This has not been the best of days.
I woke up at the right time but felt and was slow all morning. It was cold outside, just below 0C (32F) and I knew I had to scrape the car windows since we also had fog during the night. Just as I was going out the zipper in my work trousers broke so I had to sit down and fix it before I could drive to work and I’m not good with a needle and thread 🙂 The car was a bit grumpy too, it always is when there’s little petrol in the tank so it really didn’t want to start in the cold even though the engine heater had been on for hours.
I forgot my dinner at home but we can order food from a restaurant nearby and then they drive it to us. Since I was rather late I thought it best to punch in so to speak (well I start a computer, write my employment number and press enter) before I would order the food. I was on my way back to the list to order when something caught my attention. They had already driven from the restaurant when I remembered I had no food so all I had today was to slices of hard bread 🙂
We have one petrol station in the village I work and it’s a container with one diesel tank and one petrol tank and they have to refill them every week, on Tuesdays. The problem is that the petrol tank was empty already yesterday morning but I thought it would be filled this afternoon, how wrong I was. So I had ton decide whether I should drive to the closest petrol station but drive mostly on the highway and perhaps be out of petrol on the way or drive to the closest town but in the wrong direction. I chose the latter.
Turns out I could have driven home and back to work again without filling up the car 🙂 My little Mazda doesn’t drink that much unless I drive very fast, but then again I’m not sure if they had filled up the tank at the petrol station tomorrow either. So I came home over thirty minutes later than usual just when the sun was going down behind the trees. But We saw the moose cow and her two calves and that sort of balanced the bad day I’ve had 🙂
It’s time for some food, finally, and a pot of tea. I’m not sure I’ll be writing anything on Thursday, it depends on how late I’ll come home.
Have a great day!
