When you find out the aunty with the massive moustache is coming round for dinner today.
Just started my second week off work. Decided to go out for a haircut then a quick trip to the Tesco Express at the Greengate junction to do the weekly food shop. Once I got to the self-service till, all hell broke loose. First I discovered one item was split open , so had to run off to get a replacement. I came back to realise stupidly that I’d left my wallet on the till unattended. Whoops!. Then one of the shopping bags broke at the handle, so I had to buy a couple more, cos lots of shopping… Then the 50 pence piece I put into the machine jammed and the staff nearly forgot to give me the change from the bags. Thanks God I’m home now
Just had some good news this evening. The tube train strikes called by the unions for most of this week have been postponed, although new potential strike action has been called for early September. Nevertheless I am very relieved. Happy, happy, joy, joy!!
I managed to plan THREE alternative routes with the help of the TfL Journey Planner to get into work, but for now I can breathe easy, unlike the poor commuters in the District Line train above.
