Yuck, this is the field outside the house yesterday. Everywhere is flooded. Fool that l am, l still went for my run round to Wendy's first thing in the morning. The wind was blowing me backwards all the way and l arrived in true drowned rat style carrying more water on me than your average sponge. My only consolation was that the wind would be behind me blowing me home on the way back.
I am bereft, l am shineless, l have lost my nice new shiny phone toy. Actually l handed it back to Tescos as l only realised yesterday that it hadn't come with USB cable or softwear for camera. Have been told that this is LG (and many others) marketing. You have to go online and buy the 'extras' (like you could use the MP3 or camera without these bits) later. Hmmmmm,oh no you don't. Took my shiny little pal back to Tesco and met a lovely sales assistant who really knew her stuff. This woman obviously recognised a phonephobe at 40 paces and knew exactly how to deal with one. She pointed me in the directon of a Samsung phone that is apparently far easier to use and even has all its bits and pieces as part of the price.
Back home to spend another afternoon with little instruction booklet, pot of tea, mince pie and now sticky phone. Guess what, l can even manage the radio! This is a first for me. I shall try it out when l run this morning.
Harry was very impressed by all the comments he caused yesterday. To celebrate his newfound fame he polished off the rest of his Christmas cookie last night. He then passed out on the sofa while l moved the other cookies further up the tree.
