After such an awful week last week, I had something today that made me laugh out loud, thanks to the lovely Debbie who comes to my group, but is more a friend .
I have to give you a bit of background first; I entered a competition on the radio and if you win they ring you up, any time of the day, so you ought to listen to hear if they are going to be ringing you, well this afternoon I was sewing with my radio on of course and the announcer said, I am just about to ring someone and make them £2,000 better off….. then my phone rang..
Hello says I all of a dither, Hello Jan says Debbie, well from that moment I wasnt over sure of what she was saying as I was half listening to her and the other half to the radio and wondering how can I finish this call without seeming rude before the piece of music ends. ha ha well we had a reasonable conversation and said bye see you in May.
Then, the announcer said I am just about to ring a lady in North…that was all I heard folks, my heart was about to give up on me for sure, but it was Northumberland, not Northampton. Not to worry, I wish the lady who won a lovely time in her flight in a Spitfire which is what she wanted the money for. I have until Friday evening to be pulled out of the hat as it were. The phone is by my side all day. ha ha ha
I rang Debbie back and told her why I seemed so vacant on the phone and we had a good laugh about it, she has wished me luck, thanks Debs, see you soon.
I am still laughing about it folks, the timing was just sooooo perfect.
For those of you who read my previous post and wondered what the 2,208 was about… it is the approximate number of pebbles sewn on the quilt I am entering in the FoQ this year. Just in case you were wondering…….
