I received a letter today from the DVLA. (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority) I had to apply for renewal of my driving licence. As in March, if I last that long, I am 70 years old. In this country you have to do this.
So I went online and filled in a very lengthy questionnaire. One of the questions asked was could I see well enough to comply with the law. Yes.
Did I wear glasses to be able to do this? No.
This did not match with their previous information....... Now there was nowhere on this b****y form to say I have now had 2 cataract replacements. I have 20/20 vision. So I fully expect problems having done battle with the DVLA on a previous occasion.
A lengthy story which would take too long to go into now. But I won the battle and regained my independence which is what my 4 wheels give me. I do hope not to have to go through all that again. At least I have 2 months to do any battles in. Last time they just removed my driving licence without telling me until I was written off in an accident and my insurance company had to tell me. It all got sorted and there were apologies....Please not again. The DP said I should have just said yes I have to wear glasses. But thats lying. And I don't do lies. Rant over.
I read today about BLUE SPACE. Worth Googling. Its about visiting the sea watching the sea and how much good it does for you, also includes inland water.
So I went for my Blue Space.
Fishing boat leaving the harbour.
Lobster boat returning.
Container boat on the horizon. Off to unload onto an oil rig. Precarious looking stacks!
A solitary Oystercatcher.
Back to the Shedudio.
Progress on painting the 4.
Also felt it time to sort out the shop on my facebook page, Buchan Birds and Beasts. So had to measure some of the mounted ones. Also checking on how people can pay for the ones they want to buy. Always asked for BACS payment (Bank transfer), but then remembered I do have a Paypal account. So big sort out.
Always something driving me on....
