So many amazing and wonderful things have happened this year. I never could have guessed that there was more to come!
Yesterday I went over to Cathy's house. We'd planned to go out for lunch, and I'd asked if I could take her bike for a test ride before I began looking at bike shops myself.
When I arrived, she said that she had a surprise for me..... and OMG what a surprise it was!
A big group of beautiful friends had all contributed to buy me a new bike! UNBELIEVABLE!
I took it for a test spin straight away.
I haven't been able to ride a bike for well over ten years. I was a little bit wobbly at first, but I managed to stay upright.
We went to the bike shop so that I could choose a helmet and a bike lock.
I came home and rode laps of the park with the nephews.
It was soooooo much fun!
There was a huge envelope full of gorgeous birthday cards too.
Thankyou so much to Cathy for pulling off such an amazing feat and keeping it a secret, and thankyou one and all to my beautiful friends.
Best early birthday pressie ever!!!
