In my previous post today I was going to tell you all about the marvellous experience of applying for a Driving License! What a palaver – off I drove (yep) to Hauppauge (yes – that is a place and it is pronounced Hop-Ogg) with the filled in form to apply for my learners permit.… Continue reading Things I forgot to Tell You
OK then folks, the time has come for me to mention the Christmas. I was wondering whether to go all out for the “Real Tat” look or just stick to the usual “Understated & Tasteful”.
