We didnt have reliable net over w/end- like a lot of BT customers apparently.
Am waiting, for the 2cnd day for a delivery of Ikea furniture. Not impressed, by delivery company, but WAS by local Ikea stores' customer services person. He also tried various contact numbers for the delivery co. He got engaged tones, I got a recorded message! They could still deliver up to 8pm tonight according to him, but I doubt it. I was told 4pm......
Shall be on the phone again, to them early tomorrow morning, just as today. Not helped by daughter starting nights again, so the extra noise if tomorrow onwards wont be appreciated.
Trouble is we DO want the cabinet- first spotted over 12 mths ago. We have a lot of lovely glass from parents house that we want to display/use & both OH & me liked this cabinet.Once I'd sorted out how we got it delivered we were going to get it, but first Dad was ill, then MIL died suddenly, then I got my diagnosis & subsequent surgery & chemo so buying furniture wasnt exactly a priority.
This Saturday after a good time in NWales as planned, am driving back along M56 & with both OH & daughter asleep & me getting dozy too- not sensible- I woke them up & said t'was driving to Ikea for a break! After a coffee & cake we wandered around downstairs & spotted the cabinet, in the colour we wanted, at below half price & only 1 left!! Decision made- no brainer really. Climbing over loaded trolleys, should've rung warning bells, to organise the delivery when OH around to assemble etc etc. At least it's me doing the sorting/nagging as OH was very very angry yesterday & I wouldnt like to think what would have gone on if he'd tried to sort.
As long as it arrives before this friday, when OH comes back, I shall be happy. Ok, am climbing over our furniture here as we'd moved things to clear a big space for packaging & assembly, but I can cope with that.
Anyway, spent a happy day today doing all sorts in the garden. Note stuck on front door, in case delivery- ha- & plan to use same note if am outside again when due.
Sorry to go on at length, but know you'll understand.Dont need this stress......
Daughter has just saved herself a lot of £ swopping car insurance companies for the same amount of cover. She even tried asking her existing co to price match, but they wouldnt budge, so she did! Now shall I get the 2cnd car discount or shall I enquire about t'other co too? as recommended by a car journalist in paper.
Oh & BTW have had pappadrelle pasta with melted gruyere & cream- very yummy. J.
