Usual December Christmas Eve nightmare. Last minute gift buying on the way home. This time it was little extras for Maia and Milo. I managed to get Mum & Dad something before the panic really set in. After dinner it was wrapping. Of all things I got Mum a garden spade as Diana had had a little whoopsie and broken her old one. I took great delight marking it "Fragile - keep away from daughter". Just as well I did as the wrapping paper kept tearing on me. Then everything had to go on the bike. Luckily the new pannier bags are large capacity. The only difficulty was getting the spade on-board ... It went crosswise over the panniers and clipped on with bungies. All ready for tomorrow's ride.
