I was going to head home as soon as I got up but it was such a lovely day I asked Phoebe if she would like to do breakfast.
She did so we went.
We headed out to Crusoe’s Cafe and found a table outside in the courtyard and enjoyed great company and delicious food in the sunshine.
Anat & Rami like to make sure their food is enjoyed and is just perfect for their clients.
They are great hosts – it is a pleasure to eat at their cafe
Phoebe ordered the French Toast.
I privately thought it was a boring option – but this is what she was presented with!
It had bacon, banana, grapes, pineapple, kiwifruit, berry coulis
It was amazing!
Of course I had to have the Rosti as they had created this breakfast because of a challenge from me.
It was really good.
Salad with breakfast – yes! That is one thing I can definitely handle
We finally dragged ourselves away and headed out to Richmond.
I had to go choose some carpet.
It was great to have Phoebe’s input and while we were there she found a fantastic bargain in vinyl flooring for their place too.
We then whizzed up to see Ross and discussed some business while Phoebe enjoyed the sunshine.
She was not feeling at all well so was happy to sit and rest.
From there we went to the mall, got groceries and then headed into the city.
I stopped off at Starbucks and got us both a venti caramel/Irish cream frappuccino.
I didn’t think Phoebe would manage to drink it all and was more than happy to finish it for her
But she did! And the caffeine kicked in with her codeine and by the time she had finished it she was feeling much happier.
We had to side track for fuel and then to Briscoes before leaving town.
Then I got a call from the Vodafone guy who John had put onto me.
I went around to see him and talk about what they could offer.
2Degrees had taken 7 weeks to process our business account and had only just come back to me an hour prior saying they would activate our phones the following day.
I was totally over their lack of service so only to happy to talk with Phil.
I took all the info and went back to Phoebe’s to have a think about it all.
Then at 4:30pm I zipped back to the city thinking I would have it all signed up in an hour.
We ended up getting all the cell phones linked, the home phones switched across and several other deals.
It was a good package he put together for me.
Plus he helped me to cancel out the 2Degrees contract.
I never left there until 6:45pm!
But spending 3 hours there to get it all sorted was way better than the 7 weeks of stress I had endured from 2Degrees.
The other major plus is that he speaks English.
Everyone I spoke to at 2Degrees was foreign and I could not understand them on the phone.
So it is a major plus not only being able to easily communicate but he is also in Nelson.
Vodafone won the day for me this time!!
I was so tired and hungry that I went around the corner and picked up some Chinese take aways, went back to Phoebe & Seb’s and ate it.
Then I dragged myself into the Terrano and left just after 8pm.
I was really tired but not sleepy tired so the drive home went fine.
I didn’t have any need to stop and sleep, just got myself home and unloaded the frozen foods and hit the pillow.
