>I Could Be Happy

>Why could I be happy?

Well another day and another short ride on my bike. My knee feels less painful today than yesterday, albeit still hurting. I’m hoping to ride further tomorrow. I want to try to do 10 miles tomorrow in the morning.

I have a physiotherapist appointment in the afternoon on Thursday and a hopeful that he will say to continue riding.

The above is the good happening.

Less good is the fact my car appears to have a fault with the fuel pump and is going to need repairing ASAP. I was going to book the car into the garage for repairs, but I have somehow mislaid my wallet. I last saw it on Monday. All my bank cards, driving licence, store cards etc are in their. Without my wallet, I am struggling to get access to my money. I cancelled one of the cards today, but have been waiting to hear from someone if my wallet was at their house. I didn’t want to cancel all the cards if the wallet was there. When they called tonight they confirmed my wallet wasn’t there.

I was left to start planning how to get access to my cash without cards etc, meaning I’d have to go to the bank and get cash over the counter. Ethical banking is fine, but it does have the drawback of not having a bank anywhere nearby.

I’ve turned the house and car upside down looking for the wallet. I’ve even been through the rubbish bags just in case…. No joy.

Finally about an hour ago, I found the wallet. It was under the telephone in my study. Quite why it was there I have no idea. At least I’m not left without easy access to funds. To say I was relieved is an under statement.

I just have to book my car in for repairs now. I’m not looking forward to the cost of that.

Thursday night brings with it the joys of the LVYCC committee meeting. I’m chairing the meeting at which we are supposed to be discussing the future constitution of the committee and the club as a whole. Nice light subject matters. Quite how I’m going to get there with my car in the state its in, I’m not sure.

Does this post explain the song in the title? Probably not, but I wanted an excuse to watch the Clare Grogan video that is linked to the title. Yes, I’ll admit to still thinking she’s hot. I know I know, I’m a sad individual.

Now how about making a donation to my sponsorship target.

About spen666

I'm a 50 something football fan and occasional cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds previously. I have 1 left to rejoin the 92 club. Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I now am one of the organising committee for the UK Police Unity Tour (www.ukpoliceunitytour.org ) I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
