Do you ever feel like banging your head against the steering wheel of your car through sheer frustration at your inability to change your situation and your lack of control over your life? No? Oh, then that must be me then.

Never in a million years did we think we wouldn't be in a house by now. And never did we think that we'd ever be priced out of the Ipswich market! But we have been. We spent the weekend looking at houses that were too expensive and not very nice! I've just spent a good half an hour on the phone with the estate agent discussing the TOO EXPENSIVE house that I thought we'd walked away from but find we just can't. HE believes they've over priced their house and really wants to get it for us, but THEY want to hang on and see if they can find some MUG who's prepared to pay the overinflated price they have it on the market for! GRRRRRRRRRRR BANG BANG OUCH.

Coupled with that I had a BAD day at work. This boy that I seem to have been saddled with kicked off in a big way and I had to get him taken to the withdrawal room, which shook me (as he was throwing things) and shook my confidence with my inability to deal with him and having to recourse to senior staff. GRRRRRRRRRRR BANG BANG OUCH.

I left my car at my sister's last night as we'd been round there for SUnday lunch and to celebrate my neice's 21st (again) and this morning had to walk the girls to schoool and me to work - we all looked like drowned rats. GRRRRRRRRR BANG OUCH.

I just have this urge to go to bed and stay there.

Oh Luce, i'm so sorry. PTB PTB.
Wish I could fix you a nice G&T to help you unwind.

Has the agent told them he thinks its overpriced? if it hangs around for much longer, surely they'll realise....

hope you have a good time tonight

Oh Sweetheart, what a horrid day you've had so far :o{
I hate those kick-off situations. We are always left questioning ourselves and wondering if we could have handled it better.
Try not to take the situation personally - it's not a reflection of you or your capabilities - it just is as it is..... have a nice bath with a G&T and shake it off.

As for the house, lets hope this is a "the darkest hour is just before dawn" situation.

Hugs ~(:o})=

Boy do you need that G&T. I think I'll join you.

Things will get better. They always do. It's just hard to believe that now. We all have really crap days at work - I do, I'm always questioning my ability to handle things.

You made me laugh with your comment over at mine anyway.

Have a relaxing evening without thinking about houses or work.

Oh dear Luce - bad things always come in threes....

Go and play some really VIOLENT tennis tomorrow (if you're not working) and get rid of all your aggro and yes, definitely have a LARGE G&T tonight - if not two!

Wish I was up the road like the old days and wish we could meet for a coffee like we used to my girlfriend :-) I am thinking of you... it will happen...have a better day tomorrow .....think of some funny things, like the day our old friend threw herself into the swimming pool fully clothed, bound to raise a smile... like the time you swerved on the way to bluewater at the car that was coming at us NOT and we had to ask that old chap to put the spare on, like my fish pie... like our book nights were we talked about the book we all read NOT in the last 5 mins....
do you feel better ??

I have had to change my url for various reasons. I thought I'd leave the url here since I think everyone visits you every day, RW:
Will revert back to the other soon hopefully.
Hope you are feeling better today. At least it's sunny!

Dons and GOW: I'm sorry about the blog. It was there and then it wasn't!! I need to take a break from it really. Too much stress at work. It's just a temporary thing, I think. I hope! My head is too dizzy at the mo.

Well, Kitty, I think your head's been turned by a surfeit of bogus's in your house.

Blogger Kitty said...

Sorry RW. Down to one Bogus now and I'm ruthless too for a few days.

Hi RW...
I don't suppose you read The Guardian at weekends by any chance? Only there was a small thing in the mag about moving to Ipswich! Obviously I though of you!

Soon, they are going to do one about moving to Woolwich!

hahahahaha......You've got to laugh! :O)
