Gee whizz how time flies since last April when I last updated this website. Unfortunately I have been using my Facebook page more than this website.
So much has been happening I cannot tell it all in this one page. I will try and give as much info as poss.
At the moment a lot of effort is going into Gwendolyn's wedding in Florence at the end of the month. Since she got engaged last year Jason and ben has gotten engaged and planning weddings. So more weddings to come.
Altiough I am not opening my garden for the National Garden Scheme this year. The The garden is taking up much time and is still not completely planted for this year. A lot of weeds needs to be taken out and time is scarce especially as I have resumed boating since last July. I now have Powerboat level two (tidal), kayaking and a radio licence to add to my dingy and day skipper licences, both national and international. Diving has had to take a back seat this year as there is a possibility of heart problems, which is being checked out. So I am waiting to get my diving medical, but the bureaucracy of the NHS is holding it up. So annoying.
I decided against getting involved in the Walthamstow Art Trail as they almost doubled the entrance fee. And as I am not a professional artist it did not seem to be worth it, even though it would add to the village status. I am getting very disheartened by the way the present Labour Council is forcing, in a despicable way, the whole of Waltham Forest to have Car Parking Zones (CPZ). It is just a money making exercise against car owners. They are also putting double yellow lines in as much places so as to discourage car ownership. If they had included it in their manifesto and got voted in I would not be so outraged. It seems like the Labour party which was born in injustice is now dishing out injustice and there is nothing anyone can do about it as the law is designed to be on their side. Also no one is prepared to stand up tho them as they see it as a minor thing in a whole lot of other more pressing things to fight against. What they forget is that when the whole area is under CPZ the price will rocket as it has under almost all Labour boroughs. Islington at one time was free and now for a small car it is around £125. The family unit is also dispersed as family members with cars cannot come and go as it use to. In the long term this will bad for the area. Local businesses will also suffer as more and more customers go to large supermarkets like Tesco or Sainsbury. Also gardens are being dug up to park cars. Still you cannot tell these new breed of career politicians and if the public will not stand up to them there is nothing else to do, but suffer it. These politicians will eventually learn the hard way.
All for now bye.
