Lost for Words
It's only 10.47 am, but boy it feels like a whole week's experience has happened in just a few hours.
First off, scrubbed the kitchen floor, and becuase it is mainly white, it takes some cleaning. After the floor had dried, went to put the cleaning materials away under the sink, when noticed that EVERYTHING in the cupboard was soaking wet with water.
Had to completely empty the cupboard (don't know what your sink cupboard is like, but mine is jam packed with cleaning stuff, when only one item is usually used, old tins of paint ((now rusted up))).which made the bloomin floor dirty again.
The trap from the plughole is leaking, and i can't tighten it up. Plumbers coming tomorrow morning.
Then postie arrived with quite a collection of envies.
First one i noticed was an envie practically opened up, with a pair of pinking shears i recently bought on ebay. THE BLOOMIN THINGS ARE COMPLETELY RUSTED UP , and won't cut a bloomin thing. (can you tell i was getting angry at this point).
Got onto the seller, and sent him a rather polite letter, and he has given me a partial refund.
So then decided to open the rest of my mail. One was a rather interesting package, and I opened it with anticipation.
WELL YOU WON'T BELIEEEEEEEEEEEVE IT.
Inside was a book, a really really lovely book, a book that i've been slavering and slobbering over since i borrowed it from the library.
A book for me to keeeeeep, and languish over and treasure for always. A brand spanking new book, smelling of freshly printed paper, ALL FOR ME TO KEEP.
So where did this book come from.
MY DEAREST FRIEND JAN. I'm finding it so hard to believe that someone could do something so precious for little old me. THANKYOU, JAN, BIG HEARTFELT THANKS GO TO YOU. MAY LIFE'S JOURNEY BE SWEET AND SECURE WITH EVERY STEP YOU TAKE. XXXX MARGARET XXXXX
