Alas, poor Yorick
Purple Haze broke down, next there was Ickle. Ickle begot Ribbid begot Blue (all stolen). Blue begot this here Setico. Alas, poor Setico! It 's knackered.
I've had this one for over three years. I think that's the longest I've ever had a bike since moving to England. Ickle I had for the shortest time: A glorious 1930s Falcon it was thieved within 72 hours. Don't let anybody tell you a D-lock is hard to break. I've lost my keys many a time so I know from experience: You can get it open in one hit if you aim a hammer right. Never mind bolt cutters.
I am told bikes stolen in Cambridge are usually resold in Oxford. Then when they once again are crammed into the back of a white van they are driven right back to Cambridge. Not that I am still sore about Ickle or anything ;)
Anyway, it 's time for a "new" bike so I wanted to make sure I had some pictures of old Setico first. I have none of Ickle, Ribbid or Blue - which is a shame as soon as those were all classics. I'll show you my new ride as soon as I've found one that 's right for me :)
It 's funny how some dresses just make you want to twirl. I feel all twirly in this one :)
I wore this on Wednesday and was inordinately surprised to see Louise in the same dress when I was browsing blogs. I did a little double take looking down myself. Yep, that is what I am wearing. Louise really wore it a couple of days before me, but that is still a pretty cool coincidence. :D
