Ben's grandparents have given me money to pay for his monthly mobile phone charges for six months or so as a birthday present. We lucked out when I was in Cardiff this weekend trying to convert this to vouchers that could be presented to him, but this morning I have discovered "you can top-up by a voucher between £10-£50 from any Three store, or from any shop in the UK where you see the green Top-up logo".
There is a Three shop in Tooting High Street that is open until 8pm on Mondays so I can pick up vouchers on the way to the Antelope quiz tonight. The cash may yet be weaponised into a genuine gift as opposed to rascal counters!
Prodnose (curled of lip, turned up of nose): Fascinating.
Myself: That is the quotidian reality of my life mate.
Ian Faith: For one thing that goes wrong... one... one single thing that goes wrong, a hundred things go right. Do you know what I spend my time doing? I sleep two or three hours a night. There's no sex and drugs for Ian, David. Do you know what I do? I find lost luggage. I locate mandolin strings in the middle of Austin!
