Fat, Forty and feeling Flat


Yep that's me. I'm now officially ancient, well so the small people tell me :)

The only bit of my birthday that I got to do that I actually wanted to do was have my smalls with me. But hey ho, so on and so forth, blah blah and bleugh.


I've handed my notice in at work and feel sooooo much better for it. Just waiting now to find out if I finish this friday or next friday. Fingers crossed it's this friday! I have a million things zooming about in my head that I want to do once I'm home. The small people are happy knowing that soon Mum will be waiting for them when they get back from school, family meals will become the norm again and we can all spend more time together.


Despite having a pleasant enough birthday and being happy about giving up my job I seem to have a wee dark cloud bobbing about over my head again today. Winter blues I guess, fed up of snow and ice and being cold and they say there's more of it all coming! I still have 2 swap parcels sat here not sent. I will never ever be allowed to join another blog swap ever and quite rightly. I apologise and they will be with you (you know who you are) if I have to walk to your houses to deliver them. My house is a mess. I can't see my bedroom floor for boxes and bags, all things that have been dumped there from everywhere else. My craft room - well I know it's in the house somewhere but it seems to have either been sucked into a black hole or it's that really messy room that anyone passing seems to dump things into. And no my craft room and bedroom are not one and the same room but actually two different rooms. :(


Anyway enough gumping (moaning) watching the news brings home the fact that I really don't have anything to actuaily moan about. So next post? Happy things....I promise
Oh one bonus...My Mother finally went home - after 4 1/2 weeks here! :D

Hello poppet
Think of 40 as a new beginning, and thank goodness you've handed your notice in. Listen up girlfriend, I'm 40 tomorrow!!! wish we lived closer we could have stuffed our faces and worn I am 40 badges. You'll have time to get your life in order.
Remember all the best people were born in January 1970.
love

What a good start giving in your notice! Well Done you!
And 40 - Well! Thats just the beginning of the rest of your life as a wiser, calmer. more independant, sexer ,and interesting woman!
Get out there, buy yourself a lipstick, and live your life!
You're just feeling down with being ill, tired, and this gloomy weather - things will pick up!
And if nothing else get that craft room sorted then you can - play!

The sooner you finish work the better, by the sounds of things. You can start afresh then. Happy belated birthday!
