Well I have just had the second biggest surprise. As many of you know I have got into running and Zumba. What you might not be aware of is I have also discovered I enjoy cycling as well. But I have been having to use my youngest daughter's bike. All my family have a bike but me as I did not think it was something I would enjoy. They would all go mountain biking and I would have no problem staying home and crafting. But recently I thought biking around the neighbourhood would be fun so started off going with Grace. So Grace would go on her bike and I would ride Melissa's. I would also use Melissa's helmet and Grace's gloves (Grace would then use Brad's gloves). Then Melissa started school holidays and I thought it would be fun for the three of us to go for a ride, but there inlay a problem, they had a bike but I didn't (I could not fit Brad's bike but also he has special pedals).
For Christmas my wonderful family was able to get me a lovely red helmet and some lovely green gloves so at least I would not have to keep borrowing theirs. Then this afternoon as I was cleaning the craft room my Mum popped by. I still did not suspect anything. I should mention she also rang yesterday to talk to Brad but I did not pick that anything was 'up'. When Mum and come round this afternoon, Brad had 'popped' out, still I had no idea. I invited Mum in and offered a drink. So we started chatting and I showed her my new helmet and told her that I planned to go for a ride to try out my helmet using Melissa's bike tomorrow morning. She asked about us all going for a ride in the morning and I said how that would not work. But she kept saying, "but what if you could" Finally I twigged something was up as Brad had come home by now.
Sure enough I popped outside and there was my new bike. Similar to Melissa's but red like my helmet - AWESOME! I was and still am soooo excited (Can you tell by the look on my face in the photo below - such an awful photo but it does show the excitement LOL!) So hopefully it will stop raining soon so I can take it for a test ride.

Hmmm now I might just have to really think about doing a duathlon in 2013. Whoop whoop I am going to be really fit in 2013 that is for sure.
Ok gotta go try out my new bike :)
