There must be something about our family , cycling and the letter A .Tomorrow Jacob is cycling south from Amsterdam to Antwerp – but not the direct route .He is taking the scenic coastal ( windy ) route .I suppose if he keeps the sea on his right and the windmills on his left ,he can’t go far wrong .Thank goodness that today after a week in the capable hands of the GPO a parcel containing his padded pants, cycling shorts, gloves, cycling top and jacket plopped onto his …..neighbour’s doormat. Several notes and an attempt at forced entry , later , they were delivered to Jacob’s apartment .
Meanwhile ,in between priming the doors and reading the Screwfix Catalogue, John is in training for his cycle ride from Ealing to Amsterdam ( not while Jacob is in Antwerp , now that would be silly ).
Then after work today ,my head of department , who we shall call A ( even though his name’s Paul – but that wouldn’t fit in with the theme ), called me to a meeting , which we had on the exercise bikes .
And as for Florence , she has an A in her middle name ( as does John,Jacob,Rosie and I ) , so that’s rather spooky isn’t it – but nothing to do with bikes ?
New photos tomorrow xxxxx
