I always wanted a diary, something to help me remember good and bad times. I started to write one numerous times but would read it back and think 'how bloody boring am i?' and stop writing haha.
So, here I am giving it one last go. I hope to goodness PO is around forever!
We just got back from Manchester on Sunday evening. We had a lovely time, went to see Shutter Island (awesome film) caught up with Dean, Kevin and Lynn and chilled out. Leia was absolutely spoilt rotten but I didn't expect any less! I'm so glad I don't live too close to the 'in laws'.... it may sound horrid but if I had to see them all the time it would do my head in. DBFs mother is lovely but she is also the most depressing person EVER. She has this monotone voice (do you get me?) like it sounds the same whether she's happy, sad, excited etc. She can also be very sarcastic at times and that also grates on me. However, we were only there for a few days so I bit my tongue.
When we got home, my Mum was in the strangest mood and I did not feel welcome by her in the slightest. She is hard to read sometimes although I knew something was wrong and expected what I got the following morning.
Ok, so my Mum has let us move in with her to save money. That's great, I appreciate it and everything but OMG, I've never met someone who is so obsessed with the cleanliness of their house. Yea, I get she doesn't want to live in squaller but if you could see it.... it's like walking into a show home. DBF and I help out as much as we can but when it comes to laundry, my Mum is there before me. I make sure I clean for her every weekend but because it isn't to her standards, we don't pull our weight and it's a lack of respect (her words!) I was so angry she said that but what can I do? I've asked her to write a list, a bit like a chore list so I know exactly what she wants us to do so she can't moan anymore.
I really can't wait until we have saved enough and all my debt is paid off so I can move back into my own place.
I managed to send my CV off for a Social Work Assistant job. Haven't heard anything yet but I'm hoping that's because it's been Easter. Fingers crossed!!
