I have been called for jury service AGAIN - only 14 months after serving before.  I think I shall exercise my right to be excused as it was only 14 months, but no doubt they will put me on a list and as soon as September comes they will ask me again, i don't want to do it again, i really get up tight and stomach isn't good - i hate doing it - but you know what - no doubt i will have to.

There was NO positive news

korin didn't get the house next to Keirs - she is devastated.  it all comes back to her not affording something on here own.  so dissappointing.  She is now back to trying to get something on this new development, but after I spoke to him it doesn't look good as the finance company - this fucking Sophie says she can't afford it - yet Korin has a mortgage offer and has the funds for deposits etc.  so annoyed,  an absolutely fucking nightmare of a fortnight. AND NO LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL AT THE MOMENT.

Wait wait wait - Estate agents and vendors - and waiting for housing associations coming back to us and to view other properties.  No one is coming back to us.  Praying and asking Angels - and STILL nothing.  PLEASE let us get some positive news soon !

What a Saturday

10 am in to town to get leahs birthday presents and pop to i fancy one with korin.#
11 am to the house for korin to view - she loves it - but not a nice estate agent and trying to pull a fast one with regards to getting her to have  mortgage through them.  really annoyed with him we shall see she has offered 72.500 for her share of 50 %
12 noon was back into town for Korin to have her nails done, I had to go with her well take her because she was so drunk the night before I don;t think the alcohol would have left her system.
1 pm - well 1.30 pm we got to Keir and Alis baby shower.  It wasn't a rip roaring time but Alis mates had done her proud and she had lots of presents and they loved the rocking chair.
Home at 4 pm.
Knackered.  We were invited to Alis sisters birthday party on the night but it was a 21st and me and Key are just not into that kinda scene these days.  By all accounts not many people went, which was a shame and I hate letting people down but if we had gone it would have only been for an hour o wasn't really worth getting dressed up for.

Went to Keirs today key to help get the huge wardrobe down and to the tip - and I went to see the presents Alison had of her mates and beautiful csrds - she did really well.

I will miss you Kozzie

Went with Korin on ~Saturday to see a mortgage advisor !  It's all going to be very tight but we think she can do it - in principal she has a mortgage offer and we hope that it all goes through, but I cannot tell you how much I am already worrying about how much I will miss her - I know we have our ups and downs at times, but really we are good friends and laugh a lot and cry together, and if she does move I will feel very lonely indeed.

I pray though that everything goes through for her as she needs to live her own life now. she's 25.  I truly wish she could meet someone really nice though and be happy too.

I suppose i feel bereft ? Down in the dumps kind of weekend.

Bereft ?    I shouldn't keep thinking about 'our' Marian, but she really did shit on me from a great height.  I don't know if she is feeling upset about not contacting me ?  just so she can stay with a husband who has been a bit SHIT for a very very long time.  8 weeks now, and although I have said I now hate her, I really don't.  We used to have a laugh on the phone sometimes, there was a lot of negatives, but we did have a laugh too.  I miss that.  I don't have anyone as close as that anymore, I have 'friends' but not ones that I meet up with for lunch or a cuppa ............... I could have, a lot of my customers have always said 'come see me' - lets do this together etc, and I always refused.  I had 'our' Marian to confide in - talk to - laugh with.  THEN  I think the last two years she hasn't bothered meeting up with me or going out with me or inviting me over to hers etc and every time her shite of a husband came home and she was on the phone to me she 'had to go' ?  but I still feel bereft.  It's been a bad weekend thinking about never EVER seeing her again.

Went out for my birthday meal................... to Turpins.  It seemed posher than usual but the prices weren't actually too bad considering  5 of us for £136 including the tip.  We didn't have puddings - I really couldn't having had Camembert and loads of bread and then a bloody pizza wrong choices really but it was cooked well, glad I stopped eating half way though the pizza though otherwise I think i might have been sick.

Today has rushed usual washing and tidying and cooking and sorting stuff with Korin,  Will do another post about that.  Still feeling down and back at work as usual tomorrow.  I wish I could do 3 days at 5 hours rather than 3 hours every day - hate going in every day and getting up early every day.  Oh my goodness I do moan.

and 12 month 2016 inchie themed book with Nederlands group 

Happy New Year

Boring Boring Boring bloody New Years Eve.  I took korin in to town and half expected to pick her up as taxis are tripple time after 12 midnight.  but he got a lift home.  me and key sat up til early hours as we were so acidy after an indian takeaway, it was nice, but with all the excesses, i felt so sick and bad and didn't get to sleep until around 4.30 am.  Got up at 9 am so tired tonight, but it's already nearly 2nd January, time whizzes by.  and in 9 days time i shall be 61 years old.  Fucking hell.

We me key and korin going out for breakfast in the morning.................then i shall come home and get clothes ready for work on Tuesday and for key nd korin will do her own.  i shall tidy the house, walk the dog, do  bit of shopping and it will then be back to the same old same old boring day by day we know and love. - well, we know.  New people starting at work on 3rd january, well a girl i already know Helen, she;'s a nice kid but she talks so quietly and does my head in having to keep asking her 'sorry didnt catch what you said'/  hope not seeing her for 12 months she talks a bit better she may have come out f her shell a bit.

2017 I hope you are kind to us.  health wise, and the forthcoming event of Lunas birth, I love you already and i don't know you yet.  I just know you are going to be an amazing granddaughter and make me laugh and make me look forward to taking you out and showing you off to the world.  heres to you baby Luna Rose.
