In which I try to be organised
Today has been rather taken up with getting everything prepared for an early start and a day out tomorrow. I have (foolishly?!) registered to take a Welsh exam and I have to be at the exam centre in Aberystwyth for 9 am. As it's an hour's journey away and there's no parking at the centre itself, I have to allow time for the walk from the car park, so that means setting off at 7.30 am.

Being prepared meant filling up the vehicle with diesel. I had a surprise when I went into the garage shop to pay. It has all be extended and refurbished into a proper filling station shop. It's always had a rack of sweets and chocolate and a fridge of soft drinks plus a couple of shelves of antifreeze, road maps, tyre pressure gauges and other motoring bits and pieces, but now it's got a lot more choice. I didn't think it was that long since I last bought diesel but the transformation happened without me noticing any sign of building work.

Sounds like it might have been a useful transformation. Unlike the one applied to my nearest petrol station, which used to be a useful stop on the way home after a long day if I needed a grocery top-up or (at the end of a really long day) a bottle of wine. Now, however, I can get Greggs, Subway or Costa Coffee stuff and nothing actually useful.

It's always nice when something transforms without disruption.
