Taste of Playa
6:30am I am starting my day off listening to the rain and tackling the long standing task of going through old emails and updating the school blog. What a can of worms to work in blogger after using wordpress so long.
9:33am got 15 or so new posts up on Holy Cross school blog and I still have 6 pages of emails left to sort through and see what needs posting – hopefully I can finish it off in one shot today.
11:50 – hooray I finally finished. Heading to town to pick up a few things including bikes from Peter Jones – a yummy $5 sandwich from the baker and a new tv remote. (ours died already)
2:41 Rain has let up did not get to wet on our travels. Got the bikes and took them to our repair guy around the corner. Luckily there was a young boy around to help translate for us as to what needed to be done. Both bikes need some work – new spokes – air in tires – oil – a new seat for one [$34 bzd] and loose the baby seat. Hopefully repairs will not be to costly – for sure it will be less than buying 2 new ones. Thanks again to Peter Jones for helping us get wheels.
Here are 3 noteworthy things…
