    good god, what is it coming too! what weather. Made it all the way to brixton without incident so thanks to a lot of careful drivers out there, taxis, buses and cars, oh and MBs too. There were some tw*ts, one van man who wanted me to cycle in the gutter with a foot of watter and the heavy lorry forcing me over too. B'stard.

    As for the 'effing stupid god dam ignorant, effing cow who, without looking, decided to walk out into me, I don't know if text is enough lol. Despite shouting at her as soon as i noticed her stepping off the pavement, SHOUTING at her, she kept walking. Of course, not very good brakes in wet and managed to get her a wedgie! lol. Lucky i was approaching a red light so at hte most i was going 5-10mph wiht brakes full on, walling at her to stop. What if i was a car, or a MB, she would be waiting for the ambulance now. So, front wheel is, i think only misaligned, not buckled.

    plus, she didn't even say sorry, only looking back when i shouted "words and things" at her.

    Here is a pic of the lovely August evening in London, about 19.15

    I was very lucky, just managed to get home from Greenwich when it came down with a vengeance. So heavy that we can't sit in the conservatory as it is SO BLOODY LOUD

    It has been the same in Notts. My shoes have been wet since Monday :sad:
    Had to walk through a river which used to be a road - so deep I darent ride through it and my socks ended up covered in oil which was floating on the water - lovely.

    I love British Summers ;)

    Nope - dont have a cat! Must have been something dodgy in the road river earlier this week.

    I only have one pair so they have to wait until tomorrow night for a wash :smile:
