It has been a very strange day. There have been times of absolute delight, such as being reblogged by Opinionated Man 😀
There was a weird…coincidence. Something that only last night I was saying hadn’t happened for a good long while, and so was unlikely to happen again – happened earlier today. How do things like that come to pass? Really. Is my house bugged or something?
And there was a long period of immense frustration and disappointment as I hunted for something online and found it is absolutely NOT available in the UK. Come on!!! Surely we aren’t as behind as all that!?!? *grumpy face*
I even telephoned the UK branch of the company that sells it in the USA, and no, they don’t stock it here, don’t see that they ever will, and no, they can’t get one for me. But you are the same company?!?!? FFS!!! *bad tempered face*
I could buy this item that costs a mere $3.99 from Amazon.com, but it would cost me £37 in postage. FFS!! Thirty seven quid??? For something that is only made of light plastic, about 3 inches long and only costs about 3 quid ???? That is just ridiculous!! *pissed off face*
I did find something that might do the same job, but even that was hard to track down, with Amazon.co.uk having only 1 left. Well, I grabbed it!! And if it doesn’t do the same job, then I only lost £3, and my Eldest might be able to use it for her artwork.
And due to waking up at 3am this morning and not getting back to sleep until almost 7 am, then awake again at 11am, I am very sore, aches are becoming hurts, and I am ridiculously wobbly on my feet. *mutter, mutter, grumble, hmph*
There is always tomorrow, I suppose : /
