Today was Pirate Day for the Primary 5 kids at school today. My middle daughter asked me to draw some “scars” on her face and hands to add to the authenticity!
Here is her teacher, getting into the spirit of things.
And her class mates too.
At midnight last night, while switching off the lights, I noticed something odd about our new fridge/freezer – within the wrapping I caught a glimpse of not one (for the ice/water) panel but two panels on the front of the fridge/freezer doors.
It turns out the electrical supplier had sent us THE WRONG fridge/freezer – the one they delivered has a built in espresso coffee maker, which I am sure is lovely, but we neither want nor need it. It also costs £600 more….for a coffee machine?! I am not a coffee lover, but surely even a coffee addict would find that excessive?
After a rather sleepless night, worrying about how things would be delayed if the correct fridge/freezer might not be available for weeks, I rang the company. Both the person on the other end of the phone and I were relieved to discover that OUR fridge/freezer had been ordered correctly and was waiting patiently in the warehouse.
They promise they will be here tomorrow (Thursday) to exchange the appliances. Watch this space!
Everyone says there are always hiccups when you are getting things like this done – maybe this is our hiccups, or maybe there will be more.
This afternoon our friendly removal guy (he has moved all our possessions 3 times already!) came to help move out the sofas and shelves from the family room. Having a husband a few weeks post surgery means there was no way we could have managed without his help. The family room end of the kitchen/family room is now very empty and echo-ey!
Here is another layout I made using Weeds and Wildflowers Life Is Good. There is a great sale going on, and keep a regular eye on their Meadow blog for freebies – but be quick, the links don’t stay up for long.
See you tomorrow.
