As it turns out I've been riding around on the Vespa with a flat back tire for about the last week. I did notice that the scooter wasn't steering very well and I did check the front tire but as it was fully inflated I thought perhaps it was just due to the roads being a bit slick from the cold.
Turns out it was the back tire that was flat. Don't worry, no one was hurt in the process of this realization.
If you're interested in an Oyster Card / Business card wallet, they're now available in the Maradoll etsy shop. I've made about 50 of these puppies for the Brockley craft market and I'm proud to say that no two are the same. I only uploaded 9 to Etsy; it sure takes a lot of time to upload items to Etsy!
phone rang once today and on the caller display it’s Matt. I call Matt back
straight away thinking that this could be something work related and that I’ve
missed his call due to my archaic phone.
message: “Hi Matt, it’s Mara. I’ve got a missed call from you. It only rang
once and it’s showing as a missed call from you. I don’t know if it was my
phone being weird or you being weird. Anyway, call me back if you need
me back: “Sorry about the missed call. I was walking to the post office and was
trying to make a call on my iPhone, but I’m wearing gloves. The iPhone touch
screen won’t work with gloves on, so I was dialling with my nose. But I was
trying to dial my wife’s number and instead it dialled yours and I was trying
to frantically hang up with my nose.”
it’s good to hear that it wasn’t my phone being weird."
