New bike

without comments

After looking around and trying out several bikes over the last few months, I eventually bought a new bike today. I want to start cycling to work but never felt comfortable on my mountain bike and didn’t fancy trying to make it up the rather steep hills on the old three gear shopper I used to cycle to school on some 16 years ago! So, I made the decision to go for the bike I liked best in Thomas’s Cycle Revolution, as they were extremely helpful when I had been in previously and are only a little over half a mile from home. After trying just two more bikes, I bought this Giant Expression LX:

Jane's new bike

I really enjoyed riding it home, which rather sadly was probably my longest bike journey since I left sixth form in 1990. I’m now looking forward to building up my confidence on a bike again and getting fit cycling to work. I somehow doubt I’ll actually use all 24 gears, but I’m sure I’ll be needing quite a few in order to stop me running out of puff up those hills!

So that’s where they’ve been hiding the eggs

with one comment

We haven’t been getting many eggs lately, and none at all from Ginger (not unusual) or Ivy. Last time that happened, we eventually found a clutch of nine under a hedge, but I’ve been looking around in vain this time.

Until this afternoon, that is, when I looked a bit closer under a bush, and lo and behold:

Hidden eggs

I can’t help thinking there are some more still waiting to be found.

Daft chickens

There’s only so much value in an automatic door closer when you have to go out every night and lift three of them off the roof of their house and put them inside:
