I haven't really had much trouble when it comes to writers' block, but I'm definately in need of some sort of help when it comes to mental blocks.
Today I received my fourth - yes, you read that correctly, fourth - parking fine in six weeks. Now, I haven't had a fine for approximately 10 years, and where I park I need to have paycards for 8 hours each day. So, there are the green ones for 4 units (hours) and the purple ones for 1 unit.
1st fine - dough head here put two purple ones, covering me for a total of 2 hours...
2nd fine - I put one of each, covering me for 5 hours...
3rd fine - was actually for three hours, so put one purple one, yes, you've guessed covering me for 1 damn hour, instead of the required three.
Today, how many did I display? Mmm? Well? Let me see? Yes, that's right NONE!
What the hell is wrong with me? I wasn't early, nor in a rush. All I can put it down to is the fact that my brain, when not at work - ahem - thinks continuously about my newly started book. Arrgh. I'm so annoyed. So, even with the 'pay within three days and get a discount', this now means that in the past six weeks I will have paid £160.00 in fines.
I walked into the house today and said to Rob, "Guess what I did today?"
He smiled and replied, "Got another parking fine?"
Don't you hate it when they think they're so clever?
Nevermind, don't forget to visit my blog on Thursday because I've got a very special 'pick me' competition, which I'd hate you to miss.
