Seriously F*cked off

This isnt really the start of a thread just me letting off steam because I am so fed up and have noone to talk to. Not quite sure how much worse things can get for me at the moment, but I am soooooooo Fd off with my life. Here's how yesterday went....

5am up with twins who have been coughing all night and I have been up with them anyway
6am finish mopping up where they have brought their milk back
7am dh staggers down and tells me how tired he is
7.01 stop staring at dh open-mouthed for being an insensitive twat who should remember that he gets 8 solid hours every night and I am lucky to get 3 or 4
7.45 knock at door and there is a woman holding my wing mirror which she has just knocked off.
8am plumber turms up who appears to be distant relative of Frank Spencer and starts off by smashing a vase in the bathroom
9am DFS turn up to deliver a sofa which I waited in for all day yesterday. I give them a right bollocking about it before realising that I don't know what day it is and actually they are on the right day
9.02 twins vomit back their Weetabix
9.15 DFS take sofa away again because it wouldnt fit in through the lounge door
10am plumber finally leaves having failed to fix either of the things I wanted him to do so both toilet and shower are dodgy and I have no idea when he is coming back.
11am arrange christening with snotty vicar who thinks I am a cretin because we have been dithering about dates so long and sighs whenever I speak to him
11.01 dh rings to say we have to change date because his sister is going on holiday
11.02 I tell dh what he and his sister can go and do
12 noon kids howling because hungry but then refuse to eat. Am thinking of now throwing shopping straight in the bin and saving myself the hassle of cooking
2pm argument with Asda over non-arrival of online shopping. Have just had to eat a tin of sweetcorn and a packet of chocolate animals for lunch
3.30 half of the shopping turns up delivered by Frank S's twin
5pm go to DFS to choose a new sofa for the same price and can only find something hideous but choose it anyway. By the time I come out there has been a freaking blizzard and now it is raining hard so I get drenched putting kids back in car.
7pm dh rings to say he will be late
7.01pm twins start howling because they are used to a strict bedtime routine which I cant so on my own so we are all peed off
8.30 dh turns up and kids are almost asleep
8.45 pm Asda turn up with the remaining shopping and wake ds up again
9pm I go to bed and dh gets sulky because he wants to stay up and chat. As if.

So toady I get up thinking it can only get better and end up at the doctors with the twins and apparently they have bronchilitis and we have to hope they dont get any worse or they will have to go into hospital.

Sometimes i just think why me? You know? I am not a bad person, I have never knowingly done anything bad to another person so why does each day bring with it more and more grief?

Oh hun, I'm thinking of you.

Were the chocolate animals at least good?

Just keep those twins warm with some damp towels in the room and hopefully it won't get any worse xx

God the day from hell. You rant away, I did last night and found a few fellow ranters and it was very cathartic(sp).

colditzmum Thu 27-Jan-05 14:26:25

Oh <<<<<<HUGS>>>>>>

Poor you.

That is genuinly a terrible day

Miriam2 Thu 27-Jan-05 14:29:35

Awww...poor you, sounds horrid. But my dear you have a real way with words and you made me laugh!
Hope the twins are better soon and you don't get any more of Frank Spencer's family coming round!

sandyballs Thu 27-Jan-05 14:30:35

Well you've definitely got a good sense of humour to be able to write it down in such an amusing way!! Hope things improve for you.

blotto, have you been living in my life? I'm with you every step of the way.

Hope the DTs don't need hospital and that you get some sleep. Hope Frank and twin vanish from your life and the only delivery men that come in future and sun-kissed love gods who do the job that they are supposed to do and flirt with you a little so that you feel like a sexpot.

As to the DH, I always find a thump in the head good as well as taking myself out for the evening with a girlfriend completely rejuvenating.

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Thu 27-Jan-05 14:40:01

are not and

lucy5 Thu 27-Jan-05 14:41:27

mtmml i couldnt have put it better especially the thumping, infact today a good kick on thin shins is very possible or should that be probable. hahaha.

lucy5 Thu 27-Jan-05 14:42:46

i meant the not thin, must have been a freudian slip as i was thinking about the mars bars that i have been denying myself.

blotto Thu 27-Jan-05 14:43:01

Actually I did the sweetcorn and animals thing for lunch again today as it turned out to be a good comfort food. Rounded off with 2 Milky Bar desserts for extra nutritional goodness. Mmmmmm.

Today is still going downhill as I am being bombarded with pop-up porn on my computer as I am just trying to check my email. Cant help wondering if this happens to everyone or if dh has arranged for "hot tarts" to appear as some sort of attempt at foreplay?

Earlier excitement at receiving a parcel has been pissed on from a great height, as I should have expected. Was expecting some goodies but was in fact a 400 page report from my loving boss who wanted to "keep me in the loop". Yeah right. I am seeing the bastard for lunch next week and basically if I havent memorised every word then he will lecture me on the importance of keeping uptodate with current thinking. Oh joy.

Was going to relax and watch desperate housewives this afternoon now the kids are having a nap but (a) they arent asleep and (b) dh has taped the cricket "highlights" over it. FFS.

woah ! - what a terrible day yesterday!!!!

you still f*ed up? if you are, can someone mind the twins for an hour or two whilst you can relaxed or get some sleep? as whenever i feel like a sleep i get in the bath and relaxed, even if its 15 mins but it does you good


catgirl Thu 27-Jan-05 15:35:35

tape Richard & Judy over the cricket highlights - that'll teach him

HunkerMunker Thu 27-Jan-05 15:50:52

Oh hun - what a day! Definitely second taping R&J over cricket.

Big fat hugs to you (but can I confess I thought it was funny you chose to have sweetcorn and chocolate animals for lunch again?) xxxxxx
