    Top three comments from the public when I’m on mine:
    1. Got any ice creams?
    2. Wow that’s a cool bike.
    3. Did you make that yourself?

    From this I conclude:
    1. There is a deep seated collective memory of people sells my ice creams from bikes like this, despite them not having been around since rationing.
    2. Some people are nice.
    3. Some people are nice but dim.

    […] Back to my school run quandary. So, just the thought of driving to the school filled me with fear. Anyone who has ever attempted walking a mile and a half with a 3 year old and a 1 year old on a regular basis will know why this was an unthinkable option (think lateness and arguing day in, day out). Enter….the cargo bike….. […]

    […] This week has been February break with the kids off school. This means that my normal daily routine goes to pieces and I have both children all day long. I like the school holidays. I like being able to decide on a whim what to do each day. I like the fact that every other sentence I utter in the morning is not “please, hurry up!”, unlike during school mornings. But I miss my daily cargo biking. […]
