I'm not sure if I learnt anything new as such this weekend - although I did discover a few things.
The first was that if you place an order, during the sale, with Next (even if these items are not even in the sale) they will not arrive within the usual day or so. No they will all arrive in dribs and drabs over the following WEEKS!
I also discovered that you CAN NOT rely an a teenage boy. And the surprising thing is that I knew this already.
But, fool that I am, I trusted that when he requested me to order and fetch a water-cooling system for his PC he had checked it would fit!
So I also discovered/learnt that you can fit a quart in a pint pot but it involves cut fingers, the odd curse, several losses of temper and the removal of other objects to facilitate said operation.
Finally I discovered that fellow blog readers are wonderful people and would like to say a HUGE thank you for all the lovely, encouraging, kind and wonderful comments left over the last week or two. If any of you are ever visiting the Nottingham area you are more than welcome to pop in for a cuppa and a chat.
I'm off now to visit YOUR blogs (so you better have something for me to read :) )
