An Idiot but not abroad!

I’ve not seen the TV programme ‘an idiot abroad’, but I reckon they may well have based it on me! I recently placed an order online for a couple of items, which I was convinced I had ‘clicked’ for delivery. I got an email and I ‘read i’ (yeah right), and still didn’t cotton on. Then a few days later I get an email saying my items have been delivered. I knew they hadn’t, after all I had been in all day. So I promptly sat down and composed an email sparing no blushes to the company, who soon rung back. “Our records” they begun “show that your order had been arranged for a store collection”. “Oh” I said I re-read the email I had summoned up. And true enough the order had gone through with store collection. So humble and pie were eaten.

We collected the items one of which was a saucepan rack. Easy enough to put together for even me really, except it wasn’t. I somehow managed to take a good slice from my thumb with the spanner! As blood poured from the gash, my wife asked if I needed a plaster. “No, I’m fine” I said pressing some tissue firmly on it. Having the patience of a squashed ant, I carried on fixing the rack together, but of course the more I Moved it the more it bled. I eventually ended up completing it, but was saddened by the fact we were one nut short of completion, but being thrifty, I soon sorted that – I left it (lol).

Add to this I made a purchase from ebay recently for some disposable gloves. I ordered size xl or so I thought. When they came they were missing the x from the size. And when I cleaned the oven the other day I tried to put some on and they were more like small! But at least I haven’t quite done what my mother did when I was young, she made a meat pie with sweet pastry, and when I had an upset stomach she gave me baking powder instead of Andrews. I guess memory cells lack somewhat in our family judging by this…


Until next time take care
