You Could Have Told Me …..

23 Feb

It was going to be one of ‘those’ days!

—Not only did I put my undies on back to front but also inside out

—Error was not discovered until after I had put my trousers on and I had stood up (a struggle)

—While making scrambled eggs the egg shell fell to the floor, as I moved to kick it out the way (I cannot bend down to pick anything up) crushed it into my big toe resulting in shell pushed under toe nail and squishy gunk on the skin.

—Fancied toast but when I opened the cupboard I discovered an onion shooting towards the stars, plus ‘someone’ tidied the contents and I cannot feel where it is (or bend down to see where it is)

—Tried making toast under the grill.  Oh well, a bit of charcoal is good for the digestive system, right?

Did someone move the thirteenth to today?

    I’m a little confused. You fancied some toast but when you opened the cupboard you saw onions gone to seed and a rearranged cupboard? Then you tried to make toast in the oven? I guess I thought you went into the cupboard looking for bread… Then I thought, Could it be a toaster she was looking for? Because if you hadn’t found the bread how would you have been attempting to make toast without it?

      The cupboard had been tidied, unbeknown to me, toaster not in usual place, could not feel it, cannot bend down to see where it is. Made toast using the grill instead. In the same cupboard an onion had sent out a growth about 18 inches long. It’s the cupboard between oven and washing machine.

    Hi A-M

    Who would have tried to be so helpful to you? I guess you have all the grab tools going, it’s a pity there isn’t a magnet in the shape of a spade on a manageable stick that could have enticed the toaster to a sensible position. I guess though, the toaster would have to be on a shelf where you could retrieve the flex and plug it in. Clearer-uppers should and need to learn to communicate with the people they think they are helping before they start being helpful!

    Glad you’ve got the patience of a saint and have other options.

      It’s been months since I’ve craved toast, it’s in a cupboard that has likely not been touched for a couple of months.
