Yesterday my painting was interrupted by the carpet fitters who were late arriving and today my painting was interrupted by the blind man.
The blind man isn't actually blind, he's the man who came to fit the blinds in the bedroom. I think it's pretty cool to see his vehicle livery which reads 'The Blind Man'. He sometimes drives with dark glasses and really looks the part. His name is Robert and we've known him for over 15 years. The fitting is a free service when we ordered the blinds but the problem was that he wasn't able to fit them. The man who came to measure (Bev's boss) measured them incorrectly. This means they will all have to be re-cut.
Isn't it typical that the blind man was able to see perfectly and the man who came to measure wasn't. The good thing is that Bev can get them done very quickly as it's her job. She also gets to tell her boss off for being incompetent which is almost worth the inconvenience of having no cover at the windows now that we've moved back in.
Yesterday we drove straight to Nottingham and didn't get back until 10:45 after a stop for a chat with David & Eileen...hence no blog entry.
Watched Slumdog Millionnaire the other night..brilliant! I loved it. A bit of an eye-opener but a top-class film. I didn't recognise a single actor as the credits rolled, but seeing as they were all indians it isn't surprising. I would recommend watching it if you haven't already done so. Top film! Did I mention that it was a good film? Go see it and you can tell me how it started as we missed the first five minutes.
We've just had a freezing walk to Homebase to buy a tin of paint and will now be settling down for a home based date night...film and popcorn.
I love the week-end.
