WILL TODAY BE BETTER?

Well I bloody hope so! I think I'm starting to suffer from extreme boredom, being stuck at home, not allowed to go to the gym, bla bla bla. anyway, I apologise for being a grumpy bitch@!

This morning, after the kids are at school, Mike and I are going to get going on cleaning windows, I don't expect to get them all done today, but it would be nice to get all the upstairs one done. Seems Mike's girlfriend is popping in this morning too..... she's NOT supposed to cos she's been 'grounded' for a month (she wagged school for a day).... but both her parents work and won't know where she is anyway.... and I'm not gunna tell on her! I mean, by grounding her, they effectively stop Mike from seeing her at all too... and that ain't fair eh?


Oh yeah, for the first time in weeks I finally got a good night's sleep too, so that should help one's mood too. And it looks like we are going to visit Stew's Dad for his 90th Birthday next week, so a trip up to Auckland on sunday is on the cards, will be staying with his sister at Bethells Beach, west coast outta Auckland....looking forward to that. Last time we stayed with her the sanitation system was 'down' and we had to pee in a bucket... gawd I hope it's fixed!!! She has a 'composting' toilet in her house, cos they are not on any town system out there... joy! And she does not get cell phone coverage... it's almost like being in the dark ages..Ok, maybe not, but it is different.

  1. Well you certainly can not deny her a visit after all she's coming to help you out (right). I see a mini trip is in the cards. Always fun to get away and do something out of the normal. Have a fun filled day. I'll be back tomorrow to see how it all turns out.

  2. welcome to my world ... boredom ... there is only so many cooking and crime programmes you can watch on TV, books getting a little bit tedious and all ya mates are working during the week so you cant even get them to come round and gossip the day away! arghhhhhhh ... Chris how do you not eat your weeks food in one day? I've found being completely out of routine I'm thinking about my next meal or food ALL THE TIME, thankfully I've been able to curtail such evil thoughts but jeez its hard! *tears* ... only another couple of weeks eh?

    Ah as for the grounding ... um isnt that the idea of taking away her priviledges which includes seeing her boyfriend ... she is suppose to be at school?

  12. Bummer that you have to wait so long to hear if you will be moving. Maybe look at it like you will not move so if you do it will be a pleasant surprise.
    Hope your feeling better about things.

  24. Congratulations on putting your foot down and getting the "kids" to do some work. I wish that I had your power.

  25. What a nice mom you are, not telling on his girlfriend.

    My brother was best friends with a our next door neighbor growing up. His mom was a stay at home mom so any time they did something wrong or got into trouble, she was the first person to find out. It's amazing how many things she didn't tell my parents about! Even now she threatens to tell on my brother when he gives her a hard time.
