FRIDAY FRUSTRATION

All I can say is I'm sure glad I have Knit'n'Cafe on Fridays!

Yesterday was 'one of those days' ...

(VIA Rail photo taken last year near Duncan, BC)

It started at 7:30 a.m. when Jason and I dropped Joshua off at the train station to go back home to Qualicum -- I always feel a little sad saying goodbye to him, even though we see him every few weeks, pretty much.

Then I returned home to find that I had no internet service -- aarrggghh. Through a stupid mistake I made last week, I'd been cut off, for heaven's sake! I accepted that it was my mistake (I'd forgotten to report a late payment I'd made) but it still took me two hours on the phone to Telus (half of which is spent talking to robotic pre-recorded 'voice operators --now THERE'S a lesson in frustration alone), getting three different stories from three different employees when I did finally get through to a live human being, having to explain and re-explain what happened, trotting out confirmation numbers and phone ID numbers and blah blah blah .... until finally my service was restored some time in the afternoon. SO frustrating...

I did manage to get down Clover Point to BREATHE, knit a few rows on the market bag, and see this freighter emerging from the fog ...

... but when I took a sip of my coffee, it turned out that I hadn't put the lid on properly, and I spilled coffee all over my sweater.

Like I said, good thing I had Knit'n'Cafe -- knitting with friends in a nice warm coffee shop is just 'what the doctor ordered.'

I'm about half done the market bag, and have another pair of Noro socks on the needles. This morning I have a new Intermediate Knitting class starting at the store, so I'm looking forward to that -- I'm sure today will go MUCH better!
