As always on the way home, I throw my newspapers in the recycling bin. This time I realise too late that I had also tipped in an important letter.
Unfortunately the bin had just been emptied.
I could see my papers and that letter laying right at the bottom. I am just over 5 feet. The bin comes up to my chest.
I think I can reach it.
I stand on tippy toes. One hand holds the bin cover open, the other tries to reach down. The bin has wheels. It is also about 2 feet wide and very, very, very heavy
Weighed down by the volume of my body, it tips over at an angle.
I nearly fall in head first. Luckily no-one was around to hear such blasphemy!
In the end I use my umbrella. Luckily no-one was around to hear such blasphemy!
When I tell Charlie, he is completely unimpressed.
Thank you so much! I know most of my bloggie friends already have this award and if you don't, then please may I nominate you? You all bring me sunshine on rainy wet days like today so you all deserve this and more! Yay!
Oh and calling all TWILIGHT FANS!!! A date in your diary. Stephanie Meyer is going to publish her upcoming novella The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner online for free between 7 June - 5 July 2010 online. Which is very nice of her to do so and even nicer of her to pledge a donation for any hardback copies sold to the American Red Cross.
Have a lovely Wednesday everyone!
