.....of my communication with Customer Services Department at HOOVER (Read here and here if you haven't been following the plot), I decided not to reply to the email and just let the engineer come on Thursday. However, a letter has been received from the hospital making an appointment for Joe that very day. Well, we know our priorities. Joe comes first, the engineer last. I replied to Hoover accordingly, reminding CSD that I had opted for Tuesday. Anyway, I have an important meeting to attend on Thursday afternoon so CSD can put that in their pipes and smoke it, though I didn't actually tell them that.
To take my mind of the whole thing I made some effort to cheer things up!
Next step is to interweave Christmas cards in the garlands.
I thought putting decorations around the place might get me in the mood for Christmas.
