Since last I wrote I have mostly been being busy. I have also mostly been being without broadband – for TWENTY WHOLE DAYS. I swear to god you cannot begin to imagine how TRULY AWFUL that actually was. I spent days and days of my life trying not to be sarcastic to the tech dudes on the phone, but they were TOTAL freaking idiots and they were VERY VERY lucky not to get a poke in the chuffing eye….
Anyways – I’m back online now*, I’ve written my highly sarcastic email of complaint, and I’m starting to run out of busy so I decided that now was as good a time as any for a little update from WeeGee land.
I suppose the headline is that I’m all moved in and pretty much settled here in the new place with Mr Awesome Thing Number Five and, to cut a long story short, it’s AWESOME. Don’t get me wrong, the unpacking was a right royal pain in the backside, and there are still a few stray boxes kicking about but, you know, it feels a lot like home and he and I are rubbing along quite nicely together. We’re a pretty good team when all’s said and done.
I won’t lie – all this living together stuff is making for one heck of an adjustment. I knew I’d gotten used to living by myself, and I knew living with Mr Awesome Thing Number Five was going to be a HUGE change and a HUGE challenge. I’m working hard to mitigate, to make allowances, to compromise. I’m also working hard to look after myself and to give myself the priorities and space that I need. The thing is, it feels like working hard is worth every single ounce of effort it takes at the moment. Put simply – I’m having to work at life right now but life is good regardless.
It’s been a while since my last post and I’m a little rusty at this blogging lark so this was only ever going to be a short one. Will it do?
I’ll be back again in no time at all, just you wait and see. In the meantime, here’s a pretty little song:
Love you all lots like jelly tots

Ha, I’ve been married almost 11 years now and it’s still hard work for both of us every day but like you said worth it! Glad you’re settled in.
Thanks lovely and I’m all for hard work on this one 😀
It’s worth it!
OMG twenty days without internet, that’s a little too long. A couple of days mebbe but twenty, holy hell fire that had to hurt!
It. Was. Awful.
WOO HOO!!! I absolutely hate moving. But I’m delighted to hear that you and your young man are getting settled and are getting along so well. 🙂
Woop woop. Four weeks and we haven’t killed one another yet!
Enough? We’ll take what we can get, WeeGee. Can’t begin to imagine what three weeks sans wifi would be like. And let’s not even talk about how Summer Solstice Girl would fare…
It was bad. Really bad. Really, really, REALLY bad….. 😛
