First there was the batteries. I ordered AA batteries from Tesco, and they were substituted. They said AA on the form but just a different brand, but they actually gave me AAA which won't make the mouse work. In fact I don't think we need AAA for anything. Darn.
Then there were the t-shirts. There was an incredibly reasonable deal for t-shirts, @ £2 each for plain, wash, tumble, drip, line dry basic t-shirts. I got a selection because I thought it would take bear through. Not only that, I thought cheap t-shirts on eBay are likely to be a bit on the small size so instead of getting 7-8 I got 9-11. Bear isn't very small for his age, I would say he was a little tall so I thought it would be safe. Bear just looked at me when I unpacked them and held one up against himself. He could wear it as a dress. Double Darn
I caved and got the fusible stiffener. It's supposed to be 'iron on'. That would be fine if I could work out which was the sticky side. The problem is that both sides seem equally shiny. I think it will be a case of trial, error and spray on adhesive. Triple Darn.
To cheer myself up, here is a link to the Buzz Feed set of pictures showing Cats that Have Made Poor Life Choices. I think my favourite is No 7.
