A big shopping fail! What Again? I hear you say.
Not my fault.
I had a list, checked and checked again.
Yes. Everything on it.
I had to go into Neath so decided to do it all there.
It was destined to go pear shaped.
My first port of call was Tesco, it is fairly large store there so I should have no problems.
4 things on the list were not in stock. Bother. (not quite what I said under my breath)
Oh well, off to Morrisons, that is where the car park is and they should have them.
Off to Wilko, I need a bulb for the fridge, they have stacks of bulbs.
Right. Just not the size that I want. Bother. Again.
By this time my head was thumping, the SO was visibly wilting.
We exchanged a look, you know the sort, and said in unison "home then".
We had to stop at Tesco in Pontardawe for petrol, there was a massif queue in Neath, so popped into the store and found what I needed.
The camera will wait till tomorrow, or when I feel that I can face dealing with that. Right now I am going to take the dogs out, let the fresh air soothe my aching head.
Upon my return I plan on a pot of tea, knitting and possibly some chocolate.
The SO is muttering about Mincemeat crumble slice, with cream, preferably clotted.
There is no cream, clotted or otherwise in the house.
I cannot go to another shop, not even the village store, the very thought is enough to make me have a fit of the vapours.
I have a parcel to send off to Francesca, tomorrow will have to suffice.
How about that for a Whingy Whiny post.
Even the SO, who has enough patience for us both, uttered this "We are never coming back".
Ha, he has an eye test booked for next month.
It was not all bad, on the way back from Wilko we walked past a charity furniture shop. There in full view was a blue office chair. Nice clean padding and fabric, wheels that worked and height adjustment that also worked. It is now in the sewing room in front of my machine. My existing chair is now positioned near the overlocker. No more moving the chair backwards and forwards.
The price? A sweet £7.50. One very similar in Argos is a penny short of £50.
Now for that walk.
