    As a word lover I loved your "horde" and "hoard" wording. :)

    You probably know this but it's worth a mention. Birmingham has 'average speed cameras' along it's major 'A' roads, they are not obvious and do work, netting the council £250k in their first month. That scheme has been expanded, not sure if it has reached W Brom but I'm sure Sandwell District Council will be happy to cash in. Safe bet, keep speed down and stay clear of bus lanes. It's very tempting on the 'Black Country' ring road to push it, when I was with the AA I would sit in the overpass and watch the cameras going off.

    I'm up & down to London so often Harrison I am acutely aware of bus lanes...however I didn't see anything that led me to believe this was a bus lane...they've sent me two photos which show my car and on the road there is.a sign about 25 yards in front of me which spells out 'bus gate' in dull yellow letters and it's upside down...I will definitely have a look when I'm next there

    I gathered from your other posts that you frequent London so I guessed you were clued up. It was more to point out that we're crafty buggers up here and hide the signs ;) If it was upside down I would contest it (unless you were on the wrong side of the road and that's why it looked upside down... just kidding :happy::happy:)

    Could it be used as evidence in your defense? Since it was obviously upside down at the time.

    As a human I am "supposed" to eat 5 servings of fruits or vegetables each day.

    At the same time, I am "supposed" to get out, get some exercise, and get some sunshine Vitamin D.

    How I am "supposed" to do both -- eat all those fruits and vegetables every day and still get out anywhere and do anything, no one has yet bothered to explain to me. ;)

    P.S. If I move to the little town I will have to re-learn Mountain. It is similar to American but not really. :)

    Good luck.
    Taking your own photos should be effective.
    Could you have a dash cam as well when you return?
    I’ve proved something else before with photos. To prove it didn’t fit in with the law.
    I am rooting for you.

    Yes I know what you mean. It can happen for no real reason. Hope you have perked up and are back to normal. Great readings as always.

    I find it's a very challenging balancing act too. I have lost as much weight as I want to. I weigh every day to check I've not lost more. I never in a million years thought I would be in this boat after being overweight most of my adult life!

    Morning...up early I have to be ready for British Gas...exciting times (although not as adrenalin charged as bin day)… a leaking radiator in the kitchen means we have no hot water and no pressure in the boiler...it is a five hour time slot between 8am-1pm no doubt they'll arrive at 12:59 precisely...oh I need this coffee...woke to a 5.7

    Thanks jjaark the 'bus gate' is on this site with many complaints about how they implement the scheme...I can appeal & go to the adjudicator however I'd have to go all the way to West Bromwich to do that...it would be far cheaper to pay the fines & have done with it...I'll mull that over for a while.

    8.6 this morning at 5 am

    I think this pack of testing strips loves the 8’s

    Warm already outside.

    Sun out and blue skies.

    Making aprons again today. I don’t wear skirts any more. So, they make ideal aprons. My skirts were ankle length, so plenty of fabric. When I am painting my pictures I have this knack of wiping my hands on the back of my jeans, and consequently I am running out of decent jeans to wear.

    So, wraparound aprons I am making. Each one is a different design depending on availability of fabric. Sitting on my thatched swing to do these. Handsewing them. More relaxing. Obviously hems are already sewn and a couple of other bits. And just cutting them out how my muse takes me that morning.

    So, instead of Granny sewing on her rocking chair in the porch sewing, you have Granny on her thatched swing in the garden sewing...with a helpful cat who thinks my clothes on my lap are for lying on...

    Have a good day...
    Take care...

    Hugs for the waiting...
    I ‘love’ their time slots...
    Hope it is easily sorted and he/she has all the parts they need on the van.

    Good morning

    5.6 today. Anything in the 5s is good in my book.

    New airconditioning finally installed in bedroom so a much nicer night's sleep last night.

    Have a great day everyone
