Earlier on in the week we, (Bex, Matt and I), decided to visit the Sky Tower sometime this week.
When Steve heard this he wanted in on the act too, so he's taken the day off work so he can come too.
I WAS gunna go, but I think I want a quiet day at home to just relax and think about a few things .... like ... I am going to join a new patchwork class/group and just get myself into a few things outside the home.
I need to get out more, meet more people, try and make some friends here in Auckland.
In the 6 years we have been here I can honestly say I have probably made 5-6 "friends"?
And of them, I've seen Lynda a handful of times, Kate 2-3 times, Lisa twice, Tracy once, and Victoria not at all. Have I missed anyone?
I don't seem to be very good at making friends.
So I really need to do something about that. It's not healthy to be so insular, depending on a bloody computer for company.
It's not REAL is it?
Real is actually enjoying being with others, having a laugh, sharing experiences, sharing one's life beyond a computer screen.
So if I do try, maybe further down the track I can be a happier person?
Oh and YES... cutting back on the anti-depressants has made me 'feel' more, get crabby more, react quicker, get upset and have me stomach churn... and CRY.
I ain't cried much in YEARS ... in the past couple of days I've either cried, or been on the verge of crying all the time.
I am sure once me insides settle down and adjust to having less medication on board I will be fine.
Lots has happened so far this year... and it's about time I reacted to it. Even if that meant a few tears and tantrums.
Awww sorry Donna!
Lynda: no I didn't know that... but blogger is such a shit I'm not surprised!
I'm off to get some fabric for me frog, just realised I don't have enough for the body and legs/arms. *sigh*
Oh dammit, I have to go to Spotlight! dumm dee doooo...
Hmmmm.... so I'm trying something else re: the comment problems. I've taken off Comment Moderation, lets see if that changes anything? Can someone try and leave a comment who normally has trouble ? LYNDA? TRACY?
Spotlight: OMG they are so low on nice fabric! They must be expecting a new shipment in soon cos the patchwork fabrics they do have are mostly old lines and revolting. I didn't find anything green for me frog, so I ended up going to The Crafty Needle on Jack Conway Ave in Manukau.
I got some fabric there... just a little.... and talked to Ngaire about joining a class or two. She runs about 3 during the week, 2 during the day and one at night.
I'm going to attend next Wednesday's 10 am class and see what I think of it. You can just do your own projects while there, which suits me perfectly.
Griffin is due back at school around 3 pm today. I hope I don't get engrossed in something and forget him... it's been done before!
FUCK IT ALL.... Brylee has just been suspended for the day at her college, and is right now on her way home.
She 'claims' she is being bullied, but the teachers have been keeping a very close eye on the situation at school surrounding her, and can see very little evidence of bullying.
Today she bitch slapped some boy. She called a maori girl a racist name and she's been bullshitting to the teachers about the bullying.
Need this sort of shit like I need a hole in the head.
TRACY: For now.. yep she's banned to her room. We shall talk to her about this once Stew gets home. She tried to tell me she was home early because there was a problem with about 4 girls and she had NO IDEA what was going on cos "No one is telling the same story"... and so they were all sent home to think about it. WTF planet is she on?
Griffin arrived home safe and sound. Cold and tired... well fed though. He's looking forward to bed... he said everyone talked too much at night.
That would be fairly normal on a school camp I'm sure.
*snort* ... ANON (deleted comment).. "time to go back to Lacy"???? She
hasn't 'been' with Lacy since she was 6 weeks old. And I am not putting up with this shit by the way.
Want to see today's fabric purchases? Here ya go:
ABOVE: How AMAZING is this fabric? I'm going to try doing a small Kaleidoscope Stack 'n' Whack quilt with it one day.
ABOVE: Some really lovely ones in this lot.
ABOVE: My camera's flash kinda killed the pale pink background of this fabric... but you can still see how ADORABLE it is.
ABOVE: More .... and the one on the right might suit the 'Stack 'n' Whack' technique too.
Steve is cooking dinner. Weird. It's not even his 'turn'... but I shan't complain!
KAREN: What do you mean by 6 repeats? I got all of it... there was only that amount, which is about .75 of a metre.
End of Day: a funny day... some good, some annoying, some just 'OVER IT' TYPE OF FEELING.
Stew has spoken to Brylee, pointing out that IF she keeps lying and making trouble at school she can kiss goodbye to ever being a nurse, as she will never get accepted as she can't be trusted, and is derogatory towards ANYONE because of their race.
So, the punishment is early to bed for a while... as that is about the only thing we can think of that will make a difference to her.
Time to wrap up the day... relax and watch some telly... or maybe go and cut out my frog?
