Some people …


I normally park my car in the small parking area across the road from the house. We have a drive and a garage, but like many garages it’s more of a storage area than a place to park a car. So K*** parks her car on the drive and I use the parking area. K*** … Continue reading Some people …

Is it a trust thing ?


It’s something (among many others) that really winds me up. People who over-guard their shopping. I’ll explain. Some people, and the numbers seem to be increasing, will place their goods on the check-out conveyer and then stand with it.

Then they do … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Busy busy busy …

I think it lasted just over a week, before I began to struggle to say anything at all. So that fell by … Continue reading Having a moan and other things …
