The weekend started off well with a parcel from the lovel Catherine of Potter Jotter blog fame. Catherine saw my picture of my utility ware and hearing that I was in need of more yelllow came to my rescue with a jug she had going spare! Isn't blogland amazing! Thank you so much Catherine - its lovely . I'll take a picture soon when I have it incorporated with all my other bits.
I had a great day yesterday at the Apples and Pears fair in Nottingham despite standing outside for 6 hours in the snow. It was my first encounter with thermal leggings and won't be my last! It was too cold to get pictures of the fair as my hands ceased to function properly and anything needing fine motor skills became difficult.
I spent the evening thawing out and decided to go to the harley Gallery at the Welbeck Estate near Worksop where they were holding their Christmas market. This is always a good event with lovely quality items. Unfortunately the scene below confronted me when I returned to my car.
Mine is the Ka surrounded front,back and both sides with other cars - 3 to the front one either side and 3 behind. I wasn't the only one in this position - talk about the "squeezed middle" - I wasn't going anywhere until somebody decided they had had enough of the beautiful farm shop, the garden centre, the restuarant, the open studios etc. The estate is large and "nobody has responsbility for the parking" was the response when I phoned for help! With no tannoy system I could do nothing but wait until a couple turned up to the car behind after an age, by which time you can only imagine my mood! I did ask sweetly whether they always park so considerately and chuntered to myself as they loaded up their car with buggy, child, purchases etc in their own time. Imagine my horror as I sat waiing for them to reverse out when I saw somebody coming straight into the same space! I bolted out of the car just in time to prevent a repeat.
Is it me? Why do people behave like sheep? Why wouldn't anyone in the third row actually notice that they had all trapped those in the middle? And when I challenged the driver - "well everyone else was doing it"! Well that's alright then!
