Well finally I’m writing from my tent up in the hills. P is snuggled into her fleece suit lying on her down gilet and wrapped in my down smock. How come she always ends up with my down smock?
I’m going to tell u an impossible story now. I can’t believe it, anyway.
some of u may remember that I decided to order a paired Of expensive down trousers. The makers very kindly agreed to make them in time 4 my Lakes trip, which was v. Much appreciated. Unfortunately, when I collected them from the PO in Ambleside they’d accidentally sent me a size large rather than the medium I ordered.
I rang. It’s not easy to get through on the phone sometimes, but finally they rang me back. They apologised and arranged to send a M to my BB yesterday. The package arrived just as I was going out to dinner–I’d thought it mightn’t be coming as it was then 6pm–but I was delighted to get them.
After dinner I opened the package and the label said M. I was relieved. When I tried them on they seemed a bit big but I was dashing to bed by then, so this morning I packed them up and set off.
30 mins ago I unpacked them and put them on. This timed they really did seem big but I realised I had them on back to front and thought maybe it wa jus the bum That was large. As I wriggled out of them‚ though, the internal label caught my eye, and yes: you’ve guessed it. They’ve sent me another Large.
it’s hard 4 me to believe they could do this twice, accidentally. I’ll have to wear them as it’s cold and I brought my lighter sleeping bag because I knew I’d have the trousers. Naturally it’s Friday now, so I won’t be able to contact them until Monday. Unbelievable…
And then I’ll prolly listen to audiobook, as I had no room 4 a real one. Oh, and I need to check map re tomorrow.
I hope you’RE ALL having fun!
other than that it’s been a good day. I was relieved to learn that I can still carry a 15kg+ pack: I think the last time I carried so muc weight was prolly on the Pennine Way. It wasn’t too bad, though.
P got very wet, and shivered for some time after I’d settled her in the tent. I made her kibble up with warm water, though, and fed it to her by hand after she’d lapped up the juice‚ and that semed to make her feel better 🙂
I‛m going to make soup soon and eat a sandwich (coleslaw in white roll–yum!)
