Scene: In Harris Scarfe: The Mall, yesterday afternoon........
MrsDrWho and I (exclaiming): Oh look, a Sunbeam Mixmaster on sale for $229-95 instead of $399!! What a bargain.
Me: Do you think they would let me put it on the lay-by???
MrsDrWho: Of course.
At the Lay-by counter 2 minutes later, after MrsDrWho has carried said Mixmaster 50 metres for me…..
Me: I would like to lay-by this please.
Surly Serving Woman, scanning: $299
MrsDrWho and I chorus: No, it is on sale for $229-95!!!
Surly Serving Woman: NO it scans as this. I will ring the manager and ask.
Meanwhile I traipsed back to the shelves and brought the price display. We are correct. She is not. Despite this…
Surly Serving Woman: No, it is $299 and we would offer you 10% off.
Me, assertively: If it is advertised at this price, it should be sold at this price.
Welcome to the House of Unfun: Yes, we have all been poorly. Peri has had a Lumpy Bumpy Thing under her eye. I put Brown Liquid Ointment on it and it has cleared up nicely now. Harki had a leg conniption and I took her to the Hostipal as I was worried she had hurt her cruchet ligament. All was well. It seems that she felt well and her extra post-Arthritis injections running about and all the Vetty manipulations of her hips had made them a bit sensitive. A bad knock or a sideswipe from Peri could make her hoppy now. The Doctor gave me some tablets in case she was in pain, but she is now just Hop-a-long Harki who plays with her ball in a new and interesting way for a bit. I am poorly too, the Clinic squeezed me in for some transfusions over two days before the holidays started. I will be an Unreliable Blogger, I expect, for the next 6 months or so. I anticipate having to take some boogelly but helpful drugs soon, where upon I will have side effects!!! I have had lovely emails and comments concerned about my wellbeing: Thank you!!
Whilst ensconced in a mostly seated position over the last week or so I have completed some craft.
The Samuel Clemens Socks are complete. Finally. At last. Thank heavens. I had barely 2 metres of wool left over. These were endlessly long and boring and take note, Mr Madcage, these are the only socks I am ever knitting you!!!
I have made some different Calico Easter Eggs. This year it is a Bunny jumping over a green Moon. I do not know why the Bunny is jumping over the Moon, or what the Moon is green........
Next I obsessively made Bunny Toss Bunnies and now I don't give a toss anymore, but I'm sure they're up for it!!!
I have been doing some Easter cooking and I have been sewing and the Big Bad Baby Blanket is so finished I am wondering why I haven't taken a photo of it to post today!! So the next post will be the cooking, the sewing and the 4B as well as photos from Peter Cundall's Surprise 80th Birthday party in City Park!! And there will be Labrador pictures as well!!!! (Of course)
Oh I have a new book, fittingly: Chocolate from Donna Hay. And, best of all, it wasn't $25, but $16-95 and I used my Christmas gift card so it was free!!!!
