Today the noise has been incessant, with one or both children whining of crying at all times.
Today has been disagreement after disagreement.
Today has been constantly telling Piran not to do this, or not to do that.
Today my parenting style was mostly hypocritical.
Today was a day of bribery and the currency has been biscuits.
Today has been back to back episodes of TV shows just for a five minute break.
Today was a hamster wheel day of meals that were not eaten and food picked off the floor.
Today was empty and lonely even though I spent it with friends.
Today has been feeling every last minute of the seven months of sleep deprivation.
Today my voice has been sterner and louder than it should have been.
Today was filled with irrational thoughts and overreactions.
Today I felt like the whole world was against me.
Today I moved constantly and still got nothing done.
Today my body hurts and my brain refuses to work.
Today a stained sink seemed to represent everything that felt wrong with my life.
Today was far too introspective which is never good.
Today there have been very few smiles, and far too many tears.
Today there was a synchronised poo moment that made me wonder what I had done to deserve this.
Today was a battle of wills where every victory just wore me down further.
Today has been feeling a failure at everything that I do.
Today has been chaos.
Today cannot end soon enough.

Yay. Day off.

Slightly annoyed because I had to wake up at 7am because we were expecting a delivery anytime between 7am and 6pm and Mr C decided he would go to work early. Grr. Still, Dad and Stepmum arrive this evening for the bank holiday weekend so I have plenty to do!

Well it is now 11 and I have done 2 loads of washing, started cooking a gammon joint, cleaned teh kitchen, tidied their bedroom, had breakfast, spent money online and got my delivery. I have also danced around the kitchen like a loon to Walk like a Egyptian too but that didn’t take long.

So now I have to decide what to do with the rest of my day. The bathroom, my bedroom and the living room need tidying and cleaning and I need to finsh the ham and make soup for tonight’s dinner and a cake. But first I will walk to the post box, post Lovely Lady’s birthday card and get some fresh air.

Might post some recipe’s later if the food turns out well too.

The bad news part II

October 26, 2005

Then Monday afternoon: I have a colleague who I have worked with for over a year and who trained me and the others on my team when we started. He has recently been signed off sick with stress. There is a ton of history behind this but I must admit I do not have a good opinion of him anymore and I haven’t had for a while. He was lazy and full of imagined self importance and when that was called into question he went sick. He came back last week and it was horrible, he just created a real atmosphere on our team. I did mention it to my boss last Friday as it was making me worried about coming to work. Anyway it transpired that he had handed his notice in on Monday morning. Then he just picked his bag up and left at 3pm on Monday without saying goodbye. Rude – yep I think so.

An hour later he called my colleague and basically accused her and the other three of us of forcing him out, of lying to our boss and telling her he was lazy (he was and we have the stats to prove it) that he felt he had to apologise for being off(we tried our hardest to make him feel welcome (and he was a moody bastard who barely said hello to us) and that he had taught us everything we know and we threw it back in his face ( I know a fuck load more than he ever did and I have been here a fifth of the time!). He said all this to my lovely friend who is the nicest person ever and therefore did not stick up for herself and just got upset.

So as I did then, and feel I need to know, I must say one thing (please shut your eyes for this bit if you have a delicate nature)


Thank you. That is better!

..has been so horrible and so upsetting that I can’t even post about it yet. That sounds a little dramatic but it has offically been a BAD DAY.

Instead I have been popping by to see all of you and leaving you some nice comments. Spreading some joy on a bleak Monday.

I might post later ;o)

    I finally got to read your blog for the first time today and all I can say is, be glad it ended almost 6 hours ago.

    It’s now Tuesday… have things brightened up? And what happened yesterday that was so horrible and upsetting?

    Do I have to cheer you up with some hooliganish football chants about Portsmouth?
