OMG what an awful day

Hello peeps

What an awful day yesterday and today has been, ordered a new phone for Alan online from Carphone Warehouse on Thursday and it came with a free Samsung 2 7.0 tablet but no SIM card, for the phone so rang them up and they said I could get one from their branch at Marsh Mills in Plymouth so travelled the 10 miles to branch queued 20 minutes got to counter and was told they had none in stock and that I would get one in their branch in New George Street which is in Plymouth Town Centre so off I went again a further 5 miles parked the car walked up to the branch, bearing in mind that to walk any distance is quite painful and I use crutches got to the branch queued again for a further 10 minutes only to be told (guess.......) they had none in stock and I would have to go to their branch in the Mall, could feel my blood beginning to boil at this point.

So off I went again got to the Mall, you guessed it queued again but this time they had one in stock, the staff in their were falling over themselves to help me, got me a chair to sit on, offered me a drink and sorted everything out including keeping Alan's old number.

I was shattered when I got home fell asleep in my chair around 7pm and woke up when Alan shook me to say come to bed.

This morning was getting tidied up before getting ready to go over to Rachel's for a crafty afternoon stretched up to put a skirt in the wardrobe and my back gave way so now I can hardly walk or move without shooting pains in my back and down my left leg so no crafting with Rachel today.  Boo hoo.

I do have a couple of cards to show you but may have trouble getting them onto my blog as my memory card has broken and I can't get the pictures off it. So am trying something different.  my neighbour has asked me to make a couple of plain cards for posting so I came up with these yesterday before I went on my mega trip.  Hope you like them.

Well that's it for me for today, have been doing a lot of blog hopping today but will keep checking your brilliant work over the next few hours until bedtime.

Loads of love
