Bad Week for Beading!

Well, I'm not having much luck this week as far as torch time goes.

Monday was out as I had my "Mystery Shopper" hat on. Someone my mum knows runs a little business and occasionally asks me to go and spend his money on little bits and pieces and have a nice morning coffee and lunch and then give him feedback on the customer service. Very nice little job I have to say.

Tuesday was full of appointments, things like doctors, dentists etc and during a 3 hour gap in the middle of them all I spent some much overdue time with my mum.

Wednesday I had to go and see my accountant, dull but necessary and I am much happier and relaxed now everything is sorted. In the afternoon I was the children's taxi service!

Today..........fume, fume!!!
Today should have been a whole afternoon of blissful uninterrupted torch time. This morning I had to wait in for a delivery of a dishwasher to replace the brand new one I had just before Christmas which went wrong the weekend before last. Firstly they were supposed to deliver by 13:45 and at 14:15 I rang the office concerned to ask where they were. I was told they were nearly here and it wouldn't be long. An hour and a half later the phone went, it was the driver of the lorry saying the lane was too small for his truck (we get farm feed deliveries all the time in huge lorries so not sure why he finds it such a problem) and I now have to wait in again on Monday therefore loosing another day! I don't expect for one minute I'll be compensated.

So if you're wondering why there have been no beads, that's the explanation, however.........
Tomorrow is a brand new day ;-)


  1. Oh and just to say, prior to this week I have been working on replacing an order that went missing in the post before Christmas....and it was sent Special Delivery!?!

  2. Hey Helen, there's nothing more frustrating than waiting in only for it not to be delivered!!! grrr!

    Here's to a much more productive day tomorrow! ;o)
