24th February 2017

Good evening everyone,

First of all thank you everyone who messaged me on Facebook or emailed or sent me an SMS message with birthday wishes. For those of you that sent me money towards a new kitten, thank you, the money is being kept safe by my sister until I find the right one.

Yesterday was a tad breezy to say the lease though not as wet as I expected, Doris Day was an eventful one, again, Facebook and Twitter followers already know about this, I got stuck between a car and a wall, I totally misjudged it, the car was leaning towards the road and I hadn't looked at the tyres, I couldn't go back or forward, I ended calling the police, twice they asked for the registration of the car, they couldn't get there head round why I couldn't get off the scooter...

Eventually two lady Police Officers arrived and my first words to them were "I bet this is a first for you?", well it was for me as well. They PNC'd the car, registered across the river in Carmarthenshire I think they said, I think they said it SORN and no tax and insurance as well. My immeadiate response was get it towed! Apparently its not as easy as that...

Eventually an old friend and a lad I was in college with managed to bounce the car sideways enough so I could move forward and out, I was getting cold sitting there. A plus side to getting stuck was twelve new unrecorded memorials.

Today was a different day altogether, down to the flat washing on, shower meet council (got nowhere!) meet some good mates for Friday breakfast, back to flat, washing out, next load in - washer won't turn on. Tried again, nope its died, can anything else go wrong this year, it feels like I'm having my own 2016 celebrity die off. On the plus side the sun was shining and the Lesser Celendines are flowering, that means its warming up - alledgedly. I popped into town and picked up a couple of new toys for Missy before heading back to my sisters and a bit of maintence and sorting out in the sunshine. I fitted replacement air horns, new lights on the front and the new Britax beacon to the rear of the scooter, I just need to fit one to the rear of the trailer now,  not sure how to do that one yet.

Anyway hopefully another bright day tomorrow to help cheer me up.
