March 7. Day 67. The handyman can

I don't think my husband would object to me saying that he isn't very handy when it comes to things around the house - neither of us is.
In fact, I think our total household tool kit may consist of a hammer, a screwdriver and a pair of pliers - that's it. If there's a spot of home maintenance to be done, there's a man you can hire to deal with it.
But I do admire people who know how to fix things. And I am dead impressed by those who can fix things on the run so this Community Bike Repair Station at South Bank attracted my attention. Given the popularity of cycling in our city, the fact that a bike repair station has been set up in such a public space is an awesome initiative even if there is no chance I will ever have cause to use it


  1. I don't think I will ever use it but hey the concept like your picture is great...

  2. That is very cool indeed...though I'm very unlikely to use it. I've been banned from bikes since I almost collided with a bus in Italy :(
