We had to head over to a neighbouring town today.
Herself had some kind of female appointment and it wasn’t Skobieville so I was happy to oblige.
While she was being attended to, I took Penny for a walk around the neighbourhood. So far so good. It was fucking hot and sweaty but one can’t complain.
After Herself re-joined us, she suggested a cup of coffee. which was fine by me. I drove and we found a nice place with sunny seating in front. All the parking was taken up so I dropped Herself off and went in search of a place to stick the car. I found a grand spot but it was one hell of a stroll from the shop. Not being one to complain, I parked and walked Penny back to join Herself. At least it was downhill all the way.
Had a grand mug of coffee and went to light the old pipe. I’d left the fucking thing in the car. Bollox! Not being a slave to the thing I decided to go without. No problem.
Herself had done some shopping and there was a really heavy bag under the table. She suggested I bring the bag up to the car and then drive back as there were now some spaces. Seemed like a good idea.
I walked Penny back to the car [all uphill this time] lugging the shopping that cut into my hand. Got attacked by two dogs on the way. Got to the car to realise I had left my keys on the coffee-shop table. Bollox!
Walked back to the coffee-shop, still lugging the shopping. Got attacked by two dogs again.
Collected the keys and lugging the shopping [which by now weighed well over a ton] walked uphill back to the car. Got attacked by the two dogs once more.
Happily sat into the car and drove back down to the coffee-shop. All the spare spaces had been taken. They somehow knew I was coming? Found a spot one hell of a walk but in a different direction. At least there were no dogs to attack me.
Walked Penny [who by now was really dragging her feet] back to the coffee-shop. Uphill all the way. Was happy not to be attacked by any dogs and at least I had got rid of the shopping. That was now melting back in the car.
Got to the coffee-shop to find Herself had finished her mug and wanted to go home. Could I ever collect the car and pick her up?
Ever the gentleman, I walked Penny back to the car, collected it and then collected Herself.
I’m home and utterly fucked now.
Can’t walk another inch.
And I never got to enjoy my pipe with my mug of coffee after all that.
