It’s only Monday ……….
…….. and l am already stressed up to my eyeballs!
My Sister had one task, one task! To go and pick up the cat Jacqui – yesterday!
I got a panicked call 90 minutes ago!
“Rory did you double lock the house?”
“Of course l bloody did, l would be a fool if l didn’t, it’s an empty property! Why?”
“I am here for the cat, and l only have one key and not two.”
It’s at this point that my stress levels next to my anger hit the roof. It’s bloody Monday, and only now she is going for the cat? And what, she doesn’t lock the house?
“Do you not double lock the house??” I ventured.
“Well, since the locks were changed l have only been using the single lock, l sort of forgot to tell you. I am under a lot of stress, l have been medically signed off!”
I can’t write what followed next, there is only a certain amount of profanity that l will use in my blog, but use your imagination and you’ll get the jist. I am a 100 miles away from that house and my so called responsible Sister and prodigal daughter of my late Father, not only doesn’t know how to lock a house up, but is a day late for the poor cat, and now has the absolute gall to throw ‘medical stress in my face! So l had to fast walk down to the post office and send off first class recorded delivery my top lock key which will arrive Wednesday. Why she couldn’t have told me any of this on bloody Saturday, then l would have left keys in the key safe, but oh no, that’s just too responsible isn’t it?
Apparently when my Father was ill, they only used the bottom lock with the property!
Luckily l put down a good quantity of water and food to last a few days, but that is so not the point, I am ‘very’ angry at this present time and stressed at all the other implications afoot here, and it’s only bloody Monday!
