Spotlight has a sale on today and Bex wants me to go and get her a King Size Mink Blanket. She has a Playcenter meeting, so she can't go herself.
I don't mind as I want to pick up a blue seersucker tablecloth I saw there yesterday. I'm going to use it to cover that cute little wingback chair.
It will only be a throw over cover of course. I am in the process of making head and arm rests cloths for it too...
ABOVE: there ya go... now it's clear McDreamy is bigger than Lemony. And so much cuter too.
Right, I better pull finger and get into gear. Don't want to miss out on one of those Mink Blankets for Bex...
ABOVE: the tablecloth I just got. I have just draped it over the chair for now... I will have a go at making it 'fit' on better after I've done the housework.
Question: If you were in a carpark, let's say at Spotlight this morning, and you watched a man drive into the Disabled Carpark right beside the door, get out with his wife, and see them both WALK with no obvious disability at all, into the shop ... what would you do?
I kinda walked up to them and said "Just where is your wheelchair? You are parked in the Disabled Carpark you wanker!"
He totally ignored me, like I wasn't there at all. I was so angry I wanted to hit him. What a jerk.
We do have Disabled Permits that are issued to people who need them, and they did not have one.
These two people CLEARLY had NOTHING wrong with them. If they were disabled, it was in their heads.
I did walk around their car before saying something, as did a couple of other people.
I was not the only person there who was annoyed with them.
Their 'attitude' was obviously screaming 'Whatever' as they sauntered into the shop.
OK... MAYBE the driver was disabled IN SOME WAY... but he didn't display a Disabled Permit, he was ignorant and arrogant when confronted about parking there, and Dee, if I'd thought of that, I would have done it.
Lesson Learnt? Don't post about this sort of stuff again.
So, I've just completed cleaning the kitchen bench and the extractor fan. It took me 2.5 hours! In between, I did 3 loads of washing, hung it out, and ate about 30 jelly beans.
*sigh* Stress does nasty things to my head.
Funny how one ill advised thing I did can cause so many haters to crawl out of the woodwork! I have never said or implied that I was PERFECT. Of course I make mistakes and when I do... I acknowledge them.
ANON: I'm not going publish your comment, as I consider what I posted was probably not a good idea, and have drawn a line under it, and it is done. Maybe I was in the wrong, but at least I tried to stand up for what I believed was right.
BLOODY HELL! I've been sitting here pondering that unpublished Anonymous comment, where he/she said they got a Disability Permit because he/she had two broken toes.
Hmmm... I know for a fact that :
A) You would not be ALLOWED to drive if you had two broken toes, and...
B) You would not be granted a Disability Permit to cover the 6-8 weeks you were unable to walk properly.
How do I know this? Because I TOO HAVE HAD TWO BROKEN TOES!!! AND I was banned from driving for 6 weeks. So clearly, it would have been pointless applying for a Disability Permit.
(I had surgery to break and straighten two Hammer Lock Toes)... in case you were wondering. I still have the two metal rods they shoved down the middle of each toe to keep them straight. Ikkkk. Wanna see them? ...
ABOVE: they don't look that big, but OMG, I'd rather give birth to a baby than have those shoved down the middle of me toes for 6 weeks! Every time I knocked them I was instantly in AGONY. I shudder remembering how awful it felt, and that is easily 14 years ago now.
JUDITH: thanks, I will.
AND I have copied and published the Anon comment as I think it came from the same person who left a disparaging comment this morning too.
LYNDA: good points, I did not know you could get a short term D/Permit. But back to today, the male driver of that car had no physical disability that I or the other people near me could see. We were ALL annoyed at his bloody arrogance.
End of Day: well today's post got a bit side tracked from the 'norm'. Sorry about that.
I will be a bit more circumspect with what I divulge I think!
Anyway, not too bad a day here in the house. I got carried away with housework, but that's not a bad thing really.
