DD (2.8) didn't sleep last night, so neither did I, and has been a pain in the arse all day. Constant whinging no matter what we do. She also refused to nap today.

I had to go to the supermarket for something for tea wine and biscuits but my primarni furry boots are still wet and my wellies have split. Converse do not make good ice shoes and I fell on my arse. It hurt and DD and her friend (also 2) laughed so hard they fell over, then they cried all the way to the shop.

I dropped on of my gloves in a sludgy puddle so my hands were cold.

I wanted to get some invoicing and cleaning done today but DD was being a pain in the arse and refusing to nap so I've got nothing done. Now working 7am - 6pm tomorrow and the house is a shit hole.

DH came home and complained there was nothing for tea and was offended when I told him to go to the pissing shops himself and then cook something. I have crisps and sour cream for tea.

My eyes feel dry and sore so can't wear my contact lenses so I have scratch puffy eyes and shit glasses.

Hope you are feeling better soon OP.

And I can't fucking type. It should be one of my gloves dropped.

And DD is still fucking whinging, now because Daddy is reading the wrong bedtime story she chose

I haven't slept through the night for weeks. I am in constant pain and eating Tramadol like Smarties. I am, therefore, off my fucking head and unable to string a sentence together. I have to have another pissing MRI next week all because I have a hideous pain where my gallbladder used to be.
I am with you on the snow thing - funny for the first 12 hours, distinctly unamusing thereafter.
Oh yes, and I am so constipated that I look like a dead sheep. Feel like one too.

Apart from that it's all sunshine, bunny rabbits and rainbows grin

DH has been unable to do the drop off to Breakfast club this week due to work. I have therefore had to do the drop offs which has involved getting two uncooperative children by the front door for half 7, having to defrost the car and getting them to school for exactly 7.45 so I can dash to the station for the train, work and then do the reverse at pick up time at after school club, DH is not home until 7.30 so I am then resentfully doing all the cooking, washing, bathing and bed time crap. I hate, hate this time of day.

And the stupid cow I work with spends more time gossiping around the office than doing her job which leaves me picking up the pieces. Had a very cathartic rant about it to my boss today after she had a go at me for making a mistake which I only did because the stupid cow person had told me something incorrectly but then denied it.

And breath.

I am feeling extremely rotten. I haven't felt human since Friday morning. I've had to change the sheets on my bed every morning because I have sweat so much. I just feel like shit <weeps>

I've got to go in to work tomorrow though. I've had two days off and I can't have another I've got so much to do. Plus I stumbled across an advert for my position, so I know that my contract is not beig extended.

Fuck the world.

MN044 Thu 24-Jan-13 19:17:14

All 3 dc are ill and I haven't been out of my house for a week. We have a half foot of snow going to waste in the back garden that will be melted by the time they're ok. I've been debating doing an internet shop every single night then thinking, 'nah, they'll definately be better tomorrow so I can go to the shop. Nope. And now I'm out of coffee. Ds2 wakes up every 3 hours like clockwork. Gah.

CheCazzo Thu 24-Jan-13 19:19:30

Out of coffee? Gah - that's bad. grin I feel for you!

PoppyWearer Thu 24-Jan-13 19:22:28

I rolled the buggy through some dog shit on the school run this morning, but didn't realise until I had folded up the buggy board, by which time it was on my suede gloves and also my coat. <boak>


Also sick DC here. Thank fuck I'm not doing detox January, need a few wine tonight!

MN044 Thu 24-Jan-13 19:23:22

I've been eeking out the last granules. But now it's gone. All the corner shop have are crappy own brand. And I'm massively paranoid to the extent I could never leave the dc here anyway. So tomorrow I'm not only dealing with 3 sick dc, I'm also going to be on a massive caffine comedown. Send backup.

gemdrop84 Thu 24-Jan-13 19:23:55

41 wks pg with dc2 and fed up!! Had twinges all week, stopping and starting, it's driving me up the wall!! And don't get me started on the's cleared here after a pretty heavy lot last week and been a complete arse ache (quite literally in my case) walking dd to nursery, apparently it's going to be back quite heavily tomorrow sad Please, someone, anyone, have a large wine for me.....

