Yeah I tend to grumble a lot lately and I'm sorry for that but grumbling here at least lets me get it out. It also helps you guys understand why I'm slow etc.
Well, apart from a great day with my baby sister's birthday yesterday we've been suffering a whole week sans hot water and I've been having to wait up for the plumbers and electricians etc and talk to them. I don't know about you but I'm sure a lot of women will agree with me - most of the people in this trade will talk to you like you're thick because you're a woman. Thankfully, we've got a nice guy who was honest from the beginning with me and actually did not treat me like a child, which is bloody rare. But... every time we sort one thing out with the plumbing something else seems to go wrong. I'm so totally on edge at the moment about it I keep thinking the emission will just explode and kill me! I know that sounds extreme but my brother bought back a horrendous virus from work that's infected everyone in the house.
As much as viruses interest me... suffering viruses can frustrate me as I've had almost every other day off of my writing to rest because of bad bowels, aching pains, horrendous headaches and buzzing ears. Mix this with cold weather and my asthma, I'm a little grouchy with everyone but I don't mean to be so. Despite this I've been going to work as usual and the past two weeks I've been surprisingly productive would you believe it!
Okay... rant over... I am slow at the moment with my work and my birthday gifts but I've got my sister's birthdays to deal with so I'm still going to be distracted. Let's face it, February is my worst month so I'm going to be very distracted.
