Is it friday yet?

You know when you have ‘one of THOSE days?’…Well I’ve had one of those WEEKS! I almost wrote a few posts for these but figured one is enough if only for the sake of getting it out of my head…a mini blog rant if you will…without the anger lol. Besides most of it is mentioned in other blogs so I’ll link the relevant ones in too (if anyone’s interested)

All I’ve wanted to do is settle down and blog (lol saddo) ….and take a nice long relaxing bath…and have a lay in…just ONCE before I start working and my diary fills up; but its been hiccup after hiccup after…well you see where this is going. The last week was all about cleaning cleaning cleaning… whilst the rest of Britain had a nice day off for the bank holiday Monday I had a visit from mother (here)…the opposite of relaxing. Also I was meant to sign the work contracts but that got postponed.

Tuesday I had a bit of an ‘issue’ in a popular cosmetics/pharmaceutical store when the staff literally laughed me out of the shop after enquiring about a product of a rather ‘personal’ nature (no not vagina cream -mentioned here) I had then driven 10 miles away to get the same product elsewhere….yes I complained about that and they sent me a gift voucher to apologise

Wednesday: finally a day to blog…but oh no I had to prepare for the house inspection and also spent a lot of time figuring out how to solve the problem of nesting pigeons…seeing as one has set up home on our sky dish! Our signal (sky) has been sabotaged meaning every recording has failed…its not like I wanted to see how that series ended anyway…let alone watch JB from JLS *rubs thighs* on deal or no deal… I ended up taking the power hose to it -sorry pigeon activists but nesting on one thin line of metal was never going to work anyway, the man pigeon would knock down all her hard work every time he flew off (typical male) so they had to go. I was gentle (friends suggested throwing things so this was the nicer option) and squirted her and she soon got the message BUT left her twigs still swinging -thus interfering- in her wake. -She since started a fresh on the roof of the house (other side) instead.

Thursday: we had the house inspection (and passed) …(He’s still not come back btw so I’ve gone back to living like a normal person lol) But I then had loads more errands to run and stuff to do for example arrange for an annual gas inspection (tee hee) for next week

Friday: My husband bought home 2 unexpected guests and left me with them for an hour or 2 while he ran a few errands… He then presented me with a receipt for a parking fine for £150….great(!)

The weekend: Hubbys therapy session was cancelled again after a guy from work turned up Friday night to tell him he was on call that weekend so to keep his phone on him. He ended up working 14 hours Saturday and Sunday…I ran out of coffee….…. to top it off I had the stuff with my ‘friend’ to deal with (see post here -still haven’t heard back btw) -still with no coffee!! Hubby then told me he’s on 4days on, 4 days off, 3 days on, 3days off… work wise so he wont be home next weekend either (boo) BUT will be home for the next 4 days (yay)

Monday…went to that place mentioned above to spend my vouchers…seeing as it’s almost payday for us -and now down £150 I didn’t take my bank card and vowed to only use change to cut my spending -not that I’m a shopaholic by any means but its always easy to put it on the card without thinking. Managed to get more products than intended (thank god for 3 for 2 offers etc) all for free and felt smug as I strolled into Tesco to grab my coffee…only to notice in amongst my coins I had picked up 2 American ones…making me 20p short…arrrrgggghhhhhhhhh! Back home for me but luckily I got it in the end.

I went for my first official ‘shift’ in the evening…oh my god I think I’m in love with her (my ‘boss’ but she doesn’t like thinking of it that way) We clicked, she has a whole room that needs organising *rubs thighs* and for now at least it seems I’ll basically be there to keep her company, help with organising and just help out with general stuff. For now she doesn’t need me that often…but she WANTS me so I’m booked in for another few shifts this week…including some over the weekend seeing as ill be bored without hubby anyway so why not make some money while I’m at it? (yay)


Pigeon nest

Pigeon nest

Today….(urgh) The sky guy came and apparently it wasn’t the pigeons fault…the guy who had installed it had pointed it straight at our neighbours tree…which has since grown…so he has now moved it to the other side of the house…just where the pigeons are re-nesting *face palm*

