Sorry Wrong Number


It's been a quiet day.
Got up at 8 ish and walked the dogs, then we all went back to bed until 11...
Avocado on sourbread toast for breakfast
Then the beach with Dorothy and Mary.
Winnie is now too old for a sand walk
I didn't speak to anyone until 6 pm when I rang my friend Nigel for a natter
The village was dark and cold just now after Mary and I ventured out with a thank you letter to post
The letter was addressed to the manager of the building society who employed the wonderfully professional ( and heavily made up ) Leanne . The woman who after much pouting and computer effort sorted out my mortgage for me.
Her wonderful false eyelashes, which battered away like two pairs of butterfly wings always reminded me of Betty Boop's
She went beyond the usual hoops such works go to, in order for me to secure the cottage

I was reminded to send the thank you letter of praise after Friday morning's coffee and text break at work. Worrying that Dorothy was a bit loose in the bowel department I texted Paul , the sexy bearded dog walker with the following message
" Can you let me know if Dorothy has the shits today? She's already left a bloody skid mark on the bedsheets!" 
Only I didn't send the message to the " Hound"  hotel !!!
Oh nooooo..........
I sent it to Lianne at the Halifax  building society

Fair doos
Lianne was plucky enough to text me right back
" I will ask around the office for you but I don't think she will own up to anything as embarrassing!"

  9. Liane sounds like a good and gracious woman.
    I once sent a text to one of my daughters that was meant for her father. I think I owe her some therapy for that now.

    Still chuckling now as I settle down with my mutt (on the bed of course) to sleep. Hope Dorothy is OK! Don't know about dogs embarrassing us - sometimes I think we embarass them without meaning to. Thank you for all your blogs- said it before and I will say it again - you ought to write a book.

  16. I hope you got the correct address on the envelope you posted. It is good to give out praise - in fact it is much better than giving out criticism or complaints.

  30. I like Lianne's style...I remember back in the days of dial phones and party lines, my mother got 3 or 4 wrong numbers one morning from a guy answering a want ad about barrels for sale. She was getting rather annoyed with the old guy. After about an hour's peace, the phone rang again, and it was the same guy, this time saying "Lady, thought you might like to know I found them barrels!
