GeneralGah! Can I have a better day today? PinprotectorOriginalGriff20-Jan-14 22:59 
Yesterday was a stupid day: my reading glasses fell apart, and so I had to scrabble round on the carpet looking for a teeny, tiny little screw (without my make-little-things-bigger glasses) until I found it, then it wouldn't go back in without spinning round and round uselessly.
 
OK, trip to the opticians, get 'em fixed. New screw, spinning round and round...Oh oh... Took the nice lady about half an hour to fix 'em, no charge (which was nice) and then found out I am due another eye test (my mother had glaucoma so I have to have annual tests instead of bi-annual). Ok, arrange that for later in the week.
 
Pull out of the parking space to drive home...clunk, clunk, clunk... WTF | :WTF:
Don't go home. Go to garage. CV joint has gone on the right front. They will order the parts, in today, will fix it tomorrow. Get home, and realize that it's lunchtime Monday and due to the two appointments I didn't know I was going to get, I'm already over a day late for the week... Sigh | :sigh:
 
Then 1AM, I'm woken by Herself yelling at the smoke detector to shut up. Not, you will note, by the smoke detector, or by Herself dealing with the smoke detector - just by her yelling at it from the comfort of the nice warm bed she is not about to get out of.
 
Get out of nice warm bed. Open smoke detector, remove battery. Back to bed.
 
*BEEP* -yelling-
 
Get out of nice warm bed. Open other smoke detector, remove battery. Back to bed.
 
*BEEP* -yelling-
 
Get out of nice warm bed. Look at both smoke detectors with torch. Neither have any battery or mains connector. *BEEP*. It's the Carbon Monoxide detector. Locate. Can't find battery. *BEEP* It's screwed together, so lights on, find screwdriver, open. *BEEP* Can't see battery. Get reading glasses, read sticker on *BEEP* inside: "no battery, when it beeps replace whole unit". *BEEP* "Cut this wire to stop beeping". Scissors, scissors...cut wire. Ahhhh....
 
Back up to now cold bed. Herself snoring away like nothing was happening, myself now wide awake...
 
So I'm now over a day behind schedule, tired, and just a touch elephanted off!
 
How's your week going? Good I hope! Laugh | :laugh:
