And not in a good way! I actually can't believe what I've just heard, and even though I have oodles of work to get through, I have to take a minute to catch my breath and tell someone what my ears can't believe. David's not answering his phone at work, so you're going to be my sound board I'm afraid.
I have a problem with the disk drive on my laptop. cut a long story short, not working. I rang Domestic and General to get it fixed (I have a policy with them) and they directed me to a repair company. I've just rang them and they said that would be 4-5 WEEKS before I get my laptop back, most of that being bureaucracy and admin from what I can work out. How ridiculous! I just can't believe it. I'm paying £100 per year for the cover of my laptop (and please don't tell me I've been ripped off on that count too, 'cos I just couldn't handle it at the moment), only to be told that I'm to be without the one thing that I need everyday, and when I don't have it I feel like I've lost a child.
So, the claim will have to wait a couple of weeks because I have some work to do which I desperately need my laptop for, and then I'm going to have to wave it goodbye, tearfully at the door whilst it goes on its holiday.
Feel better for that. Still gobsmacked though!
Love, Clare x
