I'm still cycling! To my own surprise.
First, I cycled with Sarah along the Thames for about 20 miles, apparently. We met some goats and found an amazing hidden reference library full of scrap books from the 70s.
Sarah's blog - she has a proper report, and more pictures of me looking like a fool, which in this case I rather enjoy. There's no way of looking less than daft on my bike. I mean, look at it.
Anyway, I've been riding it to work and back and generally around the place, and I'm really rather fond of it by now, even though I am covered in bruises from mis-foldings and assorted things that happen every time it needs to travel up and down stairs. I also gave the new rental bikes a try which have popped up all over town, and I like mine a lot better. Those things weigh a ton, I was completely knackered after the first slight incline. For some reason the folding bike isn't tiring at all. Nor is it fast, admittedly.
Today I almost stayed off it after seeing a bad car wreck just by my bus stop, but then decided to keep going. I felt a bit rattled all day though... I am feeling a bit rattled anyway, moving house is very daunting. I expect it will be wonderful once it's accomplished, but right now it's just a matter of many large items being in the wrong place, one of them myself, basically.
I drew another page of comic today, meaning I'm well into the second chapter now, and I also took some time to paint some monkeys for the nice people who gave me a dinner table in exchange. Here's a stack of monkeys. I am keeping one myself, because it makes me smile, but they can choose from the rest. I suggested taking the two on the left in the photo as a set, because they shouldn't really be broken up I think, much funnier as a sequence.
I've got some more furniture for drawings offers, but no sofa yet! Come on!
Hm, I wonder if I should write a picture book about monkeys.
