I'm having one of those weeks..... I've had enough of being nice to everyone!!! So I'm going to have a rant to let it all out.... sorry!!!
On Friday I had a really bad day at work with someone moaning at me all day.... everything I did was wrong..... the funny thing was I was in charge that day, that's how soft I'am!!! I had a moment where I thought I'm just going to sit down & cry but I managed to pull myself together.
Yesterday was my friends birthday & as I mentioned we were going to Bristol to TGI's, her favourite restaurant, I booked the tickets for the train last Sunday only to get an email back confirming we would be doing most of the journey by bus!!! I didn't want to travel by bus that why I booked the train. I emailed my friend who was also not happy about this so I tried to get a refund.... something I'm still trying to sort. As it was her birthday I decide to just get on with it & make the most of the day. Her mum agreed to drive, although she really didn't want to. My friend can drive but she wanted to have a drink. Anyway I've spent all week sorting out the tickets, trying to order her birthday presents from amazon.... every year 3 of us buy a present together so I had to send several email to sort this.
I was happy we were going to John Lewis because as you know I was planning on getting the sewing machine.... this will be my Christmas present from my parents.... please note another present I had to sort. Anyway the day came & I was collected, I had my camera with me to share the day with you, I felt like a real blogger!! We set off but they were not happy as they'd had some family problems in the morning. My friend had to drive so this meant she couldn't drink anyway. We arrived at TGI's to discover it was packed, 2nd thing to go wrong. We only had to wait 1/2 hour for a table so not bad. Her mum waited in the car as she had decided she didn't want to eat. I ordered something different off the menu & I didn't like it... it tasted like sick!!! (sorry!!) We stayed for an hour then popped to John Lewis.... please let this day be saved.....but it was so busy & they had moved the wool to the top floor!! I felt a real pain because they were just walking behind me & I could tell they didn't really want to be there. So we left empty handed!!! After just over 1 1/2 hours in Bristol we headed back to Exeter, the journey to Bristol takes 1 hours 10 mins each way!! Have you noticed there are no photo's??? Yes that's right I didn't get the chance!!
Because we got back so early I had a chance to go home for 2 hours to relax then it was back out for round 2..... the evening meal. Some people had pulled out, including her mum, so there was only 5 of us. The food was lovely, which was good, but after the meal they wanted to go for a drink in an area of Exeter I hate on a Saturday night....... I felt like an extra in one of those TV programmes about booze Britain.... it was awful!!! I'm just not that kind of girl, it's not that I'm too old I was never like this in my teens.... don't get me wrong I like a good party but not with these people!!! At 11.30 I decided I had done my duty for this birthday..... roll on next year!!!
So today is a new day & I was hoping to get some crafty things done but after doing the shopping & housework it's already mid day. I didn't think I had that much housework to do but when I looked at the kitchen I realised it needed a really good sort out. Oh well another day off wasted!!!
When will I every get time for me??? I think in the new year I'll have to address this or else I'll go crazy!!
Back to work tomorrow & so it starts again.... working 13 hours on Thursday & I have the Christmas party on Saturday.... god how I hate the party... sitting with people you don't really like trying to have fun. I always end up drinking loads just to block it out.... at least with the smoking ban I can stand out side all night!!! I'm the only one who smokes.... what a bad person I'am!!!
I went for reflexology on Monday & she told me that I was not very good at letting things out... eg I don't show anger.... hope this has helped.
I'm now off to have roast chicken then I'm going to bed to watch a lovely old film.... what a nice Sunday afternoon. I now don't care if I don't finish my Christmas gifts, sod it!!!..... maybe I'll cancel it this year.... I'm not even bothering with a tree.... bah humbug!!!
Hope you're all having a great Sunday......
