Picked bike up this evening. I shall start to cycle to work. The bike has lived in a cellar for 6 years; before that it lived in a garage; and before that it was used, for a year or so. The Local Bike Shop were all for replacing it as it must be 20 years old. I, however, was all for getting it back on the road. And now it is. Which is a good thing.

“I did, yes.”

It was the culmination of another painful week for Marie, who was forced to marked the anniversary of her husband of ten years leaving her for another man.
