I’ve just got in my my bicycle commute home and I wanted to share my thoughts.
It felt like the most surreal ‘rain’ ever. I actually feel like I’m in the Truman Show. The rain wasn’t like “normal” rain. It was coming down like an actual shower and it wasn’t cold?! SO so weird!! ALSO, the whole of Great Eastern Street was completely water-logged and apart from a few dents in the road, it doesn’t normally even have puddles when it rains! Very strange!
And isn’t she beautiful?? I’m going to pop Alice’s old basket on the front of my new one though. I NEED my basket!
*COMPETITION TIME* Now what shall I name my new bicycle? ANSWERS BELOW PLEASE (I think a postcard would take too long with all these postal strikes!) The best one/one I pick will win a surprise that I’ll post and a full on mention on my blog!! ‘citin. COMPETITION ENDS A WEEK TOMORROW – FRIDAY 7TH AUGUST, 10AM.
Now get those thinking caps on!

ALICE R.I.P: May 2006- June 2009.
It’s official, my absolutely beautiful little vintage bicycle, also fondly known as Alice, has died. Her chain broke on a trip to Tesco and because she is an antique no chain is replaceable. Of course I am beyond devastated as she is my pride and joy, however we have decided to keep her as an heirloom and I am now on the search for another bicycle. Alice is also not replaceable and never will be, but alas I must move on, and frankly I can’t afford TFL’s ridic prices, nor can I tolerate their lack of actual transporting. Therefore cycle power it is!
I’m after a little shopper – Alice, to be honest, was a little too big for me, hence why I fell off (I couldn’t touch the floor when I was sat on the saddle), something like the below would be perfect! I’ve got the basket off Alice, so having a basket on the front isn’t a complete necessity; nor is colour because I’m likely to spray paint the new bicycle gold 😀
I can collect from London (and surrounding areas) and can pay cash on collection or you could even have a listing on eBay and I can pay via Paypal and have you send it via courier – whatever is easiest 🙂

Now that we’re looking for a new place, clearly it is only apt to share with you the current abode of which we have the pleasure of living in:)
When we decided to move to London last year, we also decided to finally get our own furniture! Which, to be honest, is quite a big thing! After renting for the last five years in furnished places we were desperate to get our own furniture and FINALLY be able to make our own mark on a place, really make it OUR OWN, and give it a personality. We had collected a few bits and pieces over the years, but its the big things like a bed and matress, coffee table, dining table and chairs we needed. So we drew up a massive list and off to IKEA we went…
Still getting it all together mind!
