Day 34 - Sunday 3rd February

“You don't stop playing because you are old; you grow old because you stop playing" – Unknown

Well what a disaster today has been. I always dial into work in the morning, to make sure that everything is ok in terms of sales polling to Head Office and that the garden centres are ok. I couldn’t dial into two of the garden centres and so got dressed and went into work expecting just to have to reboot routers. Three hours later I was still sat there trying to get to the bottom of the problem. It was the worst time for it to happen as the two centres that I couldn’t access are doing their year end stock takes today and so they need access to the Head Office systems. Aaargh!!!
Anyway all was resolved in the end, but not before it screwed my Sunday up. By the time I got home, hungry as I hadn’t had any breakfast and it was now lunchtime, I didn’t much feel like playing. We went off to do the weekly food shop – another job I hate! The good thing was that I managed to convince James that we should have a MacDonalds for lunch. Very bad I know but quick and easy and Zoë loves it.
The best thing was that, in the Happy Meal, they are giving away MB board games and this week’s one is Twister!!! We haven’t played it yet as Zoë is in bed asleep and James is out in the garden still trying the tree roots out. The last time I played Twister was about 5-6 years ago when I was on business trip with some colleagues and after a heavy night in the bar, we all went back to my room and played Twister until the very early hours!!! Ah those were the days!
We are going to a family get together this afternoon for James’s cousin’s 21st birthday so all the jobs that I normally do in the evening need to be done this afternoon – so there won’t be much time to play today at all!!!
