So I decided to start blogging as a few people have told me to including my husband. I always used to love writing stories as a child so who knows I may even write a book one day!
The moment that urged me to write my first post was this..
A delightful note from a Hermes delivery driver, where do I start? I do everything online including my food shops. I’m not lazy, in fact quite the opposite! I am a self employed mum of a toddler, when I’m not working I’m at toddler playgroups singing Nursery rhymes and drinking endless cups of tea! I do not have time to go to the shops plus my daughter hates it! I don’t want to be THAT mum in Tescos where my daughter is tantruming because I won’t let her loose in the frozen isle and I don’t mean Disney!
So mr Hermes driver what business of yours is it as to why I’m never home and actually FYI as I write this I am sat in the comfort of my living room! Did you know Mr Hermes that without people like me ordering things online, you would not have a job!
Online shopping is what people do these days who wants to go sweating through a busy shop and now with the added fear of being stabbed or mugged (this happened in Bromley recently).
My neighbours are friendly, they will take my parcels and I take theirs so I do not understand what the issue was for you to write this note, how did you taking my box of nappies to the woman next door really bother you? Yes that’s right Nappies! Ok maybe I could get them in a shop but I like to order from Amazon as if I buy in bulk it’s cheaper and lasts longer and I can’t carry a box of nappies on my buggy if I go into town! Maybe Mr Hermex Driver assumes that because it was nappies I must be the sort of women who stays at home and cleans and cooks for her husband while he works well guess what I do that too!!
Anyway that’s my Hermes rant over which by the way has been picked up by 2 newspapers!
Please Mr Hermes Driver don’t come and throw bricks at my house as you do know where I live.
