what a last couple of days

well like the title says i have had a busy few days.
Yesterday well where did that go, all day no lie i was trying to sort out the printer, i was on the phone to kodak trying to get it sorted, then by email, then i tried abit more then finally at 8pm i done it, the computer finally realised what the printer was, and it worked yeh, and you know what it was........ in the end it was just the case i turn the broadband off then on and it worked, if i had realised at the begginning of the day then i could of done everything that i wanted to do.
Well today was definatley better.
 Kids off to school, then me and bear went to little lambs ( toddler group) had a good chat with a few friends, then home had dinner, bear went for a kip, then when the kids got home off we all went and done the food shop ( yes i know but it had to be done at some point), then fish and chips on the way home. Not too bad hey, but still lots more things to do.
For example i still need to send off my driving license to the dvla as the photo has expired, but they want me to give them £20.00 for the pleasure, so its mine and hubbys so £40.00 then i had to pay another £5.00 for the photos so altogether that £45.00, how can that be right. Isnt the tax, insurance and the petrol enough to pay for. Im sure im not the only one to say this.
Anyway enough moaning, what are the rest of you up to........

Have a good weekend, lets hope the sun shines for us all.....


  1. I had to send my licence away to get the photocard renewed too, I also paid an extra £5 to send it special delivery, so £30 for one licence! I agree, we pay too much for the car already and petrol isn't exactly cheap...
    Hope you have a relaxing, sunny weekend! :) x

  2. I hate techie stuff, have had a fight with my printer and the old laptop once....I eventually won the battle, but it was a tough one ;)

    As I don't drive I wouldn't have a clue about fees etc, but that sounds a bit harsh!

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog about the felt makes xx Have a lovely weekend :)

  3. And breathe my lovely! Hope the weekend is a calm and zen place for you all!

  4. Computers and technology really go over my head so your not alone there. I don't drive either so i am unaware of the costs but it is expensive. I am off on my friends hen weekend today i am just hoping my joints hold out i have been laid up and of work for the past 3 days due to them pesky things and i am wearing heels so i am hoping that will help ;-) have a lovely weekend, dee x

  5. Ha the classic turn it off then on again! Works every time!

    Think my licence is due this year, didn't realise you had to pay - what a rip off.

  6. So glad to hear someone else being peeved about having to pay £20 to renew their licence.I had to do it a couple of months ago and was outraged that they demand you renew it but you have to pay the 'admin' fee.Ho Hum..Glad your computer issues are resolved and thanks for popping over to my blog :)xx
