On the Ball

No, this is nothing to do with a TV footie programme.
DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency) are on the ball and paperwork regarding cars old and new are flying through the mail.

Yesterday I got my new owners registration document and noticed that the Post Office had not removed the DISABLED category from the document, despite us saying that as the new owners it was no longer a mobility scheme vehicle.
So we had to leg it up to the Post Office up the road before they closed to get it sorted.
Luckily I had all the other new documents (insurance, MOT and receipt proof that we had taxed it on Monday before coming home) and the cashier who served me was very helpful. This in itself is unusual as they are normally a miserable bunch here, but then this was a new face. It was easy enough to rectify and cost me 30p for an envelope as I already had a first class stamp. I should get my revised new document in about 4 weeks (and this one only took three days?).

Today, we have had yet more correspondence from the DVLA, this time them paying us as road tax can no longer be transferred with the vehicle when sold on. The road tax on the I10 was horrendous** and you get a refund for each full calendar month remaining. For us, this was four months, so a third of twenty quid (**well it is Fibbing Friday) equates to £6.66. Hubby and I will have to go to a bank to deposit it, so field trip on Monday!
I wonder what will we treat ourselves to  with this new found wealth?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
