My day did not start well with an email from Tesco saying changing details of my account has been successful. However if you didn't change them you need to change your password immediately and contact them. Well I hadn't changed anything! I had visions of somebody ordering thousands of pounds worth of stuff on my account. After spending 30 minutes trying to change the password unsuccessfully, the brain kicked in and I thought I would check out the other details on my account. The address was the same and nothing had been ordered. Phew!. So I tried ringing them on a automated system that didn't make any sense at all. Eventually got through to an actual living breathing person only to be told not to worry about it as it was something to do with their computers. I really don't need this stress first thing in the morning Tesco!
I actually went out today woohoo! Not far, my boss picked me up and we went to a coffee shop. We went over a few work things, and one of my clients had sent some chocolates for me :) It was so nice to get out, I like my own company, but it is nice to have a chat and catch up. Even the cat is hiding from me now, she is used to having the house to herself so she can sleep all day. Now she has me nattering away to her.
I had decided on the pattern for the new baby quilt. It was going to be pinwheels and would require precision cutting and sewing for all the points to meet. Not my usual style as I am a bit slap dash with these things, but I thought I would make a block to see how it turned out. Well, it was a disaster! I think it would have turned out better if I had done my usual slap dash work. I really don't think I have the concentration for this at the moment. I hate to be beaten but sod it, life's too short. Back to the drawing board to choose another pattern that an 'off their face with pain killers and lack of sleep' person can cope with.
I also picked some of the nuts off our corkscrew hazel. OH has a habit of cutting things back when I'm not looking. He has already had a go at it so I thought I had better rescue some of the nuts before he does anymore 'trimming' It is advised to pick them from the trees before squirrels get to them, in our garden it is before the OH gets to them. What is it with men and cutting things down, he is like Edward Scissorhands. I have been known to 'throw the dummy out of the pram' after he has been 'trimming' stuff and totally ruined it. I have tried hiding the clippers but he always manages to find them. If our sons spot him lurking in the garden with the clippers they say "does mum know you are doing this? You are going to be in trouble!" Do you have the same problem, or maybe you are the one who is clipper happy in your family?
I hope you all had a good weekend. Thank you for all your comments,
