Had fearful row with other half regards ruined slipper. Had unfortunate task of fabricating story in order to hide truth that was due to Mrs Payne's icing for other half's birthday cake. Explained to Mrs Payne that would use story that split jam on it whilst having toast.
Other half most annoyed at this, said further to ruining slipper, jam terribly expensive and bought it for herself as I had said didn't like jam. This most uncomfortable, however Mrs Payne thankfully added to fabrication saying I was attempting to open jar for her. This altogether satisfactory, although Mrs Payne thinking the rouse height of cleverness, said she had told me not to put slipper in washing machine. Furious at this.
