Intermission ...

... from the holiday postings 'cos 'real life' has got in the way! Mother's Day on Sunday (or more, catching up with laundry etc).  Nice British Gas heating engineer, repairing boiler to give us hot water back, on Monday and yesterday ... a 'Dad' day and an evening out with mates! Today it's car insurance quotes and tax man query, although it looks as though I've got to wait on another tax code notice to arrive. Seems, because I'm coming off of Self Assessment it's confused 'em and I'm going to be having a variety of tax codes for each part of my income, because it comes from 3 different sources. Before SA I had one tax code and all my tax was taken from one source - the biggest. Now it seems I might have it taken from all sources so need to be extra vigilant over how much I'm paying ... You'd think I was on a large income instead of a tiny one but the Government certainly ain't gonna get rich on me - *LOL*

Weather has been lovely, if a wee bit chilly, the past few days. Yesterday I had to take Dad for his chiropodist appointment and he told me he was looking forward to the ride out. Conversation moved on, with good weather and ride out, to thinking of places to go through the summer to get him out and about a bit. I asked him if there was anywhere he'd particularly like to go. You could have knocked me down when he came up with the first suggestion - Druscilla's. It seems that he wants to go anywhere where there are animals and somewhere to have a cup of tea and something to eat. Looks as though I shall be hunting out all the local-ish animal places that children like ... farms, wildlife parks etc ... so here's hoping for a good summer so we can do the visits. Reckon we might even have a few little people join us *LOL*!

Thanks for dropping by .....

Summer is a great time for that!

Just letting you know that I've moved my blog, Blahwg! There is a link to the new location on the old page. Might as well UN-follow the old one... I won't be posting there anymore. Didn't want to lose you.
