I have today:
- Made extensive and careful enquiries with the Inland Revenue to ensure that yes, I really am up-to-date, that there are no nasty surprises around the corner, and that they really do owe me several thousand pounds; I subsequently wrote a brief letter to said government agency, requesting said refund.
- Ordered a stupidly expensive but unbelievably slick road/commuting bike.
Try as I might, I just can’t see any connection between these two events. Ahem.
The bike in question:
Yes John, I’m aware that it appears to have rather fewer spokes than seems reasonable. And yes, this does worry me, traditionalist that I am. But it’s unbelievably fast and – shock – there’s one in the country in my size, which is more than can be said for any other model. Seriously.
