Signs I have seen in recent weeks that have brought a smile to my face:

‘Ex-Catalogue Furniture Shop. We sell Wardrobes, Beds and Chester Draws.’

‘Trophy Pet Foods. None of our products are tested on animals….guaranteed.’

Not impressed

I ordered a watch and my mother-in-law’s birthday present online from a well known department store last night. I entered my address and card details. I then got a confirmation email with the wrong delivery address. It was the address I used to live at. Grr. Customer services was closed so I rang up this morning. Apparently, there is nothing they can do because I left it longer than 30 mins to call them (YOU WERE CLOSED. GRRR), I just have to hope that whoever lives there now doesn’t sign for it and sends it back. How unimpressed am I? VERY.

Not a lot really

I keep writing posts in my head, usually at around 2am when feeding Scrap (as in scrap of nothing as he is now 6 weeks old and still 5oz below his birth weight. I think we will still be calling him this when he is 6 foot tall tho!). By the time I am awake and near a computer I have completely forgotten what I was planning to say. So you’ll just have to take my word for it that despite having a baby and not getting much sleep, I can still manage to be witty, humourous and thought-provoking. Really, I can. I also haven’t lost the ability to spell or read or speak in coherent sentences.

On a different note, I would like to mention that this week is the week that Knitting Will Resume. I was given this for my birthday (it was last week by the way. Mr WF and I managed to go out for dinner without the Scrap. It was wonderful). But I am not allowing myself to even select something I would like to make from it until I have finished making at least one of the many things I started knitting for the Scrap but never finished. I am going to try and complete his blanket in the next few weeks. This may be unreaslistic but we’ll see. Oh how wonderful it would be to not be at work AND have time to make things.
