Our local cycling tracks are treated as a car park by employees of the local hospital

I actually managed to replace the tyres/inner tubes despite being "assisted" by a small toddler ("Daddy, what happens if I put my hand on these greasy cogs?"). I'll have to get the gears professionally seen to though, as it's stuck in the top two of how ever many it has.
Also pleased to find that on my first outing onto the main road for a few months that the city has marked some pseudo cycle lanes. Not really enough space for proper ones but the markings do help make it clear that that bit of the road is a perfectly legitimate place for a cyclist to be. Which is nice.


The gears can probably be easily fixed by removing however many of Squidlet's fingers are stuck in them.
As for cycle lanes - BEWARE!
They are only there to make it easier for motorists to know where to aim for. I have noticed a disturbing development in Leyland whereby car drivers are putting cyclist stickers on the sides of their cars as fighter pilots did :worried:


That's some seriously good flying by the pilots Mick. Either that or you have flying cyclists up there.

A lot has change in the past few months but the short of it is I have completed my university Degree and gone straight into employment.

More importantly however as an added Bonus this has seen off a period of Emergency Belt tightening which means I have Money for trains again!  :D

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Just had confirmation from taxman that me and missus no longer have to complete self assessment tax forms. No response to letter sent but phone call sorted it.
 :)
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

We went on line and did the assessment and it said we didn't need to fill in tax returns. A week or so later we had confirmation letters. Another week or so later we had a letter stating our tax returns were due. When I checked the date, it was dated 2 months before the exemption letter. I don't expect it was Royal Mail that delayed it.

I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Properly back online after being without broadband for two weeks.  We survived unsing wifi hotspots, but I can't imagine living that way!  :thumbsup:
