    The parcel arrived today. It was carried by a courier owned by NZ Post, and delivered by the postie. The website "estimated delivery" was never going to happen - we don't have a postal delivery on Mondays (or Wednesdays, or Fridays...)

    We had one in a right quandary. He had arrived early but was required to take a picture of it "delivered" inside his time-slot. It seems stupid penalising them for being a few minutes early! I know the purpose of time-slots is so that people can arrange to be in but even so.

    Falatious accuracy. You that you can deliver within a fixed time and then blame the underpaid driver because s/he can't keep to your imaginary friend's timings... :confused:

    Haha! Nearly a tricky misspelling there. It's fallacious. ;)

    My sister sent me an advent calendar of different teas. Just had 1st December. A blood orange flavoured rooibos tea. Happy to say it is delicious!

    No point in being subtle here, is there?

    After about 10 years. the battery in hubby's Casio calculator finally gave up. I was amazed to find I actually had the right battery replacement in my magic box of tricks. Managed to unscrew the tiny screw on the back and replace the battery. By the way, I must do some experiments to find out something. Is the tiny screwdriver magnetic? Or was the screw? Very handy the screw staying on the screwdriver head until put back in.

    What is this "Subtle" of which you speak?

    Magnetic screwdrives are quite common now, especially the smaller sizes, it makes things a lot easier, unless you have brass screws!

    Having suffered all day yesterday and most of today with a migraine, in desperation I took a mug of a Chinese lemongrass tisane which I get from my Thai cafe. I don't think the Chinese connect those two - lemon and grass - into one plant, because the result is magic! Clear head and definitely feel good now. Ha!

    I'm still laughing now.

    I have just had a consultation with my surgeon on Zoom. As the meeting closed he said there was just one more thing. That was to tell me that I wasn't allowed to do any housework for at least 3 months. I laughed and told him I'd tell my wife. He said he thought my wife was present with me as he saw her name on the screen (I was just using her zoom account). She wasn't here, but he tried his best for me!

    Don't have enough money to pay my water bill.
    Told Anglian Water I was just on disability benefits.

    They emailed back and said don't stress about it - I can have until February to sort it.:) That's a bit less stress.

    Must have felt a bit creepy if he wanted to have a look! Sorry, just me giggling.

    He didn't want to have a look. Not that he had any choice when I dropped my pants.:eek:

    Not really.
