Just started reading the latest edition of the excellent and inspiring newsletter of Veerle Pieters. In her intro she says:
[…] Each bicycle ride was in boring grey skies and usually wet, dirty greasy muddy roads. Excellent times to test out bike cleaning tools and soaps :)
That made me smile, as I – a second before that – just thought who dull and grey it is outside during the last days or weeks and how I dislike this.
Good, that Veerle reminded me of what I often tell people: there is something positive in anything shit/negative. For Veerle it is, that she can test out her bike cleaning tools and soaps because of the shitty weather. That is the right attitude to go with ;)
