Grrrrrr and other grumpy noises
Thursday, March 08, 2018
I haven't been able to help my daughter and future son in law out with the finances for their wedding due to my current circumstances. To be honest, that makes me feel a] quite sad and b] a bit of a failure. I have though tried to help/be involved in other ways. Daughter was delighted when I informed her I would be sorting out her 'something old, something new etc' bits. Given she is something of a perfectionist and so can be very controlling, it was quite something that she put her absolute trust in me that I would get it right.
So imagine how I felt today when despite ordering certain bits weeks ago, they still haven't arrived. I am not happy. That could be the understatement of the century. I had no cash as I'm waiting for a new bank card to arrive. Worker Friend offered to transfer some money into my youngest son's account for me. Youngest son was fine with that but then he couldn't find his card. Turns out he'd left it at a friend's place. There was much jiggling and juggling but eventually I had some cash.
Thursday is late night shopping so I hot footed into town. Managed to get some substitute items. Not as good but I have them. I was in such a sweat at the thought of letting my girl down. I've never made a promise to any of my children that I couldn't keep but my god this seemed close. Thanks to the power of love, friendship, goodwill, determination etc a way was found.
What's the betting the missing items turn up tomorrow? Well in the case of one of them I really hope so 'cos it is so much nicer than the replacement I was able to get today. Other than that, it doesn't matter - I can fulfill my promise.
