I ALWAYS buy a ticket when I park my car, either for work or leisure.
I bought my ticket this morning, placed the ticket the right way up on the dashboard, went in to work, then returned to a PENALTY CHARGE NOTICE on my car....and a ticket on the dashboard that was upside down....I am guessing that it flipped over when I closed the door.
I KNOW that it is my responsibility to ensure it is the right way up...but it WAS when I left it...and I still have the ticket.....GGRRRRRR.
When I tried to access the local council website re PCN challenges it couldn't find my PCN there....and it wouldn't let me proceed with the challenge...but I have the PCN and the ticket here in my hand......so I'm not ABLE  to challenge it because of their system.....GGGRRRR.
I feel so angry because I DID and always DO pay.

So far so good!

Found my followers but the display is a bit peculiar.......will crack this!

I'm not sure where it is..............

When I tried to spruce up my blog recently I decided to try a new template and 'look'...and in doing so I deleted my 'followers' list, although I do dislike the term followers, and prefer blog friends. I can't find it to put it back and gave up on changing the blog when it seemed that you could have all sorts of bells and whistles and doodads, and I decided to leave things as they were. It has been on my mind to give it a go though, so  I really would like to have a 'side bar' (hope that's the right term) of blogs I read and will perhaps have another go at sprucing things up....if you do read my blog how would you feel about following it? and being on the side bar? I will not let the technology beat me!

Happy days.....

Just like a junkie after a fix, I feel better now.
The reason?
This afternoon I held my grand daughter and she smiled at me.
It was a proper, I can see you, I know who you are, smile.
Heart - full.

The mister is smitten.

My first attempt at baby slippers.

Happy days indeed.

Not a sign of madness.....just a way to be........

I  always like to get January out of the way. Makes me feel better about the coming year.
How I feel about things or how I see things is often pictorial in my mind...for instance...going to work is a little like having to repeatedly climb up and over a giant toblerone shaped object...up and down and up and down and up and down until each week is behind me......or going up a ladder that never ends.
In February I like to mentally focus on how I anticipate the rest of the year and it looks a little like  'climbing, on your hands and knees, across the high swaying rope bridge' of the year, and inching forward, with each little movement becoming easier and moving you towards standing up, being in sunshine, and feeling better about getting to the other side. If there is another side....and if I am granted another year. We are all on shifting sands aren't we?


Just for now.
