If there is a wrong way to do things I usually find them although on this particular occasion things were not totally down to me. On Monday we had the day off as I had several things to do in-between doing some tidying up in the house and getting stuff down to the unit. I asked OH to do some tidying of some items I had not got to and so he duly obliged. What I had not appreciated was that he had bungled things into a couple of bin liners and had not sorted them out had just bunged everything in.
It came to be me going back to work on Tuesday morning, I was all organised had got everything together had a nice quiet breakfast. Came to put my shoes on - nowhere to be found. One of each different pair of shoes yes but not a complete pair. I had about five pairs that I could have worn but could I find them could I heck and to make matters worse I just did not have a clue what he had done with them. I did try and look but fast rang out of time before I was due at work. I did however find my sheepskin slippers which at first sight look like a pair of uggs minus the heel so I bunged them on and walked to work as there just was no reason for me to take time off work!
I subsequently went to lunch and whilst I was at lunch my work colleagues (full of giggles at me walking in to town in them as I had some stuff to deal with in town) innocently relayed this to my immediate Manager and when I returned a quiet word was had - however she could not really tell me off as she was in fits of giggles also. However I was told to hurry through reception just in case the clients saw me as slippers were not the professional image we like to portray! The girls were in fits of laughter over me but as I indicated I had made every effort to get into work and was not letting anything stop me!
To add insult to injury come 6:00pm OH came to fetch me and he was laughing by the time that I got to the car as he had clocked my slippers. Lets just say he got GBH of the earhole on the way home.
I eventually located the missing shoes in the bin bags not paired together - but at least I located them. I think when it comes to tidying my OH has a mental block - we women automatically sort things out as we go along unfortunately OH does not seem to subscribe to this.
Needless to say I gave everyone at work a good laugh and it has now gone down in the annals of our particular office as "Slippergate". I think it may be a while before I live this one down.
Has anything different or daft happened to you this week or is it just me that things seem to happen to!
