A strange day today.
It took me an hour and a half to get out of the yard this morning, first my vehicle was unserviceable, then it's replacement wouldn't start, then after that nobody could unlock the lorry that was parked across the back of mine blocking me in.
On Mondays my job is to drive to all the inaccessible places in a mini bin lorry and pick up garden waste, the rounds are about 120 miles long and cover all sorts of roads right down to dirt tracks.
My replacement vehicle was a full sized bin lorry...
A decision was made to do what was possible, so I spent the whole day putting a quart in a pint pot.
I was enjoying myself so much I did an hour an a half of overtime and didn't even realise until after I had got home.
But the biggest grin of the day was when I got home.
My Nephew came round on his new to him VFR400 like I used to have and he and his father have decided that I should buy his bike and the price is very good, family rates
So I will shortly be back on the road on a Yamaha SRX 600.
And I had chips for tea.
I think that might be one of my favourite grins for a while. And I don't even like bikes. I do like lorries and chips though.
