There’s a bright yellow child’s helmet on offer at Sainsbury’s at the moment at £5.99 instead of £11.99. You’ll collect 10 Nectar points off it, and can Click and Collect for free, or £3.95 for standard delivery.
I was going to sit here and wax lyrical about looking forward to a weekend of cycling down the canal, taking a trip to our nearby farmers market, maybe buying organic eggs, heading home via Starbucks for my favourite coffee, and making a delicious breakfast and enjoying it out in the garden.
Then I was going to tell you how much I love cycling with my daughter and knowing that she’s nice and safely protected by a helmet just adds to the fun, and how great this weekend is going to be.
The truth, however, is that it’s been raining so much, we are more likely to find the canal running through our house, and the bikes haven’t even come out the shed yet. Alas. This is summer.
Which is probably why Sainsbury’s are trying to get rid of these ‘eye catching yellow’ helmets. Apparently, these are adjustable to fit head sizes 52cm to 56cm, and have vents to keep a child’s head cool. They comply with European safety standards, are made of EPS and PVC, and are suitable for ages 10 – 16 years.
If you go for a cycle, enjoy and do so safely. We’ll be sitting on the sofa watching the seedlings drown.
