New Wheeeels:


It's my old tricycle from Le Eighties made all nice and shiny and new again for Isobel, she doesn't even know about it yet, I can't wait to see her face. Ah the glorious days I spent tricycling about the place, under tables, under peoples legs, out the back of the house on the path way and drive way, wind in my "airy fairy" hair, plasters all over my legs, marmite on my cheeks, kittens all over the shop. I loved that trike with all of my heart, Raleigh Special with frogs on the seat, peddling away like I was free as a bird.

I think the reason why I loved it so much was because the siblings were too big to have a go of it so it was all mine all the time. I have some vague recollections of falling off it a few times. Poor me when I was three.

My Dad is the best Dad and the best Granddad for Izzers ever for fixing it all up so it's like new again!


It has to be said, it is indeed the most awesomest tricycle ever. And it's a proper Raleigh too!

Also: The best colours for a kids tricycle/bicycle are quite clearly red and yellow.

I think another reason why I loved it so much is because it's the Noddy colours and I loved Noddy when I was a wee 'un!
Hopefully there will be years of enjoyment for Isobel and any other grandchild that comes along cause she is SO not taking it home with her, it's for Nana and Gan-Dad's house only!

Parp Parp!

I always loved the toys that were in Granny and Grandad's house when I was ickle. They had the cool James Bond Aston Martin DB5 with the ejector seat and the spinning number-plates and pop-up shields and everything!

have to say, i always wanted a shot of that bike when i was over but i wasn't let!

What?? Really they had the DB5? I have no recollection, it must have been Billy's. All I remember is pick up sticks...damn!
Andy - you would have been WAY too big to fit, see that was the attraction to it for me...all mine!
