I'm the kind of person that likes to do things with excellence, aka I'm perfectionistic. That's a derogatory word and one that needs to be dealt with. I am trying to move away from that because you end up not even starting things for fear that it will not be done completely. Case in point: these are the first set of photos you are seeing because I have hundreds and I didn't know where to begin.
So let's start at the beginning.
These couple of gems were taken at the airport. It just so happens that right before the security stop there is a coffee shop. And when it is 6 a.m. and you need coffee and the kids need some water with their breakfast, you inadvertently buy 3 of them. You come to find out that they were not that thirsty and so you have an entire bottle of water that you now have to pitch in order to get through said security.
Any frugal person would grab their receipt and return the water. I couldn't fathom just throwing it away when it cost an arm and a leg at the airport to begin with. My hubby enjoys this apparently and shoots a couple of photos of me somewhat dreading trying to return water. I'm standing there thinking, "Please don't stand alongside me as I ask for my piddly pence back. Oh shucks, there comes someone now." It is then my turn, and the woman happily obliged. She totally understood why I would want my money back. All that stress for nothing. Whew!
That looks like £1.64 thankyouverymuch! Nan from "Moms the Word" would be really proud right now.
And since I have not had a lot of time this week to blog, I only included the first couple of photos from Rome. I'll have to do a series of posts to get them all in with the stories that go along with them. Bear with me, I'll get them on here.
When in Rome... takes lots of pictures.
