Safely delivered

Well the painting of Aysgarth Falls has been safely delivered to the new owners, I hope it gives them as much pleasure as it has to me in the five years that I have had it hanging in my dining room. The trip to deliver it gave me an opportunity to try out a SatNav system that I won at auction on Tazbar the soft spoken lady seemed to have a different idea to me as to what would be the best route when I programmed in the destination the night before. So, I only turned it on when I was at the bottom of the M3, a bit later on she kept trying to get me to turn off, obviously trying to get me to use the A3, she tried again on a couple of exits near Staines and a couple of times on the M40. I did however let her have her wicked way with me as we got near the destination, and have to confess it was a lot easier with her dulcet tones telling me to go left and right and found my destination with ease, shame it doesn't sort out an empty parking spot though.

The day before, I had a van driver back into my car, fortunately not a lot of damge, but his comment, "I saw you, but thought you had gone" was priceless! I guess sorting that out this week, will scupper my painting plans, then it's Christmas, aah well, will get the brushes wet again soon I hope.
