Donator

Posted 22 December 2018 - 12:09 AM

So. I noticed a coupla weeks ago i had the download timer and my name had gone from gold to pink. Ah, time for a donation me thinks. Did the donation thing for £20 and chose BACS. Anyway, my bank needed me to log in with my authenticator (use passkey normally as can never find said authenticator) so off i go one a half hour search that included stepping on a cat (she's black and lies on a dark green carpet), stepping on scissors and stepping on cat sick (revenge ?) To find said authenticator's battery had given up and needed a new one.

 

Ah well, life eh ? Couldn't phone the bank up as it was late so phoned them the following day and it's take about a week. 

 

Up with it so far ? I bet you know what's coming.

 

Authenticator arrived today, set it all up, logged in went to set up new payee and................................ i hadn't written down the BACS info. Arghhhhhhhhhhh.

 

Anyway i went through the donation again for £20 and it all went swimmingly. So you're not getting £40 (wish i could afford to pay that) but £20 which you'll probably get Monday.

 

So to surmise

 

I buggered up

 

I did good

 

I trod in cat sick

 

Happy Christmas everyone

In my experience cats are always sick just where the human foot will find it. In my case it was slipper less first thing in the morning in the dark. I managed to tred it in all down the landing too before I turned the light on to discover the carnage and a cat smirking in the corner.

Merry Christmas yourself and thanks for the laugh.
