Today I turn 29. I’m glad that the twenties are almost over. They’ve been up and down. They’ve been happy and sad. They’ve been easy and hard. I’m glad they happened the way they happened, and I’m glad that they are almost totally behind me. Onward and upward, friends!

    Dear Andrea,
    I was absent-mindedly googling some of my most favourite things, which happen to include BIKES and KNITTING. And I found your blog, which is lovely, by the way.
    We seem to have some things in common, and I though it would be sweet to share them with you.
    Other than our love for bikes and yarn, my name is Andrea and my birthday is the 21 August (1983 though, close enough anyway).
    Coincidence indeed!
    I hope this message reaches you in good health and happy yarnin’.
    From Andrea.
    Oh, and I am from Sydney Australia.
