Delivery Day . . .

Went to bed with a mildly sore right shoulder, due, no doubt to yesterday’s injection – but what went in the right side ? I am sure the Nurse said it at the time, but do I remember ? – obviously not. Took some Paracetamol which did not seem to have much effect.

Slept until 10.00 am and got up to see what was happening on the Tesco front . . .

The new Microwave has been delivered. The delivery man switched it on and it all lit up, so now we have to read the manual . . . Oh Joy !

Update at 1.30 pm . . .

The tension mounts . . .

Tesco arrived at 2.54 pm, but I failed to get a picture as I had intended. We have unloaded all we can to the kitchen. I am now in a state of collapse, but my OH is still on her feet and fighting the intruders. But, with this delivery and a new microwave – what larks !
