After 10 days of travelling around the South Island with few cares it was Down to Earth with a crash. Had a day of achievements but also some frustration.
After a pleasant run along the beach it was down to chores. After vacuuming, weeding the lawn and clipping the hedge I wrote the melody for my recent composition Xmas Cheer that I wrote on Christmas Day. Quite pleased with the result after some advice from my co-producer, Lea. She gave me some excellent advice about the tempo of the song.
Up to this point I was feeling self righteous and content. I should have stopped there. When I tried to put on my racing tyres and mend punctures I found myself spending 2 hours with very little to show for my time.
The tyre was reluctant to go on the rim and after a half an hour trying I discovered I pinched the tube when getting it on so it had to come back off. The tubes also didn't want to be repaired as the patches kept coming off.
Never mind I've put it behind me for another day.
Hope your day has gone better!
