Today was going so well, too. And then:
- We went to Ikea and Argos out at Straiton. Bad mistake. I’m usually too holy-ed out on Sunday afternoon to go shopping, but we needed some bits and pieces for the Cellardyke house (we have guests going in there tomorrow). Never again! Never again on a Sunday, at least. There were … counts … yes, there were a hundred million billion people there. Someone even tooted at me in their car, when I was about to crash into them. I say ‘crash’ I was almost 10 feet away from them, driving in completely the opposite direction.
- I discovered that we appeared to have bought a disposable Flymo hedge trimmer. I say ‘disposable’, but what I really mean is RUBBISH! We’ve used it 3 times, and on the third time it broke. Today. The motor burned out, and the switch snapped. It’s not like we’ve been trimming Hampton Maze with it!
- England lost the first npower test (cricket) to Australia today. They lost their last five wickets for only 22 runs. That’s RUBBISH (part 2). (Remember, I’m half-English … but only when it comes to supporting cricket.)
Still, I’ve been to church today and so at least I know that the Lord Jesus still loves me. Even if shoppers at Ikea and Argos don’t; our Flymo hedge trimmer wants to frustrate me; and the England cricket team … sighs.
