Rob at Kintropy

We avoided the whole issue by shopping (mostly) on line. The parking placard is our nearly-four-year-old daughter's, though, so we don't use it unless she is shopping with us.


I have done ALL my Christmas Pressie shopping online, on the first of December, which is a first for me !


That's why my wife and sister in law scramble over each other to take my Dad out shopping. He's as smarmy as myself though and proceeds to take the bus just to mess them up.


Grrr indeed. A friend of mine, with 2 knee replacements and a degenerative heart condition, is agonizing over whether to apply for a blue badge, on the ground that she "can walk some, after all"!

Meanwhile 2 able-bodied daughters of hers are licking their lips at all that easy parking, "provided we take Mum along." Grrrrr!


Glad to see you got out shopping Mumps. My friends have been known to take advantage of my blue badge too. Quite often when I go out they say 'Could you bring your blue badge with you?' Oh well.

Hope your feeling okay

I made my first trip out Christmas shopping this year today. Ouch! The good news is that I didn't fall on any strangers :)
