Bicycles and Laughs

We picked up Keira's birthday present early yesterday. We've gotten her a pushbike with training wheels and a steer bar at the top, both of which are detachable for when she learns to ride properly. And because we pander to her pink-fantasies, this bike is said colour, with tassles coming off the handlebars and a little basket on the front, pretty much big enough to carry one single cherry-sized cherry. She also got a new helmet. We were going to get her a unisex Wiggles one, because we are cheap, and at least Riley would get wear out of it once she grows out of it, but no, we caved as soon as we saw her eyes clap upon the PINK one with FAIRIES on it.

Because we live just around the corner from the bike shop, we let her 'ride' (read: Adam push) home. Passersby were treated to screams of "I love my new bike!" "Look at my new helmet - fairies!"

Then, because it had been a nice day, and because we were in a spendy mood, instead of renting "Little Miss Sunshine" from the video store, we bought it at Coles. It was worth it too; I haven't laughed like that in a long time.

Today marks the end of daylight savings here in Australia. So, I have an extra hour today. Which I would normally be rapturous about, but today only means I have no excuse NOT to clean this house.

That's odd that our Daylight Savings is not at the same time as yours. It's stupid anyway, don't get me wrong, but you'd think it would make sense to have everyone doing it at the same time.

Hey good luck on the bike caper - I can say from this end the joy of being able to get there and fast is one to behold!!!

Daylight savings does have a lot to answer for. A state here doesn't even HAVE it! They don't like it
