Sometimes you need to make sure you’re really clear with your instructions.
When I told the postman that he could always leave parcels behind the white board I have on my front door step I never really imagined I’d come home to this:
I assumed he realised I meant ‘if they fit’. Clearly not. But never mind, nobody snaffled them thankfully!
And Wednesday night I made a cake for the birthday of some colleagues at work. This in itself was quite impressive as my baking is rather hit and miss, to put it mildly. After an incident with the icing sugar and electric mixer I actually had to wash the contents of the fruit bowl and hoover myself down. However, I was able to send this mail to my back up (in case it all went so wrong that she had to whip something up instead)
Then I decorated the cake. When I got to work the next morning I realised the importance of punctuation. Rather than saying ‘Love, Us’ it had turned into rather a bossy instruction to ‘LOVE US’. Still, it was Valentine’s Day, so I guess it was almost ok. :o)
