I have to hem a dress for Laura Patricia because she is a bridesmaid at Amy Stephen’s wedding in two weeks. The dress has an outer layer and an inner later plus six floofy hanging bits that all need to go up about 10 cm. Might be easier to ask Laura to grow a couple inches over the next ten days or so!
Today was the ultimate test of my patience. It took me 1 hour and 40 minutes to drive five miles to work this morning due to road works and a broken down bus. After work I decided I needed to drive to Camberley to go to the big Marks & Spencers for some things – M3 between Junction 3 & 4A had a 45 minutes delay. I was going to Junction 4A so turned around and went home, but M25 was chockablock so it took another hour to go the same five miles! Got a cup of tea, decided to look at Facebook, so computer starts important updates and took one hour to complete. Three hours and 40 minutes spent waiting today and for people who know me that is an accomplishment in itself!!
It has been a comedy of errors with online shopping this Christmas – theirs and mine. Two presents never being sent and one being sent to the wrong address. Ah well, smile! I have all the blessings I need and what are more material possessions going to add to that? Still I wish my Mum’s parcel would get here as she always sends us the best stocking fillers. Merry Christmas everyone!
You know how there’s stages to life that all women will likely have to pass at some point in time – like learning to ride a bike, first date, having a baby, first mammogram etc? Well I just survived my first root canal and it wasn’t as bad as I was led to believe! I didn’t even cry! Ironically the dentist was a woman and seemed to understand my white knuckles gripping the armrest.
