I try hard to accept some things that I cannot change.

And not to have my feelings hurt.

But honestly, it's getting really hard.

I am feeling BETRAYED.

LIED to... by omission, but still lied to.

Why, when you raise your kids and TRY to always be there for them, they go and betray you without a thought to how it might make you feel?

Clearly my feelings and thoughts on the matter mean NOTHING to you.  NOTHING.  

OVER IT.  Your choices do affect me, and I will react, cos I am like that.  I REACT. 

And just to be very clear, in case you didn't already know ... I am not OK WITH IT.  NOT AT ALL and NEVER WILL BE.


Moving on...  I am almost at the binding stage of my niece's baby quilt!  I got so much done yesterday, and I am feeling thrilled to bits with it.

I will show you later, once the binding is pinned down.  

It took me quite a while to choose the PERFECT binding fabric too!  But I think I made the right choice.  

I think I'll get Stew to drag me out to the shops today... lol... 'drag me'!   I feel the need to get out of the house.  

OH forgot.  We did get out for an hour yesterday, we needed a new toilet seat!
We had fun trying to find a really nice one, and settled on this one... and YES, yes you DO want to see my new toilet seat!:

ABOVE: isn't it so pretty?  I love it. It's totally ME. Doesn't that sound weird when I'm referring to a friggin toilet seat?  ha ha ha!

Anyway, that's all I have for now.  I'll be back later with an updated photo of the baby quilt.


ABOVE:  For Dee.  My finished Dresden Plate quilt, with the gathering thread still in!  I have since pulled it all out.  *smiles*

We are now off to have some lunch, Griffin is home and has brought his mate with him.

We went over to Devonport for lunch, we ended up here:

ABOVE:  It was very nice, a lovely atmosphere.

After lunch we had a little walk/drive around the waterfront there, then came home.

In response to a comment today, which had a reply to it. 
If you swear at your mother, treat her like shit and so on, then yes, she is too good for you.  MOTHER'S deserve LOVE and RESPECT, nothing more, nothing less.

I can honestly say only HALF my kids treat me well, don't swear at me or run rough shod over my feelings.

And if that causes offense, maybe you should look at yourselves.

ABOVE:  a stunning day in our beautiful Auckland City.   

End of Day:  yaa!  I finished the baby quilt, and am now waiting for the address to send it to.  
I will show you the quilt tomorrow, it's too late in the day now. Actually, it's almost 1 am!  I better get to bed.
nite nite

      'She's too good for them' are you serious, those are her kid's you're talking about.
      That was just disgusting

    2. The funny thing is she IS to good for some of them, and that's is just a fact of life. But some people will always be losers no matter what their parents do, I should know as some of them are technically my siblings. So in reply to Joan I give you a high five, well said continue on :)

      To all the haters, piss off! Your idiots who know nothing.

      Kind regards,

      An agitated steve.

      (P.S. for those who don't know I am chris's son, and have every right to comment as I see fit, if you don't like it tough shit go cry somewhere else pansy.)

    3. Ha ha Steve, well said!!

  9. I though that you did finish it Chris but I am in bed using the iPad and it's a bit hard to look back. I will look when I get on the computer

  10. I love Devonport. Glad you got out & had a nice afternoon. I will take a guess at which kid upset you :-).

    Go Steve, well said :-)

  11. Hugs to you darlin and The Patriot looks exactly like The Honest Lawyer in Toronto. Also a former bank. It's an English pub:-)
