Well since you're going to miss out on cycling to work 4 days a week, perhaps you should cycle the whole way
I will be "cycling to work" 4 days a week - I have a ten mile circuit and a thirteen mile circuit in mind, I will get up at the same time as I do now, cycle my 'commute', and then start work about the same time as I do now. Just all based around my home instead of having to go somewhere
I think I am happy today...
i) last night we semi-finalised my Grade VI programme (anyone who heard my list C piece at St Albans...it isn't my list C piece any more!)
ii) this morning when my husband was in the shower it got all very noisy and sounded like heavy rain...in the house...in the loft space...raining through the ceiling...argh, panic! The valve on the cold water tank has got gummed up and won't close. We managed to rig it shut (propping up the ballc*ck) and I drove to work, collected my laptop, and drove home again! 8am, phoned our plumber. We had him come round in April to quote us for a new bathroom, but he never did the quote, we tried really hard to get hold of him
But I phoned him and left a rambling message, and he must have listened to it straight away and phoned straight back. And he will be here later on this morning to fix it.
This makes me happy twice - firstly because it will be fixed; and secondly because I can ask him if he would still like to do our bathroom, and if not, could he recommend someone...