Pascha Thu 24-Jan-13 19:27:01

I can't get DS2 to settle long enough for me to put him down so I can have a bath. Soon as I stop bouncing he wakes and screams.

maddening Thu 24-Jan-13 19:28:47

My df came home and rowed with me as he is v stressed with work - he quckly apologised though.

Had to do a mad dash in rush hour traffic to get to an appointment with a surgeon about my hernia - also have a cold which appears to be turning into an ear and throat infection - now my left ear hurts and is whistling and my throat is agony sad

Df and ds also have a cold and ds appears to be teething his back molars and is waking more at night.

In the grand scheme of things not awful but I fucking well feel like shit and am feeling sorry for myself smile

TallyGrenshall Thu 24-Jan-13 19:31:53

I'm another one eating Tramadol like smarties but with the added bonus that they make me hurl my guts up so it's either be in pain or puking.

I am hacked off that my back is still fucked since it first went into spasm on boxing fucking day. My house is a shit-hole because OH is incapable of washing up until everything single item of cutlery has been used apparently.

I haven't slept properly since then and I haven't been to work since then and only get SSP. DS's birthday is in 3 weeks, my nephews 18th is in 3 weeks, I have my sister's hen holiday to pay for in 8 weeks, plus by stuff to actually wear but if I drop out, I will still have to fucking pay for it.

Managed to hobble round Tesco's today with my Mother and how we both got out alive is a mystery. Stupid fucking questions the whole way round when I had told her I wanted to get something for tonight and then get home before I fell over

DeckSwabber Thu 24-Jan-13 19:32:13

Mine is a work rant so I won't bore you with the details. Rant Rant Rant.

EmpireBiscuit Thu 24-Jan-13 19:34:38

gemdrop you have my sympathies. Also 41 weeks and fecked of completely with the whole thing!

CheCazzo Thu 24-Jan-13 19:43:25

Sounds like shit Tally. I do not for the life of me understand why some people take Tramadol for fun. Why? Why would you do that? grin Puke up, stagger round in a daze, never have a crap. And that's fun?

TallyGrenshall Thu 24-Jan-13 19:46:35

Che Exactly! How is this fun for anybody?! I sat for half a sodding hour this morning trying to have a poo blush and nothing!

Samnella Thu 24-Jan-13 19:53:37

gemdrop84 you have my full sympathy. Last stages let alone overdue last stages are hideous.

TheDemonShedMaster Thu 24-Jan-13 19:57:37

Am nearly in tears at present. Have just moved out of the flat from hell. In preparing to do so, we went to retrieve items from the outbuilding which we were actively ENCOURAGED to use for storage, only to find that (since July) everything has rotted, gone mouldy or disintegrated. Our household insurance will not cover it. Our landlord is offering £300 as a "good will" gesture. That will not even begin to cover replacing what is ruined, not to mention the cost of dumping said items. We are now so broke, it's just not funny.

TerracottaPie Thu 24-Jan-13 20:03:07

The only thing I have to rant about is my exH.

This week there has been a lot to rant about.


1) The lack of bathing the DCs (that must be my job)

2) The lack of feeding them properly (that must be my job)

3) The lack of doing any reading or spellings with them (again, my job obviously)

4) The lack of any ability to work out when they are not actually ill and therefore pulling a fast one (my job)

5) And the lack of being able to tell me that my children are not at school (refer back to number 4) after his night with them so that I don't just turn up at school to collect them. (don't think that one should be my job, unless being psychic is my job)

I'm sure I could go on. And on.

LaQueen Thu 24-Jan-13 20:05:54

DH home in a grump.

He's put hours and hours of effort and time into a business project...and, now because of some idiotic, stupid, disorganised bint, who is just trying to disguise her own ineptness - his project is hanging by a thread, and all that effort/time wasted.

