Ocado internet shopping delivery in progress

Ocado internet shopping delivery in progress (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I came out of my bedroom to go downstairs just as E was leaving her room to do the same thing. She would be eating breakfast but I was determined to go for a walk instead. As usual I do eat a little something before I go out else eat breakfast and go out later. I was expecting the delivery of goods and as E was going out after lunch and wouldn’t be available to receive them I had to take my walk in the morning. It was already nine-thirty before I went through the front door so I couldn’t leave off taking my walk until later. I mention that I was determined to go for a walk because I didn’t really feel like going. I remember saying to E at the time that I was procrastinating and she laughed but I stuck to my decision and went. Tuesday was one of those days for me where I just wanted to relax but knowing I needed to keep up with the promises I had made to myself in maintaining  a more disciplined approach to exercise I made the effort. Yes, I did feel better afterward but I also felt a tad weary too. Anyway I know it was good for me. Thankfully the weather wasn’t bad which was a bonus. I had been waiting for the delivery of a new halyard rope for our flag pole for a few days and wondered why it hadn’t yet arrived. It was Tuesday afternoon, four o’clock when it arrived. I had placed the order online on Friday. It should have arrived on Monday morning being as it was such a small package. So much for Internet shopping. Yesterday, Monday (as I write this on Tuesday) I had purchased a replacement dishwasher over the Internet and it will be delivered tomorrow (Wednesday as I write) and could have been delivered today but for the supplier’s tight schedule. It appears they are very busy at this time. We could have paid a little extra to have it delivered sooner but there was no point in doing that. For a couple of weeks now I have been thinking about installing the circuit in the garage which will switch on the garage light during the hours of darkness whenever the garage door is opened. Somehow other things have gotten in the way and it is still not done. It’s one of those jobs which isn’t that urgent so it is taking a back seat in the scheme of things. Depending on what time the dishwasher arrives I shall be connecting it on Wednesday at some point unless it arrives late in the day in which case it will be left until the following day. This is the way things happen around here, some jobs get done immediately and others have to wait and they all have to wait if I am not in the mood to do them!
