I wrote a post on Betrayal, tried to publish it but then Blogger kind of went nuts. I kept trying on and off for most of yesterday but eventually gave up. I then read my horoscope on Facebook and it told me:
Watch your words today. You can say things that cut through to the bone. You don't realize just how harsh you can sound. You may be absolutely right, but there are more gentle ways to tell a loved one they are not being realistic than "Are you off your rocker completely?"
So maybe it's just as well that it didn't get posted huh? lol although I wasn't saying anything like that. I took that to mean that Friday was not the day to let the world read it.
Jack is in respite for 4 nights. I was supposed to be taking Holly to Dublin this weekend but it was bad timing on my part because it turned out to be slap bang in the middle of the exams!
Last night we went to the cinema to see Beastly. It was quite good but a bit cheesy. They guy playing the lead was really quite hot but is it wrong that I thought he was hotter once he's been changed into this scarred, ugly, tattooed guy! This, from the person that thought the guy in Avatar was hotter once he'd been transformed into a blue alien! In my defence, Holly agreed with me re both movies! What can I say? It's genetic!
So today I am taking the opportunity to chill and do stuff around the house.
I have bought a new bed. A leather one, so really I should be getting my finger out and putting it together instead of being on the net but I can't quite seem to get myself motivated! The new mattress arrived yesterday too so I really don't have any excuse!

My ex and I bought the bed I have at the moment, about 3 months after we moved into this house. I liked it but I didn't love it. When we split up, 3 months later, he didn't want anything from the house and I couldn't justify spending money on a new one but 9 years later, I think it's time for a change.
I love getting new things for the house, it's one of life's little pleasures!
Tomorrow I am heading through to Aberdeen to see Kathy and to visit an old lady, Phyllis, who we used to work with. I love Phyllis to bits but she does put a lot of pressure on me to visit regularly which is made more difficult by the fact that she now uses a wheelchair. It's not like I just pop in for a coffee either because she likes me to take her out and about when I visit. This means I can only really visit her when I don't have Jack. I have tried it whilst I had him and Holly with me once and I was so exhausted that I thought "never again!".
These days when Jack is in respite, I am just too tired to go anywhere and the last thing I feel like doing is a 130mile round trip to visit someone especially when it feels like a busman's holiday!
Kathy though, has volunteered to help! So it wont be near as tiring with the two of us doing it so I'm looking forward to the banter with Phyllis cos for a lady who has had quite a few mini strokes, her mind is as sharp as a tack and her humour is as wicked as mine!
Then Monday, Holly and I are going through to Inverness for a spot of girlie shopping. I think we might take the train because it saves me having to drive.
So that's my weekend all sorted. Hope you have a good one my little gigglers.
