I has bargains!

I had to re-repair the wiring of my bike last night - there was still a bit of a short in the remaining stub of wiring, which needed to be separated properly and covered in insulating tape -until I fixed it the bike's electrics stayed on all the time, not ideal from a theft prevention viewpoint, and drained the battery. Not the AA guy's fault, he was working in poor light and couldn't have reached the last bit without taking the ignition switch casing apart, which is a bit of a bastard. His repair got me home, which was the main thing.

So having charged the battery overnight I took it out for a test ride, and ended up at my school's summer fete, where I wasted two quid on the bottle tombola (and failed to win any wine but won a small pot of face cream, which I gave back), spent a pound on the toy tombola and won a bear for elder grandnephew and a penguin for the younger one, and four quid on the books and DVD stall which got me a book and episodes 1-5 of Walking With Dinosaurs, episode 2 of Walking With Beasts, the movie of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the final season of Battlestar Galactica. The latter was a quid, and still sealed in its original packaging! Really can't believe my luck on that one, it cheered me up immensely.

Supposed to be heading over to a friend in Twickenham in a couple of hours, but the weather's a bit naff and I'm not 100% sure I want to risk using the bike outside central London, so I'll probably end up taking the train. So it goes...
