So for years now I’ve been hiding some dark secrets about myself, and I thought it was about time I came clean with everyone, so here goes:
1) I can’t wink. Ridiculous, but true.
2) I’ve never seen a shooting star. The universe is conspiring against me.
3) I can’t ride a bicycle. I blame my parents.
But after close to forty years of having to hide my shame, one of these things is no longer true (well kind of!). Thanks to Dave du Preez’s fabulous cycling school I can now almost ride!!!! And after only two lessons! Prodigy I tell you! Truth be told it has nothing to do with my rather pathetic balancing skills, and everything to do with Dave’s teaching method which involves removing the peddles from adult-sized bicycles, and allowing you to scoot along on a disused tennis court, far from the stares of people who can’t believe there are adults out there who can’t ride! His method really works, and Dave and Mpho are so calm and encouraging it makes for a great overall experience! Plus as a reward you get to have lunch at the fabulous Breezeblock afterwards (also run by Dave!).
So if you know of anyone else out there who shares my shameful secret please help spread the word! You might just change their life!

P.S. Unfortunately I managed to pick up a tummy bug over the weekend, so wasn’t able to finish today’s posts. My apologies! Things will return to normal again tomorrow!
