Good and bad in equal measure

:-D

I have a new bicycle!

Trek L400


I used to say I hated cycling, and I did...but I've changed my mind. Turns out all I needed was a better bike. I honestly think I could take this bike and ride it all the way to Spain and back, if I could spare the time; it rides like a dream!

David Berkeley came to The Netherlands last month, on a short tour of places I had never even heard of (let alone visited) before. I managed to catch two of his shows, and he was beyond brilliant. I couldn't believe it had been a full 6 years since I last saw him - I hope it won't be as long again.

The Dutch equivalent of HMRC have decided I owe them a couple of hundred euros. They want it paid in full, pronto.

Manasse has a bladder infection. The vet gave him a shot today, but from tomorrow, I will have to feed him his pills...which, going on past experience, is not a task I'm looking forward to. He's literally going to rip me to shreds.

The bike looks like fun!

The bike is, most definitely, fun. Also, a worry, as I'm constantly fretting it'll get nicked whenever I have to leave it in a public space for more than 2 seconds...

Hurrah for having a good bike.

Poor Manasse - poor you too, I recognise the problem. We did, finally, find we could get pills into poor old Shaka by grinding them up and adding them to smoked salmon pate!

Manasse turns up his nose at smoked salmon paté. Also, diet food from the vet's, which he is reduced to now...
