I had to bring my sisters car home to her today. She was very good to give me a loan of it for more than one week. So I took my nephew and niece with me. I had to stop off at my mum’s house to pick up a gift that I left there.
My mum decided that she wanted to come along for the drive. I had arranged with my brother that he would follow us down and pick us up, so I hoped he would have the foresight to bring the ‘larger car’ with him, or somebody would have to walk home, and it wouldn’t be me.
I phoned my brother to tell him that we would have an extra body, and the call was a difficult one because my phone is knackered (end of life), and it sounds like I’m in a tunnel all the time. Anyway, he had taken the bigger car.
My sister has lots of phones. She offered me a Nokia flip phone to use. I thought ‘that’s decent of her’, but wondered if I could go for gold. ‘Are you using the silver Nokia?’ She wasn’t and she gave it to me to use for the time being.
I think it says in the bible that ‘he who does not ask does not get’. Its somewhere towards the back of it!
