Helmet

My stupid weight has gone down to 77.7 kgs now. How wack is that?

I mentioned a while back that my friend had given me his old bike. I’ve been waiting until I could afford to buy the accessories – helmet, lock, etc – before picking it up. So yesterday I went up to K-Mart to get them.

Because I’ve got an abnormally small head, I had to get a children’s helmet! That’s good in the way that I could get a pink one with flowers and butterflies on it but I’m worried the strap isn’t long enough. It feels uncomfortable but maybe that’s just because I’m not used to wearing a strap under my chin. I also got a lock and was tempted by other accessories like handlebar streamers and pretty baskets but decided to stick to the basics.

I also got more wool and some pretty pjs – they have bees on them and come with a tee-shirt as well as the tops and bottoms. I love the tee-shirt so much that I think I’ll wear it as day wear for a while. I made another pair of slippers last night – I’m a slipper knitting machine!

So now I just have to organise picking up my bike then I can start riding.

  1. Woo hoo for riding! You’ll have such a good time! You’re lucky to have a dinky little head – I’d love to have one of those cute helmets 😦
    have a good week

  2. hehehehe I can just imagine you riding around with a pink helmet with flowers. Now if only there was a way you could poke a hole in it for your ponytail, wouldn’t that be good.

    I’d have a bike too but I’m too frightened of the crazy drivers here. I’ll just stay with the exercise bikes in the gym.

  3. We are living in some kind of freaky parallel universe you and I. What’s going on??
    No, i’m not getting any kind of riding in at the moment, i’m talking about our weight! hehe

  4. I have the reverse problem – my head is too big that I have trouble getting helmets, caps etc to fit. Yay to nearly joining the world of cycling!

    How cool to be getting a bike. I hate helmets but we gotta wear them. Love the sound of those slippers, especially for winter!
