Monday blues!!

Today has been a trial and a half.


I think everything went wrong from getting in bed last night. I couldn’t sleep, awful in fact. The other half got up at 130, never came back to bed till gone 3 and it just made my night even worse.


Frost was bad this morning, took ten minutes to defrost the car. The van in work wouldn’t start, and they’d had a break in over the weekend so hard for them.


Started my run and my oven went off. My mum broke down, couldn’t get the van going, then did, then broke down again. Hardly anyone came out to see me, or buy food more like. Was a tough sale day, and difficult just in general as I was so tired.


Had to pick mum and all her stock up from the garage, nightmare, as there was too much stuff. Couldn’t get mum in, yikes.


Came home via the garage, as had to pick up some booster packs in case the vans won’t start again tomorrow. Mum is in the spare one, which they had to clean because it hasn’t been used since Christmas.


I’m tired, I’m cranky and I want my bed… lol…


What I really need is a holiday, a couple of weeks off. Fat chance.


Paul goes back to work tomorrow and he’s had a hard time getting some pain killers from the doctor for tomorrow, they really don’t like listening to you and love causing you more grief.


So, I’m off to have a bath and a lovely sleep tonight 🙂



Great party, relaxing Sunday :)

Last nights 21st party was nice. Good to see some friends enjoy themselves. Boy was that room cold though. -1 and it was freezing in there, some of the young girls in dresses had to keep their blokes coats on. I think only the brandy and hugs from my other half kept me warm.

I think the idea was to get on the dance floor and the entertainment there was funny. But I am not a dancer even with a good drink in me.

Dj wasn’t bad, good food. Great company. It was even better that my mum drove us home, was nice for me to relax and have a drink without worrying about driving home.

Today has just been a nice chill out day. Caught up on some sleep, slept till 10am. Then got up to sort all my computer files out and transfer things to Final Draft 8 🙂 yey!!!

I’ve done some writing, a synopsis for a London producer wanting to start casting. Exciting stuff, and some brainstorming with my good friend for another script to a producer in America. All a go really.

Just glad things are nice and relaxed today, need a few weeks of ‘no problems’   before the spring sets in and I might get some more with the fish lol… spring is always scary due to all the bugs that can stay active over winter. Glad I heat, at least I can turn it up a bit sooner and sort out my problems before it is too late. 🙂

Heading off for a relaxing chilled out evening. Got to Dance is on the Tv and its nice and warm in here.

Speak soon all.


Sat night :)

Spent today playing around with my microscope. Took me too long to figure it out, and get it working on the computer. But, I did it 🙂 Yey!


So now we’re getting ready to go out to a 21st party. I am not driving, I’ve decided, I am getting a bit merry… So hopefully I can post tomorrow about how much fun it was. Lots of details to come, and maybe some pics.


Hope everyone has a great evening.



Weekend :) wooo hooo!

Yes, thankfully it is indeed Friday and after an awful night last night, I’ve just got up from a kip after work 🙂


Work was better, I think most people have been paid now, so they had a little bit of spare cash. It really has been such a long time since Christmas for everyone, me included.


So, now for some fun, I have time to catch up on everything, some sleep included. But more importantly, me time. I am so exhausted this week. It has been really stressful with things at work and at home. I hate having no time to think about problems and stuff going on, it  leaves the mind wiped.


We’re going out to a party tomorrow night, one which I am hoping will be fun 🙂 It will be, I know it will. Just hard to relax  really for me, but this time I am going to have a little drink.


Tonight I am going to have a big drink. 🙂


Speak soon….





Everything going wrong :(


Edit, bit of good news. Passed my Diving Theory test last night 🙂 now for the moan… lol

Today has been just one of those days.

I’ve had the baby koi on my mind all day, the temperature dropped to 8 degrees overnight. -1 on the car temp gauge with it looking to only get worse for the weekend. I really couldn’t have it drop any more. The heaters we’ve been bidding on, on ebay, have been going up and up and up. So, I made the decision to just buy the one from Holmeswood Koi and Paul fitted it today.

However, he wasn’t a happy bunny when I got home from work. It wasn’t working and he’d rang Barry up to find out why. There wasn’t enough water going through it, so it of course won’t work.

We had to strip the pump out, and the spray bar from the backi shower and get it working again. That is twice in two weeks now it has blocked. So, I can’t raise the baby temp too much, because I’m scared it will happen again.  😦 sigh.

Everything always comes when you’ve no money…. Paul doesn’t go back to work till Tuesday. His arm is still a bit sore, but hopefully he’ll be okay. We can’t afford him to have any more time off.

What really pisses me off and I have to say it, is his bosses just keep on thinking he’s taking the piss. When he really isn’t.

Would you carry on and drive after being involved in an accident, where you were hurt? Shock always sets in after a few hours and the pain starts the next day…

I don’t understand it, I really don’t. Yeah, we can do without money, food, fuel for me to even get to work, and we can cope with the stress it all puts on us.  Not a clue, just isn’t the word…

In other news, mum is leaving her job with me. It just hasn’t worked out, for my boss and for her.  And she is even more pissed off tonight because she’s had a letter from HMS saying she doesn’t qualify to retire at 60 and will have to work now till she is 65.

The government are just taking the ‘michael’ as well. Working class people, like us, don’t get to reach 65 and 70, we get to get near our retirment age and then we die. Nothing happens then does it. Your spouse or your partner doesn’t get a lump sum in compensation for ALL the taxes you’ve paid into dilligently for the last 50 years. You lose the flipping lot. So why in hell should you have to pay for a pension???

I am so annoyed with the system. It is so screwed up. I hate watching or listening to the news because it is full of people who are blatantly claiming for everything they can, when they should be out working!! there are genuine people who can’t work, can’t do anything and they are the ones who also get nothing and are forced to work through their pain.

I hate this country, I really do.

Going to chill  out for a bit, been a long, long day. 🙂 I could do with a good drink, but driving tomorrow means I can’t.

Have a good evening all, sorry for the rant.
