A New Beginning

The in-laws came, the in-laws went. My toe-nails are no longer blue. Funny, but I'd gotten used to them over the past two weeks. Last night I figured that going down to our local pub in flip flops, sporting sparkly toes wouldn't be a particularly smart move. A dab of alcohol and a bit of elbow grease and my little piggies were au naturel again.

I started the new job yesterday, with this being my first day at the London office. Hurrah! Very short commute! The mighty Google tells me it's just over 3 miles door to door. I might even ditch public transport in favour of two-wheeled freedom in the very near future. If I managed to average 15 miles an hour then I could be home in less than quarter of an hour. I should try it and see, I guess.

Exciting times! We'll see how the increased spare time affects the progress of the project...

Do the bike thing.... Great. Get to work, free (well 'ish) and get fit...

I'd cycle to my job but it's over 40 miles each way.... 1. I'd die. 2. When I got to the office be time to set off home again... :-)

While I'd like to think that switching to two-wheeled transportation would help me keep fit, I'm afraid the fact that there's a motor and a gearbox attached to the wheels may reduce the number of calories I'd burn :-)

Nice idea, though!
