 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

Going to have a little mini rant now about GoT - love the books and really enjoying the series but ...

ok, better cut for SPOILERS, cos I got told off about it before haha

Do not read if do not want SPOILERS )

It's my birthday tomorrow and, as per usual, I'm so depressed :(

I don't know why I get like this every single year; I love my birthday as it's happening - gimme pressies, and love, and alcohol! hehe But I HATE getting older. So I'm 34 again, and I will severely damage anyone who says otherwise, OK!?!

Ok, so one of my resolutions was to get back to blogging more - it's only the 12th, I'm not that late haha

Crimbo was good, despite having a terrible cold which came down with a fury on Boxing Day and hadn't quite let up by New year's Eve, but I still went out :) and had fun!

But the best thing that has happened this year is that I have new fluffy-bum fur-babies! and I am so happy. I can't describe to you how amazing it makes me feel to have a cat follow you round the house, or squeak to get your attention ( neither of them mew properly), or flop down on the floor at your feet for belly-rubs, or clamber around on your lap and stick their bum in your face, or climb over the keyboard while you're on the computer - I have missed this so so so much!
They're both so adorable, and the prettiest pair ever. They bonded with me immediately, taking a little longer with Jack (by a little longer I mean no more than an hour)and they have to keep checking where we are when they're investigating round the house - running back every 10 minutes to squeak about some new discovery and then off again - they're so funny!

I am now going to spam you with piccies haha

Read more... )

Have the most horrendous headcold - cannot focus on the keyboard or the screen to write anything so Nano is pretty much out the window for me right now - I'm still writing notes longhand but of course that means typing them up at some point and I've kind of lost the plot (of life) for the mo so ... snuggles on my settee with knitting and kitty is about as much as I can handle.

Just thinking though I really need to sort out this dreamwidth account with a decent layout - any volunteers - you know what I like?!! Oh and for those who haven't added me here yet it's 'scutter' just so you know.
[NB: posting on DW, cross-posting to LJ]

Right, even this miniscule amount of typing has made my vision all fuzzy and head hurting like a bastard to I'm off to find my blankie :)

So it seems, from a Russian rumour, that LJ will finally be giving up the ghost in the Spring with a leaked preview page that turns LJ into something more akin to Tumblr. Plans are also afoot to get rid of paid account and other paid extras (making me doubly pleased I did not renew my paid bits). This saddens me but I suppose it was to be expected.

I'll just have to start using this Dreamwidth account more ... ho hum!

Life, ish

Have I seriously not used this journal for a whole year? How bizarre!
Maybe I was hoping Lj would sort itself out? Maybe I was wishing the mass exodus would slow down and the comms return to life?
neither of those things happened of course and I realised I hadn't blogged on LJ since April. I don't know what to do really - I have an attachment to my comms but it feels rather futile updating them when no-one is around to care. But on the other hand do I have the energy to start over on here, or elsewhere? Probably not. Saying that I kind of promised myself I'd blog more often - not that I have anything to say but more to validate my existence on the interwebs haha

Oh I don't know ... what to do!

I've just announced I will be making a f-cut on lj. My f-list there isn't large but there are people who don't comment, and don't post much themselves. Also a couple of people's association with cambitch still worries me. I'd like to remove all possible ties from that girl.
On top of that there is still the problem of x-posting and so on, which LJ seems determined to ignore.
Maybe I should post here more often - but then I have so little to say about my life atm ...

Really, this is simply to have something on my page - I have no idea what to write or what I'm intending to do with this journal - call it security!
