Who says men can't multi-task?
Er, well me for one.
En route to London hospital appointment - early train as usual I dropped him at the station entrance, went to park car and walked back to join him. He was at the ATM getting some money and I commented that we could probably get an earlier train than we had originally planned and given it was starting to snow, maybe the sooner we were on our way the better.
He missed hearing the machine tell him to take his card out - so result? Card swallowed up, no cash and his other (credit as opposed to debit) card blocked as we found out later on our way home.
Of course this was entirely my fault as I couldn't expect him to do two things at once.
I haud my wheesht as we say in Scotland. ("Kept quiet"for Sassenachs)
Was I really asking too much?
Grandparents - are you guilty of this?
Thrifty parents - a lifestyle
Menopause - your essentials
