Thank you for your kind words. I am not a moaner in rl and it was very cathartic writing down.

That does sound like a spectacularly crap week. Hope next week is much better for you.

Wow what a lot of horrid things to be dealing with at once you poor thing.

hugs here too. Sounds like you are having an epically shite time and you have my massive sympathy.

Not so much after advice but more needing a place to write this down. I have 4 dc's (7,5,2.8,12weeks). It is half term week and we have had a shit week. Tbh it has been pretty crappy since dd2 was born. The day I went into labour my ds2 got a tummy bug and puked all over the inside of the car just as we were leaving on the school run. That pretty much sums up how the last 3 months have been. All dc's had the tummy bug, then full on flu over Christmas and now the 3 youngest are full of cold again. We are supposed to be moving house in a month so trying to save as much as possible as it is going to cost a lot but on the day we had the offer accepted my dh found out his contract won't be renewed. This isn't a huge deal as he is a contractor and has already lined something up but it would have given me peace of mind if he had another six months.
On Tuesday my car broke down whilst I had my 4 kids in it and my 2 nephews. It will be fixed tomorrow but means we have been stuck in all week and our current house is too small for it to be pleasant. With two poorly little ones it's been too cold to even go to the park and we could really have done without the £500 bill. Add another £450 for a new washing machine as ours broke and we are doing a piss poor job of saving.

My dc's are all lovely but my ds2 is being very challenging right now. The baby doesn't sleep for more than 25 mins at a time in the day (thankfully good at night) so he is suffering from lack of attention and I get absolutely nothing done so the house is a tip.

To top it all off I took my poor little dog to the vets this morning. We thought he had an infection but turns out it is cancer and all we can do is make him comfortable. I am gutted.
I have had enough but ultimately that's just tough and we just have to get on with things.
Sorry for the epic me post but feel free to have your own whinge x
