What a numpty

Boxing DAY - I only went and locked us all out the house - 2.5 hours to get back in and £80 for a locksmith - which was cheap as the first one wanted £160 - and the 2nd one came in an hour and managed to get us in.

Thank you mr locksmith.

Have a nasty cold and cough - feeling really rough and back at work tomorrow. Yak yak and triple yak yak yak.

Where did Christmas go huh.#

Christmas Day 25.12.11

Wouldn't be christmas without the obligatory Radio Times, we used to have to buy the TV times too - they must have gone out of business since The radio times now lists every TV programme going all over the festive season.

And a blingy watch - journalling a bit out of sequence but you get the drift.

love these blingy earings

I'm a very lucky lady, my blingy purse, Korin remembered I wanted.

Another pressie i asked for and got - thanks again to hubby.

I;'ve wanted these for ages but because they're so expensive I put them on my christmas list - thank you my lovely hubby.

Christmas Eve -

Well, it all comes together in the end,.

Had to take DH to Badger clinic as he has a terrible chest infection - poor thing - having said that my throat is sore and I keep nodding off to sleep so hope I don't get it too.

Eaten far far too much - as per usual - feel fat and bloated and can't wait now until the festive food is out of the way - how ridiculous is that...........................watched text santa and really want to do something volunteer wise in 2012 - will have a scout around to see what I fancy doing. I suppose I could help with reflexology in a hospice or something along those lines.

Hoping CHRISTMAS DAY is a good day - that we can all enjoy the food and relax and keep calm etc.

so so tired and worn out

work is just the most boring thing I have ever done in my life - thank goodness i have my reflexology to go and talk to people who are normal.

I work with people who basically need to nit pick over things, and stand around talking and messing about rather than working - I am so sick to death of the radio blarring all the time - and turn it down when I can, now that one girl sits RIGHT IN FRONT OF IT ? it's difficult to get at - maybe that is why she sits right in front of it - HOW can you do effective work if you are sitting listening to the radio?

I have applied for a reduction in hours by 3 per week - it's not a lot, but I don't mind my 1 pm finish so much - the boss said no 3 months ago, but now they have a new policy to cut down costs - cost improvement programme - so maybe they'll let me - i know the girls won't be happy but I gotta think about me. I am fed up doing things to please other people. 2012 is going to be my year, I'll be 56 years old and I'm sick of dancing to other peoples tunes. I will also try and rebuild my reflexology business, maybe get some teaching again? Fingers crosssed.

Gotta lose a stone again though too - back to Slimming World in the new year.

I & my beautiful DD are devastated

the chap my DD has been seeing since February of this year is STILL with a girl whom he has been with for nearly 4 years - they have broken up a few times, so he told my DD (it now transpires that he has NEVER broken up with her) - last September for instance when he met my DD and went out with her for about 8 weeks and then broke up with my DD because he said he couldn't get his ex out of his head ( more like he felt guilty cheating on his girlfriend - I just wish my DD knew then what she knows now ) - then February he came back to my DD saying he had been a fool and he'd definitely finished it with his girlfriend (lying toerag ) and has been at our house 2 - 3 nights a week, sitting chatting with her dad, having lifts home, bringing DVD's for us to watch - and generally being a nice lad - saying to my DD that he loved her to bits, and that he wanted to share the rest of his life with her and have kids with her AND ALL THE TIME LYING TO HER AND HE WAS STILL WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND. We are all devastated really, I probably don't feel as badly as her (obviously) but she's just so so lost and upset and angry and hurt and low. She has text this girl the true facts and HE has said that my DD is stalking him and won't leave him alone, more lies - can't believe he's turned out to be such a scumbag. We are all hurt and upset. His GF Believes him.

DD has since seen him and she told him he was lucky to have gotten away with it, where his GF is concerned, he said he has gotten away with nothing and Karma has certainly turned back on him - WE HOPE IT STAYS TURNED ON HIM AND HE LOSES HIS GF TOO AND HAS A TERRIBLE CHRISTMAS.

I hate it when you get to this stage .....

When I've written a few cards (don't send many anyway) - but have ran out of stamps too send the others and waiting on someone getting back to me with an address ........

When I've managed to wrap two presents - people I am seeing first - but won't be handing them over until Tuesday/Wednesday this week when we are having 'meet up's' - so I've had to put lists besides the presents in my treatment room ready to go - feeling anxious about it - I know it's stupid .................

When I've just written a list of food to get - and already panicking that the shops are going to be overly busy and I'm rushing around finding that the stuff I want is already out of stock .........

and I could go on and on about how many 'when's i actually have, I am letting all this Christmas malarkey to get to me - when, lets face it, it's for one full day - Tescos and asda normally open again on Boxing Day !

Right, panic over, just had to get my head straight.

7th December 2011

Days go by so quickly. Annual leave today - took Keir to his counsellor and then to doctors and then home for half hour - quick lunch and then out to take him to college and then home - but thought I'd have my hair cut - which I did - then home and got on with accounts for accountant - all done - just got to parcel them up and get them sent tomorrow - so will be with her in much better time than last year - she has warned us that she would charge us if we didn't get them to her until january, I suppose it must be awful having everyones accounts to do all in the month of january.

Not looking forward to the bill though.

Didn't get the job,

Really quite gutted. Don't feel I have the energy to keep applying - keeping looking, going for interviews. TIRED>

Sunday, 4 December 2011


exactly the same as last year - I have been looking for a fibre optic 4' tree rather than having to decorate the christmas tree again this year, but sadly couldn't find one - I will go and get some crackers to put on the tree too........feeling festive - nah not really yet!

How strange is that - decided to photograph our christmas pressie to each other - a 43" plasma TV and at the same time the coke-cola advert was on - DEFINITELY CHRISTMAS NOW.

A Shiney christmas tree for either side of the french doors.

my £3.99 bargain for the front door - frames the glass perfectly.
