Just one of those days…

I’m feeling a lot overwhelmed today…

There’s so much going on! My gran is in hospital having surgery on her knee, being the matriarch of the family, we were all on tenterhooks, but she came out of the surgery just fine and I’m sure, knowing her, that by now she is giving the hospital staff hell 🙂 I’ll be popping round after work to visit the battle axe 🙂

A very good life long friend of mine had to tell me over the phone that she’s probably getting divorced (because I’m too busy to see her this week)! My heart breaks for her and her family, after 24 years of marriage and having really been great examples of what makes a great marriage until about 4 years ago when the cracks started creeping in. Of course, I feel guilty as hell for not being able to drop everything and run to her side.

Frenchy and I are really battling with our other housemate, who besides having just got out of rehab, and who seems to be on a roller coaster ride of life, has turned into a kleptomaniac as well. For a while now, she has just been helping herself to Frenchy’s jewelery without permission, Frenchy will get home and Pommy will be wearing her earrings, no skaam or anything! Last night Frenchy got home, and not only was Pommy wearing Frenchy’s new earrings from YDE, but Pommy had taken it upon herself to “modify” them, by removing one section of the earrings! Frenchy understandably lost the plot! On further inspection of my jewellery collection, I realised that 4 of my rings were missing, so I went through and asked Pommy if she had them, she took the 1 off her finger and gave it to me! And swore she didn’t have the others! At this point I was doing a Popeye impersonation with steam billowing out of my ears and lost the plot with her. I made it infinitely clear that it was not okay for her to go into our rooms and just take and use our stuff and that if it happened again, I’d give her notice! EH! Can Frenchy and I not just find a nice normal housemate?

The only positive thing I have to report today is that I got my lampshades finally for my Bedroom Makeover. Pics to follow soon …

Just going to wallow in this overwhelming day for a while…
