Errand 9: Other

Destination: The ATM

Distance: 2km/1.2miles

Rationale & observations: I drove to work today with the intention of getting there early and walking to the ATM (does everyone still call it that?). I have a dinner to go to after work and the dress code is more smart casual rather than sweaty 50 something in water proofs and helmet so my Thursday commute was shelved.

I got distracted in the supermarket, had a salmon & scrambled eggs on a toasted bagel in the cafe and then noticed the time so sped off. I had a colleague’s baby shower to get to. This was my 1st ever baby shower. We played a trivia quiz about my colleague that I came last at and then I scraped to 2nd last with 5/10 in the nursery rhyme quiz (I still don’t know who the hell Jack Horner was). I ate cake and a scone with clotted cream and jam. Then I had lunch, a chicken and avocado sandwich, crisps and fruit followed by a home made Emmental, pastrami, rocket and aioli flat bread during teaching. After teaching, I ate some biscuits and got the bike out of the van which is the most convenient place to keep it, not only to conserve shed space (there are already 4 bikes in there) but for little windows of opportunity like today.

The Ford Freda, the same model as the Mazda Bongo. It is our camper but Mrs B2W refers to it as the 2nd shed

I am just back from my return trip to the ATM with money to pay for dinner and beer later. I was in proper urban commute gear, water proofs, no spd shoes, no melon protection device. It was a short journey in only light rain. Only 3 rides left with a total of 48km/29miles…
