A flat rainbow!!!
Yes, I had a VERY senior moment.
And I feel simply dreadful.
I have a lovely blogger friend called Pussycat.
She phoned me a month ago to say she would be here last weekend.
Could we meet at the airport for breakfast and a good catch-up.
I was thrilled.
She phoned me a week before the time to remind me.
And I put it on my phone.
On the Friday night Mex and I went to a live show.
And I put my phone off.
More about the show in a minute.
When I switched it on I never noticed I had no signal.
It was only when my cousin phoned me in the afternoon and asked why my phone was off that I realised something was wrong.
I took the battery out and put it back.
And up came a message to say Robyn was at the airport.
I have phoned her and grovelled.
But, I will do it again.
I am so, so, sorry my friend.
Please forgive me.
In my defence the carpet people came around on Saturday morning to do the carpets AGAIN.
I spent the first couple of hours of the morning helping Mex move the furniture out of the two bedrooms.
Believe it not they STILL have not done them properly.
Does no-one have pride in their work anymore?
We have given up.
Mex has also given up on the ceiling.
He has run out of oomph.
We are going to settle for downlights.
Hide the problem.
Back to the show.
It was quite an experience.
One that I don’t think I want to repeat.
We went to watch a black comedian.
One that I watch on TV and really like.
He can be very funny.
The show was supposed to start at eight.
At 8:25 people were still streaming in!!!
This is what is called “African Time”
Then, through the entire show people were walking in and out.
Think they must have been drinking litres of beer.
And it needed to leave the building.
Given that we had arrived at a quarter to eight.
And it was cold.
And the seats were uncomfortable.
I was NOT a happy Granny.
At twenty to ten he said “thanks for being here” jumped off the stage and out the door.
When we drove past the airport a plane was just taking off.
I think he must have been on it.
Oh well, one lives and learns.
Life has been a bit hectic.
I am working seven hours instead of four.
Visiting the folks.
Doing the shopping.
Picking up dog poop and cooking supper.
And, falling into bed at eight.
Am feeling my age.
Just a bit.
