Interesting bit about pelargoniums growing on the beach in South Africa. I have never been to South Africa, but I bought some seeds back that I took off of a plant on the beach in Western Australia. We called it "peppermint beach" not because it smelt of peppermint, but that was the beach I took it off. Happy days.
I spent some time on the phone to my electrickery supplier tonight. I had a new meter fitted last year. When it first got read before Christmas,they mixed around the night and day units. I read it and of course the figures dont match. I know that I use much more in the day than at night, but they mixed them up. I think its sorted now. Also I've been overpaying. Cue a refund and a reduction in the direct debit.
Yes I should have picked it up sooner, but last year was a bit of a nightmare with his mum and my dad dying in the same year. Checking meter readings was the last thing on my mind.
I went to mums today and she was not in. Hmm. New shoes out of box so she had gone out. I tracked her down to a local hostelry, with her two remaining sisters and two of my cousins. We joined them for lunch as it was Aunty Shirleys 80th Birthday, and she wanted to go out for lunch for her Birthday. She doesn't know that there is a surprise party planned for Sunday in another local hostelry.
