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.
