I have been trying to upload a particular image for over a week now and it is becoming rather soul destroying. So in order to express my frustration I have uploaded this image instead.

Thank you so very much to all of you for your very flattering and kind comments following yesterdays upload.

The optician appointment which I thought I was going to yesterday, is in fact scheduled for today at 12:30. "What a 64 Carat Plonker I am"

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Thank you once again for all your wonderful comments and messages.

Regards Nathan

Thought I was the only one who arrived early (or late) for appointments. Once took my husband to the exhibition of the entombed warriors at the British Museum a week early! Another time I organised a friend to pick us up a day late from Heathrow following a trip to Australia& Vietnam! We waited & waited for him. Got him out of bed to come & get us. Unfortunately he had the piece of paper I had given him! I was wrong.
This is a very lived in shoe, well spotted & taken
