tnaR - the that's not a rant thread for non-cycling issues
« on: September 17, 2013, 05:44:08 pm »
You know all those people who say Royal Mail are awful and posties are all useless? I've been expecting a packet for the past week and was starting to wonder where it had got to. Today the postie had left a card which says "Just back from hols and there is a recorded for you but it says Return. Do you know about it?" and he left his personal mobile number for me to ring him. I don't know why it hasn't been delivered, except postie on holiday = temporary cover = increased rate of errors, but how great is that service from the regular postie? You don't get that from TNT and the like. I rang him, he's delivering it tomorrow, and I think I will make him some biscuits as a thank you for going above and beyond.

Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

The buggers made me teach* today, even tho I iz lurgied.

And the kids were all lovely and listened and worked hard and, in the second class, looked on with expressions of enlightenment as I showed them _why_ the save icon in every bit of software they use looks like _that_ and then demonstrated by unfettling one into component parts why a floppy is called a floppy.

And then the lunchtime club wandered in to wait for their teacher and greeted me with "Kat!  We missed you!".

Bah.  Humbug.  ;)


*technically I'm actually "supporting teaching and learning" but that doesn't sound as sympathy-inducing.

David's birthday is on 1 July.
I asked him yesterday afternoon if he'd like anything.
He suggested an Apple Pencil so I ordered this.
We decided against any pricy delivery options and were given a delivery date of Wednesday 3 July initially, the Tuesday 2 July.
Received a dispatch email last night, followed by confirmatory text SMS.
Had three text messages from Royal Mail this morning, two stating delivery likely between 09.11 and 11.11.
Delivered at 10.11.
