I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who reads this blog and for all your kind comments and being so supportive - I've been feeling a bit low lately - but you all cheered me up immensely. So thank you kindly.
Having read quite a few other blogs, it seems that I'm not the only one having a bit trouble at the mo. Maybe it's a lunar thing.......or a mummy thing.
Having popped a few pills, (sadly only Anadin), I'm now as happy as a pig in muck!
Talking of muck - 'Swiss' the student, a tiny slip of a girl, managed to clog up the toilet. So bad it was, it flooded the bathroom floor - which she wiped clean with a towel then threw the sodden thing in the bath and left it to stink for an hour. (I was out with the kids when this happened).
When I came home, 'Swiss' made herself scarce, while I was literally up to my elbow in toilet water trying to unclog the toilet. (I would never, ever, ever be a plumber, a most disgusting job).
I called Olly to come and help me, barking 'Your a small man, you should be doing this'. Hubby was away as usual.
All Olly could do was inform me of the physic's of gravity and the workings of a toilet - which I cant even explain because it went right over my head.
I had a long metal pole, which I had trying to shove down the toilet to clear the blockage.
Olly said, 'You should have something soft and bendy so it goes around the 'u'-bend, so you can poke it clear'.
I am clearly not the mechanical type.
Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! I left it alone. Put a note on the loo - Out of Use.
I then went into the kitchen and all the lights had blown. Could I find a pissing light bulb? No.
Then the latch on the bin broke so when you step on the peddle the lid wouldn't lift, then the kettle wouldn't work - element gone - so I had to boil water for a cuppa in a saucepan, in the dark.
What is wrong with the universe? It is conspiring against everyone at the moment.
But thanks for being there. xxx
