This did get me to the point of some rather ripe and rude remarks when He suggested I had put it somewhere. It was the full tirade of ‘If you kept the garage tidy...’.
Anyway I had an opticians appointment at 2.45pm, and He had a hearing test in town soon after.
I had insisted He book a hearing test after being driven demented by the ‘what’ every time I speak to Him.
Anyway, after leaving the opticians I decided to go to the Hardware shop and by a new deck broom, which I carried home over my shoulder. I left it just inside the front door while I let the dog out and made a cuppa. My old Yard broom just wasn’t getting the patio tiles clean enough.
In the meantime my Husband arrived home and when He found me he asked me ‘Diid you have a nice ride home?
Mystified I said I walked back as agreed.
’Oh, I thought you might have enjoyed taking your new broomstick for a spin, fancy coming out for a drive in my nice new car?
I have to admit I didn’t have a significantly good retort. Anyway the hearing test was passed with flying colours, except for a blurring of low range noise.
So triumphantly I congratulated Him on having good hearing. I said he will just have to work on his listening skills.
I do have a low voice for a female. Which is obviously outside His hearing range unless it it getting slightly higher in pitch with irritation of not being either heard or listened to.
Now that I have got over the annoyance of not finding the boot guard, and finding he had turned up to the garage without the car documents I am cackling away at the little reposte of the broomstick.
He gets a nice shiny shiny new red PHEV with lots of new buttons, a very stylish redesign of the interior and a nice clean clutter free environment at the moment. I get a lovely new broomstick to while away pleasant hours cleaning the garden.
He is just telling me about the new proximity alarms, and flashing in the wing mirrors when cars are coming up from behind. I was attentively nodding and listening, when he looked at me and said,
‘I suppose you think I need all the help I can get’. I just smiled.
He says you can also switch the view on the reversing mirror to the left side wing mirror to see how close you are to things.
I said ‘They must have been really thinking of you when they designed those features’.
As an afterthought, I really don’t have a problem reversing using the wing mirrors. I can also turn my head in a very witch like manner to look out of the rear window if needed...
The car protector pack is a must. The big tray in the boot a super idea, as we always have the dog cage in the back. The strip for the boot inspired, as the dog has scuffed her claws a little on the paintwork. The door protectors ideal. Nice mats. Also a very nice car cleaning kit in a little suitcase.
Its a beautiful car though. Ideal for Jersey and our driving in France. It’s all short journeys in Jersey. It’s even quieter. And a lovely shade of Orient Red. Very cheerful. Well done Mitsubishi... when can we get a converter to use the battery when there’s a power cut? Next year?
I am not going to live down this £4.50 deck broom. My Husband started sniggering and spluttering over dinner, and managed to get out... ‘What’s your brooms top speed then’?
It’s not just the Brush that has a bristling nature.
Don’t rub it up the wrong way...
