Cycle cycle cycle cycle..... Junction junction... Aargh! Bus! a Buuuus!
Dear readers, remember back in the mists of time, when being taught the green cross code, the admonishment to look right, look left, look right again?
This video shows just why that is important. As I was approaching the junction I looked right, then left then right again just as the bus miraculously appeared out of the morning sun. I didn't fall off either.
This morning was an unsettling commute - nothing went wrong as such but things just didn't flow - by the time the bus turned up I was ready for anything to go not quite right.
What went not quite right? all sorts of things, listed here in no particular order...
There were pedestrians using the shared path (how very dare they!) in clumps so I had to use my bell;
Said pedestrians were accompanied by loose dogs;
I had a bit of a wobble at the end of my road for no apparent reason;
The traffic lights on Portland road started changing when I was 2 meters from the line travelling at 30mph or so.
That sort of thing - nothing major yet the whole was greater than the sum of the parts
I hope that my journey home will be even less eventful and more relaxed - if it isn't you will be the first to know.
p.s. in case you didn't realise the title of this post pays homage to Weebl's Badgers
p.p.s. Yes I know that isn't the original; it is the new live action version and no Weebl hasn't fixed the synch issue!
