So, the week before Christmas just what you need is your camera finally giving up the ghost isn't it! It went completely kaput yesterday whilst I was trying to photo some craft stuff (I didn't think it was that bad but obviously the papper objected!!). But hey, who needs a camera over Christmas...oh yes, we do!!
So, last night we spent ages researching cameras and trying to find a new one before Xmas. So, we found one with everyone's favourite, Argos. Tried to find one in stock at a store, all out of stock. So, we could get it delivered; hooray! But they gave us a time of 7am to 6pm on Friday; hmmm, between school runs, hairdressers and food shopping, that wasn't going to happen! So, I rings mum, yup she'll be in, so I put down hers as a delivery address. So, we go through the checkout, add a memory card for good measure, enter the credit card details and get the confirmation: they'll be delivering the memory card on Friday at a delivery charge of £4.95, but the camera's out of stock!!
So, there were phone calls; no Mrs Argos lady, we don't want the memory card without the camera, no we don't want to wait until the New Year for the camera, yes, we would like a camera at Christmas!
So, eventually we cancelled it all and started the search again! We've reserved one at an Argos near Rob's work; why do I get a horrible feeling he's going to come away with just a memory card sized carrier?!
