Oh dear, I am worried I have included too many challenges that are rather more than the work of a day. Learn a language, learn an instrument, write a story, knit a pair of socks, learn to ride a unicycle…. what was I thinking of!? It was funny when it was just a list of words!
Now I am sitting at home on a miserable rainy day, surrounded by a Czech phrasebook, a ukulele, a unicycle, and a baffling array of knitting apparatus… and no idea what to do with any of them! Where to start?!!
I can lend you a unicycle!
Oh just read that you have a unicycle. Do you need someone to teach you how to use it?
Hi Caroline, lovely to hear from you. Yes I have borrowed on, and have been trying with you-tube videos but not much luck so far! I imagine it is just a case of practicing and falling off a lot. Can you ride one then?! Any other suggestions??
Hi Caroline, not me – I only learnt to bicycle no hands a couple of years ago – a feat which i am inordanantly proud of. My son went to a school where practically all the children had uni cycles – apparently it’s very good for concentration and learning to read! It was a very strange sight to see 50+ kids unicycling round the playgroud. Anyway that was about 15 years ago but we still have a unicycle in the shed. I seem to remember Alex was quite bruised and battered one term. I think it was due to uni cycling. Anyway if you are in York (current location of son) anytime soon I am sure he’d be happy to give you a lesson.
Enjoying reading your exploits, laughed at the no shouting day. I think you did awfully well with only 4 shouts!
