No, I don't get baby sitting, I'm a single mum with four kids and no family.

We used to find our friends would babysit.

Not an option for me tbh, Miffi.  I had four in five years and lived in the middle of nowhere at the time, so to see friends/use them as babysitting required and hour's round trip minimum.  Besides, after I left my husband the 'friends' thinned out somewhat   I didn't ever mind anyway really, I think I went out three times in about 6 years and two of those were work leaving do's!  I always found stuff to occupy myself and as the kids got older and started staying up later, I had plenty of company - sometimes a bit too much!

Not an option for us either.  Little C asked about a month ago what a babysitter was!

why the **** would anyone think Frankie and Benny's was a good venue for a kids football team presentation  - if i want to eat crap i'll go to McDonalds at least that would be cheap.

you cant take every Wednesday morning off for a bike ride and still claim loads of extra holidays as flexitime when you dont get in til 9 and leave at 4 - working at home my arse.

Dear woman at the gym,

Thanks for the not one, but two smiles yesterday. Really did make my evening once again.

And also for so ably demonstrating the tensile capabilities of lycra. Although I did have to concentrate on my reps and I kind of lost count. So if you could do what you do between what I have to do, so we're kind of synchronised, that would be very much appreciated.

I also think sometimes its better for the kids to be in a supervised playscheme on holidays. They want to play with other kids anyway and IMHO don't always want to be around their parents.

 

I found holidays with my parents really boring when I was a kid.  I would have LOVED being in a kids club or something where there were other children to play with.

I was the same, Wilkie as I was an only child until my teens (and babies aren't much fun when you're more interested in music/boys/smoking.  That's one of the reasons I suppose I went to extra lengths to make sure family holidays were packed with 'stuff'.  Don't get me wrong, my kids played with other kids too, but I was always ready for the first cry of boredom.  There's nothing worse than bored weans on holiday.

*********************

I am completely prepared for my interview tomorrow and not at all applying for a job that is massively out of my depth.  Nor can I feel the jitters coming on again because, you know, the wind changed direction, or something.

CD - Good luck!

Is it ok/normal (as Aunt and Uncle) not to have been invited to your neice's 1st Birthday party??  Brother and S-I-L live 10mins away BTW.

22/05/2013 at 21:56

Not really.... But to be honest I might have thought that you don't need to invite close relations, they have an implied permenant invitation? .... Clutching at straws a bit.

Well, we were told (not compulsory) to provide something for her 'Time Capsule' which will be opened on her 18th Birthday, which we duly did as her 1st Birthday was fast approaching.  However, we weren't invited to her 1st Birthday party.  My brother and S-I-L later told us that they had 16 people over.  Humph!

Based on your recent posts, it sounds like you need all new friends and family JC!

22/05/2013 at 22:09

You're probably right Pudge! Maybe the whole thing is just my mid-life crisis

Being rational is all well and good, but sometimes a bit of understanding goes a long way.

I'm not sure what the decision is, so that makes the phone call later slightly disconcerting. But I'm also not sure how I want it to go. The news yesterday that you'd decided not to finalise an offer of a position to my friend, 6 weeks after you had offered it to him, makes me wonder whether I'm interested now.

To the bus driver driving the bus yesterday - you are a tw#t. You saw me at the junction and decided not to let me cross the road before you made the difficult turn off the side road on to the main road. Of course, I accept you are not obliged to let me cross but a) it would have been a nice thing to do and b) it would have made your turn a lot easier. As such, you had to swing out to the other side of the road and the back end of the bus mounted the kerb nearly hitting me. You saw me in your wing mirror, as I saw you looking in it, but you decided to carry on. 

What made it worse is that the bus you were driving was the school bus and obviously full of children.

As such, I have written to both the school and your employers to advise them of your total disgregard to safety when driving. Like I said at the beginning of this, you are a tw#t
