It was a little on the small side for me and I felt ridiculous, but I pedalled furiously, delighting in my ability to change the gears smoothly, and made good time.
I reached my destination - which turned out to be a fabric shop - just in time for a special 15 minute sale. They were selling whole bolts of fabric - Jane Churchill, Nina Campbell, Colefax & Fowler, etc, etc.
The sale price was 3 bolts of fabric for 70p. No limit on quantity.

It was so exciting, so unexpected.
I needed no further invitation, my greedy hands reached for the fabrics and then I woke up.
