In the old days ..

When you had an operation you were kept in hospital for a week , convalescing , sorting out your pain relief , eating grapes !! thus ensuring that you went home rested and knowledgeable on your condition, nowadays your whacked into surgery the deed is done, you are then forced up out of bed and pushed to tick the boxes and sent home with a bag of medication, thus resulting in two bewildered parents who cant get reu to swallow(even his own spit) medication and food, he is awake all night screaming in pain and we are not parents any more but the husks of parents !!We ring the ward , they say ,your doing all the right things but if he is too ill its a matter for A and E we cease to be their problem, they have done their job !! Mad !!

One thing that gets my goat is unreliability and rather than turn this into a slanging match about the uselessness of ex partners !! i will just say that i have now rearranged for Thomas to go to a friends after school on Monday whilst we are in hospital with Reu , fed up of being let down i decided i wouldn't bother and told the person in question that he was going elsewhere ! i need to know that he will be in a place of security with people who have a memory !!

The Great Washing Machine debate ..

My washing machine has died, the man came today, took one look and said, it'll cost 200 quid to fix, you may as well get a new one, which obviously launched me into a discussion on the ever growing mountain of white goods etc ... He then turned into some sort of spokes man for government failings and manufacturers of appliances , it went on for half an hour, i basically paid him 15 pounds for a lecture !!!Although the idea of hand washing and washboards and soap sounds very appealing to me (and i mean very) it's just not practical so we are going to have to get a new one and that actually fills me with guilt, and that i why i started this extra blog, i actually feel guilty about harming the environment, I really do xx


With all the busy mummy stuff on my other blog i felt it necessary to have my own private blog where i can share my daily thoughts and ramblings a bit of a thinking space so to speak , sometimes it will be peaceful thoughts , sometimes not so peaceful and some times a bit ranty !! I have always felt that my thoughts on life were different to everyone else and that my family seem to think I'm a bit of an oddball, but since joining the green parent forum last year i realise I'm not the only one, we are all like minded people x Please feel welcome to join me on this journey xxxx
