I have no-one else to blame, only myself, for forgetting one vital fact when planning the delivery of a new wardrobe for today- the fact that Abby has a crucial hospital appointment with Speech and Language Therapy at 1pm .
The delivery firm booked the delivery as some time between 7.30 am and 1pm.
It takes at least an hour to get to the hospital by bus.
Not to mention the fact that Helen is at Holiday Bible Club each day this week from 09.30am to 12.30pm, and it takes nearly twenty minutes to walk down to the school to pick her up.
Also not forgetting the fact that DD1 is going out with her grandparents mid-morning.
I will have to pick Helen up early so we can get to the hospital.
Basically, if the delivery men arrive after 11.30 I won`t be there and they will have to re-schedule the delivery.
Why didn`t *I* just reschedule the delivery, I hear you ask ?
Well, you get a call from a regional call centre who don`t give you a contact number so I can`t get in touch with them :-)
The best option is for me to leave at 11.45, pick Helen up at 12, and then get a taxi to the hospital, as the next bus doesn`t leave till 12.20 and would make us very late for our appointment.
The taxi fare will be around £12. Gulp.
Serves me right for being so stupid as to book a delivery slot without checking the diary.....
I am praying very hard the wardrobe will arrive very soon.
It is now 09.55am.............
