This post has no relevance to anything in particular and will mainly consist of me rambling, ranting and just generally having a good moan.
This week has been one of those weeks, nothing major has happened just little things have wound me up and made me feel super anxious. I’m hormonal as it is and just cannot shake this feeling off. It is like a heavy cloud over my head, I’m tired and grumpy for no reason whatsoever.
Things that have peed me off this week have been, my silly neighbour parking his huge work van at the bottom of our cul-de-sac and blocking the footpath. He has done this numerous times and I’m really fed up with it so I complained about it. He didn’t take this too well and had a go at me, I don’t think he was ready for the wrath of a hormonal crazy bitch mum. I’m actually proud to say I stood up for myself and put him in his place without shouting or swearing – go me! But I’ve worried continuously afterwards as I hate arguing with anybody, it really plays on my mind and I feel so bad. But he really deserved it and was so rude to me.
Anyway, the children have been super whiny and grumpy also this week. I think it was a mixture of late nights during half term and getting back into the swing of things after our mini break in Cornwall. They have been getting up early as well so everyone is miserable.
I tried and failed to cut my caffeine intake, I don’t know how people survive without coffee or tea. I am a total nightmare and have to have at least one cup a day just for my own sanity. After our holiday I felt so unhealthy and bloated that I have cut out all the rubbish I was eating and thankfully I’m feeling much healthier. I’ve been working out lots too which I’m really enjoying at the minute. It certainly puts me in a better mood and the children love joining in with me, they’ve made me laugh lots this week.
Today we took Amelie to ballet and had planned to go on a lovely beach walk to blow away the cobwebs and get some much needed fresh air. However, this was abandoned as both children wouldn’t stop bickering, fighting and whinging. I just thought to myself it was not worth it. You know the days where you plan something really nice and all they do is whinge that they are too cold, it’s boring, they want to go home…blah blah blah!? You come home wondering why the heck you bothered in the first place, that was my gut feeling for today so we came home and were lazy.
As it is bonfire night we picked up some fireworks and sparklers from The Range and Home Bargains. We had planned to take the children to the beach once it got dark, watch everyone else’s fireworks and light our sparklers. All was going well until dinner time (hotdogs – yum!) when Charlie decided to fall asleep mid munch. I’ve put him in bed so Amelie, Daddy and me are going to light a few rockets and sparklers in the garden. We will attempt to carry out our plan again tomorrow night.
Just one more rant before you all click the X, I’ve noticed more so than ever this week people posting a ridiculous amount of perfect life pictures on social media. I don’t know if I am being far too sensitive (probably) or what but, it is really blooming annoying! I know we are all guilty, me included, of posting the best bits of our lives but it does have an impact on how we feel. So, I just wanted to post a real and honest view of my week and let you know that life is not all perfectly kept houses, designer outfits, immaculate makeup and non frizzy hair. It is bloody hard work accompanied with dirty mum bun hair, 4 day old fake tan, the same jeans 3 days in a row because you feel just that little bit thinner in them and crusty eye makeup.
Right, I’m off to light some rockets and get out of my grump. Have a wonderful weekend and a super fun and safe bonfire night.
