an angry bald red truck driver.  Presumably I was in his way going about my lawful business-he should look in the mirror sometime… The weather is 2 layers warm and 11C so I’ve cut this mornings ride short to get out and tidy up our small front garden.

I am now procrastinating and putting off completing a work presentation, cleaning the commute bike and the gardening before I go back to school to collect the boys this arvo.  Here’s a bicycle lean method that Jim omitted in the weekend with aforementioned garden about to be given some spring time love.

    Haha! Thanks Jim. It’s another one of those low/wind options and yes, the bike IS cool…
