Expenses, more or less

For the first time in I don't know how long, I managed to collect myself a parking fine yesterday. I'd fed the meter when I parked but then overstayed by an hour, so I wasn't all that surprised to see it. It made me laugh, really, as I made it all the way around the UK without collecting a single one, even though we overstayed in most places, and yet within weeks of being back on my home turf I get caught.

Totally made up for it today though. There were a couple of lilli-pilli trees in my front yard which were growing up into both the telephone and electrical wires leading to the house, and they had to go. My neighbour "knows a bloke" who turned up at eight-thirty on a Sunday morning, chainsaw revving away... I don't think I'm very popular in my street at the moment! And the total cost for having these trees chopped down and removed? Two slabs. Doesn't get much cheaper than that.
