This Friday Fragments thing seemed like quite a good idea today seeing as I was rapidly running out of day and hadn’t come up with anything of substance to post. Mrs4444 has been fragmenting on a weekly basis for quite some time, in fact this week is her 70th Friday Fragments post and here I am embarking on my very first. Here goes!
1. I spoke too soon on the matter of no dead fish. When I went to kiss Tom goodnight last night I discovered one of the rummy nose tetras had expired, apparently they are quite sensitive to poor water quality. So at 9pm I was doing chemical testing and an emergency water change.
2. We had a database crash at work today and all our updates for the last 2 days were lost. Fortunately there are back-ups of the data I used that can be retrieved from our secure server provider – at first I thought I would have no record at all of the long list of subscriptions I’d half processed during that time.
3. We have milk and bread delivered in the wee small hours on Monday and Thursday mornings. On Thursdays we also get orange juice and eggs which means the second loaf of bread doesn’t fit in the cooler bag we leave out. Instead it gets left on top and the resident possum usually helps itself to a slice or two – very neatly mind you and the rest of the loaf is fine. This week the bread was untouched. I hope Poss is ok. (Yeah, I could leave a second bag out but that’s be just mean.)
4. When I finished Canteen duty at the school this afternoon there were four absolutely adorable, fuzzy, roly poly five week old Border Collie puppies tumbling about on the lawn beside the school hall. One of the kids had her mum bring them in for news and she had decided to hang around at school rather than go home in the small amount of time left of the school day. I wanted to snorgle them, but contented myself with a few tummy rubs. Snorgles seemed a little risky as only one of the four had a home lined up to go to when ready to wean. I so don’t need a puppy. I should have taken a photo, shouldn’t I?
5. I need new summer shoes, the ones I have are beginning to disintegrate. I have no idea when I am going to manage to get to the shops to buy some.
6. I have in my wallet a whole bunch of cheques that I need to go to the bank and deposit. One of them is nearly two years old – it’s from the government so hopefully they’ll still honour it, but I won’t hold my breath!
And I’m done.
