Well it’s been a good day. Bertie had his NCT (National car test) this morning. He is ten years old so I wondered how he would get on, especially after the suicidal badger incident. A young man (here I go again with young men) came and took the car keys and 50 euro from me and drove Bertie into the test centre. I sat in the waiting room, like an expectant father in a maternity ward and watched poor Bertie through the window being pushed and pulled.
Anyway I’m delighted to say that Bertie passed 🙂
After that excitement I had to go into Sligo to do some shopping for mum. As I was driving past Doorly Park I noticed a lot of people and boats so I had a quick walk down there. It was the Sligo Rowing Club doing The Sligo Head of the River event, which is a 3500 metre time trial from the mouth of Lough Gill along the Garavogue River.
