(((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))) to Tina and Batty for feeling fluey. Get the jabs. I have to get them every year since I did my lungs in when I nearly died with a flu about ten years ago. I worked in a hospital for a while a few years ago and seriously.... GET THE JABS.
Sorry to hear your itchy missing bit is ... um ... itching chris. Give it an imaginary itch.
Sorry about the tenants Con. Are these the tenants you thought were the ants pants? Hope it turns out okay.
Been busy.The bullying continues with H
at school. School councellor seems like a right idiot. She rang me. Didnt want me up there so I will make an appointment with the head in a few days. ("Facebook is NOT our responsibility!" ... um yes it is according to the law and the education department!.... and the bullying is VERY open and happening to her face AT YOUR SCHOOL!) She seems to think I am a "hover" parent... and I'm not... if anything I let H fight 99% of her own battles so she can learn how to deal with idiots (with some advice from me).... but when the councellor is the idiot I feel I need to step in. H is also having huge problems with the "other idiot" who put her through hell on the last visit. Oh joy. Cant do alot about that one but will face the school. STILL cant access a councellor for her. She is off the planet... so angry with the world poor kid.We had a murder in our street!
A few doors up. APPARENTLY I was standing two doors away right when it happened !!!!! I was wondering if I should go down to the creek to see why the water wasnt flooding our street and saw this man wandering along so decided not to. Everyone else in the street (yes and me too) are a bit blase about it... why did noone tell ME there was a "residential ward" (house) for heavily medicated psychiatric patients in my street? This is the result of a past government deciding to "intergrate" mental patients (read: we dont want to foot the bill for institutions anymore). At the time my mothers neighbours were both psych nurses for closed wards and they were horrified that some of their patients were being released. In this case one resident stabbed another resident. Being charged with murder because he was off his meds.... and will be put into prison.... why does this sound so wrong?
Wonderful huh? Love budget cuts in government. We have the worlds highest rate for teen suicide and harm and one of the lowest budget for youth mental health in the western world. M found a dead rat
in front of the washing machine downstairs !!!!!
Of course I had to clean it up.... got a broom and a bucket, swept the rat into the bucket, ran all the way to the bin with the bucket about my head screaming EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW and threw the rat AND the bucket into the bin... I liked that bucket I did... my favourite bucket.
Mind you I would love to know how it died... so I can duplicate his death on any other rats down there.
Morgan asked me... "How do you think it died Mum?" I told her ... "Most probably got bitten by a snake!"
.......... then again.......it isnt totally unbelievable with the creek flooding so much this summer.I dyed my hair!!!!!!
:o I have been forever blonde... well except that one time I went bright orange... and I did try dark brown once *puke*.... so thought I would go "Dark Medium Blonde" so the roots wouldnt show so much. Dark Medium Blonde my arse!!! More like Dark Mouse Blonde!
It looks horrible... though everyone who has seen it says it looks lovely... AND its SO much softer.. loving that. Morgan held the pack up to my head and says it EXACTLY the colour on the box.
Can I help it if I am colour blind under those supermarket lights. Was thinking about one shade lighter... but then that would be "blonding" it again so I will bear with it and see how I go. I had my hair cut the day before...A fringe and a bob type cut...... with the white blonde it looked "edgy"... now I look like Dora the Mouse Haired Bloody Explorer!!! I'm Fat!
Had work this week and NOTHING FITS!
Went to buy some "Size Monsterous" black trousers so at least I could wear my shirts to work... but I couldnt bring myself to buy any because they all made me look HUGE ("Do these make my bum look big?... YES! because your bum is HUGE!)
My oldest gave me a lecture about putting on weight... strange... because she is NOT like that... but she IS concerned about how my back has been playing up which it does if I put on even a kilo or two... so its out of love not appearance I know that. And I am usually SO active and I'm not right now which is a catch 22, because if I'm not active I will gain more weight. grizzle grizzle.My toe is poisoned!
At the beginning of summer I went for my first ever pedicure (well professional one anyway)... and since then I have had a tiny bit of pain but I have been in summer sandles all summer. Had to wear a pair of closed in shoes last week and almost died with the pain. Doc says my nail is infected so have had it bandaged in anti-stuff... thats a great look with a big wrapped up toe sticking out of my sandles. And heres the silly part.... I am the one always lecturing anyone who will listen to always check out a nail and pedicure place for hygiene BEFORE you ever set foot in the place! grizzle grizzle.
Still looking for a job that has more hours. Being sent for two jobs this week that are an hour and a half commute EACH WAY! UGH! Feeling so lost. NEED a job thats fulltime so I can live and pay the rent.... cant really do that and leave H to get herself to school and be at home alone after school. Damn.
Apart from that....... everythings fine!
Tiny things in the major scheme of life.
Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....
