blankets and bikes

Turns out that waiting for plaster walls to dry out thoroughly is terribly boring. Can’t make progress in bathroom or bedroom until they’re good and ready, so I’ve been painting some wooden furniture in the meantime and am about to embark on the wooden window frames. So, nothing to show you today. EXCEPT for New Blanket, which I begun about five years ago and then somehow abandoned….

I crochet while I work my way through all four seasons of House of Cards. I’m in love with Kevin Spacey. I always was and I always will be.

Something else that’s been occupying my thoughts while in renovation limbo: a BMW GS 1200.  I’m not going to say any more about it right now, except that it looks like I’m going to need my own helmet…

    Oh my gosh! Boys and their toys. I’m waiting for a photograph of you on the bike. Wayne has taken up racing at Killarney, what more can I say?

    Love your blankey.

    You also need to get a backrest/top-box fitted if you’re going to travel any distance on the back of that beauty. A sheepskin seat cover or Eaglehawk inflatable seat cushion will also help. We got Miss Scarlett’s seat completely re-sculpted and recovered and it made a massive different, particularly for me. Prepare to be blown away and develop a new addiction!

      Thank you. I will pass this information on to Bike Boy. I also want two boxes or whatever you call them, one for each side. For stuff, you know, like crochet, books and coffee…!!!

        Panniers, my dear, panniers… BMW makes some seriously enormous ones for their bikes. And you could probably also use a tank pack for the phone, sunnies, wallet, water bottle, etc.

    I used to ride a 500cc Kawasaki, but if I dropped it, I couldn’t pick it up on my own! However, I’m guessing you are going to be riding pillion, so that won’t be a problem for you.
    Here’s hoping for speedily drying plaster (but not so speedy it cracks).
