[I knew the Welsh were tight (they watch the price of Leeks like the world watches the NASDAQ) but Ant, you're taking the mick ..... Nottingham will be ashamed of you mate!
Ha ha, I didn't go to Lidl to buy it, it was the in-laws who were there and picked it up. It was kinda like "I should really get a bike cover... really" and me being as determined as ever I just didn't bother. When the in-laws phoned to say they'd gone to Lidl and they had a load of bike stuff my Mrs asked me if I'd be interested in anything. I'm pretty sure I replied something like "I don't want any of their cheap crap" until they said they had bike covers for under £10. I was off work after my accident at the time and the new bike was sat on the back yard getting rained on every day so I figured "well I ain't gonna go and fetch one so I'd might as well take it".
Didn't actually expect it to last this long, so I'm actually kinda chuffed, it's just that this month I've been paid 3/4 of my normal wage packet because my sick pay expired (hence why I've gone back to work even though I'm in a worse state than I was before my op). D'oh!
