|From the 'Bumpy cards' workshop..(next week actually, panic over!)|
My to do list for today is looking a bit miserable. Who knew that Mr Dunnit would decide that today would be a day off for him too! I didn't, for sure, so I brought forward a couple of 'we' plans. We had to go to the mobile phone shop. Safer to go in a pair; the young-impatient-and-bloody-bored 'assistants' aren't so intimidating when you go with your life mate...instead of wanting to run away and weep, we get giggly and silly. It makes the young even more bored. And unable to hide it. But really, this phone stuff - it makes me lose the will to live. Are me and Mr Dunnit the only people in the world who don't know how many free minutes, talk- time and data our phone deals provide? It's not information we spout at dinner parties - although I do know people who are intimate with such figures. I'm so *YAWN*, sorry to be rude, *YAWN*, but it's not *YAWN* interesting. We can't be the only people who really want it all to be streamlined and simplified. Honestly, it's as complicated as learning to use the damn things. Although of course, I have been blinded by the convenience of a mobile phone and don't want to give mine up any time. I plan to use it till it falls apart though, I'm not about about to 'upgrade', 'switch', 'play my contract' or anything else. I can't be bothered. I don't want the re-learning humiliation. Or the cost, frankly. Mr Dunnit needs a new one because the creeping dust generated by his joinery work is starting to play havoc with his buttons. No, really. But we didn't get one. What we did get was a MAGAZINE full of tariffs and choices and Ohh em gee, stuff that I am so not getting involved with. Although of course, I will have to. Because in order to make an informed decision, Mr Dunnit will need to see previous bills and history for his current phone. And if I don't get involved.....it'll be strewn across two tables and NEVER PUT AWAY. There. See. I knew this complicated stuff would make me grumpy! Argh.
Meanwhile, have a lovely lovely long weekend. Take a chance to have a break, you deserve it. ENJOY!
