A week of mistakes and hoohas

We have been moving rather too fast this week. I have been feeling low level ill (have I been saying this since Autumn began? It feels like it) and trying to stay on top of things. So, there have been minor mishaps aplenty. I washed my phone in the washing machine. I forgot what year we were in and so bought the wrong dvd for someone. P and I slogged to the sorting office to pick up a parcel that the postie had tried to deliver and were disappointed to find that it was not our lovely Christmas craft bits but some free lightbulbs... That sort of thing. It also turned out that our credit card details had been stolen from some online retailer. The card company knew this but hadn’t got round to mentioning it to us. They had, instead, decided the sensible thing to do was to trigger a security thing every time we used the card – and block it until we’d confirmed the transaction. What with washed phones and the approaching festive season, we’d used the card three times in as many days and were spending half our life on the phone to the credit card company. In the end, D managed to speak to someone who knew what was going on and arrange for new cards.

I will spare you any more mishap tales but let’s just say that it is being a very tiring week.

The kids and I are off to the vet with Bunny in the morning. He’s not really improving but he’s still with us. Wish us luck...

Fingers crossed for Bunny.

Hope you feel better soon, and that next week is more problem-free than this week has been!

PS: I'm *always* forgetting what day/ week/ month/ year it is.

oh dear :( sounds like you need more sleep, hot honey and lemon, and some days curled up with books. Good luck with Bunny.

And yeah, we have problems recalling the days now.. even though it's written up and we still do have a weekly schedule of sorts - you know, football on monday, tennis and karate, grandmas on thursday...
