Sorry about the long hiatus there; I was away, then spending most of my time working at home (cowardly woman doesn’t like going out when there’s ice on the pavements) and so didn’t have much to say.

I’ve finally heaved myself out of the front door and across town to our (bitterly cold) business unit. On the way back yesterday I called at Tesco, which is next to Asda, and squeezed my bike between the solid traffic. A large part of it was cars with Irish Republic plates, taking advantage of the plummeting pound despite the pleas of the Mayor of Dublin for them to do their shopping at home.
