Do you ever have those days where you wonder where on earth the time went and you don't seem to have achieved anything? And it all seems to go haywire? I just had 4 of those in a row. Actually - to be quite fair one of those was my lovely mum in law's birthday and we took her out for a nice lunch, so that doesn't count. But the rest?? Just a few examples, don't want to bore you........
The boiler man's young assistant, after placing the old radiator brackets on the bed (which had carefully been moved well away from where he was working, so he didn't mess it up) then managed to gather up the metal linking clip for the double bed with his rubbish! We have had to source and buy a new one. This is actually not that easy! Plus I had to clear up all the mess that he left behind, from somewhere he was not supposed to be. We were not happy people, and neither was his boss when I rang up to say what he'd done!
I tried to work on my dolls yesterday and:
- The bulb in my sewing machine blew
- I didn't have a spare
- I couldn't get the faceplate off- in the end we had to ring the shop where I bought it as the instructions in the manual were wrong!
It wouldn't set. Not even overnight. Back to the drawing board.
We tried to go for a walk today, but every time we began, something happened, and finally around 3pm we decided that maybe it wasn't to be.
I have to go to Nottingham this week and give a presentation for work which I hate doing ( it's not finished, and I can't come up with any whizzy ideas to complete it). I just want to stay at home and work on my dolls, and my embroidery.
But, I suppose none of this really matters, 'cos we are warm! And I ate the tea bread (heh heh) We have a lovely new powerful boiler sending out delicious heat, and I have a new radiator in the spare room, so my hands no longer get cold as I type. It's so wonderful not to feel cold. Maybe the sofa will arrive next and we'll have somewhere cosy to sit........
Then I'm going to book some time off!
Hope your week was much better than mine.
The abandoned workspace...... poor dolls......
Still Grumpy, but working hard on becoming less so. x
