Hoist by own petard

Got home. Lent lunches tomorrow. “I’ll go to the shops for all the supplies.” …..  Curses….. No car. So off again on the bike with a rucksack on my back to buy kilos of parsnips and mushrooms, 12 pints of milk, various tins. Tired knees.

So that’s one week completed. Total car miles saved 622, being 482 on the train; 136 on the bike; 2 miles on the tram in Manchester and a couple of miles walking.

    Thankyou for shopping for the Minster Lent lunch. Excellent soup, bread , cheese and company. Our lent giving is for the Sudan (Save the children) and W Foodbank. The challenge is to build a mountain of groceries taller than me, 5 feet 2 inches.
