One of the many excellent reasons for being married to Mrs WeeKeef is that she has access to free city centre parking at the weekends.
In order to partake of this bounty, however, it is necessary to do battle with a recently updated bollard system which would make strong men on The Krypton Factor weep. It looks easy enough as you approach with the key at the ready, but actually opening the bugger involves three hands, lots of swearing and about 37 individual key/bollard manoeuvres. It’s like one of those Chinese boxes designed to keep small children occupied all afternoon at your auntie’s house.
We’re parked there now but I have a horrible feeling it will be easier just to put the car up for sale rather than retrieve it later.
