Insult to Injury!!

Well its happened Paulie has def got MAN FLU....bloody hell, its like living with the hole collection of Mr Men, we have Mr Sneeze, Mr Cough, Mr Aches n Pains and not forgetting Mr Moan and Mr I Feel sorry for

I had not made me mind up about the new job, that was till I got to work and me boss had a word with me, says he can not do anything about the money and not a lot about me hours really....

After a fews hours thinking about it I went back into his office and broke the news that I was going to leave, he asked a few questions and tried to make me stay and in the end asked me to order some rope....why me asks...for one to tie you to your chair so you carnt leave and the other is for if you do escape then he could hang

I rang the other company and told them I would accept the job and that I would give me notice in when I had received the letter from them confirming it.....

One of me workies has had words with me boss and told them he is breaking up a very happy well run ship, me boss told her, he is doing all he can to change the situation...The only problem is I really do like me job but I have got to think about my future and not me bosses......

Time to go and see if the unwell needs his head mopping with a wet flannel or something to that this moment in time I could hit him with a very large slimey

After a very chilled nite of me and Paulie propper cuddling on the sofa, we got up this morning all fresh and ready to go, we started with the usual sunday breakfast, followed by the usual washing and pegging out, then we were propper good and cleaned both cars inside and out, they are now lemonie fresh and

This afternoon we had a ride to our local garden centre for some parrot food and had a look at the fish tanks, when we move house, hopefully to a bigger one we are going to set a tropical tank up then with all neons and nice glowing fishes....

On the way home Paulie had a silly look on his face, when I asked what was wrong, he gave me the most sorrowfull look and said....I think I have replies OH NO....NOT MAN he sat on the sofa sniffleing his head off and looking very sorry for lets see how many days he takes off work this

What to do??

On monday nite I was invited to an interview with a friend I use to work with, Im not looking for a new job but I must have been interested or I would not have gone.......

We are having major problems at work with things being done wrong etc and yesterday was called into a very heated meeting, when we finally got out I could have cried as I work my arse off for this company.

Next came the phone call offering me the other job, more money, less stress and less hours, I went in to see me boss and told him what had happened, it got a bit heated in parts and he told me that I was fantastic and he did not want me to go, me just said well you know what I want, he is speaking to the powers that be!!

So this weekend Ive got to make a choice which is difficult as me dont know what me boss is going to come back with on monday.

When I got home last nite after crawing through loadsa traffic, Paulie was waiting with a very Large Vodkkka n coke for me and we had pizza, which was very hot and spicey and nearly blew me mouth off, you could see us both doing the mime of HOT HOT HOT Lucy loved it, mind you I dont think it touched the sides

Paulie is now making breakfast of sausages & bacon etc and Eric is attacking me legs and anything else of can get hold of with his needle claws, we are in no hurry for getting ready for a fun filled

The loyal wife

There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miserwhen it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife,
When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."

And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him.

Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her.

When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a minute!" She had a box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away.

So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband." The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm an honest loyal wife, I can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."

"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!!?"

"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a cheque. If he can cash it, he can spend it."

Dark Mornings

Not sure why, but when its dark in the morning I think your body clock just wont start ticking, this morning mine had stopped

The alarm was moaning and groaning again and Paulie reached over and put it on snooze, which give us another 10 mins, mind you I did not hear it go off the first time, then it set off again and Im sure it gets louder to make sure you dont over

We both got out of bed and stumbled to the bathroom, Paulie went to iron a shirt for work and I took lucy to the back yard for a wee, she was propper still asleep cause when she had finished she did not move for a min and looked at me as if to say "Really, I can not be arsed"

As we came back indoors there was the usual chorus of meaows from the three amigos, not one of them in bloody I put biccies in each bowl and they all swapped to see who had the best, cheeky

Shower time again, its like bloody Ground Hog Day, roll on Friday, it must be bad Im not usually saying it till Wednesday nite and just looked at the date and its only Tuesday!!

After doing the usual of making butties, getting bags right, with the usual stuff in mine - purse, mobile, keys, ciggies, lighter, glasses two lots, sun and reading glasses and not forgetting Paulies credit it was off to work. First I hit a fence and had all white paint on me bumper then pulling on to the main road just missed a car heading right for me....

Got to the bus stop to pick Baby Ben up and hey ho, not a surprise here but NO BEN, so I drove off and thought to meself, this is it the final straw, no more lifts.....

Propper shit day at work again, followed by coming out of work late to be told again, that me car will be clamped, I can not put in here what I said, I will leave that one for you to make your own dropped another work collegue off at home and drove the rest of the way listening to some mega songs on the radio.....

Paulie had tea already for when I got in, aint me a lucky girl! Now wait for the surprise of what we had.....................................Stir Fried Beefburger!! must say it was rather nice, Im not sure were he gets his ideas from but sometimes they aint half

Now its chill time and we are not having our usual cardi and coke, as we have run out of coke we are having cardi and Fruit Burst just gets more and more wacky in this house!!

Its never rains, its just pours!!

Theres always one to rock the boat!! Posted by Hello


After an eventfull morning yesterday, we setttled down to some blogging then started to watch Sleepy Hollow, within mins of the film starting I did me usual trick of falling asleep on the sofa...yikes...not again...

Paulie woke me up at 5.30pm as we were going out with friends for a meal, it was our turn to drive and pick them up, as Ive drove for the last 5 times it was Paulie turn, I even let him drive me Baby

We got the directions to our friends and arrived to a lovely sunset, as we opened the front door to get back into the car, the heavens had opened with bloody rain me,Lisa,Dan and Paulie ran to the car, we got bloody

We went to this pub that does Two for One meals, we started off with a combo of wedges, onion rings, garlic bread and some other yummy stuff, then we all orders mixed grills which non of us could finish and ended up bringing Lucy a doggy bag home, she has had some this morning, but there is loads still in the fridge for her....

All in all it was a fantastic nite and we are both still in our PJs this morning with no intention of making a move to get in the shower and getting a move

It’s all gone like clockwork :-) We all sat down and chose the colours and the style and covered every ickle detail while Paulie nodded off in the corner We have been measured and will be going back again next month.

Just as we were about done, the lady brought out some material she had just remembered and I’m not saying anything except that my Wedding Dress is going to be beautiful!

Horrible Day

Today Ive been to the hospital for a scan and I wish Id known what exactly this involved then I wouldnt have gone on me own. Paulie did offer to come with me but I thought I would be ok, after all it was only a scan.

When I got there I had to drink loadsa glasses of milky water which really made me want to be sick. After that I had to drink loads of normal water by the time I was finished I was dying for a

Then the nurse comes at me with this huge needle and sticks that in me arm, which injects dye,I had to hold me hands behind me head which was a real strain on me ickle arms, plus the needle was digging in...ouch...

They started the machine for a dummy run which was scary enough lying there feeling sick after all the fluid Id had. Then they started the dye working and all the nurses left the room and they started the machine for real and the lights started flashing all around me, and I had a propper burning feeling inside me while trying to hold me breath all in one go. I have never been so scared in all me life.

Leaving the hospital I had to drive all the way back to work because we are really busy and cant have any time off. I was only at work two hours before it was time to come home but it seemed to last forever.

I was so glad to arrive home and flop into Paulies waiting arms as I shed some tears and told him the whole horrible story.

I’m chilling now with a nice cold glass of vodka and coke hoping I don’t have nightmares tonight about a horrible, horrible day.
