Has it really been over a week since I posted something????
'SLACKER', I hear you cry! Yup. Slack, slack slack!
These past few weeks have been so busy my head is spinning.
Finally, all four students have gone back home. Phew!
I shall be glad not to cook dinner for NINE people anymore and also elated that I don't have to make anymore sandwiches for lunch!
It was like a flipping factory production line; SIX sets of lunches everyday for the last SIX weeks. I am so sick of sandwiches. If I never see another sandwich again I shall die a happy woman!
Espania, our Spanish student, left in a torrent of emotional tears, blubbing all over the place she was, and was finally whisked off to the airport in an Executive Car complete with Chauffeur and Escort.
It was a simple affair with the other three; they left quietly on Monday via 'coach' class.
This summer has hardly been a barrel of laughs with the students, (understatement of the year!), so I think it is time to bow out, perhaps.
Liam, my 23 year old, who descended upon us a couple of weeks ago, has been camping out in Olly's room. He has decided to stay at home for the foreseeable future (no doubt because he is skint and homeless), but I don't care, its lovely to have him back.
I can hardly contain my happiness......... he has split with Rhino for good!
That bird was one sandwich short of picnic, and all his mates where telling him she had a couple of screws loose! Still, its over now. Thank the heavens.
I took Liam to get his eyes checked because he cannot see the TV when sitting on the sofa! He has to sit on the floor with his face up right against the telly.
Needless to say, he is as blind as a bat. If a perfect vision is equal to 200, Liam's vision is 20. That means to say he only has 10% vision!
Could explain why he fell for Rhino, not being able to see her properly. Anyway, he gets his glasses on Friday.
We have also sorted him out a Multi-room Sky box, which is apparently taking 3 MONTHS to be delivered. 3 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What's that about????
Amber and Olly have finally broken up for the hols and about time. They were ready to drop. It has been an extremely difficult time with Olly, and I mean really difficult. But I wont go there for the time being.
On a much lighter note, Brighton has its Gay Pride Parade on 1st August. Although the London Parade is much better, I always try to go to the Brighton one, to show my support and to have a good look at the dresses and costumes or lack of them! Its so much fun.
The three poofs that live across the road are having a party on Friday night to celebrate the Parade and they invited me over.
(I know its not politically correct, but I just love that word 'poof'. It reminds me of when I used to blow on a dandelion as a kid, 'Pooooff!').
One of them said, 'Oh, you'll be shocked at what you see at our party!'.
Me: Why will I be shocked?
Him: Well, you wont have been to party like ours before, all the 'dragging up' and things we get up to!
Me: I was going to ask you if you had any drag queens going, tends to spice up a party......
He looked at me quizzically.
Apparently appearances can be deceptive. Of course, I've never been to a gay/drag party before, because I am a suburban housewife married with kids and I have ALWAYS been a suburban housewife married with kids, and not led any kind of other life at all!!!
Best not mention going to G A Y at the Astoria in London, or having a girlfriend, or having a rock star as a boyfriend, or seeing copious amounts of drugs laid out tables for all to sniff or casinos, or gangsters or millionaires...........enough said. I am a suburban housewife, best not burst his bubble.
He then proceeded to inform me of his sexual antics with strangers in bushes and how, when it came to the crunch, he couldn't do it!
This, of course, was intended to shock, but I burst out laughing. I told him he wasn't as outgoing as he thought he was and maybe he preferred his home comforts instead!
So, this is another snippet in my woefully dull life of 4 students, 3 poofs and a sodding sandwich!
