When the signs first appeared announcing a Nandos in Surry Hills I was a little concerned.
In the back of my mind was the thought, “Oh great, another fast food temptation”.
But it seems their burgers aren’t as fatty as I thought they might be.
Sure, the chips I had with the burger probably didn’t help my waistline much, but the burger itself seemed almost healthy.
And that was where I had lunch today.
After yesterday’s Christmas Party I woke remarkably early this morning. Not that it was a late night, nor that I drank all that much, but I nonetheless went to bed with a “sleep in” in my mind.
And there was really only one thing I wanted to achieve today: to pick up my new mobile phone.
My much loved N95 died a few weeks ago, and I’ve been limping along for the last few weeks with my work phone.
But after a while that’s become a drag in terms of dividing up personal calls, so I rang up last week to order a new one.
Somehow they managed to confuse my work address – where I asked for it to be delivered to – with an address in Moonee Ponds in Victoria.
Yes, my mobile phone went to Victoria!
After much discussion on the phone yesterday, the consultant I spoke to told me I could go into one of their shops today to pick up my phone (and this was confirmed by her supervisor).
Unfortunately the paperwork said nothing like that. I think she was just trying to get rid of me, actually.
So when I went to the shop today, I was initially told there was nothing they could do to help. Groan.
After a smile and chat with the consultant (who was really helpful) and his manager (who was also very helpful), I eventually got my phone, though it did take upwards of an hour.
Aside from that it’s been a reasonably relaxing day.
