Old for Newish............

The basket on my bike finally broke last week.  It is a very old bike and I am very fond of it.  I purchased it in 1982 when I was a student nurse and used to cycle to and from the hospital.

It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and DH has been waiting for me to decide what he could buy for me, so I asked for a new basket for my bike, please.  My bike is quite old and I am not sure if it is made anymore, so finding the exact basket has been difficult.  We were out shopping this morning in our local town and DH got his eye on a basket in the window of a charity shop.  It was a snip at £10.00.  We were not sure if it would fit, but we decided to take the risk and buy it.  It fits perfectly on the bike and having a handle means if I want to go shopping it will be very useful detaching it . 

 I went out for a bike ride this afternoon to test it out, perfect........ 

We stopped of at the allotment on the way home and picked the last of the beetroot and some onions.
