I’ve not really posted this week as I’ve just had so much bad news and I didn’t really feel like, but maybe if I write about it I’ll get it out of my system?
So here’s the Good, Bad and Ugly of my week so far….
The Good (because I need to be positive!)
Miss L did brilliantly with her spellings this week and her reading is getting really good. Also she’s being adorable and wonderful at the moment.
Paul, who putting up with my worries and concerns and gives me a cuddle when I need one. Also he pursuaded me to put the heating on – having heat in the house is heavenly 🙂
And of course Betty who sits by the back gate and won’t move until I come back from shopping – love her!
One of my best friends has been diagnosed with skin cancer. It just breaks my heart, she’s 26 and the kindest hearted person I’ve ever met and has her whole life ahead of her. So hopefully when she’s had her surgery and whatever else they do, she’ll be free and clear of it!
My god-daughters son is still in the special care baby unit, and is still critical even after several weeks. I can’t imagine the stress she must be going though. My thoughts and love are with them x
One of my oldest friends works for AIG in the UK and I hope he manages to keep his job, he’s really worried about it as he doesn’t think that they’ll save the UK staff.
All of our savings, literally every penny is in HBOS and we don’t know whether to pull it out or leave it? The government changes their story day to day, so I don’t trust them…but I don’t know what to do for the best?
I had the job interview from hell and it became very apparent that I need to work for myself but I don’t know what to do or even where to start.
One of the mothers at the school gate seems to be totally offended that we only have one child, and seems to take great delight at making catty comments on a daily basis about our ‘poor’ daughter. The latest was that isn’t it a shame we don’t have an older sibling for Miss L, so she’d have some second hand school uniform!
A few people generally elderly relatives have made the odd comment over the years, but nothing like this venom from an almost stranger, I was truly shocked.
To be honest I think that Miss L labour and the ensuing emergency surgery to get her out damaged me in someway as we’ve just never managed to get pregnant again. As it’s been nearly 6 years, I’m guessing that we probably won’t. But it’s just never been an issue before and I’ve never had anyone be unkind about it.
So as you can see I’m feeling sorry for myself and my friends, and I just needed to vent – thanks for listening x
