A few weeks ago I was reconciling my bank statement and realised that I had been way overcharged for my mobile phone. I have a contract with a few months left to run, now that I have finished work I will not renew and just keep it as a pay and go.
I spoke at length to a
Fast forward to Friday morning, I once again find myself reconciling my statement and what do I see, no credit payment! What is more they had again taken too much. Shock, Horror, Such Surprise NOT. On the telephone I went and spoke to
Now things may have changed in the world of money, but a letter telling you that you have been credited with a sum of money used to mean that said sum would appear in your bank account PDQ. Not that you then had to incur the cost of a phone call and beg for it to be returned.
It is allegedly on it's way back to me, I will not hold my breath.
Rant over, it is safe to come out from behind the sofa. I have started playing with my crochet hook and wool, my tension leaves a great deal to be desired but that will come. The wool is rather coarse and the hook is a sticky plasticky stuff, my new set has been dispatched so should be with me soon. Regardless of that I am having fun, I will make 1 each of the 6 squares and then go and buy some decent yarn and see what I can do with that.
I will show and tell when all 6 are completed.
I happened to say, in someones hearing, how funny I found Mrs Brown's Boys. I know that it is rude, crude and verbal slapstick, but I find it funny. I digress, I have been gifted the first 3 series on dvd by a friend who has watched them until she knows them word for word.
If I can resist I will save them for next month when Francesca is home for a weekend.
We have had a really lovely day so far, bright bright sunshine and a gentle breeze, within the last 10 minutes the wind has picked up and the clouds are gathering. Ben has been out 3 times so far today and I plan 1 more outing before the inevitable happens and it rains.
I was planning on popping into the CS, to drop off those tissue holders and have a rummage but time is ticking away, it may wait till Monday.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. The garden seems to be shedding last nights rainfall quickly.
2. My store of apples is still in very good condition, the late apples are still crisp and juicy.
3. More work is being done in the village shop (rubs hands together in gleeful anticipation)
4. My hair has grown enough that I can get it cut to one length at last.
5. I have another book by David Baldacci to read, thank goodness for the Library.
My neighbour Neville has been suffering with back pain for most of the week, this morning he is not in so much discomfort and is feeling much happier. He was a gardener for many years and before that worked in Horticulture, heavy lifting combined with working outside in all weather has not helped his back at all. I tried to get him to see the doctor for help but nothing doing. He did at least borrow my hot water bottle and some Ibuprofen gel.
Ben is padding around, he is either hungry or bored so I better go and see. I hope that all those on the Coast to the Southwest stay safe, I heard somebody on the Telly talk about a sea surge.
