Can anyone tell me why…..Jacob got up at 5pm , left the house at 5.40am and has just txted to say he might not be back this side of Christmas ??
Answer: to take his library books back( of course ).
On Monday he announced he had to get his books back to Newcastle Uni library. He has renewed them 19x this year ( might help if he read them ) and there would be hefty fines if they weren’t back by 16.45 today, when the library closes for 3 weeks . So I wopped my airmiles no. into the PC and got him a return flight for nought. This afternoon all was going swimmingly, I was sharing a carluccios starter thingey platter( can’t get enough of their caponata – I tried to make it once but it was more like ratatouille without the rat ) and a bottle of chilled Prosecco , when BA called me to say Jacob’s return flight had been cancelled. Because it was too cold to go outside ,the whole of Carluccios was then subjected to me telling Jacob to hotfoot it to the airport to see if he could get on an earlier flight.What a surprise, Jacob’s battery was low , so i thought if i shouted he’d hear me better. The last txt i got from him was from the airport where they’d given him train vouchers……………………..
