Is it just me? Is it the onset of "old age"? Or does everyone have blips?
It is my birthday on Hallowe.en and my God daughter and her husband have arranged to come and see me one day during the week. Lovely thought I, clicking on to my Tesco account and choosing a delivery date and beginning to write out my order. So far, so good. I have only done this as my method of shopping more or less ever since they 'invented' on line shopping and delivery - and now, of course, it is the only way I can shop as I am not mobile any longer.
Well I got through to the end of the order, put in the details, chose a delivery date and clicked off only to discover when I came to write it on the calendar that it was set to arrive at the precise moment that friends T and S who luckily have more or less the same scheduled time as me will be calling to collect me for my flu jab (I had my covid booster last week).
So I go back to square one and read the small (very small) print telling me what to do if I want to change my order time (in no more than 200 letters). In the end after clicking in endless wrong places I cancelled the whole thing (whether by accident or design I shall never know).
Then I started again - first choosing a more convenient date and time, then rewriting out my order (I had done it the first time out of my head with no list so I had to do the same again), hoping I have got everything I need.
If something vital is missing from Mary Berry's Absolute Favourite Sausage and Potato Supper then we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
See you tomorrow.
