I've looked and I can't see one.  Please let me know if I'm doubling up.  

How has your week been?  Mine has had ups and downs and frustrations but we have come through and DS won't need to be admitted to hospital next week so that's a huge win.  

This weekend some of the DS' friends and their dads are heading to straddie for camping for a night.  So it will just be me and DD this weekend which will be nice.  We'll be looking at ballet classes  ph34r.gif  and catching up with a friend for lunch.  

I'm drinking a classic dry white which is going down far too nicely.  And I've just realised I've misplaced it.  

Somewhere.

Hells yes.

I have no idea why a certain bottle shop decided that Rekorderlig Winter Cider must be drunk only in Winter and thus discounted it by almost half price, but I sure am grateful.

It's been an absolute horror of a week with no redeeming features to it.

I had a counselling session with my douchebag brother yesterday.

He spent the whole thing bagging me out to the nice therapist.  It was horrible.

At least he showed up I guess.

And I have no alcohol in the house.  **insert sadface**

About to evict the emo 10yo from my bed, then I'll have a glass of merlot.

I need advice/to vent about a child friendship thingo too.

Faradaye if you have no alcohol in the house it means you are sober enough to drive - to a bottlo.  I would remedy no alcohol in the house quick smart.  Your brother sounds like an a*se.


Dabri - hopefuly your weekend and week is better then!

Hell yeah.

Was hot.  Frozen berries, frozen vodka, mint leaves, lime, ice....way too many.

May or may not be smashed


Probably am

No hats fit me.

I just found some alcohol!

It is a bottle of pear cider - a christmas present from the aforementioned douchebag brother.

Yes, I see the irony too.

Break up by text message?

I'm so sorry, you deserve much better than that.

Yep, I got 'meeting in person won't change anything, we should go our separate ways'. My request to talk in person were knocked back... Except for the fact I'm still hurting its safe to say I've potentially saved myself from much worse in the long run...

well DH just offered to refill my glass of sem sav blanc so i even have my own bartender tonight ;-) plus he's currently doing the washing up!

this week has been interesting, DD (5mo) has been not sleeping well and very cranky. but yesterday was a glorious day, decent 40min sleeps and a very happy bub, and i caught up with some lovely friends. today was ok, not as good but still better than the rest of the week...

Who does a break up text msg?  That's really poor form.  I'm hoping it goes a long way to indicating that you're far, far better off without him.  

Gosh I'm tired.  It's only 8pm but I'm exhausted.  

Nice work Faradye finding some liquor.

But it tastes horrible!

I feel your pain, my ex-husband ended our marriage by text. I definitely need a drink. It is too hot
Week would have been great if I didn't go to the dentist yesterday and found out that I have two holes between my teeth. Grr to not flossing!!!!

Apparently men in their late 30s...your think theyd know better. Pity...really would have liked him to see me cry. I'm quite enjoying the fact he can see my comments on FB, though I'm being the 'bigger person' and keeping things nice.

Thanks. On the up side, a few of my friends and my sister have gone all out to cheer me up with lunches, dinners etc.

Break up by text - what a douchecanoe! Best to be shot of him.

And pear cider is generally delicious...

I'm here too!

Sorry to those who had bad weeks, blackcat that's awful, vent away as much as you want.

My week was ok, crazy busy getting ready to move overseas in a couple of weeks, so everything is a bit out of control.

Ending a marriage using text?

I'm astounded.  What a total coward's way out.  That's awful, and quite disrespectful.

Blackcat I'm glad your friends are giving you some support.  And good on you for being the 'bigger person', although it's never as fun or gratifying as just letting fly I find.

Break up text = not worth your heartache. It still hurts though I'm sure sad.gif

But hell yeah to the bar! My mum called me up 2 hours ago offering to babysit, so I took her up and am having a few beers and playing online poker with DH original.gif

That's what they say.

But the douchebag brother is just being so, so horrible at the moment, and I'm in such an angry place about it, that I can't give him credit for anything nice.

But I'm drinking it any way.  Through lips pursed like a cat's a*se.

Blackcat, that totally sucks.

Mixed week here too. DD has entered the terrible three's.

Still so hot here in Canberra. Had my one beer and on to soda water.

A big day tomorrow, DS is competing in his first nippers carnival.

A break up by text - I feel for you. - enjoy the pear cider

Thanks ladies. I'm keep having to bite my tongue, there are things I really really want to say. But I know no good will come of it, I just want him to actually feel some of the hurt. Hopefully that doesn't make me a bad person... I mean, the guy didn't even bother to get me a Christmas present, despite me giving him three months warning, and telling him all about going shopping for his. Hopefully he thinks of me every time he uses the things I bought for him  ph34r.gif
