While mavis was in the shower Rod skyped her. Hi ray he said where s mavis. In the shower I said . OK too much information he said. We had a long chat just he and I. He has picked himself up and is stepping forward again. He said he will see me in April or may of next year.
I have got to go to the bank today so I will call in the local art shop and see if I can pick up a couple of Art Boards. I must get started again.
I have had my mi-fi on charge for about 14 hours and it’s still not full. I used the charger from my Ipad. It’s not worked. So I have ordered a 3 mi-fi Charger for it. Hopefully that will cure it. I need it when we are away.
Im glad to see mave is recovered from the weekend away. Fighting fit and raring to go.
Ok so we set off to town and found the camping shop. I needed a new water carrier. But as I walked away from the car I spied a screw sticking out of my tyre.
Oh no. Now do I pull it out and risk a flat. I must have a 100% reliable car to get me to the hospital for mavis. I can’t risk waking up in the morning set to leave at 08.30 am only to find a flat. Ah ha! next door is a Tyre depot. How neat is that. A walk into there. Can I help the man said. Yes I have a bloody great screw sticking out of my tyre. Can you fix it. Yes just bring it in. So I literally drove round in a circle out of one gate into the next. MMM! sorry can’t repair that he said its to close to the edge. It needs a new tyre. OK I said if that’s it a new tyre it is. I’ll just check the rest he said. Oh dear what next I thought. The others are ok but you have a very slight wear on the front. It’s probable that tracking is out. Do you want me to check. Ok then I said reluctantly. So I left it with him and we walked up the town, we had to Bank a check for just under £200. I called in the Art shop. Sorry he said we have a class in progress what did you want. Ok we have a shop further down the town. So off we set again. The art shop didn’t have what I wanted. We then had to get some Spot On for the dog. Then a walk to the Bank and then on to the local butchers, then a walk back to collect the car. It’s all done he said with a smile as we entered the gates. You can Pop into reception . When I popped out I was £ 76.72 lighter. By the time they add new valve, laser alignment, new tyre, a disposal charge it mounts up.
Like the advert says you didn’t expect to be doing that today. So after the vet bill ,the tyre bill ,and a bit in the butchers. I havent got a lot left out of my original £200 quid check. Before I went out I also had to renew the home insurance and tax the van. Its been a painful week.
Right after lunch I got my brushes out and found a small canvas behind my desk. . Wallah! I scetched and started painting first my picture for ages. Its blocked in and as usual looks crap. but its early days yet.
