shit, bugger, fuck, bum!!!!!
in the rushing around today on my day off and the  juggling that has been my day today I have completely stuffed up!!!

I got home from the manic town, the  post office, the bank, I have driven my son to friends, and am soon to drive him to dentist following removal of braces yesterday.   I started to wrap my daughters birthday gifts , I have bought her  some goodies and a lovely gift and I  cannot find the special gift and  then realised with a very loud oh shit fuck bugger bum,  that in error with my mind completely screwed and  stressed out even though I have got everything and am all done.....I have posted her gift to a woman who has bought my Biasia bag online !!!!!!

It's my daughter's 17th birthday on Sunday and I will never get it back to me by then, even if the lady does get my email and kindly resends it to me by return from the other end of the country!! I spoke to the Local Royal Mail sorting depot, and it has already  been collected and is  'In the system Madam.' and there's nought I can do...I feel so bad and her BIG Christmas present hasn't arrived either...

I try so hard then I fuck up...I could cry...I know she'll be fine about it....but I feel crap now!


  1. Hey Saz, you're her Mum - she's going to love you no matter what, and will probably laugh at your daftness. Chill, kick back, pour a gin and reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelax!

  2. So sorry, FFF, to hear about that. Never mind...I agree with BS5Blogger and she'll love you no matter what. After all it'll be something for her to look forward to. If not gin how about some bubbly? Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours. Hx

  3. Oh, oh, oh BUM. You pooooooooooooor thing. How bloody annoying and all. Can any of us send something or come to blogger rescue? Agree with Hadriana... bubbly.... let it work its Christmas magic.
    And let her see this post and receive that mega hug you'll give her... and she wont give a monkeys.
    I send massive blogger hugs and some of my sense of humour, which was in tatters two hours ago in Tesco but has revived a little with a cup of tea.

  4. Oh you know how many of us out here WISH we had a Mum like you? If anything, she will get a huge giggle out of the whole situation. Stop kicking's too short.

    BTW...I LOVE your string of frustration. Mine is usually something piss damn hell poopy...

    Word verification sounds much like what you're going through:


  5. One and all- Thanks..I've shown her the post AND told her I may be able to make it up to her (as my son said go see if you can buy another similar and then use the receipt to take the other back as and when - or give her both...

    make sa lot of sense, but then most things do when you mind is calm and clear!! DOH!! thanks all..panic over...dont feel quite sooo stupid...

  6. I'm glad to read that the crisis has subsided. I've been dealing with some daftness of my own this week! I'm happy to say I'm off work for 2 weeks now, though. I can't wait to just CHILL!

    Good work getting things worked out and calmed down! Peace - D

  7. Oh dear....I don't think I should find that funny, but I'm falling off my seat here....glad you've sorted it out...and it'll be a story told round your dining table at Christmas for years to come. Priceless!

  8. I can only echo BS5!

    (How does he do that when he's a single bloke?!!)

  9. Don't these things get you down. I was suicidal last monday about kids xmas presents. Will keep you in my thoughts. xxx

  10. Your son has excellent foresight. The perfect solution. Go buy a second one and return the first when you get it again. Have a peaceful Christmas!!

  11. All the planning in the world can not evade the fuckedupedness of an overworked woman. I've managed to screw up too but you know, love is love and the rest falls aside.

    Happy holidays!

  12. You are too hard on yourself. Our children are not that hard us.

  13. Oh no, you must be mortified! I'm sure when you explain to her what's happened she'll forgive you, after all it is Christmas and you're stressed!

  14. Chill, angel.So much good advice...have a lovely time and relaxxxxxxx.

  15. Great Nice post!it is very userfull to me, i like your post. thanks for you share. we will come here everyday.

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
