This Post Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds!!!

Her mission: To replace her dead vacuum cleaner before Curry's closes. To track down Dyson Animal to her nearest store. To have it assembled and used before 4pm. She has decided to travel to a town where she NEVER goes.

All she has is her wits, her keen sense of observation and a Girls Aloud CD.

Yes, today...she travelled, she looked, she found, she bought, she vacuumed all by 15.49 hrs. Her Audi drove where it had never driven before, cut across lanes of traffic,all to trade in her dead Vax cleaner for the ultimate cleaning machine. God bless Curry's for their deal. God bless Jason for getting bonus or we would have a REALLY dirty house. The best news of all.....

It's purple.

Woo HOO!!

The Honda has sold!!!! YIPPPPEEEEEE!!!! Thank Goodness that car is out of my hair.

My visit to the dentist was interesting. Eddie's teeth are fine mine however, required x rays and a return visit for "treatment". Now, when your dentist says "treatment" with a devilish grin and a rubbing of hands you start to feel uneasy!!!!! I have had this dentist since I was 8 so I do trust him. The words infection of jaw were used and clean it can't be that bad. We shall see.

Milo has a mission. To kill the hamster at all costs. He will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. We have had to lock him out of Eddie's room because he can't be trusted. The other 2 cats are asleep on the bed oblivious to everything and everyone. I am sure Milo is planning a way of getting that bedroom door open. Hmmmmm......

I sit inside on a cold and damp Octobers day with my heating on and a slushy film on the tv. The pressure has changed and I have a barometer headache made worse by an advert of a talking shoe advertising bingo.

My Honda still has not sold. I am getting desperate I don't understand why not so back to auction Weds, keep everything crossed.

Ed and I have the dentist later and then Ed's parents evening. I am looking forward to my holiday next week as this year has been a bloody nightmare. Illness, bad friends, bad situations. It's time to look at next year and hope it brings better times.

How Shocking

Ed had his usual weekly footie meet today. Sometime in the first half, my friend Claire and I (Hi Claire!) spotted one of our team being taken to his Dad's car. We thought that he was poorly or had been injured. The truth is actually quite shocking.

Our manager had quite reasonably asked the boy to play midfield. However, the lad did not want to play there and wanted to be up front. He started crying on pitch and when our manager asked why he was informed by the boy that it was all his fault and then proceeded to call the manager a twat. Now for our American friends that is NOT a nice word to use even for an adult let alone a child of 10.

When Jase told me about it I was horrified. Our manager is probably the nicest man you will ever meet, plus he is the only one who offered to train and manage the boys, plus how DARE a child speak to anyone like that. If it was Ed I would give him a hiding and ban him from the game until he left home, make him apologise in public and generally take away all privilages. Alas, I fear this child will get away with it because the parents don't care, think its funny and won't do anything. Anyway we won 2-1 after all that.

As to my last post, good chats with my friends (hiya Tina, Claire, Sarah and Wendy) have made me realise that these 2 creatures simply are not worth my time. Their loss, not mine I just hope their girls don't turn out like them.

Facebook is the root of all evil. I have left and returned here where my true friends are. Imagine my hurt when through facebook I find out that a "friend" was too ill to see me but making social engagements with other people and was holding a baby shower and not inviting me. Charming.

So lesson learned and with sadness I cross off another person who decided to take advantage.

I start my new job on 2nd Nov. I am quite looking forward to it, caring is very rewarding and although not everyone would do it, these people do depend on you. I have done my training and have new car will travel!

Ed is waiting for his 11+ results. I think we are more nervous than him because we know how important it is. Fingers crossed it all goes well. I will of course shout the results from this blog when I get them. 20th Nov is the date...very nervewracking.
