Friends who are Liars and Drama Queen’s, I have no patience with them at all!!!

I am so frustrated. A ‘friend’ of mine has lied to me well actually it’s not just to me its to others as well ..

On more than one occasion.
What makes it worse is its someone I thought I could trust to tell the truth,
Someone I thought I could trust to share things with.

If there is one thing I can’t stand it’s a liar.
Guess it’s time to just not put any trust in people again.
I don’t understand.

I really really don’t. why they feel the need to make up this whole drama.

And then when questioned make up more and more drama to the point where it is so obvious now that they are talking

so much bollocks we can’t believe a word that comes out of their mouth.
Just MAN THE FUCK UP and be HONEST with people.

What Else Could Possibly Go Wrong?!!???

 

Total bad luck so far…

Rear tail light smashed… Allan backs out of our driveway into a parked truck behind

Allan made redundant 😯
Hence the reason I don’t get to update this blog as often as I would like and don’t get to spend as much time on the pc, although this does have a plus side as he doesn’t have to see the mother in law from hell all the time. 😈

Smashed rear screen on my car Just what I needed on the last day of school, Thank God for insurance although it still cost us £75 😡

Two panes of glass broken on the green house and the annoying thing is I could see this going to happen as we were standing on the patio when the dog saw the cat on the fence on that side fo the garden. the cat jumped onto the green house roof

(dog chasing cat in garden and jumped up at it.. thankfully dog ok and the cat got away) ok it was only £5 to replace the glass and the dog only nicked himself so a touch of germoline cured all 🙄

Then we had an incident with the pc, and phones ! Both boys were throwing the cushions around in the front room and bashing each other with them (Away from everything I must add) When Allan decided to be a kill joy and told them to put them back on the sofa.. At which point Alex threw the cushion it hit the sofa, bounced off and hit a coffee cup on the side table all over the pc which had the htc desire and cordless house phones both on charge on top of it…. a very quick grab of the phone’s and into my terry dressing gown to wipe it, and turn the pc off and get that all out and stripped and dried out for 24 hours.

(thankfully all seemed to be ok and are working fine after a lot of drying out and rice but could potentially have been a well over a £1000, pillow-fight  😳 )

Then the next day the boys were messing around upstairs and Ali’s glasses somehow got broken and i mean broken the arm snapped right off, now bearing in mind his poxy frames were from a designer range which is no longer in stock and he has reaction lenses as well so we were going to have to get a new pair made up, that was going to cost about £150 to replace thankfully they had a pair which were their old display ones so could take the clear glass out and put his in and because we go so often they didn’t charge although the frames have some scratches in the plastic but not even noticeable once they are on

The next thing was I got up the other day and went to go on the pc to look at our rather pathetic balance in the bank to decide if I can put some petrol in my car and do some shopping I go to get MY reading glasses out of the case I keep by the pc and the arm is snapped off… now I have an old pair with exactly the same frames that broke in half by the nose piece once (the dog jumped up and broke them) so thankfully Allan managed to make a good pair out of the two.

Then last but not least so far we have my leg… for months I have not been able to walk properly because of my feet now that is starting to clear up with the use of creams 4 times a day my feet seem to be healing up well and I can now get other shoes on and my bloody leg hurts like Hell, I have pulled the thigh muscle somehow what with this and the pain in my knee where I went down in the ice and bashed them both on the edge of the curb and now I can’t bend my leg. Living on pain killers and a tens machine constantly and having to use a walking stick.

not bad eh all in a matter of less than two weeks…….

On the plus side we took them to the royal engineers museum the other day and it never cost us a penny. thank god for these one year re admittance tickets for places. so at least the boys can say they have been out somewhere in the break when they ask them what they did in the holidays… (which really pisses me off anyway as you feel obligated to take them somewhere )

Lets just hope that things start to get better soon. 😥

 

First Snow 2012 YAY!!!

As you may have guessed it snowed the other night…  About time 🙂
I love snow!!

Of course everyone else here screams they hate snow.. The schools end up shutting just over a few inches of snow.. the roads are impassable to the average driver.. who has no experience of how to actually drive in snow..

Of course it doesn’t bother me, I am used to driving in the snow..

Oh and I own  an old  96 Landrover… Not the silly little yuppy one but the real discovery type, so if it got really bad I can still get out and about but to be honest, My Automatic 1996 Astra CDX still gets me out and about in any snow we have had in this country so I use that most of the time.
When I was a kid in both Germany and the states if the schools had been shut because of snow I would never have gone for half the winter…

I only remember one day that the school was shut… we had three feet of snow in the night.. but it was plowed / ploughed 🙄 and cleared ready for the next day.

Im sorry folks I love snow… So please stop moaning we get it for just the odd few days a year……..

I just wish it would snow in the summer….

I hate being fucking cold!!

The old woman who lived in a shoe, How I can sympathise!!

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe

She had so many children she didn’t know what to do.

She gave them broth without any bread,

Then whipped them all soundly

And put them to bed.

Oh how I sympathise with this woman!

Looking after kids is kind of ‘kicking my ass’ (thanks for that eloquent expression Mr Brad Pitt). My children are aged between 26 and 5. Looking after 7 kids was a no brainier. The older 5 no longer live with me, but have taken their toll on my life.. The youngest two having had them in my 40’s… Being an older mum… WOW

Now it’s a whole new ball game. The days are fine. they are now at school. and I still never get anything done. I either have my dad round or I take the rare opportunity to go shopping child free. or *shock horror* have a social life as such and talk to friends, Ok I do the basic necessities in the house but by no means am I house proud.
It’s the weekends that are the worst though, Nothing at all gets done in the house, well nothing but washing of school clothes and cooking to feed everyone. These two boys are constantly hungry. Occasionally, they forget their evil plans and I find myself able to jump on the treadmill for an hour and actually have a tidy up and get some bits done around the house.  holidays are the worst… the house really suffers… Trying to keep them amused, take them out, or let them get on with just trashing the house, I either join in with them or try to let them take over the house, I mean what else can I do? Basically its days filled with doing laundry, cooking, and visiting playgrounds or indoor soft play area’s when its too cold to play out.

It’s the evenings that are slowly driving me insane.Every day at 4pm when they get home from school, someone replaces my nice, normal children with screaming, bitching, fighting, terrifying little monsters. The rooms that I spent hours cleaning are decimated in minutes. My floors are suddenly covered in so much crap I have to wade through them. (yes ok the dog is to blame for a lot of that, he loves raiding the recycle bag to find some cardboard boxes to chew..)

Throw in homework, , making dinner, Taking Alex to Karate and by 9pm I am a zombie. I swear that Allan thinks I’m being overly dramatic when he walks in the door each night to a trashed house and I feed him and the kids, get them to bed and then retreat in the corner of the front room by the pc to spend just five bloody minutes on Facebook. After all, I get to stay at home all day just trying to survive being an older mum.

I think the old woman in the shoe just wanted some damn peace and quiet so she could update her status. 🙄
