Walking bruise

I would like to say a big thank-you to the young mum with two small children and the lady in the high vis (Southern Water?) jacket who were so kind when I managed to crash my bicycle into somebody’s front hedge/wall in Shirley Drive last Monday afternoon.

I was a bit stunned at the time and I’m not sure if I thanked them properly after they helped me up off the pavement. It must have been a hugely funny sight at the time, but they didn’t laugh and tried to make sure I was OK before I walked off with the battered bike. Thank you both, whoever you are.
