I don't play football so I don't know the penalty rule.
I do drive, however, and for parking outside my pals house in Ladbroke Square I was penalised for parking without a ticket.
The ticket, that cost me £3.00 was place firmly on my dashboard. The draft, as I closed the door, sent the flimsy ticket to the floor.
Two hours, a cup of coffee and two Duchy original shortbreads later my pal peeled the parking ticket off my windscreen.
I now await my appeal.
Penalty, smenalty as long as you love your traffic warden.
If I have to pay a fine I will thcream and thcream until I'm thick.
I have eaten home made chopped liver so I feel a little queasy.
I have hoovered the bedroom rug and moved it under the bed as I have tripped over it three times in the last three hours.
I have hugged the dog.
I have hugged the husband.
I have hugged the roomies.
I have made arrangements for tomorrows funeral.
I have laid to rest todays programme which was so speedy my producer nearly caught fire.
We shouted about hospital parking - a disgrace.
The Proms - an outmoded institution?
And I had a wonderful chat with Dick Kirby, an ex copper who has written a disgustingly readable compendium of 29 stories about VILLAINS.
I interviewed a life coach, and we talked about change and more change.
I have now changed into my pj's.
I have chosen my vegetarian meal for my take away.
I have agreed to watch Hotel Babylon.
I have given up on running it's too late.
I have discovererd a little of Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill - wonderful.
I have turned off the heating and turned on the husband!!!
I have enjoyed today.
I have collected the mail from the mail box and now
It is time to settle down and recoup for 2morrer.
have a peaceful night.

Oh Jenny how I love reading your blog, it makes me smile everyday !
I am trying to summon up the courage to start one myself, but not sure I could do it justice.
who wants to listen (?) to the rambling thoughts of a 40 something mother of two teenage girls who leads a relatively quiet life ?
I think the joy of your blog and indeed your show is the honesty with which you talk and open up to us all.
I loved you on GFL and I am so glad you have found a home on LBC - thanks for being you
A belated happy 21st to BB, my baby is 18 this year - how is that possible I am only 22 myself !
Belated Birthday wishes to BB, big hugs to you and Jim (Ibsen? that's hard that is!) and hugs to Jackson, a note for Christian you were right I got called for a second audition this week, if I get the part I'll be off to the USA to do The Importance of Being Earnest! (other things permitting)and a note to Kirsten, I know it's hard but stay positive that disease feeds on pessimism.
Loving the blog as always Jen and the show. I'm off to Vegas friday and if I win big I'll get you back on telly where you belong if it's the last thing I do!!!!
Lots of love
p.s Not that I watch it but the clips advertising it are all over the telly but has anyone else noticed how all of a sudden they are having 2 guest chefs on market ...yawn...kitchen, wonder where on earth they got that idea from could it be the popular GFL??????
Hi Jeni, listening to you at the moment & enjoying it very much.
Belated birthday wishes to BB - have you all recovered from the celebrations?!
Hope Jim's having a great time. I'm a big Ibsen fan - I saw Hedda Gabler with Eve Best a few years ago, it was fantastic!
Thanks Marmite, you are so right about being positive & I'm doing my best. Good luck with the audition & have a great time in Las Vegas.
