We have a full house again.  All four boys are back from their holidays.  Two have friends over for sleepovers.

My hunt for a Dutch bike has ended with a Montego Divine.  I rode it home – only 12 miles – but it felt like more due the hills of North Bucks.

No.five will be whizzing along with me by the end of the week when her pink bike seat arrives.
