Back in April of this year, I changed the settings on my blog posts to show an excerpt rather than the full post. It was on the advice of someone who was of the opinion that my traffic would increase if I did this. Well after 4 months, it doesn’t seem to have made any difference at all. In fact, it may have even put some people off reading the post if they have to ‘click’ to read. Who knows? So the “Continue reading…” has gone and I’m back to displaying the full post.
Now when I say ‘odd’ I mean they do odd things. Take this morning as an example. We occasionally get drivers who need to turn around and they very occasionally will use our drive to perform their turn. Although why they don’t use the small parking area accros the road, I will never know. It doesn’t happen often, in fact I can’t remember it happening this year. So, when I spotted a white car reversing into the drive, I thought little of it. I went upstairs to bring down the washing and after filling the machine and setting it going, I happened to glance out of the window. It was then I noticed that the white car was still in the drive, some 15 minutes after I first spotted it.
I went out to investigate. The driver was still in the car and was reading a book! I tapped his window and asked him “What are you doing?”. He told me that he was just awaiting his wife who was delivering leaflets further up the road. When I asked why he was in our drive, he replied that he didn’t want to wait on the road as it was on a bend and it was a new car! I couldn’t follow his logic and asked him to move. He told me he wouldn’t be much longer as he could see his wife. His wife then came around the corner, said hello and got into the car. They then drove off without even a thankyou or a ‘bye your leave’.
