Boring day, devoted entirely to work, grey and cloudy and drizzly out, a bit chilly in. Too mean to put the heating on all day though, so I waited for Mr Dunnit to come home for lunch. He was a darling (as I predicted) and lit the wood burner for me. Told you I was lazy. During the course of the afternoon I decided to check the post. I find that I finish all the filing and 'posting' of invoices and blahdy blah, only to be faced with a fresh pile when I remember to check the post box. Arrgh. We don't have a letterbox in the door see, a metal box on the wall serves us - because I can't let Mr D ccut a hole in my nice bespoke front door. It's not over posh or special, it just deserves not to have a hole in it! Oh look, an unusual digression from me.
Anyway, the post. Junk. Invoices for accounts as correctly predicted (I'm good at predictions, have you noticed?).....and a lovely lovely surprise. Oh how I love a surprise!
Wrapped and posted abroad and containing artwork too. How marvellous. Even more marvellous - see the lovely set of stamps at left? Notice that she's not the skinny minny at right? I love that! I love these stamps. Thank you so much Amber and Pam...as gifts go, they're the best sort...I totally wasn't expecting them!
I appear to love a lot of things today. It's a result of sleep deprivation. Miss Dunnit went off on a *cough* History trip to Berlin with College today. And by today of course, I mean 2.30am. Half an hour before this deadline, we staggered into the car to find that the petrol warning light was not only on..but predicting 12 miles before breakdown. I guess, because it was only 8 miles to College and the waiting coach, I probably shouldn't have worried so much.....but this is a small market town and I have no idea how far I have to go to find 24 hour petrol. I am so unsophisticated. And apparently very scarey. The young man at the night till of the only open garage I could find en route seemed very scared by my gabbling relief. Or was it my bedhead and general bedraggled appearance because I'd tried to tough it out and stay up (and of course, failed miserably). We'll never know. So you see how the stamps are the bright side for today. Love that.
