No, I haven’t forgot about my blog or anything like that. Just that my computer decided it had done enough, at least the hard drive did. So after much pondering and wondering I found someone that could help me out and now I have a new hard drive and searching for all the things I’m missing. Its almost funny how many things you find out that you use without even thinking of it.

Otherwise nothing much happening. It’s been a real cold summer so far until now at least. Seems like it can turn for the better for a while. Daughter was invited to a friends birthday party and had lots of fun, besides one thing that at least affected me and daughter. One of her class mates at school lost his mum very recently. I can only imagine how they feel, it will take time for them all to get used to the reality of it and how all of them will act it out is a completely different matter. My thoughts are with them and I lit a candle for her and the family yesterday. It became really late until we could go to sleep any of us, memories popping back up again from our own times of grief and loss.

A couple of things left to do today, buying some groceries for dinner, grab a cup of coffee and make it an early night. But first waiting for the files to download on my stick from my mothers computer.

Offended? Neglected? Who? Why? I start to think that after this day at least. Do anyone of you know of any deity or other being who is the ruler, or something like that, of bikes? Especially everything that has to do with the wheels of said vehicle. This day has been really hot, and it is sort of nice if my bike just wanted to function the way it should again. At least the rear tire and everything that has to do with that part. I got a flat yesterday, and since I haven’t got the equipment to take care of it I asked my younger brother if he had the time and energy to help me out. No problems, he would help me today, so since the bike was at my moms and I left the key to the lock there, he could sort of start whenever he wanted and finding out what was wrong. I went off to a store that sells spare parts and got what I needed, went to my mum with my daughter going by bike before me since her cousins would be there too. He got the new parts, changed and whatever happened next it blew with a loud bang. Think balloon and add some more sound and you’ve got it. So back to square one, putting the one that he mended back and hope it would hold. Nope, it didn’t so I walked home with a flat and hoping to find someone to help me out tomorrow. No, I didn’t want to ask my brother to come over one more time since his youngest son was getting tired and didn’t want to leave home one more time. So, hence the question if there is some ruling deity or such over bikes.

But to end this one with some things that perhaps is a little more interesting than bikes not working, here are some recent photos for those of you who like them. All taken late May and I will get some even  more recent as soon as this with the bike is taken care of.
