This is what we needed to have after a very busy day in the Post Office.
A G&T did the trick.
We had plenty of letters and parcels for the Postmen and the Parcelforce van driver to collect from us today.
It still amazes me how some customers come into the shop with piles of presents then need help to decide the best method to package them up for posting.
They then buy the box or the bag or brown paper and tape then proceed to pack them up before sorting out the postage.
Others come in with piles of cards and wait until they get to the counter before they decide to count how many they have before asking for the stamps.
After our escapade with the gas cylinder on Saturday you will not believe what happened last night.
In the evening, with our friends, we went to the Bridge in Dulverton for a meal.
We bought some drinks then found a table before we perused the menu.
After about ten minutes there was a distinct smell of gas emanating from the kitchen.
The barmaid emerged from the kitchen to say they were having a problem with the gas and were trying to sort it out.
After a while, the barmaid emerged again to say the problem had not been sorted and she let us know which items on the menu were not available.
So it was pies all round with chips and vegetables.
Thank goodness the beer pumps were not gas operated.
A little Christmas story to finish with…….
A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the mall was packed.
Walking through the mall the surprised wife looked up and noticed her husband was nowhere around and she was very upset because they had a lot to do.
She used her mobile to call her husband because she was so upset, to ask him where he was.
The husband in a calm voice said, ‘Honey remember the jewellery store we went into 5 years ago where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day’.
His wife said crying, ‘Yes, yes, I remember that jewellery store’.
He said, ‘Well I’m in the bar next to it’.
