almost took an ice pick to my mums head


We were in Cardiff on Wednesday/Thursday and on Thursday took my parents to their local ‘Go Outdoors’ store – they are off on a cruise to Norway in March and to see the Northern Lights – which is all set to be splendid – but also requires some suitably warm clothing and footwear.  The clothing was fine – sourcing the footwear was more challenging and the chap who served my Mum and helped with the footwear had the patience of a saint, I on the other hand reached for an ice pick and explained to my Mum that had I used it on her it would have been £200 well spent – it’s fair to say my mother was somewhat demanding!
