Not a Posh Bird

I am sorry to have been away for so long, y'know life and all that crap.

What have I been up to -

  • Shopping for Prom shoes.
  • Dealing with pre-menstrual teen (see above).
  • Realising that I now have no children at school (it's been 23 years!!).
  • Seeing my daughter go off to college summer school on her own at 7.30am, luckily she loves it.
  • Sulking.
  • Trying (and failing) to be less whiney.
  • Not having a good birthday (no change there then).
  • Eating an enormous amount of crap
  • Wondering if I should be less ungrateful (even for the no gift from either best friend or husband - not that I want anything from him in truth.  A couple of years ago I gave best friend a patio set - I kid you not).
  • Doing a whole lot of sweet FA.
  • Not dealing with tidying/cleaning the house even though The FW wants his parents for tea which will also mean Big SiL and BiL as they both need care.  The house is now sold and we have more boxes of stuff crappin' up the place.
  • Not finishing any crochet WiP (which are now UFOs).
  • Wondering if I am still a human bean.
  • Wearing a skirt as the sun has finally arrived.
  • Getting sun burned walking the dog.
  • Deciding the dog needs to see the vet, boy does he smell (the dog not the vet - smiley face).
  • The FW has money and has started shopping for food and cooking it, you wanna see the fancy vittles we 'ave bin eatin'.  I am happy to not be in the kitchen.
  • Having posh tea at Eastwell Manor with school friends and discussing our teenage daughters (7 between the four of us).  I took loads of pics but you know I am a techno-twit.
  • Thanking John Gray for his comment on my last post.  A Celeb read me!
  • Dropping the F-Bomb at posh tea - oops. Told you, not a posh bird.
  • Wondering what will happen tomorrow with the hooha about blogging readers and such - will it affect me, will I care?
If I disappear, or indeed if you was lovely knowing you all and thank you for your a sweet comments.  I expect to come out the other side hopefully unchanged but well, you never know do you?

PS today I have mostly been de-snailing the garden umbrella and then de-snotting it.  (25 of the little bastards at least!).  Not to self - do NOT leave it leaning against the fence in the rain. stupid.


  1. Sounds like you have had a busy time doing different things. Congratulations on the sale of your house. What are you going to do now? buy two smaller homes?
    It's hard to not feel disappointed when no-one remembers your birthday. Next year if you have any old cards from previous years, put them up?

  2. Sorry I was a bit vague there, it was parents in law house that has sold as they are both in separate care homes. FiL gets free care 'cos he has Alzheimers and MiL is just physically done in looking after him and her care is definitely NOT free, they are in their mid-eighties. Younger BiL is furious his inheritance is being spent! Glad mine are both gone.

  3. I can still see you but not sure if mine is still visible: should I worry? Nah, plenty other things to lose sleep over! Fmx

    1. As the Na'avi say "I see you".

      Yes everybody is still visible, everything is as it was and will ever be (I hope).

      PS How is the new home shaping up?


This is a place for me, to try and make sense of my world, and my place in it. My family and friends do not know about this, I need some privacy, peace and freedom.
Please don' t leave unkind comments, I have enough of that in 'real life'.
