I must admit, the thought of acquiring a total of NINE points on my Driving Licence hasn’t made me the happiest of people this week. I’ve been nervously waiting for Northamptonshire Ticket office to send me details of either:-
1. The inevitable addition of three points on my Licence for speeding in Daventry a week or so ago, or,
2. The offer of a ‘Drivers’ Safety Workshop’ lasting three hours (The good news with this option, is that the Police DON’T add the three points to your Licence). They nominate you to attend the Workshop, and you CAN’T ask to be considered (although I did!), and the ‘criteria are very strict’ – their words, not mine! Interestingly, they don’t publish the actual criteria.
I’d been out shopping today and came home to the familiar A5 manilla enevlope from Northampton Police sitting on the doormat. Cripes! this is worse than coming home on the day that your ‘O’ or ‘A’ Level results are due…
Time to nervously open the envelope… GULP! Here we go then…
GOOD NEWS! They’ve offered me a place on the Workshop (I must admit, based on friends I had spoken to, I didn’t think there was much of a chance of being offered this!)
Maybe there is some justice after all! 🙂
We went round to Karen and Paul’s for a SUPERB meal. Rosie had prepared the Starter of Prawns in garlic and chilli. This was followed by Karen’s ‘Lamb, slow roasted for hours’ – Beautiful. All finished off with Ann’s superb Greengage Filo pie and Fruit Cheesecake…
..and far too much alcohol too! :))
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’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
