Afternoon all,

to try and balance my bike tyre changing numptiness I've invested in some metal tyre levers- hopefully this should now mean that I don't get a chance to use them.

Top streaking there Debbo.

I thought I would be right clever and do a 'click and collect' at the well known superstore so I loaded my basket on Saturday night (work has its uses) and was amazed how easy it was with the 'shopping list application' I chose the store I wanted to pick it all up from and then my time slot, slotted in between swim and gym, with temperatures hovering on freezing no chance of anything going off in the car while I produce a pile of sweat in the gym. I wander in to the store ( I am not that familiar with big shops) and queue up at customer service under a big sign saying 'click n collect' Once I got to the end of the queue which was also the queue of shame for fags, I announce that my name was Meldy and I was here to pick up my shopping. The lady informed me I needed to go to the bottom of the main car park to pick up my groceries, I didnt think I smelt that bad?  It transpires that the queue I was in was under an advert for 'CnC' rrather than the actual collection point ... I clicked
Sooooooooo all the way to the bottom of the car park to collect my shopping.  Apparently I should have had an email to confirm something ??  No text from Tescos to say 'your shopping is ready' ?? Nope.    Operator error more than likely.  Did I have my list on me? No.  All the way home in the effing school traffic to retrieve my list and then back to the store to trudge round trying to find random items such as dessimated coconut and vaccum packed chestnuts and icing sugar .... no wonder people get stressed at Christmas!!!   I'm only making 3 puddings and a main course!!
1.15hrs in the gym to unwind and home too late to make the cake so I shall do that one tomorrow

morning. lets hope the motorways are kind to me today

11/12/2012 at 06:44

Do take care, Seren. I've just waved Jjunior off to work, on roads that I couldn't run on, they were so icy. I shall be tracking her (it's an iPhone app) until I know she's safe.

Meldy, did you give anyone a *flat stare*? Heehee. Nothing like convenience shopping is there. I used to use Ocado all the time until, ironically, Jjunior started working for Waitrose. The discount can't be applied to online shopping (yet) so we have to schlep 15 miles to use it! lol.

Online is very good if you're an impulsive shopper. It curbs that "oooh - that looks tasty!" urge.

"highlight was getting a 6 ft gate and a 10ft scaffold board in my yaris"

I'm with debbo - that sounds most uncomfortable.

re mojo - happy for those that have found it, frustrated that I've not been able to use mine this morning. But at least I'm in me togs so shall pop out when it looks safe to do so.

11/12/2012 at 08:59

haha schmunkee... it's easy to navigate in 'ding, where abouts were you?

11/12/2012 at 09:22

Morning all,

it's a bit crunchy out there- fingers crossed everyone gets about safely today.

Meldy, it's a well known fact that decimated coconut is an invention of the devil, so probably best left on the supermarket shelf.

FeFe - I didn't fall off on the black ice the other day, we walked the patch that we thought was going to be icy (as it's prone to standing water) and we all stayed on. 

It is very brisk today.  I delayed my run to lunchtime and it's still very slippy in the shade.  In the sun though, it's truly beautiful.  Crisp and clear and a lovely blue sky.

Have you made it out Jj?  And is Jjunior safely at work?

So, how do you get a 6ft thingy and a 10ft wotsit in a Yaris?

Meldy - arghhhh!!!!!!

Chav - I was on the Queen's Road (?) right in the Centre. Was v confusing. Was going away from my intended venue and ended up in the Young Offenders Institute .

Then on the way home I took a wrong turn and was heading for the YOI again

I blame the Sat Nav

Tom's been on dishwashing duty so I dread to think what my kitchen looks or smells like.

I wimped out of todays run. I've been very tired today. Mostly i think on account of running a marathon in my sleep last night!
