after paying for 4 hours.
They are charging me £100 as a fine!
If I pay fast, I need only pay £60 - the bastards!
The car park had 2 other cars parked there when I arrived and they were still there when I left, all the rest of the car park was empty!
AND I'm back in at work on Tuesday too - double bummer lol
My scrappy happy hexi quilt is certainly taking shape now - though I lost the plot on colour stripes on the right side, but I can live with that.
I had a bit of help to get it finished -
I have hand quilted across the horizontal hexi lines in a zig zaggy manner and was going to keep the sides straight, but now I see it this way, I don't much care for it, so have some unpicking to do - when I find my seam ripper!
I will keep the castellated hexi effect down the sides and am stitching a reverse hexi edging to avoid having to bind the higgledy piggledy edges.
Harvey is doing well, desperate to go outside but I'm still keeping him indoors although no longer confined to my bedroom.
Its been a lovely summer break but I am really dreading the winter and can feel the downer of dark days already lurking behind my shoulders.
I haven't done that much but have had both grandkids quite a lot, so its hardly been a relaxing break lol
Jack and I have been looking for the Amy Johnson Moths, thankfully they are around the city and beyond until March next year, so we have time to see most of them in their exhibition places.
Tried to get granddaughter interested in them too but she only had eyes for her Mum -
My daughter took us a picture of one in London on a recent trip which helps us too.
I was given a 1/16th scale dolls house that was in disrepair, so painted it up quite simply for Evie, for her little pony toys.
I have another beef and I know some others amongst you have had similar issues.
Windows 10 did an update which took hours and hours and several stop n starts, before I could use the laptop again.
And now, half the things I use aren't there any more and I cant find things the way I did before - so frustrating!
I don't mind change if I am told about it but it infuriates me when something works fine for me and then, its altered to suit the whizzy computer folks out there lol
Clearly I'm in training to be a grumpy old woman and
I'm sure to get the bloody job!!
