Well…what do you think of the new theme? It was completely free; and I felt it suited my needs more than adequately for 2014?
So having been checking out the various themes and drooling enviably at some of their premium priced on offer I decided that as it’s already been a rather costly affair for me since returning home from our recent cruise!
To elaborate; we ended up with an unexpected bill for my daughters car followed quickly then by our remaining cat who decided to have a seizure under the dining room table whilst emmiting noises from his salivating mouth that only killer whales could relate to!
Currently I am still in a state of shock at the bills recieved from just two visits to our local vets.
The first entailed their charges for a blood test and an overnight stay!
(Quite honestly…I could have put the cat up in the honeymoon suite of the Hilton Hotel down the road here and still have had enough change to treat us both to a cooked breakfast!)
Then came another shock when we were presented with a charge of £28 for a course of medication in the form of minute pink tablets. These he is able to reject by flicking and firing out of his gob like projectiles and with monotonous regularity!
And then yet another check up was requested which was followed by another blood test after a brief five minute grope with the vet, (that was for the the cat you understand?) The whole fiasco amounted to the astronomical cost of £108.
So after I got the cat back home and left him a list of jobs to complete around the house before returning to his sick bed; I decided to take the camera and go over to Whitely for a coffee and to try to make some sense of how I can be quite so skint in such a short space of time.
Happy bleeding New Year…I think NOT!
Now regards this young couple in the image before you.
They were both so engrossed in playng this ‘roller-ball’ game of skill and competing against one another at a feverish pace; that they remained fixed to this spot for the time it took for me to get into the coffee shop to order up my Grande Americano, and then to consume it at what could only be described as a very leisurly pace.
I liked the way in which the mannequins in the shop window behind them both seemed to be following this critical ‘champions decider match’ with equal interest?
All that fun and yet…this game was completely free to play…That’s right it cost nothing…Nill…Zilch…Nada!
Unlike my frickin vet bill!
