There’s been a few slightly irritating moments this week.
First up, I was late for work by over an hour on Monday. I left the house at the normal time, but when I tried to move my car, it made a hideous screeching noise. A helpful bloke walking past said: “I wouldn’t drive that if I were you!”
Thanks mate, the car’s impression of a pterodactyl had kind of got me thinking along the same lines.
Luckily, a nice local mechanic came out and
performed a major mechanical miracle drove it, the noise stopped and he said a bit of metal had got caught in the brake discs and fallen out. I got to work at gone 10am – but better late than never, as I told the boss.
Secondly, having trumpeted cockily about my self-mending tumble dryer, I put some work clothes in last night and… it’s self-broken again. Hmmph.
Apart from that, it’s been howling a gale all week, with the entertaining addition of pouring horizontal rain yesterday. All is good.
But at least it’s Wednesday, which means not only is the work week more than half done it’s…….
WIAW party time! Thank you to Jenn 🙂
Breakfast was standard:
Strawberries, blueberries, yoghurt, granola and flax/berry/cocoa seed mix. If there’s such a thing as a superfood bowl, I think this was pretty close!
Lunch came from a combination of the remains of a carton of egg whites, begging to be used, and a lack of motivation to make anything more ambitious:
2tbsp egg whites cooked in a smoking hot omelette pan makes a brilliant crepe. Easy done and filled with whatever you fancy – and delicious…
Dinner was made quickly because I didn’t get in till 8pm. I left the yard pretty sharpish as I realised it was getting dark and although my lights were still on my bike from last winter – I’ve since got a new bike. Oops.
There have also been the last couple of plums from the tree in the garden I share with my neighbours. Funnily enough, I didn’t go on holiday at the end of August this year and also this year the tree didn’t get stripped of fruit. I would never begin to suggest, of course, that my neighbours swiped the lot last year – it must just be coincidental that the evil plum thieves/mystery plum blight chose not to strike again. Weird 🙂
And talking of plums, the final irritating thing was that I took some into work for everyone, the Friday before last. When I looked in my work bag this Monday… I found an overlooked plum squashed at the bottom. It wasn’t nice 🙂
