Taking The New Puppy For a Walk
Confession time: I’ve bought a new bike - codename: "New Puppy". Well, not a NEW bike, but a second-hand one. It’s a Brompton, which is something I’ve wanted for some time . . .
Actually I bought it a couple of weeks ago, but with the weather I’ve not really been out on it. Then there was the issue with buying second hand stuff. You never quite know what you’re getting, so the New Puppy ended up spending a little time at the "Vets" (a.k.a. the bike shop, where they have the very expensive tools required for bleeding edge Brompton fettling). All of which meant that I didn’t get quite the bargain I’d have wanted. Bah.
But it’s a lovely puppy all the same, and unlike a real puppy, has so far managed not to chew through the cable for our Christmas tree lights!
