Son Do You Know Why I'm Stoppin' You For?

Cause I'm young, and I'm late, and funds are low. This afternoon I collected my children from school and headed to meet my partner. The arrangement was to take her to work and then spend time with the children at the park. The rendezvous point was the library, approaching the destination I indicated that I would be taking the third exit from the roundabout. There were several distractions; my son attempting to reach out the window and touch cars, oncoming traffic and an obstruction in the road. Before I knew what had happened I was stopped by the police and taken through various checks. I wasn't too sure whether this was routine or whether I had committed an offence.  Nah, I ain't pass the bar but I know a little bit, enough that this fixed penalty notice is totally... Three points and a fine for contravening a No Entry sign, not what I needed before Leeds. I was disappointed because it was avoidable, it was the first time I had seen my children in six weeks and before I head to university. Afterwards I took my partner to work and played in the park with the children. It was good, I'm glad their back but I feel sad because soon I will be a distance from them and evening journeys to the park won't be achievable!
