Wont we all.

Kt is not going to make it I'm afraid. She has had a stinking cold for about three weeks, and is only just getting over it, poor soul.

At least she showed willing and bought a bike, that's more than No1 son managed :roll:

Bikes all bagged up and ready for the morning, I thought better of loading it into the car tonight, the last thing I want is a £100 window in the car busted for the sake of a £20 bike :!:

Unfortunately I'm going to have to give tomorrow a miss as I realised that I am not strong enough to lift my newly acquired bike, let alone ride it anywhere...

That and I have laryngitis and my lungs have forgotten how breathing works.

Have a really good time and take lots of photos!
