I Don’t Bounce – Janathon update
I should have known better. It was icy underfoot when I walked the dog and half an hour later it was no better. Still in my stupidity I decided to bike to work. I will not do this again on an icy day. I came a complete cropper at a junction when I tried to break. Surely everyone knows there aren’t supposed to be other vehicles on the road. What stunned me more I think was that the woman who saw me fall and then lie there stuck with leg caught between the pedal and the bike could sail on by without stopping. I then picked my way gingerly the rest of the way to work, getting off frequently due to frozen puddles right across my path. The journey home whilst not frozen was sticky and slippy and to be honest my hand really hurts. So to top it all I haven’t gone to badminton tonight either.
The picture above is all I wanted to come home to. I’m saving a picture of my hand for tomorrow when hopefully the bruising will be sympathy gathering.
