Beer Baccy & Crumpet party, who lives just a short walk from where I do.
Although Ray is going to have to rename the party now, as the Electoral Commission have banned the use of the word 'Crumpet'. Apparently 'Crumpet' is demeaning to women, though all I ever see when I Google the word are images like this. Try it yourself if you don't believe me...
Nevertheless, the Electoral Commission, in their collective wisdom, have decided that 'Crumpet' shouldn't appear on ballot papers if there's the even the slightest risk of offending somebody, somewhere in the UK.
A classic case of 'Political Correctness gone mad', if you ask me...

I booked the MOT test this morning, leaving plenty of time to get things sorted out, but the test is still a couple of days away. That means I will be anxiously chewing my finger nails for the next 48 hours or so, hoping that everything will be OK again this year.
Claudia still drives nicely and I haven't found anything wrong today, but there's always that little doubt. Not least about whether the MOT tester is in a good mood or not. Though in theory that shouldn't matter.
It even extended to moving all the chests of drawers in the bedroom and hoovering behind & underneath them.
After I had done that I juggled their position slightly and re-introduced another chest that was stored in the spare room. It just about fits and is tighter than I would like, but I needed the extra storage space in the bedroom.
