Got in trouble for parking under a school sign here in New Zealand. Apparently, a yellow polka dotted zone is no parking, and I was hit with a $60 fine for parking my car near Ben's school to pick him up.
There aren't any school buses, so pick up is mandatory. I am just peeved that I keep getting in trouble for stupid things here- in two months, Mike got a speeding ticket for going 112 in a 100 km.hr zone and I have received two speeding tickets. Mike and I are going to take a AA defensive driving course and work on getting our NZ drivers licenses. These rules are wacky!
Grumble....all well, so it goes. Off to cook up some raw pumpkin to make two pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. Step aside Martha Stewart, here I come!
Good thing my apartment has a smoke alarm, just saying. Beware of the home cooked disaster chef.
