I should have ridden in to uni today, but I’ll take that as lesson learnt. Public transport is great, but not at peak hour when you have two armfuls of heavy stuff to lug around. However, if I didn’t catch the train in and the tram home I would have never discovered how deadly my favourite thongs are when mixed with rain and the black tiles that seem to be all over Melbourne.
So I’m grateful that I wandered around the city barefoot for half the afternoon. I’m glad I didn’t slip and end up on my bum. And even though I was stomping around with a grumpy look on my face I was laughing inside at how silly it was!
Tomorrow I’m wearing sneakers and taking my bike.
