I got the big bike out today, for a trip to Old Amersham. First, the hospital for my regular 3-monthly blood test, and to visit the library there, where I picked up five books. Then on to the barber; they've been there for 150 years, but it's the first time I've visited this barber. Snip snip snip; no fuss, no bother, and I came out with my annual haircut.
The barber suggested that I might make it twice a year, but I explained that this would be silly, because it would mean that I'm be getting a haircut for winter, whereas by having it once a year, it's a haircut in time for summer.
