 Ah, I see DW is as dead as LJ. Oh never mind. I need to rant and this is the safest place to vent.

Apparently I've upset I. Apparently I'm being difficult.
Oh well, really?!


Yesterday I asked him if he'd pop over before getting A from work. He replied in the affirmative but then started telling me he'd been to A&E with friends. It was a very disjointed text convo so I wasn't sure why or what he was telling me - was it that a) he'd just been there and was tired, b) he'd just been there and was busy sorting it out, or c) general gossip/news because it involved mutual friends. Anyway I hadn't heard anything from him for about an hour after this so was beginning to wonder what was going on, especially as it was getting close to the time he normally collects A. Jackstar arrived home and said he'd go to the shop with me (my back was bad, hence needing some assistance). I duly texted I to say it didn't matter and Jack was going with me. He replied he was on his way. I told him not to bother. He rang. I said it was fine. He texted again to say he was coming over anyway. I was on way to the shop by this point and there was no sign of him when we  got home and no further calls or messages.
I didn't hear anything at all yesterday which I thought was a bit odd as he's off to Switzerland today so I'd assumed they'd be popping over briefly at some point. But no.
And then today I get the weird offhand message that he didn't think I wanted to see them because of my attitude.

Excuse me while I argh a bit.

Oh, and on top of all this Jackstar is being a pain in the butt regarding going to school - and he thinks his attendance is besdie the point because he's getting good grades but I'm getting snotty emails on a daily basis telling me otherwise.


and my back is killing me, and my depression is fairly extreme atm and argh ARGH ARGGGGHHHHHHH!

*le sigh*


Boo hiss!

 I don't know if I'm just getting way too curmudgeony in my old age (lol) but so many things seem to piss me off these days.

This morning I found myself growling at FB - not the page itself, which I really only check to play my stupid Cafe game, but certain inane status updates from 'friends'. Why are people so negative? (says the woman having a growl about it haha) What is with all the passive-aggressive updates? and the ones that should be positive but actually read as negative?

There is one person in particular whose every status begins with 'I enjoyed/liked/had fun with ...', all very positive and happy you think, oh no, because they always, ALWAYS, continue with a 'but' or 'even though'. I'm not even sure she realises she does it. She probably thinks she's writing about the wonderful time she's had and everything is rosy and fantastic with rainbows and sparkles. She isn't the brightest to be fair but all the same, it irks me.
The last one I saw read as follows: 'Had a great time with A & B last night, even though I was really hot and tired.' 
Is it just me? Does anyone else see the negativity in this?
This is a typical post from her. Earlier this week I saw 'Lovely to see A, but it was so far! lol' Do you see what I mean? It should read as a positive statement but it doesn't. Argh! And don't start with the incorrect grammar! Grr! and I don't even know why I care!
I removed her from my f-list anyway - she's not someone close, and I doubt she'll notice, but as we have mutual friends I'll probably still see her updates when they 'like' them. *bangs head on desk*

Why do I care? Nothing to do with her as a person, as I can take or leave her tbh and have no emotional attachment to her whatsoever. It's that she, and others like her, have the uncanny knack of utterly ruining my mood in the blink of an eye. I was feeling quite happy and upbeat this morning - it was James' 20th bday yesterday (and I didn't have a breakdown at that fact), we'd had a lovely day and I'd spent a few pleasant and productive hours making denim bunting while watching Sherlock - all in all a good day in my books. I hadn't slept well - this heat is killing me - but I was feeling reasonably spritely and chipper when I got up until I read her status and my mood plummeted like a rock instantly. And now I'm narked, and depressed, and feeling really out of sorts. So fing annoying.

Hey ho ... tum te tum and ommmmmmm etc.

Ignore me, I'm just a grumpy old woman. Think I'll watch more Supernatural to cheer myself up hehe
