That went well - not

I put in a supermarket delivery for today as it's the closest I could get to the big day. Last week another supermarket released some Christmas Eve times so I grabbed one quickly, cancelled today. Except it seems that I didn't as it's about to be delivered. I did the normal rational thing and were into meltdown, this was not a pretty sight. My DH pointed out that it's not the end of the world, but he doesn't quite get it as there's things on the other order that I need. I have streamlined it but I don't anticipate going anywhere near a food shop till February. Best laid plans of mice and men........

You could just ring them up this has surely happened before (I did it once).

DH once booked Christmas slot, New Year Slot and, just in case, a mid festivity slot. He always puts 3 red wine boxes into the ‘basket’ to reach the £40 min. and then takes them out when he makes the order. You guessed it. He forgot about the middle slot....or so he said!

Nandalot - glad to hear that it's not just me!

Can’t you cancel the Xmas Eve delivery and go and pick up the bits you still need? I’m impressed with your planning, though - I still haven’t made my list! tchgrin
