Time, tide and MS

Well they wait for no man and the time came to apply for my disabled (hate that word) parking permit. Got a letter last week to say it was approved!!! now give us £20. That is a worthwhile sum to pay so I do not have to walk so far and my wife won’t spend so long looking for a parking place that allows me to get out and into her car.
Had to have a copy of my passport certified and a good friend who I have knowns more than 30 years did the honours (doesn’t hurt he also put his rank of Superintendent down)

@watsoncraig £20 is that the going rate all over Scotland, as it’s only £10 in Gods County.

Think you have that wrong as its £20 here in God’s Country, might be cheaper in lesser countries! 🙂

@watsoncraig and on the Eighth Day god looked down on his planned paradise and realised that he wanted Beauty and Loyalty so he created SOUTH YORKSHIRE.

I’m so glad you’ve got the ticket. Our comes from the local council and costs£10 for 3 years.I’ve no longer got the car (long story but should all be resolved next year) but the blue badge is very useful if someone else takes me out, they are pleasantly surprised when I tell them they can park on double yellows and don’t need to pay! There have to be some advantages to being disabled! By the way, I moved to Stoke 55 years ago, but the ex other half still referred to me as (the southerner) cos I was born and brought up in Surrey!

@watsoncraig told you that it’s no bother up here 😉

Did you Know that you can use it as 🆔 for internal UK 🇬🇧 flights, too?

Pop into Falkirk library on a Tuesday or Thursday and they do your national entitlement card on the spot, which acts as your bus pass for Scottish national travel amongst other things, your blue badge automatically qualifies you! 😘

Don’t know if they have the same thing in sassenach country, though?

Give me five minutes.
I’ve not had it that long…..
They have many problems understanding me in this part of newly conquered Kent as they only understand Chathameez or hybrid cockney!
