But something cropped up and my afternoon date had to call off which was doubly unfortunate as it meant not seeing said friend and removing my excuse for not cleaning.
Is it just me or do others have to select their clothing for cleaning knowing that it will end up bleach-spattered? Just me then.
So it was old shorts and even older t-shirt. And it wasn't until I was bent over the bath that I remembered why I stopped wearing these shorts: the builder's bum effect. Combined with my rather unlovely singing voice I created - well, you can imagine it for yourself.
But do look at these wonderful creatures.
Combined toothbrush holder and timer. I've bought them for the grandchildren but might have to get one for myself.
And it's enabled me to prove to Husband what I've said ever since we had our new toothbrush: it doesn't clean for 2 minutes as it claims. It takes an extra 2 beeps to make it to 2 minutes.
Speaking of Husband, he went to the doctor and chemist this afternoon. When he got back he said, 'I shouldn't be allowed to go to Sketty; I've bought peanuts.'
'Did you get me anything?' (I don't like the raw fruit and nut mix he buys.)
'No, you're on a diet.'
'So are you! And anyway, that's not the point. And, what's more, if someone buys you something it's only polite to eat it.'
As he well knows and only didn't to upset me - just because he had to go to the doctor because I thought I'd ordered a repeat prescription for him but it turns out I hadn't. As he found out when he arrived at the surgery to collect it.
'Why would you say you'd ordered it if you hadn't?'
'Well, obviously I thought I had. I mean I didn't deliberately tell you I've ordered it just so I could see you go there to find out I hadn't. that would be silly.'
