Friday again...

Had one of my NHS meetings yesterday; just as well they refund my traveling costs, as it costs me a little under £20 in taxis to get there & back. This is because all the car drivers moaned about not having good parking in Clarendon Road [they were all there on time incidentally, so what were they bellyaching about?] and they shifted the venue to bloody Trumpington. They had a new form to fill out which asked for your bank account number, which is fine.  You'd think they'd go ahead and do a bank transfer, wouldn't you?  It's taken over 3 weeks and they posted me a cheque.  Brilliant, huh...  WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING MY BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS, YOU CRETINS????  Now i've got to go down and bank the damn thing and wait approx 5 days for it to clear!  *grumble, mutter, foment*

There was a Recycling Event in the Grand Arcade this lunchtime - we had an email saying would we come in and brandish newspapers and then put them in the provided blue bins, while they took pictures.  The Mayor kindly came and blew a whistle for us to wave the papers and then again for us to dispose of them.  i spoke briefly to him later and thanked him for taking the time.  Nice bloke.
We had quite a decent turn out and i'll be interested to see the photographic results.  If you can see me, i'll see if i can show you.
i took advantage of the time and had some prawn sticks in the Market again, lovely...and had a milkshake to take my pills.  i'm sure it was caramel flavoured, not the chocolate i asked for, but what the hell, it was cold and wet.
Speaking of which, it has been the greyest of grey days the last few, not a lot of actual rain.  More like the occasional drizzle.  It did rain briefly after i got home but has stopped again now.  i guess this is the sort of weather that makes England's 'Green And Pleasant Land'.   i wish it wasn't grey though, it can get depressing.
i set-to and put a load of washing in, while i picked up and washed the floors.
So, some non-depressing pictures for you!  Oh ho, is it going to let me??
Let's see if doing the edit-thing works again...  No.  For whatever reason, it's not letting me post pictures.  Change to HTML - got one up.  Separate post for the others?
This amazing set of steps is in Venice.

I love the book steps... they are both gorgeous and kind of sad (thinking of all the books getting ruined, or that are already ruined).

I love that staircase and the ear thing!
