I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I wrote anything on here, 2 FUCKING years.
I don’t even know if I can remember everything that has happened over the last 2 years, I can remember that I have just written about 2000 words approx an hour ago and that I pressed the wrong fucking button and lost it all, so here I go again GRRRRRRRR.
Just a few updates about the family.
No more grandchildren have arrived (sad, but acceptable of my children’s decisions), the 3 we have got are all getting older (sad face), the eldest is nearly 5 and the babies are 3 this year.
The Son is still a non-smoker and has also stopped vaping (sooooo proud of him)
The daughter is still a single mum but is loving every minute of it (apart from the tantrums, terrible two’s)
The daughter-in-law is still coping with the Son’s wild & wonderful ideas (she deserves a bloody medal)
The Husband was made redundant back in 2017 and started a new job straight away (I let him have the weekend off)
We are still in the EU (roll on March 29th), I could go into a massive rant about this but to be honest I can’t be arsed, suffice to say I STILL WANT OUT BUT UR GOVERNMENT ARE BEING TOTAL FUCKTARDS.
So now to the reason I have decided to update this blog, my Husband asked me the other day why I hadn’t written anything for a while, as now I had more free time, it should be easier. Well yes, he has a very valid point, if you read my last post, at the very end I said that I wanted to cut my hours in work (60 a week), I finally achieved this in October last year, not only did I cut my hours to 37.5 but I also got myself a 2k pay rise and ALL bank holidays off, I am still working in the same building which was always my aim but I am doing something totally different yet strangely the same. I can honestly say that it is a pleasure to be tired from actually working than from being bored. My brain became mush whilst doing my old job but over the last 3 months it has fired back up and is loving ever minute of it. I am still not used to having more time at home, I find myself just sitting and thinking I should be doing something but by the time I realise that I can actually do what I want then it’s time for bed. I may not have got used to the free time yet but I have certainly got used to having more money in my bank (shopping spree’s for the win).
I am still a non-smoker but my health has deteriorated since stopping as I have had a significant weight gain, but hey, I’m not super woman, I can only give up one thing at a time (carbs & sugar next). I am also hoping to cut down on the vaping, but by the time I write my next post (according to the current trend) it’ll probably be all over and done with (raises eyebrows).
My Husband continues to be the most loving, awesome, generous man I have ever met, as I mentioned earlier, he was made redundant back in 2017 and out of his redundancy money he bought me a car which was to my exact specifications (yellow, fast, quirky and fun). My car is now officially the “family car” for outings with the grandchildren or for when we go on trips, why you may ask, well the reason is quite simple, my Husband traded in his large car for a smaller one, now I’m not complaining, but, he bought a bloody Mini (not a BMW), not wanting to upset him or hurt his feelings I had to tell him the truth, I hate Mini’s, he is well aware now that I will never drive his (wannabe BMW) car, hell I don’t even like being a passenger in it, that being said, the most important thing is that he loves it and is happy with it, and as a good Wife, that’s all that matters.
Talking of the Husband, we have been together just over 8 years and I love him more and more each day, BUT, his latest way of thinking is beginning to worry me a little, I’ll give you an example, this morning he was relaying an article he’d been reading regarding how eating fried chicken daily could cause premature death, now this in itself is concerning, but what he said next has put me on my guard, he asked me if we could have a KFC for tea, CHILDREN I have not made a will yet.
This post is just to catch you all up with my life, watch this space for more in-depth thoughts and feelings (don’t hold your breath), I’ll leave you with the meme below for you to ponder on, until next time, (blows kiss).
