I seems to have a visitor
This is my driving licence showing a younger me at the age of 36 years. It was issued when I passed my test. I was not really a young driver, but realised that having four children to move around, working as a housewife and an export clerk in a company, all simultaneously, I had to get mobile. Depending on public transport and otherwise walking everywhere was becoming a little exhausting and after approximately 90 driving lessons I took the test and passed first time which was a surprise for everyone concerned including my driving instructor probably.
I was proud to get this licence and have had it in my purse since that day, carrying it everywhere with me. It was paper, and naturally has got a little crumpled and frayed at the edges in the meanwhile, but it is still my official permit, that is until the end of 2023, meaning I still have three years to change it to a plastic credit card similar permit. I am one of the remaining 29,000 owners of the old paper version in Switzerland.
How can they do this? Change the law to force you to stop using an environmental friendly material and transfer to plastic material, which we should all now be reducing. I will hold out to the last minute and some time in December 2023, with a tear in my eye I will exchange this reminder of the good old days to something plastic. I will probably become one of the last in Switzerland to do it.
It seems to have been moving to Spring all through the Winter that never was. We had one day of snow, cold temperatures, but it was bearable. Was it only yesterday that I was on the search for Autumn leaves falling, turning to shades of brown and red and now I search for signs of Spring. I even found a couple in my garden.
The snowdrops have been around for a couple of days and now the flowers are opening. They are looking a little bedraggled because it was raining.
Surely that cannot be all, no it is not. I have signs of daffodils, but only the leaves up to now.
And where there are daffodils there must be crocus. Yes they are also poking through the surface. The season is rescued, Spring is on its way, although taking its time.
If the farmer begins to plough the fields, then Spring must be in the air, or in the earth.
Always look on the bright side of life, especially after you get new eyes. There were two operations, each eye was replaced, but eventually he could see clearly again.
This gull is saying goodbye it seems.
