I would like to think that I am relatively organised person. I’m not perfect by any means, especially in the morning. Due to this fact I have to have everything for the morning sorted and in place the night before. Clothes laid out, lunch made, bag packed and shower before bed. On the Ships shopping day this also means having to ensure that the Motherships outfit is also laid out. Those mornings I head for the late train, it saves for two trips into town and as long as I am in work for ten on that day it’s all good.
Last night everything was planned and all the essentials were laid out. This morning however my best laid plans fell to a complete arse. The Mothership likes to go quite slowly, the more you remind her you’re in a hurry, the slower she likes to go. I have to make sure I’m dressed before getting her dressed. Then it’s the brushing of the hair, the putting on of the coat and a squirt of perfume. Finally we are ready to depart. Then there was frost on the windows of the car. It’s like WTF!! Long story short, I missed the train, disaster. What I thought was the train pulling into the station, was it actually leaving as I stood with a bemused look on my face wondering what was going on, certainly not me to my destination anyway.
I walked back over to town and found the ships getting out the car, figured I better text my boss and considered my dilemma. The Fathership wanted me to take the day off, I think the shopping trip is a little less stressful when I’m there, but he wasn’t admitting that. I’ve three days to use up before the end of the month, so I texted and asked.
So here I sit, it’s a day off, but it’s not been a day off. I did 14 laps of the supermarket, 10 of the frozen food shop, and braved the bakery with an armful of both toilet and kitchen rolls. I then came home and cooked the three of us a fry, cleaned up, prepared dinner and put in a load of washing. I think I need a power nap.
On the plus side, one of my favourite shows that I had to watch clips of on You Tube has finally made it to UK tv. After a campaign which I believe was entitled something along the lines of Get Elly on the Telly, ITV2 has now started airing Ellen on weekdays. There is however a downside, ITV player is not on the Xbox and nor does it seem to be available on my Freesat just at the minute, which means that as I work during the day I am still going to be unable to watch the show. Today however as I was here anyway I could watch. I’m so glad someone with sense brought the show here, it’s a good un.
I’m now going to consider doing some ironing while finally getting around to watching the film Ex-Machina which I’ve wanted to see for a while, after all, disaster days have to have some perks right.
Wish me luck that I get some peace :)
