Errand 9: Other
Destination: The ATM
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.
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…
