The moment I saw my bike today at the shop, I was just like this little guy:
What I didn't tell you was that the blue bike I showed on my blog the other day was my original pick - by Tuesday I had phoned the bike shop in a panic asking if I could change my order for a baby blue bike with more gears. They said they would set both up for me so that I could choose (obviously they worked me out early on to be a complete flake). So today I chose the baby blue. Because it's pretty.
I love the basket - it's very 'Michelle'. I'm imagining piling my new crochet bag and a rug in the basket, taking off for Corroboree Park and sitting up against a tree crocheting and listening to the magpies. Which I will do the moment my backside stops aching - it's been ten years since I rode and I may have overdone it a bit today.
I crocheting news, I have almost finished the Boteh scarf, and I am finishing off the half double crochet edging around the scarf. Hopefully there shall be photos tomorrow if I can finish it and steam block it. I'm also hoping to get the bulk of the Pleated Bag done tomorrow - I'm getting anxious to start using it as my new crochet bag!
Spring seems to have hit us with full force. Yesterday evening J and I walked around Civic and Braddon for the CLAW Crawl, and even at 6.30 I was wearing only a thin cardy. Today was another warm one spent in a t-shirt and cords, and our washing dried in only a couple of hours.
I'm waiting for the frosts to come back. Surely they haven't left us already?
