This website was invented many years ago, when the author kept coming across interesting things in pockets whilst doing laundry. Like small, terrified reptiles. Blogging about raising children in the rainforest, moving them to the UK and watching them leave home one by one to have their own adventures has gradually been replaced by a return to grownup life for their mother, Nan Sheppard, who is an anthropologist, writer and public international law consultant.
So, I have been driving my brother-in-law's car for two weeks, but yesterday I had to give it back. Alas! And I told myself I'd start cycling to work instead. So naturally, this morning was freezing and misty moisty. I nearly caved and took the bus.
Me on my way home from work. Ok, not really. Max's friend Jimmy takes to the sky.
But no! I was brave, and donned my gloves, and hit the road with plenty of time to spare. And lo, it was cold and damp and fog stuck to my cloves and my face froze. But the ride back HOME, dear readers, after work, was divine. Sunshine, cool breezes and trees blossoming.
I think this weekend we'll go and ride in the park.
