Today we met up with our daughter for lunch at M&S, we have to pick her up as she isn't able to drive at the moment due to a back operation and is on crutches.
After dropping her home we wanted to find some suction / stick on hooks.
We tried B&Q, Screwfix, etc but no joy. Then we remembered the little hardware shop we pass on the way.
On finding a parking spot right outside the shop Tom pulled in to let me out before continuing to park.
I got out of the car, closed the door and promptly tripped and went down in a heap on the pavement.
Meanwhile Tom had looked out of the car window and not seen me and thought I was already in the shop.
Now, these days when I get down on the floor I need a chair, bed, worktop to grab to heave myself back up again as my legs seem to have lost their oomph!
A young boy with a bike asked me if I was okay and I said yes I was not hurt and he went on his way.
Meanwhile Tom is still merrily parking up, got the picture???
Well, after working things out I managed to get upright and went into the shop, found the hooks and came out and got back in the car.
"I just fell over" I said to Tom. "Oh, I saw you weren't there and thought you were in the shop".
All I can say is, it's a good job I didn't walk around the back of the car because he would most probably run me over. lol
Getting old is such fun.......
