What the hell is wrong with my maths? Okay - I'm not a genius like OB but I have a very good 'O' level and started maths 'A' level.....had to give it up in the face of incomprehensible algebra, but I gave it a go! Yet again, I've managed to get the pricing wrong on the cards, forgetting comission, the cost of postage from the printers and VAT, and will make a loss if I sell them through Etsy or eBay and break even if I sell them to you for 50p more than I said privately with you paying via Paypal (the friendly way that doesn't cost you). Hopeless and I completely understand if you don't want them at £6.50. M refuses to watch 'The Apprentice' but I can't help still getting a guilty pleasure from watching the unbelievable mix of arrogance and stupidity the 'candidates' display. However, the Sugar Lord would have me in the taxi over this one.
If you do still want the cards (8, not the 4 depicted obviously), please contact me by email at email@example.com and we can do it that way. I'll never be a millionaire, or even a hundredaire quite frankly. I love those red envelopes.
Just a few photos to cover my embarrassment over financial irregularities. Can't resist those Golden Plovers, here showing off their legs:
A shame they're not sharper here but I still like it with the rocks behind:
Snoozing in the sun, now a distant memory as the rain tips down incessantly:
Sadly uprooted but nice to see the beautiful salmon colour of its underside:
Meldon Hill beyond a fir plantation from the moor:
This is a bit bleak but I love it anyway:
One of those Lichens that look like some kind of medical nightmare. I still haven't managed to identify them but they're absolutely fascinating:
The lane is a river at the moment but at least it all runs away pretty quickly. M was driving over the Somerset Levels today and said the fields are already under water. Very worrying.
OB told me that his acting head teacher didn't manage to observe the two minute silence today (he was timing it on his watch obviously), talking after a minute and a half. Shocking. I was painting next door and stood looking at the rain running down the window for two minutes. I always cry.
Right, time to go and hang my business head in shame and prepare for tomorrow when OB is going to Exeter University for a day learning about writing and drawing graphic novels arranged for those on the gifted and talented register. I have to print out a parking permit which only allows me 10 minutes. I wish I could go too. So, until next time, here are those dogs stalking things. have a lovely rest of the week all of you and welcome to a couple of new followers, Humberto and Marie....it's been a while!
