Christmas in a cell?
8.00am to the post office and sainsburys for missed parcels and final bits.
9.30 home, coffee and list writing
10.15 - hoovering interrupted by loud knocking at the door. A burly man in a high vis jacket with black epaulettes. Stomach turned - a policeman at the door. I stared preparing myself for the worst.
"Is that your car outside?"
"Yes that's mine."
"Have you put petrol in it this morning?"
"Yes - - Oh my God - I havent' paid!!!" Hand flies to mouth - "I can't believe I did that". Suddenly became a gabbling wreck as I pulled off my slippers to put on shoes promising to pay immendiately and wondering what was going to happen next. Christmas in a cell?
"Don't worry" he said. "Just pop down and pay and we'll say no more. Don't panic get yourself a drink and calm down!"
I hurtled down to the shop and confessed to being the appalling woman who had forgotten to pay. The ladies there were great - told me not to worry - it's not a problem - it happens!
So sorry I said. I really must be menopausal!
Hope Christmas doesn't addle your brain!
