Anyone knowing me for a long time would shake their head at the title and wonder what I’ve done now?
I had an Uno when Lance and I got married all those years ago, and one day I came home with a bed on the roof of the car I wasn’t prepared to pay for delivery. LOL! I remember the policeman’s face as I drove past him that day… and thanked my lucky stars I didn’t get stopped. I’ve been known to come home with enormous trees hanging out the windows and tables and all sorts of household items.
It’s been the brunt of many a dinner joke, and Lance still reckons I need to get a bakkie instead of a car… especially because of the dogs now. You should see the mess they’ve made of my car!
Anyway, for some reason I haven’t done it in a while, and when I have, the kids haven’t been with me.
Today, however, was a different story. Lance was working so the kids came shopping with me… and I decided that I needed to replace the 2 occasional chairs in the lounge considering the beautiful banana leaf chairs that cost a fortune years ago are no longer beautiful due to the huskies deciding when they were puppies that it was a cool idea to unravel the banana leaf and chew on the legs and all the corners.
I’d spotted these button tub chairs at Mr Price Home a while ago… and today was the day they needed to be bought… and I wasn’t waiting for delivery. So the 2 sales guys gamely agreed with my thinking that the two chairs would fit in the car… which they only just did without the boxes. Except there wasn’t space for Connor’s chair… in fact there wasn’t space for much else. So Connor excitedly reckoned he would sit next to them, and “keep them safe”. He LOVED it… not that he’ll do it again in a hurry cos it meant no seat belts. Our house isn’t far from the shop… oh don’t give me crazy comments for this ok!! I know it’s dangerous…
Anyhoo, he loved it… and declared it “the best day ever”… my fearless son
Hehe, the car guard and the sales guys looked at me as if I was a little mad and the kids loved that I was a little mad for a change… and we’ve got 2 new red tub chairs in our lounge and it’s just amazing how cheery they make the place… now I just have to get a little more money to replace the couches… and the lounge will look as good as new.
And no… I’m not going to try and fit that in my car! I’m not THAT mad!
