It's all my fault

This was a long post, all personal stuff and about family and it was obliterated for some reason. I am not the swearing type and I only save swear words for when I am really really cross as patch. Fuck!! I blame the European law thingie about privacy that just popped up for the first time.  I might have something prepared for later in the day.

In brief, Mother is in hospital as was her intent. Sister is Townsville visiting Bone Doctor's grandmother, Mother's phone is broken and had moved in ABI Brother's place. R and myself argued badly earlier this week. We went out with friends for dinner on the Royal Wedding night, our third dinner out this year. We are missing our friend who organised such things.  Little Jo is on school camp at Somers and has won an art prize for a pencil sketch of a children's book author. Hippie Niece is not doing well, and R was called on to assist with the twins, who are so so heavy and one does majestic projectile vomiting. One is walking. Work has turned from bad to worse. I am only joking but where is the wrist slashing carving knife?

  2. Ill health is a bugger :( Why make pregnancy, child birth and raising a child soooo much effort, if the good Lord, nature or dumb luck is just going to cause pain later on?

    1. Hels, if you mean Hippie Niece, yes she did the hard yards of bearing the twins really well. Now she can't get out of bed in the mornings to look after them.

  3. Your having a shitty time by the looks of it. I, too, swear, so when EC is taking a breather, I'll fill in for her.

    I hope your weekend brings happier moments...many of them.

  4. Oh no Andrew. Why is it that everything horrible seems to happen all at the same time. Keep your pecker up and try not to fight with R, you need each other at times like this. Big hugs coming your way xox

    1. Grace, it does seem to happen that way. Nothing wrong with my pecker, but thanks for the support.

    1. Ad Rad, she did indeed have a good week. It is quite a prestigious award. She will be enjoying the better weather this weekend at Somers.

    1. Thanks Margaret. It is quite horrible to see your mother go from bright, vivacious and outgoing to a whining, insular self obsessed old woman....although she has always been selfishly inclined.

  8. I don't swear much but I will today, for you. I'll even stamp my foot if you think that may help.
    European law thingy about privacy?
    It sounds very much like you are all going through a rough patch. I hope things improve soon.
    If you do resort to wrist slashing, please don't do it on the carpet, the shower is a much easier clean up area. You have a giant economy sized box of bandaids handy?

    1. River, you could hold your breath too, as well as stamping your foot, but just make it a token effort. Yes, I am surprised you haven't seen it the European privacy thing. I don't think that was really to blame now. I hit a wrong combination of keys. Reminds me, I have only about four bandaids. They won't stem much blood flow.

  9. Uh oh. I hope things get better soon.

  10. That's really strange that your post was erased. I don't think that has something to do with the new privacy police, that's more for emails tel n° etc. Pictures are censured even statues from famous artists because they are naked ! Google employees have a lack on general knowledge !

    1. Gattina, it disappeared as I was finishing the post. Maybe Blogger thought I was writing too much rubbish :) Yes, that censorship thing for adults is silly, and children should be able to see art.

  11. Oh, dearie, sorry for all the angst happening at the moment.
