You don’t need to read this anymore as it’s all in the title….. 😆 I’m kidding of course there will be a million more witticisms for you to look forward too… 😉🤣
Coffee and the last of the Banana bread to start the day while Craig and I talked all things camper van…. it seems to be a lovely morning so shorts on ready for Beith Trust food deliveries. Out at 10 and got Abbie filled up ready to go… such a difference having the space in the van rather than trying to put in all in the Beetle 🚗🤣
So had my usual lovely chats and there a good few now that I look forward to catching up with. They all live alone and are shielding and can’t get out of the house so it’s really nice to take a bit of time and chat about what’s been going on. One lady gave me another book to read!
Was out for over 3 hours today as one of the addresses was wrong but had a lovely chat with a man in the wrong house! Then had to drive out to Kilbirnie for the correct one. So all good, taking it in my stride now and enjoying the catch up with people. Yet again the heavens opened just before my last 2 deliveries. The sky had gone black and the rain pelted down. So my shorts and T-shirt combo wasn’t the best but at least there was less to get soaked! A wee drowned rat made the last 2 deliveries then off to the Post Office and finally to the little gift shop!!
The shop has been really busy since she opened on Monday. She has loads of new stock but says that so much of it has gone already. I’m so pleased for her! Another few folk came in while we were gabbing and said they were so pleased she was back.
So I forgot to tell you a wee drama that came to light yesterday morning…. remember Craig was cleaning on Monday when we went crazy and did the whole house. Well… Craig is very thorough when he cleans. He’s really good but he can be pretty ruthless…. everything is moved, put away, not always in the right place, maybe just a random space he found but that’s ok as his cleaning is exceptional. Oh and he does use really good tea towels sometimes but again, he gets a good finish so shouldn’t complain.
He’d bought me two new iPhone charger cables for the van which I hadn’t fitted yet so I did a quick hunt of the house on Tuesday morning when I left for the cash and carry…. no sign… not unusual as they would be surplus to Craig’s cleaning requirements so would be stashed somewhere safe. Went back into the room to say bye and as he was awake I asked if he’d seen them…. no… maybe in the basket of surplus stuff he’d taken into the office… I checked… nope not there…. I hear the voice shouting “Eh Jules……. (🤦🏻♀️) were they still in the amazon box?” Eh yeah………… “hmmmmm I think I might have burnt them” he says. 😳
Burnt them. In the fire. Gone. Brand new. Oops. The old me would have been horrified at the waste… the new me… laughed and shrugged my shoulders. The right person did it. Asked him today if he’s ordered replacements. Yes. Good. DO NOT BURN THEM THIS TIME!!!! 😘
Another giggle this week has been the very-cheap-in-the-sale-coz-of-bashed-box handheld hoover for the van….. it’s a Ryobi which is apparently “a good one” as my Nana would say! Gets it home and needs a Ryobi battery pack for it to work but as it’s a good one it’s worth getting.
Battery comes, it’s a big one but it’s “a good one”…. how do you charge it?!? Hmmmmm it needs a Ryobi battery charger!!!!!! 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ honestly. Craig said yeah had no idea when we got such a great deal I’d spend more on everything else than I did on the hoover….. it’s done now and I will use it to rid Abbie of every little Border Collie hair I can find!! (Wish me luck!)
In COVID news today, Scotland saw one more death taking us to 2,486 with another 8 new confirmed cases taking us to a total of 18,259 cases in total.
The total UK numbers show an increase in cases week on week with 176 deaths yesterday taking us to 43,906 in total. Leicester is still on a local lockdown due to a spike in cases over the last week there.
The US is still suffering from increased cases and hasn’t yet come out of the first wave. Oh and they seem to have bought up all stocks of the Ebola drug remdesivir which means that UK and Europe won’t have access to stocks until October. Maybe be a bit better if the world worked together on vaccines?!? Just saying…. 🌈
They are warning that we need to be very careful in winter if there’s still no vaccine. Could be scare mongering but worth being aware of.
Stay safe everyone 🧡🧡🧡
