"Hope you're not too far away - the outside waste pipe has frozen and there's s**te spewing back up the toilet all over my bathroom"
An hour later we were in the close, sniffing as we went up the stairs. Couldn't detect any whiffs and luckily, as we bravely opened our front door and peered into the bathroom, all was well. We had been saved! A few hours of pouring boiling water over the pipe and a gradual thaw outside seemed to resolve the problem. Feel bad for the girl downstairs, but overall, just relieved!
Yesterday we ventured out east to visit the in-laws and niece and nephew. As we attempted to board a train for Linlithgow, an announcement came over the tannoy to tell us to "halt!" - the train was cancelled... and there wouldn't be another one for 30 minutes.... Hmmm... what does one do with oneself with a spare half hour to waste in the city centre? You guessed it - I left a rather poorly Mr G sitting in Queen Street station with all the bags of presents while I trotted off to Urban Outfitters. Twenty minutes later and I was back with grin on my face, a glow on my cheeks and a big bag in my hand. I had managed to scoop up the number one cardigan on my list - score!
Today was my first official day at the sales and this is what I wore. I'll reveal all my bargains and AMAZING Christmas pressies over the next few days.
