Yes, it’s Saturday again, and the end of the working week. As I set off to work I will do so knowing that I have a day without supervision (the owner has swapped days and is off today) and several regulars booked in with appointments.
I’m sorry about the abrupt end to yesterday’s post but I woke up with eighteen minutes to go and had to get into action quickly to preserve my record of daily posting. There was no time for elegance, just select an existing image and a few tags before publishing.
If you look at the comments you will notice that Lavinia, Rick and the cats are currently OK, but still ready to move at short notice. Good luck to them all.
I’m writing before leaving because I am going out tonight. It’s against my will, but I’m having to be sociable. Let’s face it, being sociable is against my normal inclinations too, but I am under orders from Julia.
Sadly, I think I just ran out of things to say. I have a lot on my mind this morning and the words are not coming easily. There’s nothing bad on my mind, just remembering to take certain things to work and wondering if there will be a parking space when I get there. The optician’s staff and hairdresser’s clients all seem to think, for instance, that our parking spaces are fair game.
When I win the lottery I’m going to rent 12 cars for a week and park them in the spaces used by people who habitually abuse our spaces.
Money, in case you are wondering, will definitely not make me a nicer person. I’ll just be the same old grouch but will be able to afford more books have a butler to wake me in time to finish my blog posts properly.
I wonder if your butterfly is of the same variety as the one featured in one of Derrick’s latest posts? Quite a coincidence, if so.
Anyway, hopefully your Saturday evening passed without incident.
Yes, it was a pleasant evening, and quite uncrowded. I will have a look for Derrick’s butterfly.
I’m not an expert on butterflies!
Glad the evening was pleasant.
Your butler will probably be able to make a lot of money by publishing a lurid memoiir about you.
If he could, I’d be so proud to be seen as lurid at my age…
Good luck finding a parking space!
There was one space left, just wide enough for me! 😉
Can anybody clamp a vehicle?
I believe this is true, but probably more trouble than it’s worth.
I think you are right on both counts. Just thought I’d ask. A warning of clamping might perhaps help.
One of the shops tried it, but everything became rather argumentative as their staff are among the worst offenders.
