I’ve been off sick for a while and now that I am feeling better am severely lacking in human contact – I’ve always said that I couldn’t be one of those couples who work and live together and now I have been through an imposed confinement with my husband. (He has been a complete darling and has put up with a LOT but enough is enough.)
So I have my theory driving test tomorrow. I think I have the theory part off pat but the hazard perception is another matter. The first time I did the proper test test (if you get my meaning) today I scored 44 out of 75 and the DVD had the audacity to say that I had passed but I might want to consult with my instructor for further advice prior to the real thing – or something like that I was a little busy checking what the minimum required mark was only to find that it was in fact 44 and maybe the suggestion wasn’t quite as cheeky as I suggested to the DVD. It was downhill from there but I think that the program took offence to the suggestions I may have made about its mother and hasn’t been responded to my delicate taps on the keyboard, I tried this after the mouse seemed to have sided with the DVD and developed a dodgy left click – just for this program apparently, its fine for anything else.
Meanwhile we had a new stair and landing carpet fitted today. My other half on finally getting out of bed at 16:30 ish after I had served him bagels (nothing else) – he does work nights he isn’t just lazy – said ‘Is this the colour we ordered?’
Him: ‘I thought it was darker than this’
Me: ‘Yes, it’s definitely the right one’
Him: ‘Oh, this looks dark. But I know it is going dark’ (And it was going dark outside but strangely we do have these electric light thingies.)
Me: Well what do you say to that – This one looks darker but you think it’s not the one we ordered which was darker! Oh, OK. – I of course said nothing. He had just got up!
