Checking my watch

(no subject)

Just had a rather good swim at the pool in Paignton. I hope the weather improves by next week, would be nice to get in the sea when I am down in Cornwall.
Checking my watch

Swimming £27.50 an hour.

The "rather good swim" also turned out to be a rather expensive swim. We got a £25 parking ticket. Nora forgot to tell me we were in a pay and display carpark... Poor Nora she was mortified. It seems the council own the carpark and the leisure centre is private. Very clever move that, means the council collect revenue from the leisure centre without all the hassle of actually running the place.

Should of checked to see if there are actually any signs saying "Pay and Display" the way we drove in. However just paid the fine on-line so too late to challenge it as insufficiently signposted, which I've successfully done before.

Safely ensconced at North Towers. Curry ordered. Lord North should be home, all be it briefly, around 8pm.

Now let's see where he keeps his best port ;-)
