I spent ages at the jewellers today. Mother in Law used to wear a couple of three stone diamond rings, always referred to as her knuckledusters. Following her demise a couple of years ago, the only thing left to be sorted is her jewellery. I made the proposal that her two granddaughters might like to have them, but as they are rather old fashioned, it is unlikely that they would wear them. The jeweller has taken out the stones, and is going to make two pairs of studs and two drop pendants out of them, so they have something modern, but with the old stones to remember her by.
I have to ring up the bird seed people tomorrow. the order placed for mum last week should have been delivered by now. Mum has the same problem as me, her deliveries often go to a parallel universe, because the road kinks and the straight bit is a different road.
I have got to the point when a pizza delivery man knocks on the door with a box, I ask, Is it paid for? No? well you probably want the next town then. I live on L Lane, which becomes L road in the next town, then L Lane again in the next village. Of course they number them again in each section, so there are three with my number. Confusing or what. The neighbours did manage to stop a tipper lorry from dropping a huge load on my drive once, when I was not in.
Time for bed again.
I suspect the mods will have a few complaints to clear up tomorrow.
