Phew! What a day!
We went to Smiths last night. When we were half way there we realised we had not brought the map with us!! Luckily it was easy to find. John had a dressed crab to start with and I had avocado, crab and prawn salad. They were big portions and it really would have been enough for me! For the main course, John had Surf and Turf and I had jumbo prawns in a chilli dressing. It was all delicious and we shall certainly go again.
I went shopping at the crack of dawn today thinking it would not be busy. Was I wrong? The supermarket was heaving and the queues to check out were so long that they stretched back into where people were trying to get at things to put in their trollies I was longer standing waiting to pay than I was getting the groceries.
I have to pay the balance of our holiday on 28th of this month and so decided I would have to tell John!! At lunchtime he was talking about booking some fishing in Scotland and so I took the bull by the horns and told him that I had put a deposit on the trip to Jamaica and either had to cancel or pay the balance. He was OK about it and said we can go………so, I am pleased!
Then, this afternoon, I put my camera memory card in my iMac’s CD drive. There was already a CD in the drive! The memory card vanished. I tried to eject the CD – no go. I told John who was not best pleased as I have done this before and it is very hard to get the card out, let alone with a CD in the drive too. He vanished into his work shop and made some sort of hooky thing and, after a lot of trial and error, was able to hook the memory card out. We then turned the iMac back on and I was able to eject the CD. However, I think it has damaged the drive as I can no longer play CDs. It is not the end of the world as I have a CD drive on my MacBook.
Let’s hope this is the end of today’s drama! Back tomorrow
