I had a pm from a forumite saying he's coming to Edinburgh.
Who? Who? Spill the beans!  :D

Yesterday I repeatedly walked within 5 metres of David Cameron :-\

Chutney is so-christened because she is mango-coloured!  :thumbsup:


I lurve mango! :)

Perhaps not so much for the colour, but I'm feeling hungry now...

Mrs T did her first solo ride(for a long long time) yesterday, 3 miles each way to her mates and back.  The back bit was even in the dark!

I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

I have a plan to get her riding more, including some family trips, she'll have the easy bit as I'll be the one lugging the extra weight of a 4 1/2 yr old!

She did say she enjoyed it, even though her best mate + hubby-to-be fell about the floor laughing when she turned up on the bike, wearing her bike helmet :)

Got my hands on Chutney, and she rides very well looking forward to take her to the Pyrenees  \o/

Pictures to follow as soon as I have found my camera ...

The company that does the repairs & maintenance on my complex of flats is going to redo the insulation on my loft space  :thumbsup:

I've now got to clear 17 years worth of junk out of the loft in preparation  :(

No, just lots of dusty cardboard boxes, a couple of antique PC's and a load of spare bike bits!   I may need to have a "Free to good home" thread in the classifieds forum

Any one want half a roll of cheap, nasty carpet...?
