Welcome Layla!

The day I have been waiting for for what seems like weeks finally arrived when there was a knock at the door at 7.30am on Thursday and there was THE box


What a tease when I had to leave for work but at least it had finally arrived safely :)

So after a day spent trying to concentrate on very important things (mostly unsuccessfully) I finally went home to assemble and commence my new addiction.  The assembly was pretty easy, except for the minor panic over a "small peg" which seems to be missing from my wheel, until I realised I have a new model Ladybug but the instructions still refer to the old model, so one phone call and an email later I was sent the new instructions and calmed down to complete the task ....... and she is beautiful.

So I would like you to all meet Layla the Ladybug....


I hope to have many happy hours with her and my only challenge I think will be prising my 7 year old son away as he seems to be spending more time with her and advancing his previously non existent spinning skills quicker than me!

  2. Congrats on the lovely new wheel! Isn't amazing how quickly kids pick up on things. I think it's because their brains aren't stuffed full of years of commercial jingles. LOL
