Flora came into my life today.
She's a fixed wheel bicycle that I successfully bought on eBay at the end of last week. Between you and me, I think she's done a bit of living, 'cos she's a bit tired and rough around some of her edges. I reckon she's seen a few things, and been well-loved in her time.
I spent a bit of time putting her back together, as she'd arrived all dismantled and squeezed into a surprisingly-small box. Next it's off to the bike shop to get her trimmed by someone who knows what they're doing. And then I can take her out for a spin!
Oh, and she's a kind of off-purple colour that could never be confused with pink.
