Where’s the chocolate?


I’m in a bad mood.  I need lots of chocolate: 

On being a clumsy twit: Yesterday I was trying to help my little boy fix his bicycle chain.  We managed to sort it but after a few minutes of cycling, it fell off again.  And on it went like this for about an hour so I told him to use his sister’s bike but he said it had a loud squeak which embarrassed him.  I listened and it did have a squeak.  A very loud one.  So I went to get the can of de-squeaker which was located right at the very top of the shelves in the garage.   I fell off the step-ladder, was hit in the mouth on the way down by a wooden plank and now I have a fat lip, a broken tooth and it’s a bank holiday so the dentist is closed.

On effing cars: Can you believe I still haven’t got my car back?  A complete comedy of errors my auto-lark has turned out to be.  Three rear axles later and I still haven’t got the right one for my car.  Do these car guys actually know what a rear axle is?  Or do they just hear a female voice and decide to have a laugh?  I’m stuck now because they won’t refund my money because they are reserving their right to replace the item.  And because I stupidly didn’t get a receipt, I have to wait for the replacement of which they are tormentingly taking their time about. 

So, next week I have to pull off a commuting miracle.  My kids are back at school on Monday when I have to get my son to breakfast club by 8.15am (no sooner  because they won’t allow it).   The club is held at the school.  [distance from our house to school = 2.8 miles]  Then after dropping him off there, I have to get my own backside to work for 8.40am.  [distance from school to place of work = 3.5 miles]

Does anyone know of a bus route that will acommodate me?  A taxi ride that won’t cost me a tenner a day?  I could cycle but I still wouldn’t get to work on time.  Horse and cart?  A dragon perhaps?  Flying pig?  Time machine?  I’d even risk bumping into a dalek if a tardis would help me out.

It’s all George Bush’s fault.

  1. I wonder if the car fixers can provide you with a courtesy car. I mean they are taking a hell of a long time and it is very inconvenient to you…

    My sister broke her front tooth and they have fixed it beautifully. The can do clever things these days – don’t despair. I hope your lip is healing well. Poor sausage. That was not your day was it. Bloody Bush.

    No courtesy car Bindi. I tried to do it on the cheap. Never again.
