Yesterday was a full day.
Up at 6.45 ready to greet the window replacement guys for 8am who then didn’t turn up til 10.
DH was doing his negative thinking routine “they won’t turn up, I know it, you know it”.
Yes they will I said as I put out 2 cups and some coffee and sugar ready for a welcoming cuppa when they arrived after their long journey from Bournemouth. So much for DH searching for a local firm- they must’ve started their drive at 5am to make it to ours for 10.
9.45 am he’s saying to me should we be phoning to see where they are and I say Nah! Give it til 10.
So 10 am they’re here and between cups of coffee and some friendly banter they get on with it. The front bedroom and lounge windows badly needed doing b4 we decorate so now seemed the perfect time. Unfortunately they chose the windiest of days to come LOL and one guy said he needed a free hand to hold onto something while he makes good the rendering as the ladder was swaying. Rather him than me.
They only took 5 hours to do the two and even cleaned the windows b4 they left- smeary so I went over them again b4 the curtains went back. Then DH helped me clean through. Moron here--me-- forgot to cover the bed so the duvet and sheets had to be changed. Felt such a prat when I realised, by which time it was too late
I was going out for the evening with bezzie mate Jackie, . having cancelled last week coz of my dold in da doze and I’d phoned her and left a message with her DH saying to make it this week as I’m sure I’d be fine. But unbeknown to me he just told her I’d phoned to say I had a cold and I was sorry to let her down. So I shower and get ready
8pm comes around- no Jackie. Phoned and we realised what had happened. Made plans for next Friday, phoned our fav restaurant- they’ll be closed for renovations how about 3/12 Okay- booked the table. Phoned back Jackie and had a chat then realised the time. 8.30pm. gotta go get something to eat Jackie, okay babe by for now.
So there I am cooking Moussaka and a salad for one ready for 9pm last night, DH having eaten earlier thinking I’m going out with Jackie and he’s headed out with his bezzie mate for the night. Thank God I had one in the freezer.
I spent the rest of the night watching rubbish TV in my jim jams, loving being able to control the TV channels for once- No news, No political programs, just stuff that washes over you.
Just what was needed after an early start, fitting in a workout, clearing round, showering and having a disappointment
