A Lounge Suite Fit For A Castle

While they were in storage for 11 long months, our couches got covered in mould. We were planning on replacing them soon anyway, so this gave us the incentive.

Here are the new ones. I'm in love.

Beginning Of An Era

We're all moved into the Castle, but we have no internet connection yet, and are in a sea of boxes. I was VERY tempted to make a fort like the one above, but I don't have the energy.
Once things are in some sort of order I'll take lots of photos and put them up. In the meantime, here is one I took of the kitchen on handover day.

Happiness is...

...this song!

I rediscovered it today and even though I have had a really ordinary day, I was almost instantly cheered up. I hope it cheers you up too, if you need it!

While I was on the tube of you, I also found this...

And this...

I could go on all day, but I won't.

My amazing sister and bro-in-law are cooking roast lamb tonight, that's gotta make anyone happy, yeah?

The other current source of happiness is this...

It is 'finished'. It is 'done'.

We get the keys tomorrow! Woot!!!

An Open Letter

*** If you are not a fucktard, you do not need to bore yourself with this post. Go out into the sunshine and do something constructive, like search for a unicorn. This letter is for the fucktards, and they know who they are.

Dear Fucktards,

There are so many of you floating around in my life right now that I hardly know how to begin this letter.

I just don't have the energy to deal with you at the moment. I barely have the energy to do anything. Almost every morning I have to give myself a stern talking-to just so I am able to get out of bed. Some afternoons I need to remind myself that it WILL get better and I will NOT be driving home in tears forever. I'm having trouble seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and YOU ARE NOT HELPING.

I'm sick of hearing people whinging about situations that they have put themselves in. Either do something to fix it, or shut the hell up about it, I don't need to hear it. You won't get, nor do you deserve, my sympathy while you carry on like a pork chop about things you have the power to change. If you keep doing the same things, you can expect the same results, good or bad.

I don't want to be accused of doing things to you that you YOURSELF are doing to me. It's not nice and to be honest, it's not bloody fair. Just because there are some people that have been taken in by your crap does not mean I have as well. Just because it may look like you have got what you wanted, it doesn't mean that you have. Not for one fucking second. I am angrier about this than you will ever know. However, I am smarter than you, and I know that I will not achieve anything by telling you what I think right now, so I will keep it to myself. For the time being.

Please take a long hard look at yourself and think about the image you are projecting to the world about yourself, is this the one that you want out there? Are you aware that anything you write on the internet is there FOREVER. It never gets erased completely. Do you want future generations seeing the things you have written?

I have had a crap year. I'm not going to explain why here, as anyone bothering to read this probably knows me in the real world. If you really need me to elaborate, let me know and I will. I'm guilty of whinging about it, sure, but the difference is that most of the things that have made it crap are things that are OUT OF MY CONTROL. This is perhaps why people like you that are spending their time sooking about choices they have made in their life, and in some cases, continue to make, are really starting to get up my goat.

I'm really trying to accept you for the fucktard that you are, but with so much else going on in my world I am really struggling. Is there any chance you could try to meet me halfway?

Bits Of My Weekend - Volume Eighteen

Sorry I haven't been very bloggy lately. I've had a lot going on. Some of it great, some of it woeful. In any case, I haven't felt like writing, so I didn't. Doubt anyone even noticed really.

Yesterday was a designated rest day. I did sweet bugger all except for some cleaning and reading. Chyken went to the Castle with his Dad to collect fence offcuts and generally play in the mud while I had a big fat sleep in.

At this stage, Ownership of the Castle is scheduled for September 21st. It has been a looooong time coming and we are super excited! We got fences this week, and those and the IXl tastics in the bathrooms are the only bits of the house that we actually own right now. Not us and the bank, but just US.

Today Chyken and I (and some other lovely friends!) went to a concert at his school. "Colours of the Drum" by David Jones was AMAZING! He plays with two drumkits. And an array of Tibetan and Japanese bowls and at one point a broom! If you every have the opportunity to see David perform, grab it with both arms!

Bits Of My Weekend is an idea stolen from Six in the City. Please go over there and check out her blog, she hasn't posted for a while because she has had other things on her mind. You'll understand if you read the last few posts on her blog. Please say a prayer for her while you're there, if you're into that kind of thing.

What did YOU get up to this weekend? If you have a blog, I'd love you to leave a link to it in your comment below.
