I often start a story in the middle, not the beginning when I am telling people about things (am I scattered brained? only a lot). Anyhoo, there are two bikes in pieces on my garage floor. (yep that sounds like the middle).

Started out with the younger daughter buying a bike (for fun and exercise) and putting it together. When the AH found out he ended up dragging his old bike out of the shed and putting it into a roadworthy condition in order to ride with her. I think they have just finished replacing a tube in his rear tire, and putting the wheel back on. Next sliding the chain around the gears and pumping all the tires, and hopefully enough dry weather to let the two of them go for a ride.

Its a long time since any of us have had our bikes out on the road, so maybe a nice quiet bike track to start with eh you two?

Talking of quiet, APEC is over, and so air traffic around my place should return to something like normal soon. (I live within coo'ee of Bankstown airport, and every bloody motorcade, which all city people cursed for the traffic interruptions, had to have at least one police helicoptor escort.) One of those bloody world leaders arrived at about 1am on Friday morning - must have been important, they got two heli's - so I am a bit over the whole thing. Rant over.

The lovely spring showers have brought out heaps of native flowers all over the neighbourhood, trees, shrubs and alll kinds of little flowers peeping around the usual greenery, so life is verrrry pretty at present. photos to follow.

And ISE5 signups are on now ......... wahoo!

I have never been to Australia - but was in New Zealand during December a few years ago. I'll never forget the fields of beautiful wild flowers. Can't wait to see your pictures!

Lovely to get rid of APEC (and George) sorry about the motorcades - but spring is always great!

Yeah--my Mate and oldest daughter go do the 'fix bike/ride bike' thing sometimes... chain grease in the kitchen, new tires arll around...

(And really, you can keep George. It's not like we're all fuzzy warm warm to have him back.)
