It all started out by heading off to have my haircut and a little shopping day out...so after managing to reach the garage to drive away, I realised that I was missing my watch and I feel naked without my watch, I returned to the house and then to the garage to try again to leave. I managed to be on my way and about 15 mins into my travels I realised I had forgotten my sunglasses, so had to squint for the entire day, was not pleasant.
So now comes the odd part, heading to my neighbouring town to have my haircut, singing along to the music that was in my CD player to look ahead to see signs of roadworks ahead, so hence needing to slow down as the sign was saying to travel at 60km's. Now sometimes I will admit that I am a little naughty to when I travel through these areas and do go a little faster then the sign suggests. On this occasion decided to do the right thing, considering I had a Police Officer sitting right on my bumper...so I dropped to the 60 and travelled along, watching people on the opposite side of the road to me go flying by fast. Thinking this is odd, but not wanting a ticket I ventured on, to then my disbelief and heart falling out of me, the lights went on the Police car, meaning pull over...I thought I know I am about to be served a ticket.
The Police officer pulled up alongside and suggested that I go a little faster, at this point I was nearly laughing and had to point out to him that actually I was abiding by the law as there was a sign back further clearly stating 60km's. Would you believe he never saw that sign and thought that I was being silly in the car. He apologised and said that he was incorrect and that I was doing the right thing, that he was having a really bad morning and that he was terribly sorry....LOL.
I mean what are the chances of correcting an officer of the law...my heart returned to normal and I proceeded on to have a good day out.
So if you are still with me and have not fallen off to sleep from reading all of that, I now have 2 fun things to share with you all...the first being a video on how I take photos of my cards.
This has been a long awaited video that some of my readers have been waiting for and I thank you for being so very patient as I saved to purchase my new video camera..I do apologise in advance about my voice...my cold is getting better but is still holding on strong so I am not quite back to being 100%.
If you have any questions that you would like further answered, please leave me a comment, contact me via email or in the ask me a question at the top of my blog and I will try to help you out.
