Well it started well with a family photo shoot which was great fun and some lovely images - then it was off to celebrate my granddaughters birthday, held on a farm with lots of opportunities to try my hand at equine photography, and today I had to part with my much loved bike - although I hadn't really ridden it much lately, so when my husband decided to put both bikes on ebay, I decided to have one last ride - well that was my mistake - because it had been a while since I had ridden it and I had completely forgotten that I needed to get out of the saddle and onto the pedals when I stopped, because the bike had alas always been a bit big for me, meaning I couldn't reach the ground when seated! So I forgot, stopped put my foot down and yes you guessed it I couldn't reach the ground and over I went followed by the bike, unfortunately I have now learnt that at my age I just don't bounce so well as I used to - plus the house wall was rather too close, meaning I fell head first into the back wall of the house - ouch!! So drama all round, paramedics called, but I am happy to say no real damage apart from my pride - felt a complete idiot when asked what I had done!! Although had the last laugh when the paramedic's car rolled clean off the drive into the road because he had not applied the hand brake!
So so long bike hope you are good to your new owners!
