Saturday 3 December 2011: snugly
I returned from a quick trundle to Toolstation and Screwfix to find that my bicycle was no longer welcome in the house, with access to its usual wall in the dining room having been blocked by boxes of the books which had been removed from the bookshelves in the same room which were scheduled to be moved into the other room at some point during the day, requiring brick-fastening sleeve anchors to be acquired to fix the bookshelves to the wall securely enough to withstand mild low-level exploration by the wingpiglet in addition to the padlocks required to get the shed into a state in which in which I would be happy to leave the bicycles locked overnight, with a lock for the garden gate also being required to enable the bicycles to be taken from shed to street and back without having to trundle them through the house (or, equally inefficiently, undo the garden gate from the inside, put the bike on the front path, return through the garden gate, bolt it from the inside then walk back through the house). After moving the sheds so that they rested more on the platform than the installation entities were able to achieve I did the outside-based door-locking enablements whilst my dad had fun with drills and walls and anchors. All two active bicycles and Nicky's bike are now in the shed. A little tipping and tilting is required to get them under the lintel but it's nothing that an additional couple of things to the list of planned modifications won't fix.
