(I stole this thread idea from another forum I frequent - let's see if it has legs here) Had to bring the cage in this morning because my daughter had to be dropped off at school early for an excursion. The traffic has been managable the past couple of weeks because of school holidays, but yesterday and today all the parents whose kids are too precious to ride the bus meant massive delays. Took something like 90 minutes to make a journey that is 40 on the bike in heavy traffic and 20 on the bike in no traffic. Missed the bike all day, and am looking forward to the trip home in the cage not at all. But I have a bastarding headache, so probably wouldn't have been at my best on the bike. That was probably because I had my annual performance review meting this arvo. It actually went pretty well, but it stressed me a bit. I did write 4000 words of a book chapter today though, so that leaves me with a sense of achievement... I think the plan is (1) drive home, (2) take serious headache drugs, (3) go for an evening ride.
