Quick update and pics of Elijah

Goodness, it's been a while since I posted. I can't believe how fast the time is going. I have been making lots of progress on my goals and have finished my pif and the summer house exchange. However, both partners are going to have to remain a little patient while I await the mailman bringing extra goodies to send with them both. So for obvious reasons, I cannot post pics as yet. I have made a start on the biscornu exchange too and am half way though the challenges. So much secret stitching.

I am trying to remain calm at the moment as we are havign a tough old time of things lately. One such incident that is "testing" us at the moment is to do with a car park ticket. Yes you heard right. We bought a ticket and put it in the car and during our time around the shops Elijah started getting a little niggly so dh went back to the car to try and settle him. Unbeknown to him, the wind blew the ticket over under his tomtom so it couldn't be seen. When we went back to the car a man was writing out a ticket for us. When he realised we did have a valid ticket he said he still had to write it out as he would be done for "taking a bribe". He did write on it though that we did have a valid ticket and assured us that we would not get a fine. We did get a fine. My husband refused to pay it. They sent a bigger fine. Now my dh is prepared to go to court. The company in question is called "Excel" parking. Yes I will name and shame them! They do this to people all the time and are making a packet! My dh is standing his ground as he still has the ticket in question. I hate it when unrighteous companies try to steal from good, honest people. It makes me so mad!! Anyway, rant over.

And now for some pics of Elijah taken at six months last week:

It is really difficult getting good pictures of him as he stops smiling as soon as the camera flashes. I think he is camera shy.
Have a good week everyone. xx

What great photo's of Elijah!

Oh Excel, I know all about them too. Most of the car parks in this area are run by them. I know a lot of people who have been fined by them when they had a valid ticket.
