- tyring to work out how to invite Lilli's friends to a birthday party without offending those that don't get an invite.
- looking at her grade two book list and wondering why they expect me to buy 40 lead pencils costing over $14, plus 4 packets of colouring pens, 2 sharpeners, 2 scissors and the rest. do they let the children eat the pencils? who would use 40 pencils in one year? that averages out to one pencil a week!!!! that alone is sending me to the EDGE.
- taking mouldy bread back for a refund (something i never do but was so angry about the bloody bread) only to be questioned about the date on the docket not matching the date on the bread tag. the hideous lady called the bakery dude who pleasantly said 'just give her the refund'. the lady then proceeded to educate me about how the weather could have made it go off and that SHE refrigerates her bread blah blah blah... i was so mad and had to walk away. i had tears in my eyes the whole way round the store, when i came across her again i said 'i feel like giving that $2.50 back to you because it isn't worth the way you have made me feel, i wouldn't lie about mouldy bread' she blathered something about it being protocol and that Woolworths could afford it but she still didn't get the fact that it was her belittling manner that was the problem.
- trying to keep up with work and home life and feeling so muddle headed.
thanks for letting me rant, i just couldn't wait for my 'weekend whinge' post.
on a happier note we are heading out for wood fire pizza at the petrie night markets Friday night, lunch with poppy Jim on Saturday and lunch in toowomba on Sunday with some of our good friends. hopefully their company will lift my very blue spirits.lili, hannah and sianna with one of my best friends tina at last years christmas gathering.
