How was your weekend?
Mine? Glad you asked! Saturday morning was awesome while we celebrated Julius’ birthday!
I made another Lego cake which was delicious and slightly dodgy, but did I mention delicious!?
And today Chance rode his bike and was amazing!!! I got video footage that isn’t loading for me, but gosh I was proud. He resisted it for weeks but literally got on and rode off like a pro and can’t wait to go for another ride tomorrow. Yay!
And this arvo I got to see a dear friend who studied med with Frith and have remained close with ever since. Nearly 10 years Amy!!
And while I was driving Amy to the train station this evening, I was pulled over by a friendly police officer.
Him: “Is there a reason you are driving an unregistered vehicle?”
Him” Your registration ran out in March this year.”
Me: “Aaaaaaaaah yeah. My husband died at the start of the year and I moved down from Rocky and I mustn’t have received the renewal notice.”
He goes back to his car for 10 minutes and comes back.
Him: “Here is a temporary registration to get you home. You have to be home by 6pm tonight blah blah blah…”
Me: “Thank you for that, yes I will.” Phew, I thought!…
Him: “And now for the ugly part. Here is a $403 fine for driving an unregistered vehicle. And here is a $504 fine for driving an uninsured vehicle, since the insurance is attached to the registration.”
Him: “Do you have any questions?”
Me: In my head: Do you have a soul? Out loud: “No.”
So yeah that was my evening! I know he was doing his job blah blah blah. And the way this year is going, I’m just not even surprised. I don’t know how the renewal notice didn’t make it to me with my mail re-direction, but I guess sh*t happens.
And boy does it happen!
