Thanks for the encouragement.
I've bought a crash helmet, though it makes me look like a WW2 GI! Wilko's had loads of lovely colourful kids' helmets - Thomas the Tank, Star Wars, Peppa Pig etc, but the only one for adults was black! I'm thinking of painting a skull and crossbones on the back in fluorescent paint, or maybe speed stripes... You mentioned wobbling, well I'm getting better and can take a bend now without the bike going one way and me the other haha!
The recent other wobble with the benefits suspension, well, I can't do owt about it so I'm sticking to the mindfulness, tai chi, exercise etc. (Hey, there's a parallel I just got - bikes + wobble, suspension & benefits - wobble, suspension. Nice one!)
I'm off down the jobcentre tomorrow and see what's afoot there - the computers are free to use for jobsearching. The work experience is going well - admin, though it feels like I've been chucked in at the deep end - from having lots of leisure time to being busy every day. If I go careful I think things are going to be just fine. Hopefully!
Anyway, as we're in The Garden, the bulbs are going in on Sunday and seeds (flowers/herbs) on Saturday.
Hope to meet you over the hedge soon, I'll put t'kettle on x
Are you sleeping any better?
