My apologies for my tardiness in approving pingbacks for the 3TC today.
It has been one of those days.
Hubby placed an order on line last week and was told the goods would be ready to collect the following day, but not to come to the store until a confirmation to collect text was received.
We didn’t get one and this morning I checked the bank account and the money had been taken, so he phoned the company. Whilst he was on hold as they checked the status of his order, a text came through to say his order was ready to collect, but the lady didn’t come back on line and eventually the connection timed out. Field trip, yay!!!
We decided to give the dog a shower this morning as she was so hot and uncomfortable, but brushed her first. The amount of loose fur was amazing, almost another dog, but even then she lost a lot more when she got wet. It was a cool move as she has been much more relaxed in the heat though we dried her with the hairdryer as usual.
After that and having breakfast, we went off to collect Hubby’s order intending to do a little bit of shopping at the same time.
Apart from getting sausages which are now in the freezer, everything went downhill from there.
The tin of paint Hubby wanted for the bathroom is not one kept in stock and has to be ordered specially. This could take up to two weeks, so the bathroom can wait.
Following on, we got to the store for Hubby’s order and he came away angry and empty handed. Apparently the order had been cancelled as stock was no longer available. He got on the phone to the company and asked them to check what was happening bearing in mind what we had been told and the text message received saying we could collect.
Seems their system is that if a pending order is accessed, it generates a false completion and the collect text is sent. How bloody stupid is that????? Anyway, Hubby has been refunded and we received a confirmation email, not text, to that effect this afternoon.
We went into a small discount store to get doggy poo bags and their stocks of everything else are depleted so I bought 2 packs. Hubby went in after me looking for some rivets, and they had none at all, not even a mixed bag as he’d bought before.
We did a little bit of food shopping and there were no dog chews for Maggie again. Hubby called me from inside to ask if I wanted cherry tomatoes as they were on special, and my phone screen was all back to front! I turned it off and on again and it corrected itself only to do the same thing when I took it out of my bag later. Hubby’s had a look, and some water has got in somehow, but it seems OK now. No, I did not have it on me when we washed the dog!!
So, we were late getting home (2pm!!!) and the intended cottage pie with carrots and green beans ended up as savoury mince, baked beans and mash.
We have therefore screwed up our meal times so here we are at 5.30 and eating cake!
Maggie seems to have hurt her foot and won’t let us touch it, so we’ve managed to squeeze some cream into the pad which should help soothe it if nothing else.
I’ve had a go at the puzzle and put in about 100 pieces. Having sorted out all the purply bits, it is not going to be as easy to do that bit as I thought!!
