Its Amazing How Good An Extra Inch or Two Feels

DSC_3868

I look at my collection from Argos. They look good, I slip them on. They feel so good. And then I take them off again. I have a tinker with my bike, with my brother now he has come round.

He surprises me with two boxes. One I know what is in it, the other is from QVC and while I know what is in it, I don’t. the advise slip isn’t much use.

There is five of the little things in there though. I crawl through my emails from months back. It was something I ordered in advance a long time in advance. In fact they are these. I rewatch the video on QVC

and yes I’m as excited about it now as I must have been all that time ago! Apparently by February they will have grown this big, if planted now and then flower. Yes flowers in February!

In this box is something for my fridge.

As my fridge likes to be at 10 deg C or –2 deg, depending on just a fraction of a turn of the dial, I mean minimum movement.  So I though I’d replace the thermostat. So plug the fridge. Take the screw cover off. Unscrew, take the bulb cover off and unscrew.

Undo the wiring plug and remove the unit and the long thin metal thing.

Prise the plastic dial off and then undo the nut. The thermostat will then come off the plastic housing.

The important thing here is to remember what colour goes where.

And then swap them over.

DSC_3850

Get the unit ready by uncoiling the new thermostat metal thing, making sure there are no kinks or you will have screwed it up again.

DSC_3851

Push said metal thing into black orifice.

DSC_3854

Gently routing it further in.

DSC_3855

Attach housing in place and put screw in.

DSC_3856

Put screw in bulb housing.

DSC_3857

Put bulb cover back on.

DSC_3859

Put dial back on.

DSC_3860

Plug fridge in.

DSC_3861

And wait and see.

DSC_3867

And with that I start watching Breaking Bad again. Yep I’m watching it again. I like it that much the first time.

DSC_3873

At some point I check the fridge, plant the plants and get my bike out.

DSC_3870

I head over the back yard.

DSC_3883

It’s the first time on my bike since last Sunday. My legs may have just recovered.

DSC_3886

Ah this is hard but nice. And all the gears are working since the work done this morning.

DSC_3888

It is time to stop and with it

DSC_3892

I can tell you how amazing an extra inch or two feels.

DSC_3897

Here we have the two new bags fitted to my bike. One contains a lock. The other contains nothing., that being the top one. But what you should notice is

DSC_3894

The handle bar stem has now got an extension piece on which has raised the handle bars just enough to make the riding position such much more comfortable.

DSC_3898

I admire the stillness of the lake.

DSC_3902

And decide on finishing the ride, what else am I going to do?

DSC_3907

And then I was in for a surprise.

DSC_3909

The heather has all gone purple and it looks so very very nice.

DSC_3908

Ah as the sun is setting.

DSC_3910

I make it home

DSC_3911

And it is time to make some tea.

DSC_3912

Ah chilli tonight then.