I then had my dentist appointment… 1pm so I got there at 12:30 (forms etc and I always panic about traffic and parking) I was called in and told the guy whom booked me in should have booked me for a DIFFERENT appointment for a different (I guess more extensive) cleaning which is an hour and a half rather than 45 minutes (Again it makes me teeth sound grim…they’re really not…though they are weak and problematic) He told me about this one tooth which was worrying when it was x-rayed in September…so seeing as its been 8 months he was worried about it needing root canal (fine by me) and needed to get me x rayed ASAP…TODAY… as an EMERGENCY (Honestly he was so anxious about it it got me really worried)…and depending on those results I may need the root canal…TODAY.
Fine…so when’s the cleaning?
‘oh well we are booked up till July now but when you come back each time for the fillings you can check for cancellations….’
FillingS? Plural? How many??
HOW DISGUSTING! Struggled not to burst out crying there and then, how embarrassing! I have SO many fillings (I blame grandma for my sugar addiction) but no matter how much I take care of my teeth something ALWAYS goes wrong; I had one crumble last year thanks to a hairline fracture that was put aside so I could have a wisdom tooth removed…and in the recovery time it broke, she temporarily filled it 3 times before doing a permanent one and in the mean time – because I was so scared of chewing on that side the tooth on the opposite side got a battering and broke too!
That one shattered and my dentist at the time couldn’t remove it herself so again temporarily filled it and I couldn’t physically eat on my own hen do…sounds fun if you’re all for pre wedding starvation and drinking away the night – which I was- but trying to explain it to the other girls whom were insistent on spending a fortune on food….well its shit lol. Luckily I had one permanently filled before the actual wedding day…but the other side had to wait for another 2 months after to have the whole thing removed…. Needless to say I was put off by the time we moved here.

Anyway, I then waited another hour for the x-rays – my new dentist is lovely- and thankfully the results were good. No need for root canal just a filling. He also explained that its actually 4 fillings total (including the EMERGENCY tooth from today) and three of them are restoration on ones that my old dentist messed up. She made them too bulky, there’s too much overhang or she hasn’t left enough room for flossing etc so THAT’S why the ones next to them are getting weak. Rather than patronising me about cleaning (I DO clean them -I just don’t floss EVERY day) He told me to think about limiting my sugar intake OR just upping my brushing to after every sweet thing (I’m gonna need more toothpaste) So three hours later I came away with an appointment in June to do the three on one side all in one go *shudder*-with the possibility of doing the last one too depending on how it goes on the day…and THEN we will book in the cleaning

SO…after all that, I get home and hubby has cleaned the house AND seeing as its finally pay day he decided to treat me to a Chinese for dinner…. How sweet (wonder what he’s done lol) We get to the restaurant (one of our favourites) and the fucker is closed!!! Meant to be open but closed! Arrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh. At 6:30pm we got home and HE put dinner on while I finally had my bath and now…I’m finally sat, semi-relaxed…with my evening coffee…I suppose the moral of this post is that…I got there in the end and it made it SO much more enjoyable lol….

AAAND Breathe 🙂 …Is it friday yet?

    Wow, bit of a week you had there and it’s only Tuesday night! I haven’t posted about mine, but I have had leaky roof, so been waiting in for roof repairers drawing short breaths and shaking heads. Got so cold today after getting soaked walking Ollie, I put the heating on, only to find it wasn’t working, too much air in the system! Finally got it going, then we decided to go out for an Indian meal instead of staying in, and got soaked! SNAP! (Sort of)
    As ever, Pete. X (your ‘like’ isn’t working, I tried…)

        I agree, I just don’t like too many of them. We had cascade effect bad luck weeks consecutively for almost 4 months last year, and then again in July/August with my sister getting a breast cancer dx. I was NEVER so glad to see a year end as I was to see 2012 go bye bye. Will be thinking if you and sending positive thoughts They really do work! Hugs!
