Somedays get off to a good start, some don’t….
Once the day starts off on a funny note it tends to continue in a similar vein.
I forgot to put our ‘busting at the seems’ bin out for collection. How much more can I squeeze in before it explodes. Next delivery is in 2 weeks.
We had a parcel due. The postman always comes in the afternoon. So it was safe to take the dog for a walk in the morning. Wrong. Postman came early and now we have to go into the city to pick up the parcel.
Son’s football hit the only rosebush in the garden and burst on a thorn.
I started baking some cakes but found out that I had run out of flour. So off to the shop we went and stocked up. Attempt 2 went well for another 20 seconds as I added the flour to the bowl then….
So off we went again to the shop again to buy eggs.
Attempt 3 went well until I remembered that I had run out of vanilla essence. Bugger the shop.
Attempt 4 was vanilla-less. Replaced with several overripe bananas.
Unbelievably it worked out ok. It actually looked ok. The pets were definitely interested. So to protect it I put the cake in the grill part of the oven. Bad idea. For lunch I did some some fish fingers – under the grill. Unfortunately I forgot the cake at the back of the grill. Perfectly cooked fish fingers and extremely well burnt cake.
My digital radio which I’ve had for 18 years died.
My calculator which I’ve had since university died.
A shelf in our son’s bedroom decided to fall off the wall.
The slide door on the psychotic IKEA wardrobe wedged itself shut and is refusing to open. Given its from IKEA it is now refusing to grant access to any of my clothes and is secure as Fort Knox.
So what happened at the start of the day to cause this.
Remember we live in a bungalow. So we are never too far away from the front door. I woke up and went to open the curtains. As I opened the front door blind a rather unfortunate villager was delivering a note about an Easter event. As the blinds opened the poor lady was exposed to the site of me in just a pair of boxer shorts. She is going to need years of counselling.
The day finished on a poignant note. Before the world changed we bought a miniature apple tree. Today it has blossom for the first time. My partner would have been so excited.
