Wow, what a great start to the weekend! – NOT!
Firstly a(nother) speeding summons through in the post. This time it was in Daventry last Wednesday – 35 in a 30 limit! From what I recall, it was a mobile speed camera van. Uniquely, there seems to be an option whereby you the offender MAY be offered a ‘Driver Safety Workshop’ for 60 pounds and the benefit is you don’t get any points on your Licence. You can’t request this option, as there’s a strict set of (undisclosed) criteria that allow Northamptonshire Ticketing Office to determine whether it’s offered as an alternative. Here’s hoping!
The strange thing was, the Road Angel didn’t give any warning. I’ll be speaking with them next week. Ironically, they are based in Daventry!
Next, I managed to scuff an alloy (front nearside) parking in town, whilst we were out shopping for a mirror for the single bedroom and a picture for the ‘Den’.
..and when I took the car into Kwik-Fit to have the alloy swapped for spare ‘good’ one, I found that both tyres needed replacing!! Argghhhh!
On a more positive note, we look like we’ve found a suitable venue for ‘afternoon tea’ event for my 50th. The Corn Exchange in town.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
