Took thing 1 to nursery and thing 2 to the park along with scooters. One for me, one for her.
A quick glance at the skate park got me thinking. Thing 2 delighted in sliding down the slopes and I took a deep breath and 'dropped in' on one of the scooters. Magic. Heart stopping moment but worth it. Wahey.

Might be biking this evening (if I have counted up the Brownie points properly).

laters.

    Some absolute f*cker has keyed our car. I've actually gone beyond anger and am almost in admiration of the amount of damage one scrape has done* - across the boot, filler cap, both doors, side panel and then front bumper. Right down to the metal. :evil:

    Dread to think what the damage to my bank account is going to be.

    *Not really; I want to kick them the length of our street and rip their f*cking head off.

    My daughter had hers done in our village, I assume she parked on a side street outside someones house whilst at work and they took offence.

    My dad also had a nice note on his windscreen when he parked near the train station, something like "its OK to park here but please don't get angry if I scratch all the side of your car trying to get my buggy past"

    Don't call him The Diva for nothing.
    Oh, and welcome back HD, enjoy the holiday?

    Yes thanks, more of a mini break than a holiday but nice all the same.

    Today has involved waking up in Solihull and a nice early drive to Swansea without breakfast, thanks to the hotel :evil:

    I work in Solihull and grew up in Wales so it's like you were reliving my life in reverse

    I'm knackered. Long day at work plus enthusiastic pedalling has done me in. The bike has developed an irritating clicking noise as well so I'll have to lob it into the bike shop near work on Friday.
