Week­end fi­asco was text­book

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - OPINION - Ma­cleod

Thought I should share the texts that my oh so hi­lar­i­ous wife Pauline sent to our chil­dren and friends last Sun­day night.

Text 1: So Don­ald and I were meant to go to the cin­ema on Satur­day night. I found the book­ing con­fir­ma­tion and re­alised he had booked it for Fri­day in­stead. He had to then can­cel the posh res­tau­rant he had also booked. All the tick­ets had now sold out. So in a mad frenzy we rushed into Ed­in­burgh for a mati­nee per­for­mance… or­dered a pizza later!

Text 2: Ar­rived to­day at ho­tel in Perth. Go­ing to our friend Dougie Ma­clean’s con­cert. They had no record of our book­ing. Turned out Don­ald had “mis­tak­enly” booked it for last night. Thank­fully, they had a room avail­able, but he had to pay again.

Text 3: Went out for din­ner be­fore show, asked my hus­band to check show times. He does ... IT WAS LAST NIGHT!

Text 4: Now in taxi head­ing to Dunkeld with a very em­bar­rassed Don­ald sorry, Baldrick, to try to find Dougie so he can apol­o­gise for our no-show.
