Cycling to work at midday yesterday, I saw two very blond girls on the other side of the road on the pavement. As I went past, one of them waved and shouted hello. I u-turned and went back to return the greeting. Turns out it was the 7 year old daughter of a friend of mine and her friend. I'll call them Ruby and Justine, since that was their names. There ensued and bit of light-hearted chit-chat and just as I was about to depart, they asked me if I would like to see their dance. I answered in the affirmative. After much clapping, skipping, gap-toothed giggling and flailing of stick-thin limbs, they completed their routine and I duly applauded said goodbye and then went on my way. The rest of my ride was completed with a broad grin!
