One frenzied week!
Merrily tootling around in the new car I had rather a heated exchange with Alan from directchoice insurance. Who blithely informed me that they had 'cancelled my insurance as per my instructions.' My instructions, quite clear in black and white on my email said, change of car and gave full details. I was put on hold......It then took Alan from directchoice insurance three days to make me legal again.
You know I never used to use the F word, (well I might have done whence in labour) and my kids were severely punished for so doing, but these days, people just do not do their F****** job properly.
My second rant. A week last Monday I paid in a cheque over the post office counter. This normally takes 48 hours to show up on my bank details. No show. Went in today with the receipt and one and a half hours later after much phoning by the supervisor at our post office we were informed that no-one knew what had happened but the cheque had 'just' now been processed and forwarded to my bank. No -one knew what happened. Well I did, people not doing their ....... job properly.
Calm down dear.
These are Eider ducks playing in the surf. These are at Blackdog, south of us, north of Aberdeen. The DP took the pictures, of course, whilst bring youngest daughter from the train station to here, last Sunday.
She has been volunteering at the Loch of Strathbeg Bird reserve this week. She has alternated between being badly sunburnt (despite factor 30) and drowned. Clearing ditches, removing fences, barbed wire, and removing ragwort. She's a lot fitter tho sore!
These pictures were taken at Cairnbulg Harbour. Isn't the water clear?
It is a very small harbour. With pleasure boats and lobster fishing boats, unlike the big harbours of Fraserburgh and Peterhead which can be pretty mucky.
Right thats the water, now the fire. Tuesday was wood burning stove installation day.
A lot of dust, hence the dust covers, as the fitter made the hole bigger and - well, made lots of dust.
I was banished for the day. I had my weekly coffee morning in Fraserburgh where we finalised the arrangements for the childrens activity mornings we are doing at the Lighthouse Museum in July. Approval was given to my press release. Lunch at the Lighthouse Museum where the Business Manager also approved my press release. I returned home but was sent to the summerhoose for the afternoon, such hardship!
The following day, where are we, Wednesday I went off to my Art class and returned to find the DP had erected the shelf . This stops the heat from the fire melting the tele. I might just remove said shelf if there is any more football.
So I just had to spend the whole afternoon vacuuming, I even vacuumed the walls, the shelves were wiped down, the books were vacuumed, the cats left home, the curtains vacuumed. It worked! I could go in the room and not wheeze and have to be dragged out blue in colour.
Today is our wedding anniversary. Tonight the concrete/cement whatever will be set and we can light the fire!
I have a bucket of water ready - just in case. Tho as the DP says thats for him to throw over me if I get too excited.
Fire and Water!
