Well, I managed to get a decent amount of sleep last night (meaning Thursday night). I went to bed around midnight, and it wasn't all that long before I fell asleep. Woke up about 2:00 am and thought to myself, "Oh no, don't say that's going to be it for me for the night again!" But it wasn't. I was only up for an hour (at most) then back asleep again. Woke up a little after 8:00 am. So, that was good. Plus, I got a good two or three hour nap after I got home from town today.
I met my Nan in town today. We had a nice, slow walk around some of the shops and the market, had some food (both of us had bacon, egg and chips/fries), then went and had a look around a couple more shops before going home. I got a few Christmas presents for people, plus a bigger box with a lid on for my lego (the little tub I have was getting too full). The box is purple, and only cost £1.99. So, I got two. Just in case I decide I need it. Besides, it's purple, it's q tidy size, and it was only £1.99! LOL! I also got a book and an audio book that I liked the sounds of and Nan insisted I got myself. I can't remember what they're called at the moment, but the book only cost 30p in a charity shop/good will store that we were looking in to get some cheap teddies for Kero and Jayde for Christmas (found some by the way) and the audio book was £3 in the market.
We had a pretty good day. Though, I was disgusted with a couple of people in the one store.
One person was trying to get at something that I was in the way of, and instead of nicely asking me to move, she started trying to pull it off the shelf (whacking me on the knee with it as she made the attempts) and when she failed to get it to move, she sharply said, "Do you mind? MOVE!" I moved, but it was more to stop from being hit with the corner of the plastic box she was trying to get a better look at than because of her order.
The other person was a woman working at the check-out of that same store. Nan and I had both brought things, and while I was putting mine up to pay, I told Nan to let mine go through before taking her stuff out of the trolley. We were right beside the person, so there is no way she couldn't have heard us (the shop was quite quiet) but, after my stuff had gone through, she asked me, "Is that all?" I told her that it was, and she asked if I was sure (while looking at the trolley). I told her that the stuff in the trolley was my Nan's, so if she could ring up my bill so I could pay, then we could pay for those items too, and she actually looked at my Nan and said, "Is it really?" Like she didn't believe me. My Nan told her that it was her stuff and to ring up my bill so I could pay, and she did. But, I was disgusted at how she practically accused me of stealing. Had she apologised upon realising her mistake, I wouldn't have minded, because she has a right to check, but she didn't. She just told me how much my stuff cost, took my money, practically threw my change at me, and turned her attention to making sure Nan was removing everything from the trolley. If it wasn't for the fact I wanted the items so much (that was where I got my purple boxes) I'd have told her to give me my money back and keep the damn stuff!
As we were about to go up to get the bus home, I stopped at an ATM machine to get a bit of money out so I had a bit of cash for if I needed something over the weekend. Luckily, we stopped at my own bank, because when I put the card in the machine, it kept saying "checking card" then threw my card back at me. So, I went inside, and the woman behind the counter told me she thinks the card is too damaged to work any more. I told her I wasn't surprised, because it's been accidentally put through the washing machine recently. It has worked since that happened, but we both think it was a delayed reaction to that. Anyway, she gave me my cash over the counter and is ordering me a new card. She's advised that, in the meantime, I get any cash I want out of my bank over the counter, since the card probably wont work, and after a couple of tries will only be swallowed up by the machine. Good thing my bank is in Ammanford, not Swansea. It's also a good thing that I haven't changed addresses since being with this bank, which means I know my card will come to the right address. LOL!
Having to go into the bank meant that we ended up missing the one bus home by a few minutes. I wanted the 145 because it stops closer to my place and I had those boxes (which are light, but awkward to carry) but there were two other buses Nan could have caught that we were in time for. She decided she wanted to see me on to my bus before getting one home herself though. Unfortunately, because the 145 goes along the route of the school buses, there isn't one just before 3:00 pm, because the two buses would get in the way of each other on the narrower roads. And, guess what? It was the one that comes just before 2:00 pm that we missed. The next one after that is at 4:00 pm. Normally I'd have just caught one of the other buses, but I didn't think the bag that the boxes were in would hold enough to carry it on the longer walk, and neither of us were in a hurry to leave, so we went into the Co Op and got a few bits, then waited for the 4:00 pm bus. As it turned out, I was right about the bag. It broke a few feet away from my gate. Had I gone on one of the other buses, I wouldn't have even been half way between the bus stop and home with the amount of time the bag lasted.
Anyway, that's about it for today.
