We all have the odd off day but mine has lasted for days. Before I get the barrage of dumb blonde jokes ;-) let me say that I am not known for being ditsy in fact quite the opposite, however I haven't been well at all this weekend and I got progressively worse since I had to leave my date Friday night in the middle of a beautiful Michelin meal. Sacre bleu! A travesty!
My weekend got progressively worse from that initial disaster, even though I was feeling a little better when I got up Saturday I managed to spill Night Nurse on all my bedding, my throw, duvet, duvet cover and the cover to my water bed, so I had to take it all the the dry cleaners Saturday morning, in the process I lost my mobile phone and went to Cambridge without it.
Things come in three's ... right? So after those 3 disasters I was sure I'd have had my quota for a long time, but it seems not....
Thankfully I took my phone numbers with me, and on the way back I found my phone where I thought my keys were (in the zip compartment of my wash bag!!!???) but couldn't find my keys (house and car) and teary eyed made a number of calls at Nottingham train station to try and find a neighbour in. None were! I didn't fancy calling the bell of any random flats in the distressed state I was in. I just wanted to get in to bed as I was ill but your own bed doesn't quite have the same appeal when you're in a sleeping bag!
Fortunately I found a friend in went to his house. I called to reactivate my phone whilst he kindly called a locksmith, and he waited with me until I found a neighbour that could let us and the locksmith in. One and a half hours later and £225 I had access to my flat and new keys.
My neighbour had had one of my spare keys for years and I took it back from her the other week when I had joiners in, and on my list of 'things to do' was to drop my spare key back to her!
My friend took me out to get a Macdonalds as I had no food in (I nearly forgot my fob for the apartments. I had a spare in my flat so I almost got locked out again!) and had I been well enough I had planned to go out for lunch. The Macdonalds Happy Meal box wasn't secured properly and most of my chips ended up on the pavement!
Then later that evening I misplaced the fob, my brain was just not working at all, and I had to trouble my neighbours again to borrow one.
I went to bed feeling really unwell, but had to go to the solicitors Monday so I couldn't lie in. With no spare car keys I spent over £50 on taxis to and from the solicitors and whist the cab waited for me to collect my bedding and get some food in. I felt absolutely horrendous! I simply don't have time to be ill this week, I've so much to organize before I go away Thursday on my photo shoot. It's sods law isn't it!
I'm feeling a little better today thankfully :)
My phone has a delay on being cancelled and I'm waiting for it to be properly reactivated, so please bear with me if you're trying to reach me. At the moment I can't call out but my answer machine is on.
My keys have arrived this morning from Cambridge so thank goodness I didn't have to pay another £200 for someone to break into my car! Now that really has booted me up the arse to get a spare car key cut and a few more house keys!