It's so unfair sad

3monkeys3 Thu 24-Jan-13 20:13:53

I am onto my 4th illness since I came down with the norovirus on Christmas Eve - this time a coughy coldy thing with a temperature - all 3 dc also have it. Dh - aka mr immune - does not have it, but is in a grump because he had to come home at lunchtime to help me and had to cook the supper, which nobody ate because we're all ill. I also hate snow and wish it would fuck off. And I have a huge, disgusting cold sore - the most horrible one I've ever had - which looks rank and means I can't kiss my dc.

Ullena Thu 24-Jan-13 21:20:48

Decided to kickstart my new year by getting out and socialising, as I never seem to go anywhere without DH. I do have a bunch of friends, just never seem to hang out unless as a couple, iyswim!

Posted on Hellbook to see if anyone fancied a night out sometime. Two people replied: DH and DBIL, offering to take DH to the cinema/clubbing so he wouldn't feel left out...

Greymalken Thu 24-Jan-13 21:47:23

Ullena I humbly apologize I didn't intend to thread jack..... I apologize.

Ullena Thu 24-Jan-13 21:49:27

Scram, you varmint!


JudgeJodie Thu 24-Jan-13 22:17:16

Someone drove straight through a give way junction into my path when I had the kids in the car sad
No one hurt though so grin
But a ball ache to get sorted out and be without my car angry

HollyBerryBush Thu 24-Jan-13 22:23:35

Not going into detail.

Suffice to say in both a professional and parental capacity I have had far too many dealings with the police lately.

I have come to the conclusion there is no selection process at all. There are brain cells missing. there are some egocentric idiots.

Above all, they are undoubttedly rude, uneducated, totally oblivious to disabilities, did I mention rude? uneducated? and yes, absolutely fuckwitted.

OneHundredSecondsofSolitude Thu 24-Jan-13 22:29:32

There's too much to do and not enough time

And I'm broody sad

I am sick. Again. I've been sick for roughly 80% of the last three months, including over Christmas and New Year. On top of that, I've been snowed in all week, it feels like forever since I visited my family and I need my muuuum. But she's sick too.

Oh, and playgroup probably won't be on due to the fecking snow, so that's our only visit to MIL scuppered. DS won't even come and build a snowman with me because he's grumpy and post-viral. sad

I was doing so well in getting back on track and then everything went wrong again. Can't I even have a week when nothing shit happens? angry

Numbthumbs Fri 25-Jan-13 00:40:30

I am also nearly a week overdue with DC2, have bloody fecking piles and cant sleep sad i want to cry, in fact i will cry.

Chottie Fri 25-Jan-13 02:55:40

I woke up dreaming of work (again)
I have a headache, a back ache and dry, sore eyes.

But it is FRIDAY smile so there is some justice in the world

ripsishere Fri 25-Jan-13 03:09:31

My whines are all first world problems so nothing as awful as some of these.
The 'lads' upstairs woke me up at 05.30 singing all the single ladies.
DD is having a hard time at school sad
I can't find a health insurer to take my money. Me and DD are currently not covered at all and, the one I've chosen Allianz seem unable to answer their phone. This means, I must collect DD from school, have lunch with her and DH who has to be there all bloody day thanks to ineptitude of SMT, then drive in KL to visit the offices.
That's about it really, so nothing like some people are experiencing.

Hegsy Fri 25-Jan-13 03:11:54

I have been ill for 4 weeks, started with a cold, horrid cough for 2 weeks then.another cold rounded up with an inner ear infection this week. I hate being ill.

I just want to be pregnant now! My body is shit and failing all round and my husband is snoring in my ear

