I've made another sale on eBay & so I decided to combine posting the item off with a little gentle exercise. I would walk to the post office. I set of and very shortly realised I didn't have walking knickers on, well you've heard of walking boots! I have walking & nonwalking knickers. Whats the difference I hear you ask? The knickers I was wearing were a size 18, I'm now a 14, gravity was working as gravity should. I managed to walk far enough to hide behind a large van, once there I removed the knickers & stuffed them in my handbag! I continued on to the post office without incident, but feeling the breeze a little more chilly than I expected. Fortunately I was wearing a straight skirt so no one was getting an unexpected eyeful.
On the walk home I thought I was going to earn some extra pocket money as a car slowed down and started to crawl along beside me. Now the quiet little village street I was walking along doesn't really lend itself to kerb crawlers. I eventually turned towards the car to find that the driver was lost & didn't know how to lower his window. He was trying to get to Sonning Common & according to his map he should be able to from where he was. A brief look at his map showed he was using an Ordnance Survey map & not a road map. The large wide road he was trying to find was in fact the river Thames, it would, no doubt have taken him to Sonning Common, but he would have got rather wet!
