Knitting wool and bus pass !

Hi everyone ,sunny and cold again ,we;ve had more rain overnight .Thus helping the 'drought 'situation ....We had a nice day out yesterday ,I told you I had finished my cardigan with the roundy front ,I found I had nearly a whole ball of wool left ,so rather than waste it, I found a pattern for a little jumper with no sleeves ,so I bought some more wool ,luckily from the same dye lot ...I'd taken the ball band with me ,so there you go another project for my squirrel corner !Maurice had some bussiness to attend to ,so he dropped me off ,in Sainsburys car park ,My first port of call was the council offices ,you see I discovered my bus pass had run out on January 5th ,so since then I have been travelling at half price (which is what pentioners with a pass, pay )illegally ,tereble crime !!Dont tell will you ?I dont want to find myself on Anglia news ,or carted of to the nick for defrauding the bus company .Or worse kicked off the bus ,after a massive shopping spree wandering the roads and lanes ,beside drains and dykes ,thoughout flat reaching Fenland ,...lost one bag lady !!

I was reading through some old e-mails the other day ,and guess what I found ?an e-mail from Jeannette (jottings)she was so helpful when I started my journal ,and would send me all sorts of advice and tips ,she had also sent some lovely graphics and intructions on the use off ,which at the time meant absolutely nothing to me ,so of course I saved them ..only to discover them ,so I felt like you do when you find a pound coin or two in an old handbag!The Teddys I started the entry with, was amongst them ,arent they cute ?So once again Thank you Jeannette . 

Have a great day everyone

Too late Jan......I'm going to tell everyone I see in town this afternoon about your dodgy bus  travelling!!!  Funnnily enough I went into the Post office yesterday for the application form.........depressing!...especially having to have photos taken for it!!   Despite a lousy weather forecast we are having a beautiful sunny spring like day....hope you are too.  Eve

Love the 'Teddies'- I am a a real Teddy collector also...
You have come on in 'leaps and' bounds' with graphics etc..
Still a bit hit and miss with me - especially gettiing my 'photos up.
Another lovely entry, I started a jumper ages ago, you have given me something to think about (lol)

Forgot to add Jan...here bus pass holders travel FREE in their area but from April I think they will be able to travel free all over Scotland providing they apply for another pass.....if my info is incorrect i am sure someone will put it right!!

Going to pass on the word to everyone I know that one of my best friends is a criminal. You naughty girl lol.  Lucky you managed to get the same dye lot and they were not sold out.  Glad you found my notes on graphics and lovely to see the Teddies.  Torrential rain here in the night and very strong wind today but hazy sunshine.

Ooo, you naughty girl you, but it's not like you weren'y still entitled to it was it ;)

I bet you do some lovely knitting. Glad you got your bus pass renewed. We don't have many buses here. There is one system that has drop off and pick up places to go different places when one doesn't have a way to go. I have never given it a try though. I haven't riden a bus since I was a child. Then it was a one time only thing. They don't even have a bus like that around here that will take you from one town to the next. Have a good day. Helen

Hi Jan, I agree with Jeannette, a criminal in J-Land...you are notorious now....lolol! But the thought of you being thrown off of the bus, lost and alone is too much to bear!!! :o)))

Love the teddy bears. How old do you have to be to get a bus pass? Any way you are only a month out of date!!! Glad you managed to get some more wool the same. Laughed at the squirrel corner!!!! Love Jeanxx

Lucky you found some wool with the same dye lot....Jumper with no sleeves sounds nice....And fancy letting your bus pass run out Shame on you.....LOL...Can't bear the thought of you being thrown off the bus and wandering them Fenland Lanes all alone..or even worse being on Anglia News...and then the "NEWS OF THE WORLD"  - Jeannette is always so helpful giving us advice..Loved your graphic.....Ally

As Stuart says(Speciman days) we travel free here and as from the 1st April we can go anywhere in Scotland Free. Great. Have a bus pass but have'nt plucked up courage to use it yet. LOve Joan.

We had torrential rain yesterday evening and during the night...The teddies are cute...You told me when i was sorting out the boys bus passes about you being a *ciminal* <ggg> Hopefully they will do in england as they are doing in scotland and make it countrywide that any OAP or disabled person with a concession bus pass gets to travel FREE   Caff xxx

The bears are lovely :-)  LOL @ you travelling illegally!!  It'll cost you know to keep quiet from the bus company LOL ;-)  Hope you've had a good day apart from that!

So you're the criminal element of J-Land!! Your no better than Katinka and her slipper stealing!! I'm sorry but I'll have to report it to the relevant authorities. I can be kept quiet at the right price!! Glad you got your wool in the same dye lot. I love your teddies! Jeannette.

Aw Jan - you are so clever - I can turn out a pretty good professional letter - but can't do graphics in my journals or those moving letters - so you have leapt well ahead of me girl! grrr!!!

You are going to have to advise me on bus passes, as I don't have one, despite being well past pensionable age .......sigh....... :-(

I still drive, despite my chronic arthritis, but when I retire at the end of April (YAY!!!!)  I may start taking the bus and seeing a bit of our lovely Fenland.  As you are an expert bus passenger - and I'm a 'rookie' ;-) you will have to take along on one of your trips to Peterborough - haven't been there for years!
luv
Freda
