The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

A nail is worse than my splinter!

We have a leaky gutter outside our bedroom window. Landlords been called but with all this glorious rain we've had, you can literally hear it dropping. I'm a light sleeper so my days when I can have a lay in till 7 or so I'm woken by this drippy gutter.

I'm cooking a roast for dinner, and since I don't yet have a slow cooker, I'm using a big pot. Unfortunately the roast is a bit more snug than I expected. So when I went to put it in, it dropped and splashed hot oil all over my hands. Luckily it's not a bad burn, it just stings a lot still.

A while later my husband asks me to look something up on the computer and I'm wincing as I type. He asked, "what's wrong?" and I said I'd burned myself, didn't he notice I was all red? "Well how was I supposed to know?" is his reaction, not the normal person reaction of oh no, are you ok? About 5 minutes later he did come ask if I was ok, but by then I was a bit annoyed.

They sometimes just don't get it, do they?

Sudocrem is really good for minor burns (and a multitude of other things).I find it really helps with the pain. You can get it in the supermarkets and chemists.

Maybe you could send him out to get some as his penance!  ;)

We actually had some already, so I made him go fetch it from the bathroom for me.  ;D The problem is now it's all over my fingers and therefore my laptop! He's since gone into town to buy a slow cooker. Men! hahahaha

My husband does that kind of stuff too lol he just thinks I'm giving him an attitude or something when I point out why I'm doing something a certain why so he just automatically goes on the defense. It doesn't happen all the time but it DOES irritate the $h!t out of me when he does!

At least you now have a slow cooker!

When you get a new phone, but want to keep your old number, and you've got to wait what seems forever (over a bank holiday weekend) for the PAC code to take effect...  [smiley=bigcry.gif] [smiley=dead.gif]

Maybe tomorrow.

We just moved and have had to buy a lot of stuff at Wilko for the new place.  One big shop over the weekend included three pillows (in bags that had handles--fine) and a BUNCH of other stuff, like a bin for the bathroom and similar.  We had one reusable bag but it was really too much stuff for it so I asked for another bag.  The cashier refused to give it to me!!  Like are you kidding me? When I specifically ask for a bag and am spending a buttload of money you really can't scan a bag in for 5p and add that to my total?

Wait...you weren't even expecting to get it for free??? You literally were just wanting to pay for another bag?! and they wouldn't let you?! lol

YES!  That's insane, right??  Like I wanted to pay my 5p extra for another bag so I don't have to carry a bunch of small appliances in one bag, and she wouldn't let me.  I've noticed the cashiers there are super grumpy anyway but come on.

Does that McDonald's ad for the Tennessee stack kind of annoy anyone else?  You know, the ones where the more they talk about it the more super 'American' things they wear?

Like it's sooooo stupid to be annoyed but it's on a lot.  :P

Thankfully I don't watch any live TV and I don't watch too many things via the "catch-up" apps so i don't have to see too many adverts (including this one). I feel like this one would realllly irritate me. lol
