All sweetness and light, tra-la


I'm fed up with being crabby, so I'm making a determined effort to NOT be. At least for today. My children will be very relieved.

I had a shocking night's sleep, and didn't appreciate being woken by my 15-year-old clattering in the kitchen at 6:15am. Did I yell? Nope...just had an extra shot of caffeine.

The construction manager got held up and didn't show for our meeting. The meeting that I'd ORGANISED TIME OFF WORK ESPECIALLY TO ATTEND. Did I get grouchy? Nuh-uh. I just decided that was a good excuse to take the entire day off from work - I can go meet him when he finally gets there later, meanwhile I get to do stuff around the house that I'd otherwise be rushing through later tonight, and I might even manage a nana nap too.

How's that for putting a positive spin on things?

Oooh, one other thing to add to the list re the Colourbond Ironstone...
now..being responsible in my role for marketing communications..for COLORBOND... we take issue when people spell our brand incorrectly - because then they can easily pass off 'inferior' imported painted steel as the same thing - they get around it by the misspelling, saying, it's a generic term! eeeeeek!
go girl :-)

I can't believe the shit you're dealing with at the moment and the fact that you haven't been commited or commited yourself to the looney bin.

I think you're doing great to be managing as well as you are even though at times you might not think you are.

Hang in there. One day you might just look back and laugh at all this. You can live in hope anyway can't you?

Hope it all gets sorted soon. Thinking of you each and every day.