Isthisavailable Fri 25-Jan-13 04:09:21

My younger sister had her 2nd baby yesterday.. Happened to be my 37th birthday. Kinda a nice present for me, except I don't have any kids and don't know if I will ever feel able to. My cousin (also younger) has her 1st baby recently, so I'm feeling like more and more of a failure and family members are beginning to comment on my lack of kids.
I try to be a good Aunty. My 5 year old niece thinks I can make anything... Crochet fairy tree houses and ballrooms for dolls with dollhouse lights in them. I still feel like an effing useless idiot.
I agreed to come to Surrey from London to look after my niece while sister was in labour. Our mum stayed with sister during labour.
Due to timing I ended up rescheduling a meeting that is important for my future... But I shrugged it off as I thought 'oh well, I shouldn't have booked it so close to her due date''. She ended up being one week overdue.
My Mum is being an a**e to me though. She complained my partner isn't doing enough to help with my niece. I told her the only reason we could both come down and look after her was because he can work anywhere as long as he has a phone and Internet connection.... And that most sisters and sister's partners wouldn't be able to do this. My sister's labour took about 2 days! So I was comforting my niece and slept with her in my Mum's bed while my partner slept in spare room. My Mum said most people would take days off sick to help!!! I told her they wouldn't. But my Mum hasn't worked for about 30 years and she hasn't got a clue.
She doesn't think anything in my life is important I suppose and I have to grow a pair and prioritise my own stuff.
My mum looks after my niece a lot and for years she would ask/ expect me to do stuff for her because she was busy looking after my niece. Eventually I realised and said 'it wasn't me who had a baby and made you look after it.'
She hasn't got a life of her own at all. No job, not one date since my parents divorced over 10 years ago when she was about 46 years old.
She 'helps' my sister have babies and buys her way into forcing her opinion on my sister. My sister complained bitterly to me in the past about our mum telling her what to do with her daughter... I told my sister (gently) that if she didn't want our Mum's opinion maybe she shouldn't let/ask her to do so much.
I'm happy my lovely nephew was born on my birthday safely and my sister is happy. But my life feels shit. On the way to the hospital to see him for the first time my mum was having digs at how shit my partner is and how he doesn't support me enough. I think if she says it again I'll tell her to look in the f***ing mirror.

Isthisavailable Fri 25-Jan-13 04:19:33

Hegsy, Vitamin C is a wonderful cure for this...
Put a load of oranges in a sock or pillowcase and clump him with it.

Isthisavailable Fri 25-Jan-13 04:25:39

It's 4.22 as a type and after reading your post I am singing 'single ladies' in my head. I'll let you know how I'm doing in an hours time. I expect I might have looked up all the lyrics so I can sing more than one line. Must stave off insanity.

Isthisavailable Fri 25-Jan-13 04:28:17

Hey! We can type 'fuck' and our posts are still allowed?!?
If only I'd known earlier.

TallyGrenshall Fri 25-Jan-13 04:39:30

Look at the fucking time!

I should be asleep, but noooooo, I'm awake, I hurt but I can only take some bloody ibuprofen because if I take anything else, I won't be in a fit state to drive DS to school :/

I know it's technically Friday now, but I wanted to add that to my rant as well grin

CheCazzo Fri 25-Jan-13 04:48:51

grin me too Tally - and isn't it remarkable what unutterable shite is in telly at 4am. Oh well - will have to grab a kip later when everyone's at work. <<<reaches for the Tramadol>>>

SureFineWhatever Fri 25-Jan-13 04:49:24

Dd1 up all night last night with killer tooth gum explosion extraordinaire. DH conveniently snored right through it.

It is also far too hot (am in Australia).

Cleaned the kitchen floors this morning. Less than two hours later a box of cocoa mysteriously fell out of the pantry and spilled all over lovely clean floor.

First batch of cookies made this morning rose too much and stuck together in a giant hazelnut chocolate blob. Second batch burnt a bit.

Am tapering down from a high dose of sertraline very very slowly but still feel atrocious. Head zaps, vertigo, nausea, tummy ache.

I fancy Robson Green, and everyone on MN hates him and calls him an ugly little ferret <pouts> and mocks me for luffing him.

Also have used too much internet this month so it is running slow while loading pictures of Robson Green


It's been closed for a week.

I love my children - they're brilliant & all that.

Don't actually want to spend any time with them though....

'Rip' - at least you get cheap fags. I haven't bought Marlborough for six years - £9 for 20, that's £9.00 FOR 20, I got a pack of 20 in my Christmas Stocking.

I enjoyed them immensely.

AltinkumATEalltheTurkey Fri 25-Jan-13 06:15:07
