Moving House

We’re moving! The removals van comes tomorrow to move us into our new house. We can’t wait!

It’s been hectic here for the past week. Everything’s had to be packed and boxed. And to cap it all off, us and our hubby both have a nasty flu bug.

We’re going to be without internet for a week or so, so please don’t worry if you don’t hear from us. We’ll be back as soon as we can. Believe me, being without the net is giving us cold sweats already 😦

Wish us luck!

Christmas Fail 2012

Every year, something goes wrong at Christmas. We’ve had the car broken into, the heating fail, but this year takes the prize for the biggest, most epic fuck-up of all time. Really.

The ceiling in one of the bedrooms collapsed. On top of Big T, our 15 year old son.

First we knew was lying in bed, and hearing this immense rumbling sound, then loud crashing, followed a split second later by the screaming of Big T as he crashed his way out of the room and into the bathroom. I tell you, nothing makes a Mum move so fast as her child screaming in terror.

Poor kid was covered in slime and crap that had fallen all over him, and coughing and spitting out more crap. Luckily, praise the goddess, he’s not badly hurt, just scraped up on his arms. It could have been so much worse, but he was sitting at his desk and not lying in bed. We can’t even go there about how bad it would have been if he’d been lying down. *shudder*

So now one of our bedrooms is unuseable. The whole damn ceiling fell down, and it’s open to the roof tiles. Which leak. And of course, it’s pissing down rain. Oh joy.

The clean-up was horrible, the crap and the slime and the dust and chunks of plasterboard were everywhere. We were dragging his computer and telly out when a big chunk of wood fell down and narrowly missed our head. There is stuff all over the landing, and it’s a struggle to move up there. Pete, our hubby, has put a sheet of plastic up in the loft, over the hole, to try and catch the rainwater so it doesn’t come flooding in and take out the floor as well.

So, a very Merry Christmas to you all, and a Blessed Yule.

We are so damn tired.

This is getting ridiculous. I know we’re on a multitude of meds that cause drowsiness, but this is on and beyond. This is the diabetes kicking us in the head. We’ve only been awake for 11 hours, and already we’re struggling to focus the eyes. Reclining the chair and taking a nap sounds so snuggly right about now. Body agrees, and is making sure we know about it!

We’re hungry too, but nobody’s got the energy to get up and cook.

Paul’s just taken the kids to Nanna’s, so we’re trying to stay awake till he comes home. Then, it’s off to bed for us. Bugger the fact that it’ll only be about 4pm. We’ve been up since 4am and we’re fucked.

And now the dog’s sitting on the back of our chair/on the windowledge, and howling his head off because Paul’s gone out without him. *sigh*

Funny how everything’s an irritant when you’re shattered, isn’t it? *grumble*
