I have to say that changing a wheel in the middle of Catford early on a Sunday morning was not really my idea of fun, but that's exactly what I found myself doing on the way to Parson's Green last weekend. Travelling down the hill towards the Catford Gyratory the van suddenly felt rather odd ... like I was driving on glass. Driving gingerly onwards, I managed to land in the McDonald's car park with one of my back tyres as flat as a pancake.
A swift pit stop (thanks to VW kitting out the van with all the right tools for the job!) and I was on my way again .. if a little later than planned. Pondering the logistics of both markets, I made a quick call to Anthony who was en route to Bishop's Park and diverted him instead to Parson's Green. He had a busy day there whilst I tested the waters at Bishop's Park in the wonderful setting of Fulham Palace.
Fortunately, the drive home was a little less eventful!
Monday afternoon was spent in the company of the wonderful Rendezvous Club in Sittingbourne. I had given a talk there last summer and when I was invited back again, I thought we should do something a bit different.
So, I arranged for a special licence from DEFRA and took Kimono's 3 little people on a day out. And you can see just how popular they were with all the lovely ladies at Rendezvous!
