Stuck in The Snow
I am not going to say much today because someone ( a small black furry someone) is getting on my nerves! It isn’t lack of exercise and it isn’t lack of food – he has had normal quotas of both – so he must just have got out of the wrong side of his bed this morning and the sooner he is back in it and can start afresh tomorrow the better!
I was expecting a supermarket delivery in the middle of the day – an early easter egg from my parents. I got a text that it would be between 11 and 12 so I opted to wait for the dog walk until afterwards. at 13;30 still no sign and I was getting a bit miffed to be honest. 13:45 a phone call from the driver apologising because he “has got stuck in the snow” really? REALLY? where is he coming from the north pole on a sled? We have had snow for the past two weeks (it might not be that long I have lost count but it is days and days anyway) and the roads are all clear. This morning the snow was melting – so how did this hapless individual get stuck in snow?
I simply asked how long he planned to be and he said he didn’t know so I indicated I would be taking the dogs out, having made them wait, and I would be gone an hour. He eventually arrived at 14:20. This may sound whiny but it isn’t meant to, I truly appreciate the gift, but what does my mother think I am going to do with 3kg of onions? If you have any recipes that use up a kilo of onions please add them in the comments at the bottom …

And having dribbled on top of one’s own head what possesses one to go sit in the mud during a blizzard to wait two hours for tea? It is okay I did not let him sit there for two hours I made him come back in but he seriously made me let him out so he could sit in the mud in a snow storm … I do despair sometimes but I am not sure if it his sanity in question or mine!
And wouldn’t you know it – now I am just about ready for an early night to soothe my nerves a certain someone (you know the small black furry someone) is fast asleep and snoring on the sofa!
