An expensive morning
This morning we went to the Door Warehouse to order the back door and bedroom door that we need for the house. We managed to get there with only one wrong turn this time. My husband groaned as he pulled out his credit card to pay for them. Then it was off to the garden centre to buy three bags of compost (three because they were on offer three for the price of two), one plant pot and one packet of seeds. Again the poor credit card took a hammering although only a small hammering this time. Next it was off to the carpet shop from which we were to buy a new carpet for our living room. It was our lucky day. The carpet that we wanted had been discontinued and the shop had in stock about a metre more than we needed. This time it was my credit card which took a hammering as the refund from Carpetright, if we ever get it, will go back onto my card as I paid for it in the first place. By now it was afternoon.
